      Poor tour.
      We were the first to be collected and yet the driver was still late, she then had to drive around the block as my partner had gone to powder her nose. The brochure said 8.5 hours poor time management meant we only had two hours to visit Taormina a town that you really needed longer to see it. We managed to see the main attraction just, before we had to make a dash back across the whole of the town so as not to be late. The tour should take out the visit to the winery and use that extra time to be used in the town. At the price i felt it was poor value for money, as we didn't get enough time to see everything, if i was going again i would take the train.

      Alcantara Trip
      We went to Mt Etna and it was nice. Constance had alot to talk about on the way to the mountain. She showed us around some old flows, old cones and a cave. Then we went to Alcantara with Giuseppe. He was easy to talk with on the ride to the river. He left us for a couple hours to go play on the water. It was a small, scenic gorge. Bring a waterproof bag, because if you wanna go further up the river the water is deeper than your pockets and you need to use your hands for balance.

      Next time with another agency
      Poor vehicle safety: The passenger seats in the font were not firmly bolted in place. The backrest for accessing the rear rows of seats could not be fixed. There were exhaust fumes inside the vehicle, there was no air conditioning, which is why the windows were permanently open. We had booked a trip with a German-speaking tour guide. As no German-speaking tour guide was available, we were promised a compensation of €30, which we don‘t received. The guide was very friendly and competent.

      Mount Etna - morning tour - watching it making RINGS
      This was one of the best experiences of my life: The morning tour to mount Etna. We started spot on time - very pleasant for a German tourist - and were driven safely up the mountain, by our super driver/guide, Costanza. On the way she told us a lot about the geological, historical and volcanological (?) background of the area and about Mt Etna. Costanza was easy-going, fun to be with, knowledgable and able to make everyone feel welcome. Several tour options were on offer - visiting the summit, go for a walk, etc. When we reached 2000m she recommended going up to 2950m, with the cable car, due to the great weather/sight. She stayed with us at all times making sure we didn't get lost. On that day Mount Etna made astonishing, beautiful rings and Costanza called out to us, on the bus, to come outside, to have a look. It was a super great day - ending with a wine-tasting at an organic vinyard (DO IT - if you can!!!), and a safe, amiable drive home. I highly recommend this trip: great value and wonderful experience. I travelled alone, aged 52, single, but I would love to return with my 12-year-old son :)

      Three perfect tours with Lemontour.
      First of all, I booked directly with Lemontour. I booked Etna Wine Tour + two more tours + transfers. Everything was perfect: drivers, guides and all the rest. Thank you for all Lemontour!

      Poor organisation by Lemontour
      The guide had not shown up at the hotel lobby. I asked the hotel receptionist to call. She explained I had tickets thru Tripadvisor but was told they did not had my booking on record though I had Tripadvisor voucher and my credit card showed payment. Finally after a lot of Italian, the receptionist told me to rush to a nearby spot where the guide would wait for me. Fortunately the guide was there and the poor man had to deal with my gruffness. The tour was fantastic and views magical. Just wish Lemontour had their act together.

      Great tour.
      Sandra was an excellent guide for our trip to Taormina and Castelmura. There were only two of us on the tour, so we were in her own car. I had toured Taormina from a cruise a few years ago, but had no idea from that tour how much I missed and how much there was to see. The area is spectacular and we learned a lot from Sandra. Highly recommended.

      Brilliant Experience & Host
      Brilliant day out and the guide was so informative. Plenty of time to look around and was taken to a beautiful restaurant. Very personal tour as there was only us and another couple. Plenty of photo opportunities. Thanks would recommend.

      Janet was a great guide - she was reliable, picked us up on time and hiked with us on Etna at around 2000 m and explained a lot to us - we had a great time and want to thank her for this experience!!

      Il Commissiario Montalbano tour, originally booked with get tour guide end of June. Cancelled evening before we flew end of august. A text notice cancelled saying late booking. I have a confirmation from end of june. Booked alternative with trip advisor- this time got a cancellation on the day before the trip. We were in catania having an evening meal looking forward to the trip the next day. No explanation this time, just marked cancelled- happened to see it when I went to my booking to understand the pick up details. . But clearly same company. Same phone number. We went with a private local guide at catania- had a wonderful time.

      Nice Tour with Information about the vulcano
      Nice Tour to see the vulcano and get to know a lot about his emergence. Janet is very friendly, has an answer to every question about the vulcano and its a lot of fun with her! We absolutely would recommend this Tour:)

      Amazing experience!
      I had an amazing time with Janet walking around the Etna and learning more about its history. The communication prior to the trip was very efficient and the pick-up was easy to organise. During the trip Janet provided a lot of information but about Etna, volcanoes in general and the geology around Sicily. This was an amazing experience as Janet brought a lot of energy and good mood with her music and kind words. I highly recommend this tour!

      Entertaining trip to Etna
      Janet was our guide for the day. As a geologist, her passion about Volcanic mountains and especially Mt.Etna( which she calls her home) was very evident. She made the trip very interesting with facts and also Italian songs. I would recommend this trip to others who are visiting Etna for easy, fun experience.

      A special something
      Had the best time on this tour. Janet is so fun. Trekking up the mountain she wore a speaker around her neck and danced the way up, we all had a great time going up the mountain, taking a quick look around at others on their tour, we definitely were having a better time and it's all down to Janet's magnetic personality and ability to make everything fun. I enjoyed the tour but I'm sure any tour that Janet gives will be super fun and I will definitely be going on another excusion with her the next time I'm in Catania!

    We booked the day tour to just Siracusa for €55 each via lemontour website and paid with PayPal. Worryingly I had no confirmation of my booking from lemontour despite them receiving immediate payment from me and no response to an email I sent them to their direct email address requesting confirmation. After having paid out €110 in total and growing more concerned our money had been lost, we decided to visit the lemontour office to find out what was going on and were informed by a member of staff that the tour we had booked AND PAID FOR was in fact NOT going to be happening after all!!! No reason was given, no apology, no offer of a refund! Why were we allowed to book and pay for a tour that was unavailable? Why were there NO warnings that safe town tours may not take place?! The weather by the way was 28c and full sun the day we chose. The only suggestion the staff offered was that we took a different tour for the following day for an ADDITIONAL €30 per person! Having no confidence at all about receiving a refund I was never offered, I felt like it was our only option to take the other tour and fork out even more money. The staff member requested we give her the money up front but we managed to give only a deposit instead on condition of having a receipt for it. We left the office feeling very uneasy about the authenticity of the company and whether the guide would actually even turn up for the tour!

    The tour itself was only mediocre and certainly not worth the €85 each. Our guide was not permitted by their lemontour employers to accompany us into some of the sites (which we begrudgingly had to pay an additional entry fee for) despite us having paid for a GUIDED TOUR which was quite a disappointment. The lunch included in the price was basic; we were required to choose from only the cheaper options on the cafe menu.

    We were very underwhelmed by the experience and hugely disappointed in lemontour’s total lack of professionalism. Go spend your money elsewhere and save yourselves from this company! I feel we were duped!

    It happens a few time that a tour is modified or cancelled for weather or logistic reasons. The tour booked by you had as a destination Siracusa and you took part on a full day tour including also the visit to Noto. We offered you the possibility to join it or having a refund and you decided to take part of the tour by paying the difference. Thank you for your opinion anyway. Lemontour Staff

    *Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.
