What people are saying about Ancient Theater of Taormina

Super interesting and fun tour and very friendly guide. We can definitely recommend the combination tour of Etna and Taormina! It was a highlight of our stay. Alessio is very friendly and entertaining. He reliably picked us up on time and told us many interesting things. The ride was very pleasant and Etna definitely impressive to see. You then explore Taormina on your own, but that's no problem. The small town is well laid out and exploring the many colourful alleys is fun and it's easy to find your way. Afterwards, we were picked up again on time. We had a great day, thanks again :)

We had a great day with our wonderful guide Alessio, who speaks very good English! He has a deep knowledge of the area (especially history, archeology and vegetation) and was also very fun and congenial. The trip is absolutly worth it because you can expierence two sicilian highlights in one day. The time in Taormina might be a little too short for some people, but it was enough to see the Threatre and main attractions. Thank you!

this was an incredible tour! Alessio was a well-informed, extremely polite, and made the trip exciting and also educational. I learned a lot about both Mt. Etna and the town of Taormina, while also seeing craters, cool caves, and beautiful views of Isola Bella and the town of Taormina. I HIGHLY recommend this tour and thank you Alessio for the wonderful day. It made my trip.

Pic up on time, clean bus, excelent stops, advice, break and visits!!!

Great excursion, super friendly guides, all in all highly recommended.
