A truly wonderful tour. Some history, some movie location sight seeing and great fun driving these brilliant little cars around the twisting mountain roads. Bravo to the whole team at Vintage 500! I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to get off the tourist bus and have some great fun!

We spent a week in Taormina and the "500 Vintage Etna Wine Roads" tour was a trip highlight. Overall our experience exceeded our expectations at an extremely reasonable price. Danillo (the owner of the company), his guide and another helper met us exactly on time, with the cars ready to go, at our hotel in Taormina. After some brief instruction... More

My boyfriend and I booked an afternoon Godfather tour. We were really excited, especially when three beautiful fiat 500s pulled up outside our hotel! Danilo and the team were all really friendly, they explained how the old engine and everything worked and away we went. The tour was really intimate; it was just us, the guides and a lovely french...

This was the highlight of our trip. a fantastic novel experience with hours of driving around Sicily. Our guides were in the lead car and our guide spoke great English and was very personable. Would highly recommend.

We booked this tour with hopes that it would be fun, but it was more than that, it was a way to be part of the experience. Many times we visit a place but don't actually participate. With this tour, you are part of the landscape and really have an opportunity to go back in time and have a real... More

This has to be a "must" for anyone visiting the Taormina area. The guys were extremely helpful and efficient from our initial enquiry to the day of the tour. The cars were immaculate and well maintained. The route we took was wonderful and the towns visited were so beautiful. Natalie our tour guide was really informative sharing great pieces of... More

We decided to book a Godfather tour just a couple of weeks before our trip to Sicily as my partner is a big Godfather fan and also a big Fiat 500 fan (although I am the driver in the family!). On the morning of our tour we met the guys very near our hotel so was very convenient and got... More

We booked our Godfather Tour a month before our holiday, Antonio was very prompt answering all our question by email before we booked. We met Natalie & Antonio at the main bus station in Taormina at the arranged time where we were given a lesson on driving car. From here we followed the lead car up the coast road up... More

We went the Etna Wine roads tour and we really enjoyed ourselves. The staff is young and were all really friendly and informative. We were celebrating my girlfriend's birthday and were really surprised when we were at the wine tasting when out of nowhere they came out with a birthday cake and singing 'happy birthday'. We really apriciated the thought... More

Having booked our 500 experience 8 months ahead of our holiday, we received an e-mail the day before our trip to confirm, then Natalie (our guide) turned up at our hotel just outside Taormina, then Antonio & Danilo arrived shortly afterwards with the 500's, just as they said they would. The drive through the Sicilian countryside was fantastic, stopping off... More
