5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This was an amazing tour. We spent time at the lava pits at Mount Etna. There was a small square with shops where you could buy souvenirs made from lava rock. Next we went to the Gambino Winery. We were greeted with a glass of their white wine and beautiful views of the vineyard. Once inside we were treated to delicious food and wine pairings. We are now lifelong Gambino Winery customers. I would highly recommend this tour. Unfortunately, we did not make it to Taormina because we chose to spend so much time at the lava pits and winery. It worked out in our favor though as there was a political summit happening in Taormina while we were in Sicily. Our driver was friendly and happy to share information about Sicily and the sights we were seeing. Again, highly recommend this tour!
