Our guide, Marco, was excellent! He showed us everything in both cities. His knowledge of his country was incredible. Often he was able to get us off the usual tourist paths and back into areas of Taormina and Castelmola that only a native would know of. I would give this tour my highest recommendation.

This could not have been a better experience. The tour company did a really good job of providing us information before we arrived in port so we could easily find our driver, Carmelo. Carmelo gave us a lot of helpful information about Sicily, had local snacks (including fresh cherries from his own trees), and made us feel completely relaxed and welcome. After arriving in Taormina, we met our guide, Josey, and she gave us the most indepth and tailored tour of Taormina and Castelmola. This tour sets the bar for all excursions in the future and will be hard to beat. Highly recommend others to take this tour, and absolutely recommend paying the 10 euros to see the Greek Theater...the view and stories behind this relic are unbeatable.
