Excellent Tour Guide
Enjoyed a great tour from Messina port with tour guide Ecaterina. Simply amazing how she managed to engage so many of us on the tour. She is so enthusiastic and passionate about her adopted home of Sicily. Clearly cares about her home and her clients. Infectious enthusiasm- we cannot wait to return for a longer visit next year.
Discover Messina Sicily
Chiara was a wonderful tour guide. It was a small group in a nice comfortable van. We had time in Castelmola to wander & shop after a walking tour with much interesting history shared.
Taormina was delightful and more that 2 hrs to have a leisurely lunch after about a half hr walking tour, including the greek theater.
Both cities were amazing with beautiful views and shopping, of course.
We had lunch at a small restaurant after many choices.
Well worth the time
First, our guide was Mariarita and she was delightful and well-versed in the area. The tour locations were spectacular. To fully enjoy them, prepare for some significant walking and climbing stairs.
We spent a wonderful day visiting Casteloma and Taormina. The guide Elisa was great and we had a fun day of beautiful scenery, history, shopping and food.
Beautiful place Taormina must see and visit
Lots of beauty and history
