    Booking through to drop off was perfect. Instructions for pick up via WhatsApp were perfect also. Celia, our tour guide was extremely friendly, clear and knowledgable and this made our visit all the more enjoyable and memorable. Taormina was such a stunning place to visit with 2.5 hours free time giving us a flavour of the wonders to see and do.

    We had an amazing time in Sicily. Chiara conducted a superb tour. We learn not only about the "Godfather" history, film locations, and behind-the-scenes information, but a great deal about cultural, economic, and other important aspects of Sicily. All done in a very professional way-- from pick up to end of your back at port. Gracias Chiara!

    Chiara was an amazing guide! Great knowledge and very organized trip. Our cruise port changed from Messina to Catania and they had it all organized for us so we didn't have to miss the excursion. Savoca was amazing and charming. Lives the Godfather tour. Then did a walking tour of Taormina and had enough time for lunch.

    Was skeptical after reading some reviews of this tour, but it was everything i could have hoped for, and more…tge bartender at vitelli’s even offered to sell me the shirt off his back because they were out of my size.

    We came to this tour with some friends from our cruise ship. The tour guide met us at the Port as stated, but when we got on the bus there were over 30 people instead of the advertised 15. This is deceptive practice in advertising. When asked about the maximum of 15 people, the guide completely ignored the question. Additionally, though we selected English, the entire tour we listened in English then Spanish. Again, deceptive advertising because we bought an English speaking tour not a bilingual tour. The guide said we picked the language and they would put a maximum of two languages per group. That is not revealed in the advertising. When we reached the first stop we visited two sites then had an hour on our own. All was well. The next site we went to was very congested and crowded and because we didn't have any headsets, it was impossible to understand what she was saying. We left the group at that point for lunch on our own and met back later....only to find the bus AC apparently was not working well. We were all stressed out when the guide revealed they left someone behind and after leaving we turned back when the people called to come get them.. we had 10 minutes to spare when we finally boarded the ship Getting our money back for four people is not enough. This company should pay you to put up with this false advertising. Save your money and stress!
