The tour was very informative. Our guide shared unique insights into Taormina and great suggestions for restaurants. Highly recommend!
This was my favourite experience in Taormina. Our guide, Alberto at least i think it was Alberto was fun, engaging and very knowledgeable. I love understanding the context and culture of everyplace i go, and this tours gives you a little taste of exactly that. It's historical context, its evolving construction, and changing hands we walked the main thoroughfares, and off down the small quirky passages, as our guide illuminated us along the way.
Another positive is the small group size we were just 3 and could ask our guide anything we liked about Sicily and Taormina.
Highly recommend if you enjoy a tour which allows you to enjoy your day, yet learn something new about the place you're staying in before dinner.
The guide was very good and her knowledge of the town was excellent. The pace allowed time in each area to soak up the history and ambiance. A perfect way to get oriented to this lovely area.
Martine was our tour guide. She was excellent and extremely knowledgeable and patient. Would do another tour with her again.
Really glad that we did this tour. We were staying in Taormina for a week and did lots of exploring, but doing this tour allowed us to see parts of the town we would never have discovered by ourselves, and find out lots more fascinating details about the town's history. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, and clearly knew her stuff. The walk itself is pretty leisurely, and you'll see lots of great-looking restaurants as you go round which should give you lots of ideas for places to eat when the walk is over!
The guide was very knowledgeable and the tour was very interesting. I would recommend this tour.

A very interesting tour. We had been to Taormina a couple of times and never new the back story. Our guide was a local, lifelong resident and was able to enlighten us as to the history of this amazing city.
This was great! The tour was not too big and we were treated to the history and culture if Taormina ans Sicillians hy a local guide. She knew so much and took us to many spots we visited again in the day time.
Fantastic evening tour of Taormina. I have totally fallen in love with this small hillside town. I had read reviews that it is magical and mythical and this could not be more true. Our lovely tour guide was knowledgeable, charismatic and friendly. She guided us around all the hidden gems to the town and showed us what we may not have seen if we just went with the usual tourist points of interests.
I highly recommend taking this early evening tour around this beautiful town.
Our guide, Margherita, was a delight. She made the tour come alive with her own recollections of Taormina and the area. We would do the tour again with her!
This is worth doing to get the lay of the land, get valuable historical infor,st ion and get tips as yo out of the way great eating spots.
Quite informative, but difficult to hear what was being said at times as not easy to keep up with guide on busy shopping street.

Long walks, guide has a strong accent. Stops were interesting.
A small group of 2, we walked the back streets of Taormina and discovered historic locales not usually found on one's own. Tour guide Margherita was charming. About 1 1/2 hours of colorful history and charming streets.
I enjoyed this walk through some beautiful laneways and streets in Taormina and the lovely gardens. Seeing this beautiful town at night was charming.
Really enjoyed the tour despite the very high winds which made it a bit of a struggle for both us and our guide.
Although we were not sure we would enjoy this tour, we were so glad we booked. The guide did seem to talk about the plants and flowers more than expected, but it was a great way to see the town and

Not quite what we were expecting from the tour, but it was interesting and visited places we would normally not have found ourselves.
Unfortunately our cruise line HAL changed their port departure time (without notice) and we were unable to do this tour, or we would have been late back. Disappointing and not very good for our cruise ship reputation.
First, the good: The guide was knowledgeable. The bad: 1 Nowhere in Viator's description of it is there mention that much of this tour entails scaling very steep, very uneven, rock staircases in the dark. My wife and I are both healthy and reasonably agile, but found doing this to be difficult and often unnecessary. Comments by the guide were aimed more at suggesting that we were infirm rather than cautious. 2 The tour description indicates that a visit to the Greek Theatre is included. It was not. In short, the experience was not as advertised and not particularly enjoyable.
