What a beautful area!! Miriam was our tour guide and Mr. Gino our driver and they were amazing!! Miriam was a wealth of knowledge and able to answer all of our questions. We learned so much about the area, the culture, food etc. Mr. Gino was an excellent driver and we felt very safe. They were very patient with us when we shopped to long and made sure we got back to the boat in plenty of time. I would highly recommend this tour and especially our tour guides.

Beautiful Taormina.

Our tour guide Alina was good. Gave us lots of great information of Messina. The drive to both towns were thrilling (once we got close to Castelmora). The driver was fantastic! If I could change anything I’d skip castelmola to spend more time in Taormina. Most of the shops were closed when we arrived. Spent 1 hr there. We had 2 hours in Taormina. Not enough time to explore the town, & grab lunch. We did a quick run into the amphitheater just to get a quick look. All went smoothly. Nice group.

Unfortunately the weather was overcast and when we got to Castelmola there wasn’t too much we could see. However we loved Tourmina, especially the theatre that dates back to 300BC.

Wonderful Day in Taormina

This was one of the most wonderful part of course we had on our cruise. Taormino is simply a beautiful place to visit. The panoramic view along with its city is breathtaking. I recommend people spend as much time as they can there. Our guide/driver was Michelle.(Michael). It is wonderful to see and be guided by someone who has such a wonderful understanding and enthusiasm for their country. During our ride to Taormino he gave us a wonderful review of Messina and Taramina. He also made some excellent recommendations for lunch as well as finding the best cannoli and gelato in Messina . Which was right around the corner from the Port of Messima. Spectacular place to visit.

Taste of Sicily from Messina to Taormina.

Our tour guide, Elenis, was wonderful. She gave us interesting and relevant information on the bus as we were traveling. Taormina was a must see. Charming and beautiful architecture and vistas. Wish we had more time there, because as it was lunchtime, we had little time to sight see after eating. Would have liked to get to amphitheater. I would have paid more for that to have been part of tour with guide up front and stayed in Taormina longer, skipping Castlemora. Then wish we had a bit more time in Messina.

Due to a miscommunication by the company of the pick up time, we missed the beginning of the tour. When we met up with the rest of the people the areas we visited were very scenic. Unfortunately, we did not have as much time in Taormina as we should have. Other than that the tour was good.
