Amazing trip
Gustavo_T, Jul 2022
Our tour guide Michael was amazing. He provided lots of information about Messina and Sicily. We loved the stop to get olive oil & wine. Mt Etna was wonderful as well as the city of Taormina. Then we got to stop and see the clock tower & church in Messina. A terrific day!
No more Viator

Absolute bad experience with this excursion. First of all, they park quite far from disembarking area. Have to walk a lot. But it is nothing in compare with what they have done! We have booked a PRIVATE tour, and paid for this, once we got to the meeting point, they advised that we will be waiting for other group! Finally there were 11 people all together. Tour guide called the boss and some one has said that driver was sick and they organised the a group tour. I have never received any apology or refund neither from the company, no from Viator. They should be responsible for such things as well. But the best punishment - never use Viator again. There are plenty other companies who provide this service. BTW, a guide was not a brilliant one, not much information.
We unfortunately couldn't make it up...
Michael S, 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!
