Chiara was knowledgeable and engaging. Her commentary on the history of Taormina was informative and sprinkled with humor. She shared with us many illuminating smartphone photographs of Mt. Etna taken when it was fiercely erupting. Chiara kept us on a good but not strenuous pace as we walked the streets of Taormina. And she made a great restaurant recommendation for lunch. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure...! :)

Chiara was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about Sicilian history in a way that was easily understood. She took us to an out-of-the way restaurant where we were able to sample delicious local specialities. She was able to quickly bypass the long line to the theater at Taormina and give us a behind-the-scenes tour. A great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bruce for sharing your impression about the tour... a big responsibility for me to get the appreciation of a group of teachers...! I spent a very good time in your company and I'm glad you enjoyed the tour. :) Chiara

Chiara knows Taormina and the area around Mount Etna extremely well, based on many years living in the area. We enjoyed our tour up Etna, to a local winery for delicious food and wine, and around Taormina very much and can highly recommend her as a guide.

Chiara is a very experienced guide who taught us a lot about her country. She has a warm, friendly personality, which added to our enjoyment of the time we spent with her. She and her driver were especially accommodating to my wife who is mostly wheelchair bound. If we visit Sicily again, we will want to take another tour with Chiara.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Frank: I try to do my best to be the guide I would wish to have myself when I travel and I'm glad I could transmit you at least a part of the love I feel for Sicily, which welcomed me over thirty years ago... :) Chiara

Chiara gave us a brilliant tour of Siracusa and Ortigia. Her knowledge of the culture and the sites greatly enriched our visit. Her English is excellent and we admired her determination to "give us our money's worth". She did. We recommend her without enthusiasm, and with the suspicion that she would be brilliant in her home area of Taormina.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice words...! I appreciate your commentary even more, considering that we couldn't access to some sites because of works in progress independently from my responsibility. I tried to offer you a valuable alternative and I'm glad you liked it. Best wishes and Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family. Chiara

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!!!

Claire was professional & extremely knowledgeable. We were a group of 8 that can be described as a herd of cats ... she herded us well! Claire knew how to avoid the crowds and beat the heat! This tour involves a good deal of driving, so an internet connection would have been a plus, but we are still finding this rare. The next time we use Tours by Locals, we will only book if there is an internet connection on a tour that puts us in a van for more than an hour. Todays tourist, sadly, is still working!

Chiara is an extremely knowledgeable guide. She has all and more of the information anyone would like to know. On her own once she found out that we were Jewish; she actively provided very interesting information about the plight of the Jews, the location of the "ghetto", and many buildings associated with the Jewish people. Her choice of a restaurant was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the places she took us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear guests, I'm am sorry if I gave you the impression I wasn't taking care enough of you but I couldn't tell about personal family troubles I had to attend concurrently on that day and that I couldn't procrastinate. I apologize if my job was not satisfacting. Anyway I sincerely tried to do my best in spite of all. Next time I will be more attentive not to let notice if I am concerned. Thank you for your opinion.

Our wonderful guide, Chiara, met us outside our ship and the incredible tour began! Chiara was knowledgeable on the culture, history and geology of the area and blended them together so beautifully we felt we really knew & experienced the true Sicily. The village, Castelmola, high above the coast was a treat, as was Taormina. Plus, with ease Chiara took us inside all historic places avoiding lines & crowds. We will remember always the restaurant where we enjoyed lunch & amazing views! Chiara is 5 STARS!!

Fantastic tour! We arrived in Catania, Sicily via cruise ship. Chiara and her driver were at the port to pick us up in a very roomy and comfortable touring van. The tour was a combination of places she had in mind and places we wanted to see. We also wanted time for shopping and lunch in Taormina. The day was perfect and Chiara gave us incredible history and color of the towns we went to with time to stop along the way for breathtaking vistas and pictures. I would highly recommend Chiara.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Christine, I always try to answer to the wishes of my clients, customizing every time a tour that can respond to different needs. So it occurs that in one tour I privilige deeper visit of cultural sites and another I give more time at leisure for shopping or lunch, anyway giving a mix of both with different combinations. I'm glad the whole group was satisfied even if there were different requests. Thank you for sharing here your positive impression of the done job. :)

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.

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...!

Tour: #36775, Catania Shore excursion, Catania, Sicily, Italy    view tour
Date: Mar 21/12

Chiara led my family of 6 (my parents & 3 sisters - we are all in our 20s) around Catania for a half day walking tour. We are diverse in our interests and can often overwhelm guides at times, but Chiara not only easily adapted to our different styles, she was funny and interesting and we all enjoyed spending the morning with her. Her knowledge is extensive but she knew when and how to divulge information and no one was bored or overwhelmed. We would all highly recommend Chiara!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nicole, I am really glad you enjoyed the tour! It was a pleasure for me to guide you and your family also because the more I noticed you were appreciating my explanation, the more I was feeling like to tell you much more...! Thank you so much.
