      THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!
      I will write a detailed review but if you want a shortened version, this was the most amazing evening that Catania has to offer. The experience is wonderful. We were lucky enough that no other guests had booked so we had a private excursion, however more people would’ve been great! You’re greeted by the amazing Bruno who is so welcoming and hospitable. He shows you around the boat, in the cabin and even gives you a little bedroom area where you can change. There is a toilet aswell which is convenient. You spend around half the trip heading north from Catania taking in amazing views of Etna and the Cyclops Islands. As it was just us two and Bruno, we sat drinking wine and eating cheese, bread and meats, sharing anecdotes and fun stories. You get a chance to jump into the sea which is great and really refreshing especially in the summer heat. Bruno also has snorkelling equipment if you want to do that. We were lucky that on the way back Bruno turned off the engines and we just sailed back towards Catania. So peaceful and the sunset is amazing (see the picture). If you get to do this amazing trip whether you are by yourself or with others talk to Bruno as he absolutely made our experience, and it would not have been the same without him. 10/10 must do!! From James and Hannah!!

      Sunset Sale
      Lost for words. Adored the tour, which was made even better by a lovely captain on his stunning sale boat. Enjoyed some drinks, some snorkelling, sharing stories and fresh foods for snacks. Can’t recommend enough!

      A trip to remember
      Bruno was not only punctual but such a wonderful guide! My grandparents previously lived on a sailboat so this trip was a real treat. Everything about this experience was wonderful from the views to the food/ drink to the conversation. Bruno has very good English and I highly recommend this trip. 10/10 experience.

      Amazing cooking experience
      We had a great time at Nonna Amalia's home cooking experience. The cooking class was hosted by Valeria at her gorgeous home and the kitchen was fully equipped. We choose to cook homemade pasta (tagliatelle) with tomato sauce and ravioli filled with pureed eggplant. It all turned out being great! For the dessert we made paste di mandorla! Everything was delicious and we really enjoyed the experience. I can really recommend this cooking class if you are looking to learn some Sicilian home cooking.

      Sailing Trip
      We booked this trip on line & were advised it could not go ahead on our chosen day but we were contacted directly by the company & offered another day which suited us fine. We meet the skipper, Bruno, & his amazing 10 year old daughter. She negotiated us out of the harbour & then assisted her Papa getting the sails up.....an inspirational sea woman at such a young age! We sailed from the Port at Catania towards Acitrezza where we swam in front of the caves. The sea was warm & it was beautiful. We stopped for lunch further down the coast & Bruno’s daughter made our delicious pasta lunch all by herself (10 years old!!!!). We went for Granite in the town which was amazing & then sailed back. It was a brilliant day - the company was able to accommodate our dates & we were lucky to be the only guests aboard. Bruno is a fantastic host, a brilliant skipper & he was able to impart his great knowledge of the sea, sailing, & all things Sicilian perfectly.

      Sailboat from Catania
      We were 2 couples on a sailboat tour from Catania. We arrived via cruise ship and Fabrizio contacted me before the cruise and assured me that they would wait for our ship to arrive in port. We met him as planned and he shuttled us to the sailboat via his car. It was so nice! Great communication and the sailboat tour itself was very nice. The meal onboard was delicious. A beautiful day which had us arrive back to our ship in plenty of time AND just before the weather turned to rain and lightening! Thank you so much!

      Great Customer Service
      We did not end up scheduling with Fabrizio. But I’m leaving this review because his communication was GREAT! Also his willingness to help me with what I was looking for is above and beyond. Thank you so much! Lucina

      Amazing sailing tour
      It was an amazing day in Catania. We had a lot of fun. Bruno is really nice. He brought us where we wanted. We had drinks and food on board. It was our best day in Catania and an original way to discover Catania by the sea. Thank you so much.

      Quiet and Relaxing
      After calling several companies, I texted this one and was lucky to get my last-minute reservation accepted. There were 3 guests and 2 crew members on the boat, so it felt really private. Bruno made our trip as comfortable as possible, providing us with choices on what we prefer to do, where to stop to swim, where to sail, whether to listen to music or to the sounds of nature. I felt very safe and comfortable, with much space on the boat, private cabin for changing, even a shower to wash off the salty water after swim. We ate delicious pasta with fish, breaded eggplants, paprika, zucchini, fish rolls, fresh cherry tomatoes; fruits and granitas - a traditional Sicilian dessert. We saw Etna from the sea, Aci Castello and Aci Trezza. The crew were attentive and friendly, engaging in interesting conversations. I came alone but didn't feel lonely.

      Cyclops Tour around Catania
      We had a fabulous day sailing around Catania with our Skipper Maurizio. Even though the wind was not great our skipper tried everything to make it a memorable experience. Interesting talks, great food, great company what more can you ask for. We highly recommend booking a sailing trip with them!

    My husband and I traveled to Catania with friends of ours and knew we had to spend some time on the water. After looking online we could My Personal Tour sailing and I am so glad we did! Bruno was an amazing captain and host. He picked us up promptly from our Airbnb and was very friendly. The boat was spacious and in pristine condition. To top off the beautiful scenery and relaxing vibes of being on the water Bruno provided a delicious lunch! We all loved the swordfish rolls. None of us have had them before and it was an awesome new food find! Bruno was very accommodating to what we wanted to do whether it was stopping to swim or just sailing. The day was so amazing and memorable that my husband and I booked to go back out with Bruno the next day! Our friends were flying home so we decided to enjoy another relaxing day on the water. Bruno took as along the coast where we got to see exciting landmarks from the sea. He also provided a delicious lunch again! I would recommend this tour to anyone as it will become the most memorable part of the trip!

    Me and my girlfriend took the sailing trip past aci Costello and found it a great experience. We also ate food on the boat once we took a stop off to swim in the sea and it was really good to try some Sicilian foods and fruit. The skipper we had on our sail was called bruno and we couldn't have been happier with him. He was extremely friendly, polite and consensus. He also had a lot of knowledge along the journey which was really interesting to learn. Couldn't recommend more and would also suggest asking if you could have bruno as your skipper for the sail.

    We had an amazing day thanks to Bruno's hospitality. He really cares about his clients; he went out of his way to help us book different tours for our last days in Catania.

    I'm vegan and he cooked a special meal just for me. My friends who aren't vegan also enjoyed his cooking. Honestly, it was the best food we had in our trip.

    What changes from other tours to this one is Bruno. He's travelled all over the world, which is why he knows how to approach different people in different ways.

    The sailing trip didn't disappoint. He knows the story of the place, which made everything more interesting. The see was beautiful and if you're lucky enough you might get the chance to see some dolphins in action!

    We would highly recommend this tour, even if you can't swim or don't want to sail a boat.
    This is an experience that everyone should do!

    Bruno's command of English was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the several areas of the coast we visited, including the sights of Etna in the background. We had opportunities to swim, snorkel, fish or even sail the boat.
    He then prepared a fantastic mouth watering Sicilian meal with was accompanied with several choices of drink (wine,beer, juice, coffee or water etc). I wouldn't have expected this quality in a first class restaurant, and there was no shortage of food or drink.
    Bruno went out of his way to show us everything he could and even took us back to our hotel after an exhausting day on the water.
    We have been on many excursions in many countries and we have to say that Bruno had made this the best we have ever done.
    We had the time of our life!
    Thanks Bruno

    Beautiful day of sea and sun. The coast of Catania is beautiful and with the sailboat, listening only to the noise of the waves, we saw places that can only be seen with the boat. Highly recommended tour.
