OMG- so worth the money. Pickup point was very central. It was us (myself, wife, teenage daughter) and another family that we met at the pickup point. We all got along great and had a lot to talk about. Dario was our guide and was helpful and amazing. The boat tour was fantastic, the water crystal clear and refreshing. Highlight of our trip. No regrets whatsoever.

My daughter and I took the tour in July and it was totally amazing! Dario and Simone were incredibly friendly and explained all the sights to us. We even got to swim off the boat which was a great experience. The lunch after the tour was a delicious 3 course meal and had the friendliest staff.

This is one tour worth doing in Taormina.

We met our guide Dario at a central, easy to find location. We were taken by minivan to board a boat where we met the equally charming Simone. These 2 young guys were very knowledgeable, super friendly and made the trip so much fun. They were happy to take pics for us whilst we were swimming at the 2 points where we enjoyed the clear clean waters off the Taormina coast. Views of the coastline and commentary was fantastic. We were given lovely cold fruit salad on board as well as a local wine and when this part of the tour ended we enjoyed a massive 3 course lunch at Isola Bella looking out to sea. A great day. 2 great guides. Would do this day again for sure- highly recommend taking it. It was great value. Perfect

This tour was memorable from beginning to end! Dario greeted us at the meeting location and was very gracious. We were then driven to coastline where we boarded boats and our adventure began. The coastline and views are amazing. We then anchored off shore, swam and enjoyed the company of the other tour participants. After a few hours we docked and had an incredible lunch. This was a highlight of our trip to Sicily!

Great tour on the water. Great fun swimming in two different locations. I would recommend bringing along a mask and snorkel if you have one. The lunch afterwards was also great!

Good fun, with two swim stops. Stunning scenery of the Taomina coast, finished off with a delicious lunch in a typical Sicilian restaurant on the sea front at Isola Bella. A great day out.
