Martina and Sergio were our guide and driver. This is a lovely area with a lot of history but our 20 year old guide admited she did not know much about the area and had limited English. Would recommend the tour but with a more experienced guide.

Review of Messina to Taormina & Castelmola

Catania Shore Excursion: Catania to Taormina and Castelmola | Nov 2019
Overall the tour was very good. We felt a bit rushed at Castelmola and it seemed like we could have spent a bit more time there as we did get back to our pick up point ahead of schedule.

Taormina and Castelmola from Messina Small Group Tour | Oct 2019
Due to a miscommunication by the company of the pick up time, we missed the beginning of the tour. When we met up with the rest of the people the areas we visited were very scenic. Unfortunately, we did not have as much time in Taormina as we should have. Other than that the tour was good.

Catania Shore Excursion: Catania to Taormina and Castelmola | Oct 2019
Our guide Michale (Michael) was very informative and gave us all a very good overview of Sicily. He also had a good sense of humour. We visited a number of interesting places and there was plenty of time to explore the towns and villages. Our guide was also a very good driver and this is important as not a lot of road rules apply in Sicily.. I strongly recommend this tour

Messina and Taormina City Tour from Messina | Jan 2018

Our guide met us at the pier and took us on an amazing tour of Messina and Taormina! Our guide was well versed and very comfortable with his knowledge of Sicily! He showed us the beauty of Taormina and we had amazing views of Mt Etna! We had a private tour for just the four of us and we loved every minute! At the end of the tour he dropped us off, at our request, at the best cannoli bakery on Sicily! Fortunately, it was just across the road from the port!! We marched onboard with four of the most delicious, fresh cannoli's ever!!

Catania Shore Excursion: Catania to Taormina and Castelmola | Oct 2017

This was brilliant! Our guide...Michele....was interesting, friendly and entertaining. He was there to pick us up from the port when the ship docked and was very flexible in how long we could stay at places, which made for an excellent personalized trip. Taormina was gorgeous and Michele even took us for a quick drive past some of Catania's main sights at the end of the trip.

The Godfather Movie Tour from Giardini Naxos - Small Group Tour | Sep 2017

Interesting tour that took us to a few different sites, some that would be difficult to get to on your own. Time/pace was good. There were some more strenuous walks that might be a problem to some people. Would have liked to have been shown pictures of the scenes from the movie to compare with what we saw as you had to remember the scene. Since this is an old movie, there was not much background information about the filming so that also could have been enhanced by more content investigation.

Tour to Etna Volcano and Taormina from Messina | Feb 2017

We unfortunately couldn't make it up the mountain to tour Etna being that a snow storm came in the night before and the roads were treacherous. Gino tried his best to drive through it but it became too much for our vehicle to deal with. With that being said, our tour guide Antonella and driver Gino did the best they could to make our trip worth while! Antonella was very upbeat and pleasant and also very knowledgeable of the area. We all had a great laugh when things weren't going as planned because she kept us all positive and that's what matters most! Gino was a fantastic driver and made sure to stop along the way so we could take pictures. All in all, we really enjoyed out visit to Sicily and hope that when we return, we are lucky enough to be joined by the same tour guides! They even topped off our trip by giving us each a famous Sicilian cannoli to enjoy. Thanks again to Antonella and Gino for making our trip AMAZING!

This was an amazing trip. Taormina was a lovely town. There were spectacular view of Mount Etna. Castelmola has a very interesting pub where we sampled almond wine. Our driver was fantastic Michael. Would definitely do this again.

Private Tour to Taormina and Castelmola from Messina | 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.

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.

Our guide was at the pier when we arrived. He was very friendly and courteous. His English was not as fluent as we had hoped so communicating was somewhat strained. Taormina was spectacular and not to be missed.

Taormina Shore Excursion from Messina | Aug 2016

This ended up being a private excursion which was great. Taorimina was a cute little Italain town and fun to visit. Driver was very good - there were traffic issues on way back to Messina and he was in constant contact with other drivers and found us a better way back to town. Driver stopped in a few spots in Messina as well. Driver's spoke ok English.
