A Recent Review of this tour

Paolo was fantastic. Lots more driving than I anticipated from the port is the only reason for 4 stars. Paolo took us for a coffee and a Sicilian morning delight that is there form of gelato. After we went to Mount Etna which was very crowded but very interesting. The Gambino winery he took us on the fringe of Mt Etna was beautiful with breath taking views and incredible food and wine. Thank you Paolo for a wonderful visit.
