  • the views were quite beautiful and the tour guide and boat operator were very sweet and kind, but the tour was exceptionally long with very little historical info provided about the tour. she is clearly not a historian nor is she well versed in the history of Taormina, as she shared no information, just pointed out the names of the caves or bays that we approached. No mention of the types of fish or habitats, the history etc. It was our anniversary and she brought a bottle of champagne for all of us to share, which was very thoughtful, but were it not for that, the tour was not up to par with any o the tours we've taken throughout Europe and Italy. If you're just looking for a leisurely boat ride of the coast, this was fine.

  • Stunning location, fab weather, extremely friendly and helpful guide. Could not ask for better.

  • Wonderful experience

  • Good fun, with two swim stops. Stunning scenery of the Taomina coast, finished off with a delicious lunch in a typical Sicilian restaurant on the sea front at Isola Bella. A great day out.

  • The boat tour was disappointing although the location was amazing. The guide wasn't really a guide and she didn't tell us much about the area or history only the 5 hotels on the coast that we could see There was a passenger on the boat who kept asking questions and she didn't really have an idea.. we barely went anywhere and the bay was incredibly busy, we have to queue up behind several boats to see the caves for 2 seconds and had three swimming points two of which were full of jellyfish, there wasn't a great choice of food or wine and I felt for the price we paid it wasn't great value for money.

  • Wonderful tour guides and stunning scenery!!!

  • Fantastic morning great lunch jumped off the boat into beautiful waters highly recommended

  • Great trip..charming guide and great captain..excellent opportunity to see Taormina from a different angle
