This ended up being a private excursion which was great. Taorimina was a cute little Italain town and fun to visit. Driver was very good - there were traffic issues on way back to Messina and he was in constant contact with other drivers and found us a better way back to town. Driver stopped in a few spots in Messina as well. Driver's spoke ok English.
