We could have probably skipped Castelmola and spent more time in Taormina, which was so lovely. Our guide was wonderful and I would recommend this excursion wholeheartedly.

We really enjoyed this tour, and our guide, Chiara, took wonderful care of us. You see a lot in about a 6 hour timeframe. We especially enjoyed walking the streets Taormina. Make sure you sample the cannolis! Seriously, if you're coming off a cruise, this is the way to go.

Great tour! Taormina was very fun and Castelmola was such a cute town with beautiful views.Olivia and team were wonderful which made for a very fun day. I recommend this tour.

Two beautiful cities well worth seeing. Very picturesque places and our guides were informative, friendly and open to minor changes in the tour when the vast majority requested extra time or something similar.

We had a great time, We had a great guide. We love the ear buds so you can hear the guide from where ever you are. We traveled in a group of about 15. We were given time to look around both towns, Castelmola was not as busy as Taormina. The scenery is beautiful. We were very pleased. there was no problem with meeting up with the tour

This was my first experience with aviator and I look forward to using them again. My shore excursion in Messina was easy to book, the
representatives were on time, and we had a lovely experience. While driving to Taromina Mariarita gave us information on the area.
Her assistants gave us a bottle of water and Pasta di Mandorle which is a popular treat from Messina. We all enjoyed the day tour
but Taromina was the highlight. We had time to walk around and enjoy lunch on our own. I would highly recommend this day trip
to anyone who is in Messina for the first time.

Very nice excursion, proffesionel. Better then the excursions the ship offer and cheaper. Clever guides, two young ladies, and we got a Messina cake and bottle of water each in the bus. We also got their telephone number to wear around the neck if we got lost! Very charming places Caselmoda and Taormina.

We purposely choose to take a tour not from the cruise company because we want smaller groups. However we were a full large bus load. We first went to Castelmola which had very little to see and our guide did not take us up to the Castle or tell us anything about it. She just pointed up and said we could go on own. Unfortunately it was a bit rainy and so very few stores were open nor was the church. She gave us almost an hour to stand around in the rain. Next we went to Taormina where all 40 of us trouped behind the guide as she quickly talked about things that we weren't at yet because half of us were at the end of the trail and when we finally got there we weren't sure what to look at. We visited the ancient theatre and our guide gave a talk about it-fairly brief and then told us we had an hour or so on our own. Not a lot to do and learned very little about both towns. Our tour of Messina occurred at the end of the day and was very brief and we never got out of bus. I feel the driver did a far better job than our guides!

Amazing tour, we love the service provided by the tour guide, she is super friendly and cute, good information and enough time for us to take photo as well. Super cool driver with excellent driving skills!
