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

I booked the Godfather Tour in May 2014 emailing Danilo a few times and finally paying a deposit. Then, without further communication between us, he turned up in the Taormina bus station in August 2014 along with Natalie & Antonio bang on 9:30 as agreed. I was very impressed. Danilo's tuition about driving the car is excellent, he cares about... More

We decided this year to spend with our two teenage boys ten days in Sicily. As an adept of vintage cars I decided I wanted to drive an old Fiat during my holidays and guess what.... i found the website of 500VintageTours. Contacted out of Belgium, I received a swift answer and proposal. In Sicily, Danilo checked two days before... More

We went on the Mount Etna Wine Tour with Natalie, Danilo and Antonio from 500 Vintage Tours. From start to finish the tour was absolutely fantastic. The car was a pleasure to drive and had been very well looked after. On the way to the Gambino Wine Estate, our main destination for the day, we stopped off at a number... More

While planning my trip to Taormina, I knew I wanted to do an Etna Jeep Tour. I found a company online and contacted them. Antonio quickly responded to me. He had mentioned that they no longer do the jeep tours but he could get me connected with someone who does. That he did! He spent over a week with me,... More

We took the 500 Vintage tour when our cruise ship stopped near Taormina for a day. Danilo was right on time to meet us, and we followed him and a car with fellow cruisers up, up and up to the lovely village of Savoca. After admiring the beautiful view, we drove to Taormina, where we had the option of touring... More

I have spent one of the most beautiful days of my life driving in a little fiat 500 from the 70' through Taormina and surrounding towns. Beautiful landscapes, great wine, sunshine and exceptionally kind staff - what else do you need! ? Natalie, Danilo and Antonio all spoke good English and were real experts of local history and culture. No... More

What a great way to see Sicily. Cruising through the countryside in this wonderful car with the roof down couldn't be bettered. Danilo guided us up the Alcantara Gorge to the Arab church and then up to a vineyard where we had a wine tasting and lunch before heading back to the hotel. A perfect day.

I was trying to book a tour with this company for my father birthday. First of all it was hard to reach them. It took them time to answer emails and calls. Afterward, we agreed on tour and date. I sent all information they were asking for a booking right away. Their manager was enforcing me to take a guide... More

Absolutely false! Anna has booked the tour by e-mail and everything was immediately confirmed. Two days before the date scheduled for the excursion, a man called us and asked for availability on the same date. Of course we replied that we were sorry but we had already confirmed another group for the same date. However, this man has forgotten to... More
