This tour was very good for the price! Our guide was a local and very informative. We learned a lot about the local culture and had three separate tastings of local foods.

I had used this company a year ago and when we found ourselves coming back to Messina in 2019 they were naturally my first choice. I asked if we could do something different this year and perhaps do their boat tour up the coast. Katia and her team did not disappoint. The tour she put together for us exceeded all of our expectations. The boat operator she choose was excellent. She kept the tour at a pace that all small group felt comfortable with. Highly recommend them

It had been cancelled a few days before I left for Sicily.
So I can't really rate this tour. But I would have loved visiting Messina with a guide.

Chiara was our guide & Antonio our driver. The vehicle that picked us up was very clean Antonio a very competent driver & very pleasant. Chiara is an amazing lady, her knowledge of Messina is vast we saw so much & learned many interesting facts. We were so impressed we booked a second tour with them. On the day of our tour there was a street food festival in Messina Chiara accompanied us to the festival & walked around with us explaining how the festival worked, this was a surprise extra
