Friends
With so many tours on offer, we really wanted to find one that was value for money, so we went to the Tourist Information office in Taormina and had a chat with the people there. They asked us what we were after, what days we had available, and we settle on this tour.

We arrived at the bus depot (just before 8am), took our seats on the bus and off, collecting other passengers along the way.

Our tour guide was tri-lingual (Italian, English and German - I later heard him speaking French as well!) was VERY INFORMATIVE and happy to answer questions as we travelled along.

First stop was the Alcantara Gorges - WOW!! Be prepared for the COLD, but invigorating water, then wander through the national park.

Next stop: "RANDAZZO", to see the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta - built from Lava bricks!!

A walk through the local markets (not the best markets), however, a visit to the Deli was FANTASTIC! sampling delicious cold cuts of meat, dips, and cheeses!
Living in Australia we're limited with what we can bring back - so I bought some delicious pistachio biscuits :-)

Following this stop, we went off to Etna! WOW! What a fabulous experience! Having been up to Vesuvius, I chose not to go to the top of Etna (optional extra) however, my friend did go, and she wasn't disappointed.

She said the guide for that part of the tour was extremely informative and helpful in answering questions.

I stayed in the little village - gift shopping and walking around the destruction caused by the volcano - including seeing the mostly-covered hotel!

I must say, our tour-guide on the bus was incredible in explaining so much about not only what happened in the area as a result of the eruption, but also his personal experience!

I'd HIGHLY recommend this SAT for a day out - you won't be disappointed!

Beautiful place- but too much for a day trip
There was an accident on route and we were delayed by an hour or more. Consequently, we did not arrive at Syracuse
