Alfredo met us right on time and is very knowledgable and loves what he does. He took an interest in all the people in our group. We learned about all the food and wine we tasted and the origins of each. There was a ton of food! We had a light dinner based on some of the reviews we read, but I can tell you there was more than enough food. Alfredo also taught us about many of the local traditions and customs while walking through Taormina
Alfredo, our host, very informative and entertaining. Great food and wine. Excellent value for money.
We met Di Maura Alfredo in Taormina with two other couples. Alfredo was extremely gregarious, humerous and a delight to accompany on a food and wine tour. We made three stops in two hours. The first was different white wines with mussels, swordfish, shrimp and anchovies. The second was the reds with bruschetta, olives, prosciutto and cheeses. The third was a dessert stop with four varieties and appropriate dessert wines. Alfredo explained the grapes for each wine and the best way ro taste and serve them.
I would rate this tour five stars as it expresses the Italian's love for foods and wines.
Alfredo our guide was delightful. Loved the food and his explanations of the importance of high quality local food.
Good tour, great host! This was a great way to spend a few evening hours in Taormina. More food and wine than expected.
3 stops at 3 great places.
3 or 4 Typical Sicilian fish courses at the first stop with good white wine. The portions offered to the group were generous and the quality of the food really good. Off for a short walk and some information about Taormina and discovering some of the quieter back streets and alleyways. The second stop was a wine bar where we had plates of salami, prosciutto and local cheeses with 3 different generous glasses of red wine. Our final stop was on the busy Corso Umberto at a traditional pastry shop for canolli, almond pastries and other sweet goodies. Good tour, good guide and great company. We revisited all the venues over our next few days in town
Wonderful! Appetizers and wine at the first stop. Antipasto and wine at the second stop, dessert and drinks at the third stop. What's not to like?
Fantastic tour. Good food, good wine and brilliant fun, made all the more special by our tour guide. Highly recommend this tour for a good evening.
We got the time of the tour wrong - thought it was 7 and at 7:15 we decided they had left without us or cancelled the tour with no warning. Went to have a drink and had just ordered when the phone rang. They had been waiting for us for 15 minutes and had given up and gone to the first stop. They were going to be there for at least 30 minutes and told us they would wait. Sure enough, we caught up with them. Actually the tour began at 7:30, my mistake.
The tour guide, Martine was quite gracious as were the others on the tour. There were 8 of us in all, 4 from the UK and 2 from Berlin.
Martine has a great sense of humor and we laughed, ate and drank for longer than the tour allowed. It was great fun and I recommend it. Don't plan on dinner after because you will be full!
Apps at one restaurant, entree at another, dessert at a third, all with wine matched to the food. Alfredo our guide was knowledgeable about Sicilian food, wine, and history, AND a ton of fun. Highly recommend.
This was a fun tour introducing you to some Italian dishes and plenty of wine. We had two plates of seafood including risotto which included samples of white wine, and a very generous meat and cheese plate at a different restaurant which included samples of red wine, then finally we were off to a different restaurant for samples of desserts as well as almond wine, limoncello, and one other dessert wine. Alfreddo was our guide and he was very friendly and informative.

This tour was great! We did it on our first night in Taormina, so it was a good way for us to explore and learn more about the city. Alfredo was an excellent tour guide - very knowledgeable and entertaining. The restaurants he took us to were great - plenty of delicious food and wine throughout the tour. And it was an ideal size tour group. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

This tour was amazing. The evening flew by so fast. The food was wonderfull and the guide also. Would definitaly recomment it!
Alfredo was incredible! Highly knowledgeable and funny. Gave the group space to eat and mingle while making sure we knew the story behind the plates in front of us. Come hungry!!!!
Our small and friendly group comprised three Americans, two Irish, two English and a Brazilian. We visited three locations and sampled a wide selection of Sicilian food and more than adequate quantities of the island's alcoholic products. Highly enjoyable and convivial.
Our guide, Alfredo was the best. So knowledgeable about Sicily. The food was excellent and a great representation of Sicilian food
Great tour and guide (Alfredo.) Nice way to get to know Taormina and relax one night. Highly recommend!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, and Alfredo, our guide, was fabulous. We started our vacation in Taormina by taking this walking tour the first night, and it was a great way to orient ourselves to the town. We were offered a very nice assortment of food and drink, and had the opportunity to try some new dishes. Excellent value for the price! Our group was about 8 people, and that was perfect for socializing. Really enjoyed it and highly recommend!
The food tour was delicious! There was so much different food and lots of different wine to try, you definitely eat a full dinner by the end of the tour - so don't eat before hand. The guide was very knowledgeable about the different traditional dishes and local wines.
We went to 3 different restaurants, from a trattoria, to an enoteca and finished off at a pasticeri bar with limoncello and almond wine.
Lots of fun with a good group of people, highly recommended!
Great Craic. Guide personable and interesting. The food very good and the wines excellent.
The food and the wine were excellent. Alfredo, the guide was exceptional. He was wealth of knowledge about Sicily, the culture and the history. He was also very funny, entertaining and truly a nice guy. My wife and I would highly recommend the tour and Alfredo.
Really good tour generous amounts of wine and food, great tour guide and excellent company. I learnt from a Californian eye Doctor that Trump has no intention of winning the election but has plans to start a reality show What I would have done as President and make squillions! Sounded quite plausible at the end of several glasses of wine.
Great tour with a really generous amount of wine and food, great Tour Guide who knew everything about anything interesting and really good company aprt from the hypocrite who enjoyed Sicily but wanted to leave Europe.
Very good experience. This was one of my best experiences in Europe this year!
Our guide, Alejandra and her companion, were both extremely beautiful, fashionable, and good conversation as well as highly knowledgeable about the history and development of the food in Milan and northern Italy!
