Everything about this tour was excellent...from the driver to the quality of the Mercedes he drove. We loved this trip to Mt. Etna.

This tour was a little bit more than we wanted to pay but it was terrific. Our driver tailored the day to our wants and needs, was there right on time in fact, a little bit early which was great and got us back to our ship exactly when we asked him too. Taormina should be on your list of must see places in Sicily. It was beautiful with wonderful food, views and shopping.

OUr guide, Tommy, was excellent. We very much enjoyed this excursion. He was right on time picking us up and made sure we made it back to our cruise ship within plenty of time. He was quite knowledgeable about the area, history and so forth. We learned a lot, saw a lot, and were entertained. I would recommend this co.
