Giovanna was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and professional. However, she left before the wine tasting was over. As a result, we were forgotten about. The owner of the Red and White Wine House was too busy with one other customers to pay us any attention. After asking the waiter several times for our 3rd and last wine, I was ready to leave without it, but the others in my party wanted to stay since we had already paid for it. Upon our arrival with Giovanna, the chef/owner was very personable, telling us how he had just opened. Our father was a chef and we knew first hand how difficult it is to start up a business, so we were determined to spend as much money as possible there, by staying for dinner after the tasting and ordering multiple bottles to both enjoy there and take home with us. Sadly we were
ignored for what the owner probably thought were higher paying customers.
The walking tour was very interesting as we walked through a park and then on to the amphitheater. We were then taken to a local restaurant for the wine tasting which was really exceptional. Three wines were presented along with a nice selection of appetizers. It was a fun and enjoyable evening. We would highly recommend it!
Very knowledgeable guide as usual with all the Viator trips that we have done in Italy and Spain. Learnt a great deal about Taormina's history and architecture. My wife and I were on our own so we had a private tour. Good wine tasting and we stayed for evening meal which was fantastic !
Mario, our tour guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable, interesting, and fun to tour with. Would highly recommend this tour. We have traveled many cities in Italy but Taormina has become my favorite. I hope I can return some day.
