Our family trip to Taormina, Sicily was that of a very important and memorable one. We were there to spend time in beautiful Taormina as well as visit my father's roots of Baucina, Sicily. I was not sure how we were going to accomplish this seeing that Baucina is a very small town off the beaten path, tucked away in the countryside quite a distance from Taormina. I came upon Roberto Mirabile of Taxi Taormina & Sicily Tours who without a doubt was able to fullfill our hope and accomplish our goal. From the moment he met us at the airport we knew there was going to be a wonderful connection, Roberto felt like a "family" member right from the start! We spent many days with Roberto and toured Taormina, Palermo, and of course Baucina like no one could have showed us. Roberto's superburb knowledge of Sicily is one that could not be compared. He is like a walking history book full of wonderful and fascinating facts! We saw so many landmarks as well as "local" places that a tour group or guide book would not have been able to compare. Roberto took us to all the best tasting restaurants and cafes as well as experiencing some of the "local" favorite Sicilian treats - cannolis and arancini! Roberto's personality is one that fills you with open arms and warmth making you feel welcome. His punctuality was impeccable and always had a well stocked supply of water in his vehicle. There is no need to research and spend countless hours reading reviews for other tour companies - Roberto MIrabile is the one!!! We made such beautful memories with our family and we know Roberto will never forget our "donkey" encounter in Baucina! We shared many laughs together and also had the pleasure of having dinner with him and his beautiful wife. We look forward to when you and your wife visit the states so that we can give back the "royal treatment" you so gave to all of us! We miss you and hope to visit and see you soon...Hugs to you and your wife! Lisa, Theresa, Richard & Kayla
