Mt Etna and Taormina Tour: review

Our guide Giaccomo led us to a beautiful Mercedez small bus/van that was perfect for our group and off we went. As we drove to Taormina, in perfect English he did a marvelous job of explaining the history of the area, its culture, and the sites we were passing. As one of our group had a bad hip he drove us into the center of Taormina and showed us where he would meet us after he parked the vehicle. He then provided a wonderful tour of the city and later took us up to another city that was above it. I have forgotten the name but it was lovely and provided a spectacular view of the area. The size of our van and Giaccomo’s skill as a driver allowed this trip – the buses from the cruise ship were too large to go up the narrow road. After our visit, we proceeded to Mt. Etna where we ate a late lunch and then walked around one of the smaller vents from the volcano. The walk to the largest vent was a little more than we could handle. It was fascinating and Giacomo did a fabulous job of explaining the landscape and history of the area. A pleasant drive back and our visit came to an end. Overall it was wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone for quality, service, and price. Steve Clark
