Very relaxed and fun tour with gorgeous Antonio!He showed us not only the Film Savoca, but also a little church with mummified bodys, kapern and almonds plants, we talked about discoveries and developments in Europe, worldconnections etc. It has been very harmonic, educational , with fun and sun.

Great day spent
Oct 2019 • Solo
The trip was amazing, with many beautiful places visited. I also learnt many interesting facts about Sicily from Carlos, who was great. Maybe I would prefer having a bit more time in Taormina, everything else was exceptional.

In conclusion, it was a day to remember. The trip well deserved its money and exceeded my high expectations.

I want to congratulate Gloele, our Tour Guide. He spoke English fluently, was nice and a real gentleman. He gave detail explanation of all the sites we went during the day. Thumbs up for him and all the sites.

Best full day experience in Sicilia
Aug 2019
Amazing views, relaxing drive from Catania. Best trip of my time in Siciia. Luigi was professional and on-time, very safe driver. Luigi made the experience even more enjoyable with all of his knowledge of the cities. You have to see Taoromina and Castemola. Just breathtaking!

Wonderful and highly enjoyable day trip
May 2019 • Family
I booked this tour quite spontaneously and even though it was a Saturday, we were only 3 persons, which gave the tour additional personal touch and a nice "private tour" feeling.
I made the tour with my 5-year-old son.

Our guide Antonio and his apprentice took great care of us (for example having the umbrellas ready for us when it was raining) and also had a lot of patience with my son who was sometimes too eager to experience the tour on his own.

We started the tour in Savoca which is mainly famous for filming of the Godfather. But the town is generally picturesque located and offers much more than just the Godfather sites.

In Castelmola we were able to enjoy the wonderful panorama of Taormina and enjoy a finger food lunch with a glass of wine. We visited also a very special bar:)

In Taormina we were on our own but well prepared by our guide - we got a map and a description of the main sights including Teatro Antico. Taormina is a definitive "must see".

I highly recommend this tour with "Sicily Day by Day".

A Fantastic Tour
Feb 2019 • Couples
Tony Currenti was our driver and he was amazing. Since he was born and raised at the foot of Mt. Etna, his wealth of knowlege was priceless. His knowledge of the Sicilian history, geology, industry, and economy is incredible.

The tour itself took us to places we only dream about seeing. All three sights were breathtaking and the tour was paced in such a way as to be casual but packed and informative. A light lunch was provided and it was delicious in a breathtaking setting. It was probably the best tour my wife and I have ever been on. And the cool thing about it was the hotel pickup and drop-off.
