Johnny and Marco were wonderful guides. We had only a few brief cruise hours to spend. We saw Etna and got a comprehensive overview and a bit of a walk. When we spied an interesting food fest, they were flexible enough to accommodate our curiousity. The winery visit was delightful.
Excellent pair to give you a taste of Sicily.
