Fabulous Excursion

This is a trip well worth taking. Our guide, Roberto, has a wealth of information showing us sights on the way to the farm. He was very accommodating and interesting to listen to. The ride on the horses was enjoyable as we rode along vineyards and olive trees to see the beautiful landscape.We were treated to a delicious luncheon of vegetables, meats, cheeses, fruit and wine all of which was plentiful. This was a highlight of our trip. I highly recommend taking this tour. You won't be sorry you did!
Fantastic horse ride and lunch

My wife and I enjoyed every part of this tour! Gianluigi was our tour guide and made us feel very relaxed and he was very friendly, telling us about the area and answering any questions that we had. The horse ride was done very well and the stable personnel were very professional and cared about our safety.The horses were very well cared for and going up the country hillside was breath-taking. We also really enjoyed the lunch at the Tuscan style restaurant/ farm and the food and staff were great. The whole experience was well worth the cost, and it made for a very memorable time in Sicily.
Great fun for our family!

Our tour guide and driver picked us up right when we got off the ship and were so pleasant, Fabulina was our guide and Louisa our driver. The Mercedes van was very clean and nice. We drove through gorgeous Sicilian countryside for a little over an hour to a farm that was nestled in olive trees and vineyard. We rode 5 very well taken care of and beginner horses with helmets through the vineyard for about an hour. Very slow easy ride with my children ages 9 and 11, and my niece age 19 and myself age 42 and my sister in law age 45. We then ate at the family restaurant all authentic Italian food that was very relaxed. Also with family made wine. It was a very cloudy day (which is atypical) so we could not enjoy the views of Mt. Etna but if it had been a clear day I am sure it would have been gorgeous. We really enjoyed this adventure and loved our tour guide and driver! Great for a family!

We had a great excursion to the country side in Sicily. Our driver, Marco, was excellent and explained the area. The owner of the Farm, Franco, and his family were great and the food excellent. Great day!

Our guide Marco provided detail on Sicily and the countryside with warmth and humour as he drove us from our Taormina hotel to the farmhouse. Once there, he walked us to the stables where our young riding guide mounted us and we rode through the foothill farmlands of Mt. Aetna. The grapes were on the vines with another 1-2 months for picking. We watched those vines being trimmed by the farmhands. We were escorted throughout by a frisky colt of one of our horses. After the ride, Marco escorted us to a private dining hall and began us on an adventure in tasting the amazing Sicilian cuisine prepared from arguably the best produce, dairy and meat products anywhere. What a treat! Afterward Marco returned us to our hotel with more narrative on The Sicilian culture. An excellent guide for an excellent day.

We have taken many Viator tours, and this one is perhaps our most highly recommended. This memorable outing was a highlight of our Sicily visit. Our personable guide promptly picked us up at our hotel and drove us through small villages off the beaten track to the farmhouse. Along the way, we chatted about local culture, his experience living in the small villages of Sicily, and the like. One issue: on the drive, we had to wait for several minutes to allow a sheepherder to move his flock across the road. The horseback ride was a relaxing stroll through vineyards and small farms. The horseback guide exchanged familiar greetings with every farmer we passed along the way. The traditional Sicilian lunch was excellent, apparently all items coming from the farm. I could go on...just amazing!
