Chiara R provide us with the best, most interesting, detailed tour! We loved learning the history of Taormina & Castelmola along with the general overall history of Sicily . She present the material in an interesting and vivid manor. She also took care of us in other ways...such as providing an umbrella for the rain, having us taste some local favorite foods, and providing a car and driver(taxi). She did not rush us and answered all our questions. Book with Chiara R for the best tour in Sicily!!!
