“Fantastic!”

Sicily Limousine Service Day Tours
Ranked #10 of 26 Tours in Giardini Naxos
Attraction details
Reviewed May 28, 2013

My family of six arranged a private day tour in Messina and Taormina and the surrounding area in Sicily when our cruise ship docked there for a day. It was the best thing that we could have done. From beginning to end, Sicily Limousine delivered wonderful service. When booking, they were prompt in answering our questions either by email or on the telephone. They allowed us to tailor our tour to suit our needs and wants. Communication is no problem if you don't speak Italian as everyone I spoke to, from the office to our driver, spoke excellent English. Fabio, our driver, was extraordinary. He was not only knowledgable but friendly, caring and completely charming. His love of his country and city (he is from Messina) was clearly evident and made our tour that much more enjoyable. I would not hesitate to recommend Sicily Limousine Service and will definitely use them again when the next opportunity arises.

Our ship, the Carnival Sunshine, docked in Messina and we were promptly met by our tour guide Claudio.
While the 6 of us sat in total comfort in his beautiful Mercedes van Claudio shared his knowledge and love of Sicily and particularly the areas near Messina.
Every part of the tour was wonderful, not rushed but kept on time. We had a nice wine tasting and snacks at the Bambino winery, a beautiful setting and good products.
Claudio was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. This tour ended up being one of the highlights of hour 12 day cruise. Claudio even took us by the famous church clock in Messina for a photo op at the end of the tour.

We took a half-day tour to Taormina and Castelmola from Messina when our ship docked there for the day. There were eight of us in an air-conditioned minivan. We stopped for two photo ops along the way, and for longer in both the towns. We returned to the ship about an hour and a half before we had to be back and, in reflecting, I would have preferred to have more time in Taormina. Castelmola offers breathtaking vistas, but not much else. Taormina is full of action and a really fun and beautiful place to be a tourist for a while. We really appreciated the responsive communication via email from Tiffany in the main office when arranging our tour and found the pricing to be competitive with the many other companies that offer similar services. Our driver was waiting for us as we exited the ship and was quite pleasant but did nothing to exceed our expectations; basically he drove. I don't even recall if he gave us his name. This does nothing to dissuade us from recommending the company as they did exactly what they promised; it just wasn't outstanding in any way.

This was a very special tour for our group (8) from the port Messina. Our 1st stop of the day was at Giardini Naxos at an unbelievable pastry shop. The creative choices of design & taste were the talk of our group. We even sampled each others item & all were delicious. Mt Etna was active in the background, plus Castelmola & Taormina were fantastic to see & shop. Tiffany was very responsive to ALL my Q's & recommended flexible tour options for our custom private tour. Fabio was an excellent guide.

Instead of taking the ship's excursion from Messina, Sicily to Taormina etc, we went with our own choice of Sicily Limousine Service. We found them amazingly easy to work with through quick email responses. Tiffany in particular was an amazing help. When we failed to do the necessary follow through she picked up the slack and made it all happen for us. The cost was far less than the ship's costs and we were not in a 'pack' following one person holding up an umbrella. Instead, our driver met us at the dock - no problem in finding the right person with an air conditioned mini-van (for 4 of us). We stopped for photo shoots along the way and had a great time all around. He had good recommendations and we had the time to explore for ourselves. It was easy, extremely enjoyable, great price and amazing service. We will definitely work with this company again and have no hesitation in recommending them. Thank you Tiffany & Sicily Limousine Service. You are fantastico!
