Taormina is a nice little town with a Roman amphitheater and plenty of tourist shops and cafes. Castlemole had a nice view, but not really much else up there to do."

* A traveler said: "We met our guide from our cruise ship, we avoided paying for overly priced soulless cruise tours. It was immediately clear our guide would be showing us around 'his' city with pride and passion. We casually walked through the local markets seeing Catania in the raw, living and breathing the hustle and bustle of the fish and vegetable markets. We learnt about the rich often violent history of the city through a locals eyes, sipping the shortest espresso EVER! and sampling local fruit and cake. We returned to our cruise after a fascinating insight of a beautiful city, would highly recommend"

* A traveler said: "My wife and I took A private tour on Sunday, May 2, 2019 to Siracusa, Ortigia, and Noto. Our driver, Giuseppe, was on time, drove safely, and had a great personality. His car was clean and comfortable. He shared a tremendous amount of very interesting knowledge about the sites we visited. He attended to all of our needs. We had great conversation about many topics during the drive. Part of our trip was in pouring rain and Giuseppe made sure he dropped us off right at the entrance. He even gave us his own umbrella to use on the tour to keep us dry! It rained on and off during the day, and he was very flexible in allowing us to wait until the rain stopped so that we could use our time to maximize seeing the sites. When we return to visit Sicily, we will request Giuseppe to take us on another tour! I highly recommend Giuseppe for any private tour of Sicily. He is kind and very knowledgeable about the island of Sicily."
