“A spectacular day with Roberto!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2011

We prearranged a tour with Roberto to be picked up at the dock in Catania. He met us in his very comfortable minivan and we were off on the most spectacular day of our vacation. After a short stop in the center of Catania we drove past Mount Etna to the town of Taormina. Roberto stopped frequently to provide us with photo opportunities along the coast and from many elevated viewpoints. The Greek amphitheater, the city square, and Castle Mola each had their own unique charms. Roberto gave us ample time to explore at each stop and gave us insightful information along the way. Roberto had set up a stop for lunch at Bar San Georgio atop the hill at Castle Mola. The food and wine and the views were the highlights of our time in Sicily. Most importantly, Roberto's courtesy and knowledge gave us a day that we will not forget.

“The best service you could ever ask ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2011

Since the first email Roberto was kind and gentle, and answer all my questions. Of course I was concerning about to choose this kind of service through Internet , but after all reviews , I decided to trust. Best choice ever !!! We were in a party of 6 , so we needed a big car, and we only have onde day to visit the beautiful Sicily, so I've asked him to make a better way to visit the mostly important places. And so he did. Amazing service, he stopped for an "expresso " in a very beautiful place for pictures, and gently offered us some local "biscotti" as a complimentary, not to mention cold bottled water ( in a 35 degrees Celsius , what a bless ), and wiped tissues. Then we've asked for lunch a local place , and Roberto promptly called a friend , and we had one wonderful lunch, full of sicilian plates, limoncello and nice memories. If you are looking for the best, that's Roberto !!! Don't hesitate.

“Excellent service through Roberto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2011

From the first phone / email contacts with Roberto everything went smoothly including confirmations of our requirements at each stage. We were collected from Catania airport by a smart, friendly, good English speaking driver who was very informative from the start of our journey until arrival at hotel in Taormina.
During our stay we booked an Etna trip through Roberto and another different driver collected us on time and provided a very enjoyable, relaxed and informative 5 hour tour including shopping, wine, olive oils and honey tasting stops.
At the end of our stay Roberto himself collected us from our hotel again on time and provided a comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable journey back to the airport.
We would definitely only choose Roberto's services in the future and highly recommend him for safe, friendly and well informed tours and transfers.

“Fantastic Tour of Taormina by Roberto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2011

A group of us (4) were provided a tour of Taormina by Roberto on 30 May. We arrived via cruiseship and Roberto was waiting for us and whisked us away to Taormina (as we only had 5 hours in port). Roberto was a very charming man and his knowledge of the area was impressive. He catered our tour to see the most impressive parts of Messina and Taormina in the limited time that we had available. Roberto even got us back to port in time to see the clock in Messina - great driving!!!
Roberto is trustworthy and I will definitely recommend him to everyone interested in Messina/Taormina.
