Sheryl_L, Jun 2022
Not a “tour”, just an over priced driver. He was nice but his English was poor. He offered no info about the area and couldn’t answer any of our questions. Picked us up at cruise port and drove to first stop. Put us out and said see you in 2 hrs. Drove to second stop, put us out, see you in 1 hr. Drove us back to cruise port. This 6 hr “tour” lasted 4.5 hrs. Disappointed.

We had a private tour and the guides and where they took us was out of this world. I considered it quite reasonable considering we had the van and guide for most of the day to ourselves
First impression with the tour was...
Lourves_V, Oct 2016
First impression with the tour was not pleasant. We book for a Spanish Tour ended up with an English tour in a very uncomfortable station wagon. Even Cecilia, the tour guide speaks spanish, explanations were taken too long and boring the other couple that join the tour. They should be more honest -- by selling bilingual tour ... Once we started rolling and appreciating the beauty of the area, we start enjoying the tour. Catelmola is small town where the clock seems to had stopped. It's an amazing town that reflects culture of the area. You can appreciate Mt. Etna. Taormina is also an amazing place. A must see. We had lunch at the Cyclope. Excellent fresh food. Tour guide did not walk with us through Castelmola and Taomina. She did so on the way out of Taormina and Messina. In Messina we visited two churches - the original one just outside and the one built to replace it. Ended up having a nice snack - at local bakery. Wear confortable shoes and fresh clothes and be careful with the language.

This tour was absolutely the best...
Romona_H, Oct 2016
This tour was absolutely the best! A Will do it again and with the same local guide, Sicily4you....Chiara. I cannot put into words the beautiful scenery and majesty of the coast. Castelmola was postcard perfect and shopping in Taormina was the best. This tour stayed with me throughout our 12 days abroad. Lovely and I highly recommend it.
