Very enjoyable!

Our tour guide Cecilia was GREAT! She was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I have found that a
tour guide can either make or break and tour and she certainly made our day. Really liked all the stops
we made and the new information we gathered.

Messina wow! Chiara our Guide Wow!
Chiara was our guide & Antonio our driver. The vehicle that picked us up was very clean Antonio a very competent driver & very pleasant. Chiara is an amazing lady, her knowledge of Messina is vast we saw so much & learned many interesting facts. We were so impressed we booked a second tour with them. On the day of our tour there was a street food festival in Messina Chiara accompanied us to the festival & walked around with us explaining how the festival worked, this was a surprise extra

Detallado paseo solo para los 4 con Elisa
El 31 de julio paramos en Messina como cruceristas y queríamos dar un pequeño paseo. Fue solo para nosotros 4 y duró más tiempo de lo programado. Elisa vino a buscarnos al puerto y nos llevó y explicó todo con mucho interés y dedicación. Al final probamos los famosos cannolis. Un auténtico placer!!! Volveremos a Messina para seguir descubriendo Sicilia.
