“Excellent Drivers & Service”
Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

We made arrangements with Sicily Tour on June 23, 2012 to pick up us - 4 people - at Messina Port & drive us to Taormina & beautiful surroundings. The car was more than comfortable, the driver knowledgeable & spoke perfect English. It didn't hurt that the views were spectacular!!!

“When can I go back to Sicily???”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Sicily! We had an even better time because of our private driver, Carmelo! He was waiting for us (as promised) when we walked off the ship. He got us into the van and away from the crowds quickly. He was very knowledgable about the sights, culture of Sicily! When we return to Sicily, we will most definitely hire Carmelo again! Thanks, Carmelo for such an enjoyable visit!!

“Amazing Day from Port of Catania to Castelmola & Taormina with Carmelo!”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

We arranged through Celebrity Cruises for an all-day car with driver from the Port of Catania. We were 2 couples in Carmelo's immaculate & comfortable van.
The Cruise line did not guarantee an English-speaking driver, but we decided to forgo hiring the (additional charge) English-speaking guide. That was a great decision! Carmelo's English was very good, and he did a perfect job suggesting the order of our itinerary. We knew only that we wanted to visit both Castelmola and Taormina. Carmelo took that info and put together a most perfect day. His advice was spot on as to order of visits,where to make purchases, the local cuisine to sample and where to eat lunch. We also had spectacular views of Mount Etna, with (safe) white smoke pouring out of the top.
A bonus suggested at the end of our day was a tour of Catania. We saw amazing remains of a Roman Amphitheater, right in the middle of a main road! There was also an unbelievably beautiful square with a gorgeous church, fountains and a statue of an elephant. Carmelo even offered to take group photos, and they came out perfectly.
Carmelo was extremely helpful and is a very safe driver.

Many thanks to Carmelo of Sicily Tours for a SPECTACULAR day in Sicily; we highly recommend them!

“very nice trip!”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

One month ago we were in Sicily with our Mediterranean cruise. We've heard about the nice trip to the Etna and booked this trip with Sicily-Tours, which Homepage we've seen on the internet. It was fantastic... the view and favorable the very nice driver Carmelo. He knows all the beautiful places and was so courteous. My husband and I will come back next year to make another one of these nice journey's with Carmelo! Thank you and all the best to you!

“Easily, the best decision made on our vacation”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

My husband and I are currently still on our first European vacation but felt the desire to write this review now instead of waiting until we got home, as Carmello was so wonderful. Gotta spread the word! He was friendly, informative, funny, and made you feel comfortable at all times. We had a full day tour from Carmello on our 1 year wedding anniversary, and we could not have spent the day any better. We went to Mt. Etna, a local winery (Gambino Winery, EXCELLENT), and Taormina. You can design your own itinery with Carmello. He allowed us to do everything at our own pace, meaning stay the most time at the winery, haha. However, he always made us aware of the day's plans/rec. timing for activities, while having a smile on his face. We received an outstanding impression of Sicily, and when we return, we will undoubtedly book again with Sicily Tours. Thank you, Carmello.
K Grade: A+
This one was all Kelly, and I could not have been more impressed. Carmello was there to pick us up on time, had a nice, clean, Mercedes waiting for us. As Kelly mentioned, he was a fantastic tour guide with intimate knowledge of the island. He spoke fluent English, told great stories and kept us informed at all times. A+
