This trip appealed because there was a possibility to see lava explosions on Stromboli at night from the boat, however, the day started well with the trip to Panarea, which was beautiful and worth the visit, but the trip should have ended there. When we went to Stromboli it wasn't as nice and when we got back on the boat... More

We arrived an hour late for this 8 hour tour b/c Taormina was a tendered port for our ship but Diego was on the dock waiting for our group of 7. We had a super day seeing Mt Etna, visiting the Gambino winery (they took excellent care of us), and seeing beautiful Sicily. Diego made a couple stops as needed... More

Engaged Sicily Shore Tours for trip in Toarmina. Simon's brother Diego showed us around Mt. Etna, God Father tour, Gambino Winery, Isola Bella, Giardini, and Castelmola. He was knowledgeable about the attractions and very friendly. A careful driver. Simon joined him to drop us at Catenia airport early in the morning. Very good service.

Myself and my partner had the pleasure of using Sicilly day tours for our tour of Taormina and Savoca for the Godfather sights. Simone was an exceptional guide !! Nothing was too much trouble, he was very knowledgable and gave us some exceptional insights into the history of Catania and the small towns we visited on the day. One of... More

We arrived at Messina on Dec. 21 and had a wonderful tour of Taormina, Castelmola, and some of the shore villages. Our cruise boat's itinerary changed the day we boarded, and Simon was very accomodating in changing dates and times of our tour. Daniel was great - waiting for us at the dock, stopping at ideal picture taking locations. We... More

We had the privilege of being driven to Taormina from Catania by Simone, a very charming, professional and kind man. He called us to confirm our arrival and waited for us at the Catania Port and from there made our way towards Taormina. Being very late and not having had dinner, Simone suggested to stop at a nearby cafe and... More

We loved Danilo! He is a superb tour guide and our excursions with him were the highlight of our trip. There were five of us traveling together (the youngest was 7 yo and the oldest was 64). Danilo made sure that there was something fun for all of us and accommodated all of our requests! Thank you!
