We used Enrico initially for the taxi transfer having had him recommended by a work colleague. He mentioned his excursions when we were discussing what to do whilst we were there and decided to take him up on the offer.
What a day. Absolutely fantastic. It is just you and Enrico. No hoards or tourists, no fighting for space or rushing back to the bus before you are ready. Everything is done at your own pace. We left our apartment at 10am and didn't get back until 6:30pm!
Enrico is great. He has a great personality and is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour. We went to villages and areas off the normal tourist track to gain an intimate feel for real Sicily. The trip to and views from Etna was incredible; he even got the owner of the cafe to put on an English DVD for us whilst we were have our cappuccinos.
What can I say about the Gambino wine tasting? Wow. The setting is just stunning, the staff and owner are so helpful and the food and wine are superb. It is worth paying the extra for the full tasting, the sausages were the best I've ever tasted.
Enrico personally knows the owners of the places we visited, so it means you do get a special service and don't feel like a tourist on a bus trip. So much so that the vineyard owner even allowed me to use his office to print off some tickets.
I was a truly unforgettable experience and I would recommend the trip and also Enrico for taxi services too.
All in all, outstanding

“Not to be missed!”

Last week Enrico took us to Mount Etna and Gambino vineyard! It was truly a fantastic day out, mount etna is a very special place and the views from the top are fab. The wine tasting at Gambino's is excellent, I have been wine tasting in many different countries but this place tops the lot! Thanks Enrico for a very memorable day!

“Fantastico!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Enrico arranged a visit to Mount Etna and then on to the beautiful Gambino Winery. The trip to Etna was really interesting and made extra special by Enrico's company. He is so enthusiastic and has an infectious personality. Then on to Gambino Winery which is set in beautiful gardens overlooking the vines in the Etna Region. The winery was welcoming, informative and enthusiastic. The wines were exceptional and overall this was a top recommendation by Enrico! You made our day memorable in every way!! Thank you Enrico!
