Salvo drove us between Taormina and Ortigia and to the airport in Catania. He was always very prompt and professional. Very personable and has interesting things to tell you about the area. Definitely recommend.

We found Salvo's contact detail by chance and fortunately he was free in the evening. We journeyed from Catania to Taormina. Salvo was very informative and also totally punctual. These made our short excursion efficient. Thanks a million Salvo. It's a pleasure meeting you.
