“A Wonderful Day With Lucas”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We had originally booked another tour company for our day in Sicily but due to some poor reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to go with Sicily Life and are we happy we did. My husband is a big fan of the movies so we booked the Godfather tour. Lucas met us at the pier in Catania and took us on a short tour of the Square and then to the local fish market which was an experience in it self. Then we were off to Savoca and Forza D'Agro where scenes from the Godfather were filmed. By chance we ran into a woman that Lucas introduced us to who had a part in the first film (Appolonia's mother). My husband had his picture taken with her and this made his day. We then visited Castelmola where Lucas recommended a wonderful restaurant for lunch with views of Mt. Etna and the sea. Then we were off to Taormina where our Australian and Canadian friends got to eat a cannoli for the first time. Sicily Life is a great company and Lucas is as charming as he is knowledgeable. Don't hesitate to book them.

“Excellent company”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We used Sicily Life for both our airport transfers and for their 'Classic Etna' half day tour. They were recommended by our hotel and we were not disappointed. Our guide for the trip to Etna, Alessandro, was superb - informative and enthusiastic, adapting the tour to suit us perfectly. Sebastiano and Domenico were also brilliant, making our journey to and from Taormina really interesting with some local information, a bit of history and a quick Italian lesson too! Highly recommended.

“Great day”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I booked Sicily Life's Etna and Taormina tour after reading about the company on a cruise forum - and TripAdvisor and agree with everybody's high score.

Our driver was waiting for us when we got off the ship, and one of the first things he did was to check what time we wanted to be back on the ship so he could manage our day properly. It was so nice to have a friendly and knowledgeable driver for the day. The price was obviously a bit more than the tours organised by the ship but not massively so and it was so nice to see the sights in Sicily at our pace - and not at the pace of 50 other people on a coach.

It was a very good day and I would definitely recommend Sicily Life.

“A company that takes care of you!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We used Sicily Life for our transportation in Sicily...Palermo to Taormina. Prompt, courteous and a feeling of safety and confidence. We were also lucky to have two tours with them...one to Mt Etna with an extremely informative guide, Corrado, and a sort of "director" Cesare who was able to provide information on sites to see, restaurants to go to and in general someone who knows his Island. If you are ever stranded in some city or port in Sicily, call Sicily Life. They are extremely comprehensive and helpful in making your trip memorable. Lastly, Sebastian who is the Director at Arms. A true find in a very mystical island.

“Great tour group”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We took the godfather tour even though we were not big fans of the movie. We wanted to see small villages in Sicily and our tour guide exceeded our expectations. He was polite, informative and gave us a real feel for life in Sicily.
