We had a great time, We had a great guide. We love the ear buds so you can hear the guide from where ever you are. We traveled in a group of about 15. We were given time to look around both towns, Castelmola was not as busy as Taormina. The scenery is beautiful. We were very pleased. there was no problem with meeting up with the tour

This was my first experience with aviator and I look forward to using them again. My shore excursion in Messina was easy to book, the
representatives were on time, and we had a lovely experience. While driving to Taromina Mariarita gave us information on the area.
Her assistants gave us a bottle of water and Pasta di Mandorle which is a popular treat from Messina. We all enjoyed the day tour
but Taromina was the highlight. We had time to walk around and enjoy lunch on our own. I would highly recommend this day trip
to anyone who is in Messina for the first time.

Very nice excursion, proffesionel. Better then the excursions the ship offer and cheaper. Clever guides, two young ladies, and we got a Messina cake and bottle of water each in the bus. We also got their telephone number to wear around the neck if we got lost! Very charming places Caselmoda and Taormina.

I would rate the destination as only 4.5 stars. The rest (drive, guide, bus, organization) were definitely 5 stars.

This is such a beautiful location and Discover Messina did an excellent job of providing the highlights of both areas we toured and then giving us free time to explore on our own. We enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it.

Awesome, awesome trip. Much cheaper than the cruise ship. It's amazing how these buses can go through these tiny streets, but our driver was amazing. You would think he was driving a car the way he maneuvered. Great AC on the bus and it was very clean. Taormina was my favorite. Food so good.
