Tour Companies-Are there really differences? (3 Replies)
I thought I had settled on Going Sicily/Sicily ShoreTours for two day trips - one to Mt Etna with winery visit, and the second to Syracuse/Noto. They have gotten very good reviews on TA (mostly from the Italian site). But there seem to be similar tours offered by Continente Sicilia, Tours by Locals, and Sicily Tours & Taxi Taormina (where we will be based), and countless more. My head is spinning and I seem to be second guessing myself on this (as well as accommodations, etc). Vagabonda, I...More

There are many very good options in Taormina, also including Sicily Life, New Travel Services, Sicily Limousine Services, which you didn't mention, but it might depend on the destination and your intention. For example, if you you intend to trek Etna, really trek and not just visit, then consider Continente Sicilia or Legendary Sicily. Vagabonda

Which Tour Company for Etna Continente Sicilia or Thompsons (1 Reply)
I was looking to book the Etna Tour but I am not sure who to book it with. On tripadvisor there are a lot of recommendations for Continente Sicilia. The Etna Grand Tour is 95 Euros with them and the Thomson Holidays Etna tour (who we are gong on holiday with) is from £76 so more or less same price. Has anybody been on the Thomson Tour (was the tour very crowded) as I notice they have four pick up places on their tour form. Can anyone suggest a better tour company. Thank you.

Welcome to Sicily debbie123Liverpool! If interested in serious trekking and a more personalized tour, consider Continente Sicilia or Legendary Sicily, but the group tours like Thomson or SAT are also very good. Vagabonda
