Diego, thanks so much for taking our family touring the Island, you were very informative and we all enjoyed it immensely. We would recommend you to any travellers looking for a private insight to the local area. If I could make one small recommendation it would be to have a small microphone so the people at the rear of your vehicle could clearly here your interesting/informative commentary. Thanks again !! we loved it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cindy, Thanks for your great feedback. I appreciate your kind advice. Best, Diego

Thank you Diego for such an amazing tour. My daughters and I loved everything about this tour and your knowledge is outstanding. Thank you for recommending a place for lunch and also having us return back to the cruise ship ahead of time. We will return again to see more of Sicily soon. Definitely a highlight of our trip. Thank you Diego for making it memorable.

Diego, you were superb!! This young man organised a lunch for us at a gorgeous winery so we could celebrate my husbands 50th. Fantastic choice with wine, amazing scenery and gorgeous food. The visit to the volcano excited the teenagers and coffee in a local village pleased us immensely. Diego was knowledgable and chatty and very good company. A fabulous day thank you Diego!!

Excellent tour Taormina was great. Great views of Mt Etna from very top of town. Diego picked out great restaurant and food was very good. Didn't make Godfsther part of tour but it was our fault as we spent large amount of time eating then shopping in town. Would do it again

We were a family of 4 traveling on the Celebrity Equinox. We selected Diego's Tour of Taormina/Castelmola. He was awesome. He was at the pier waiting for us when our ship docked. He had a sign with our name on it. We got going right away.. He had water for all of us. His Van was clean and rode very well. We enjoyed our trip very much. He communicates extremely well with exact plans. He even texted me while we had free time to make sure we were doing okay. i would highly recommend..

Diego was the perfect guide for Messina and Taormina. A native of Siciliy he provided a rich historical and cultural background of Siciliy, adding some personal notes along the way that made the tour seem more all the more special. I highly recommend Diego -- he is a gentleman, thoughtful of our interests, and always courteous and kind. Sorry we didn't see your favorite bar, Diego! (But we certainly heard a lot about it later).

This was an excellent tour greatly enhanced by Diego, our tour guide. He was not only very knowledgeable about the sights but also about the history and local culture. We all felt very strongly that Diego's outgoing personality made this tour very special. if you are considering a trip to Taormina we would highly recommend hiring Diego as your guide. The lunch/wine tasting was fabulous and the winery/restauant staff extremely helpful and attentive.

This tour was the hi-light of an amazing week in Sicily. Diego collected us from the Hotel promptly. His insight to the history of Sicily & surrounding Isles was fascinating & spoken in clear English. We were taken to Etna & cave visit, then on to a honey producer; we were able to sample local honey. We were recommended a trip to a local winery, where we ate a wonderful lunch, this was in addition to the tour price but really worth every penny. Diego was an amazing guide & the tour wonderful.
