    Marco met us at our vacation rental. He quickly showed us the neighborhood where we were staying in the old town. He pointed out some of the eateries, what to order there, the novelty shops, etc. He took us to buildings that would have no exterior visual appeal, where, upon entry, were absolutely stunning.

    His English is quite good. He gave us lots of history, mythological lore and fun narratives.

    He had secured a seasoned driver to take us up the narrow, snaky curves to ascend to Castelmola. It is a treasure of a small town with great views. We also sampled almond wine in a risqué bar. Quite fun.

    We did not do the food and wine tasting option. Overall, a fun morning and early afternoon with a Marco.

    He made it a memorable day for our group. He was caring, fun and generous with his history of the areas. Our driver, Louisa, got us to and from our stops safely and conscientiously.

    Our guide, Marco, was excellent! He showed us everything in both cities. His knowledge of his country was incredible. Often he was able to get us off the usual tourist paths and back into areas of Taormina and Castelmola that only a native would know of. I would give this tour my highest recommendation.

    100% scam !!! You should screen your tour operators. Illegal russians with counterfeit money dishonest scheme.

    This could not have been a better experience. The tour company did a really good job of providing us information before we arrived in port so we could easily find our driver, Carmelo. Carmelo gave us a lot of helpful information about Sicily, had local snacks (including fresh cherries from his own trees), and made us feel completely relaxed and welcome. After arriving in Taormina, we met our guide, Josey, and she gave us the most indepth and tailored tour of Taormina and Castelmola. This tour sets the bar for all excursions in the future and will be hard to beat. Highly recommend others to take this tour, and absolutely recommend paying the 10 euros to see the Greek Theater...the view and stories behind this relic are unbeatable.

    We were there on a Sunday and most places were closed, but our tour guide was excellent. He accommodated our needs and was very knowledgeable and pleasant. He really went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our stay and saw as much as possible. Taormina is a must. Beautiful town, small shops, great to walk around. He took us to Savoca, where the movie, Godfather was filmed. Beautiful scenery had a gelato and walked around. You can visit the church on the top of the mountain.

    Very nice man showed us around the resort towns and we added the food and wine option. We got a very nice sample platter of food and cappuccino. No wine was available and you are able to sample almond wine in castlemora without an added fee. All in all it was a very nice day and I would recommend it
