    Too little time at Mt Etna. Could not take cable car to top. TOO MUCH time for shopping in Messina. Time would be better spent at MT. Etna. Mt. Etna was reason for this tour not shopping

    Wear proper shoes! This was so much fun and the perfect amount of time to see the beautiful volcano and breathtaking Taormina.

    The french guide Sara was very kind and was interesting. However, you do not stay long enough at Etna to have time to visit. You only have time for a quick view.

    Our guide was good and the van was ok. Every seat was taken so it was tight inside.

    Worse tour I took during my 11 day cruise. Chiada barely spoke the entire time. When she did speak it was very hard to understand. The bus driver got lost and it took us over 3 hours to get to Mt Etna. It was basically a bus service. The other family on the tour said it was horrible as well.

    We didn't get to go to Mt. Etna because of an eruption that morning. Instead, our guide, Chiarra, took us to the town, Savoca, where the wedding scene from the Godfather was filmed. She slowed down at the tour members request because it was uphill and hard for us older folks. She did talk in Italian a lot more than English. There were only two Italians on the bus with 15 English speakers. One couple from New York called her on it and she correct herself. But she was interrupted several times in Italian and that was confusing for us English speakers. Chiarra did very good with us at the end though and gave us extra time in the town itself. Taormina was beautiful and we had a great lunch there.
