I booked two excursions with SAT at the very beginning of the 2014 season. The first one was to Agrigento and the second was to Panarea and Stromboli. I couldn't ask for a better service. The guides in both excursions were really nice and knowledgeable. Franco, our guide during the Panarea trip, was fantastic! Federico, the agency responsible in the... More

The Agrigento tour was a complete waste of money. The guide was hopeless and kept on talking in French even though we were the English speaking group. Be careful, the tours are expensive andwhen you get top the sites they hit you again for the entry price and head sets!! The guide on the bus loved the sound of his... More

Hello Kym D, we are sorry to read that you did not have a satisfactory experience with our company. On this tour two guides are provided, one is a tour leader on the bus who is in charge to give information on the destination of the trip and of course a general overview of Sicily, regarding history, art and costumes,...

Whilst we were in Taormina we did two excursions with SAT. Both were quite complicated. Panarea and Stromboli was coach to Milazzo; boat just for our group to Panarea and Stromboli with stops on both islands; simple meal on board before sailing around Stromboli to watch several volcanic explosions; sail back to Milazzo; coach back to Taormina. All very smooth... More

Well run trip with a very informative (tri-lingual) guide, but expensive. We did the cable car & jeep trip up Etna. The views were stunning, but, the weather can change very quickly, as in any mountainous area, & it is essential to have strong shoes & warm clothing. When we arrived at the top it was cold & very windy... More

We spent one week in Taormina. We did three trips from Taormina with SAT: Etna Round Alcantara, with Circumetnea train, Taormina Walking Tour and Agrigento and Piazza Armerina. We booked the tours via online and had discount 10%. Massimo Giannetto from the booking department was very helpful. If I emailed him, he replied promptly. The Mount Etna trip via Alcantara... More

Giovanna from SAT helped me choose this tour as a surprise or my partners birthday. Her communication with me was brilliant from the outset. She kept in touch by mail to confirm that the trip to the islands were still going ahead. She did say the weather was uncertain so if we were worried about the sea state we could... More

We took the full 90 euro Etna tour from Taormina, which included the drive up to Silvestri craters, 20 minute break there, and then the cable car and jeeps up the mountain for more craters. Afterwards you are taken down back to Silvestri craters and have about an hour of free time there. While overall I did enjoy the tour... More

Hello Alenchik, your review contains important advises and suggestions for other travellers and we thank you very much for having posted it. Although we have the feeling that you have rated the meteorological conditions which have the priority in this kind of a tour all in the nature. The excursion to Etna is obviously so much related and affected by... More

We made the full etna tour. All was as expected. Great staff and free time enough. Good advices for eating and more. Better doing the full experience ( funivia and jeep cars to higher craters cause you save money instead on doing by yourself). Special thanks to Massimo at Corso Umberto. He was very kind and helpfull with another issue... More

I loved this tour. We booked when we were in Taomina and the gentleman we booked with was very helpful. Once on the tour the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were given some time to explore some of the lower craters before heading up to 3000 ft. The guides that took us up were again friendly and full... More

We had trouble booking online so could not make the most of an advertised discount. It was an enquiry form and we received no reply. As we weren't completely sure which tour we wanted we waited till we arrived in Taormina to book. In the little shop on Corso Umberto the staff were friendly and we booked our trip with... More
