A Recent Review of this tour

Chiara was a total delight. We are a group that travels to Europe together every year and we book private tours on each trip. Chiara was one of the best guides we've ever had. She was knowledgeable, personable and adjusted to the groups casual style quickly. We enjoyed both her knowledge of Sicily, Etna and Taromina as well as he sharing her personal experience of living in Sicily. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an intimate authentic experience.
