Chiara was a great guide with an informative perspective on Taormina that we would have missed without her assistance. We also were given some suggestions for additional places to visit in the town (i.e. casa caseni) that was not possible during the time period of our tour.

Chiara is a wonderful guide, she speaks good Spanish and is always ready to answer any question. We were four people and all of us were much more than pleased with her outstanding job. Congratulations and thank you Chiara

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Rancano, it was really a nice day with you and I enjoyed so much the nice mood and the company of your group. It was for me also a chance to improve my Spanish. Thank you so much for appreciating. :)

Chiara was very good and we would recommend her to other tourists. Her knowledge of Sicilian history was impressive. We were torn between giving her a 4 or a 5. We decided on a 4 as the tour was supposed to be on Taormina and we spent some time on Taormina but much of the time was on the history of Sicily. In general, we truly enjoyed the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure, indeed...!

Chiara couldn't have been more wonderful! She's charming, bright and extremely well spoken. The history lesson she gave us on Sicily and Taormina was not only fascinating but easy to follow and full of the rich culture of Sicily. The pace was great. There was no rush and photo ops were great. We had this tour during a tropical storm but with Chiara leading us we were hardly aware or the wind and the rain. She was that good. Highly recommend!! What a history lessor by a charming professor!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour. I hope to see you in Sicily again. Chiara

What an amazing and knowledgeable guide Chiara is! She was totally familiar with the history of Sicily and Europe! She was very relaxing to be with and was excellent in answering all of our questions. I would hardily recommend Chiara as a guide and will ask for her again if we return to Taormina!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a real pleasure to show you Taormina. I am glad you enjoyed the tour. Thank you a lot for your nice review. Chiara

Chiara is a very engaging talker and knowlegeable. I like the fact that she narrates the tour as if it were a bigger group--including using a microphone on the van ride. It was a heat wave, but she kept us as much as possible in the shade and we enjoyed the tour of Taormina. We had two kids, and she peppered her history with interesting bits for them, such as histories of volcano explosions and such. I highly recommend the tour and guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Family Roley, it was a pleasure to show in such a short time as much as possible of this beautiful island, also because you were so interested in what I was telling you, which is the highest satisfaction for a guide...! Thank you for sharing your experience with Toursbylocals...!
