What a fantastic tour even if you are not a Godfather fan, the cities chosen by the tour are so beautiful, our guide was excellent and he took us to a delicious restaurant in Castelmola. We had 5* treatment all the way at such reasonable price...Don't miss it!

I found this company on TA and was not disappointed. We used them for a week and went all around the island. Sebastiano is very prompt replying to e mails and had good suggestions. It does pay to do your own research beforehand however. We were three couples in a minivan. Our driver was Vincenzo who spoke good English and was a pleasure. Note that the driver generally does not walk around with you but drops you off and waits. We changed some of the itinerary as we went along and it was not a problem. This was a no hassle trip which exceeded expectations.

After exploring various options for getting there, based on Trip Advisor reviews, we booked a Mt. Etna-Taormina tour with SicilyLife. Anna, at the SicilyLife office in Taormina, was informative, responsive and prompt in responding to our emails. Luca picked us up at 9:00 a.m. in a well-maintained Mercedes sedan at our Catania B&B, and was in all respects very professional. He was a delightful guide - engaging, personable, knowledgable, informative and accommodating, an excellent driver and had a very good command of English. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our nine-hour tour: our visit to Mt. Etna, the stop at a local honey-wine-oil producer's, the short detour to the seaside village of Giardini Naxos, and our visit to Taormina, where Lucas recommended a very good local restaurant (La Griglia). Luca and SicilyLife were also very accommodating in taking us to the bus station at the end of our tour. I will definitely recommend SicilyLife and Luca to others.

Booked three weeks before our cruise, three couples decided on the Mt. Etna and Taormina tour. Half as expensive as the cruise tour, we kept meeting them at our destinations. Our driver,Carmelo, was waiting for us when we left the ship. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We were also blessed with great weather on Etna where there was no wind. Just remember you can climb only around the Silvestri crater, not to the top. If you want to get there, you need the cable car( very expensive) and time. Next we went to Taormina where we had a nice lunch.and wandered the streets. Carmelo then picked us back up and we had a scenic ride back to the ship.
P.S. if you get dizzy from winding turns then the trip to Etna is not for you. All in all, we highly recommend this service.

We booked a tour with Sicily Life in October 2012, and we had the most wonderful experience.

The company was very prompt at replying to my emails and assured me that this was our tour and we can design it the way we want it.

We booked the Mt. Etna Experience and Highlights of Taormina, and we had Vincent as our driver/guide. Vincent was very professional and knowledgable about Sicily. He enjoyed answering all our questions about the region and its rich history. We were able to see Mt. Etna, visit a local farm and sample honey and olive oil, lunch @ a local winery, and visit Taormina. All these, we were able to accomplish in just 7 hours. Vincent was very good at making sure we were able to visit all the sights/activities we wanted to see/do given the tight schedule that we had.

I would definitely book with Sicily Life again if and when I get a chance to visit Sicily in the future and HIGHLY recommend them.

Thanks for the experience!
