From the moment Antonio picked us up at our Taormina apartment in the pouring rain, the entire experience was “perfetto”. Safely drove us in crazy conditions, great stories, local historic and geologic background, and he had amazing patience answering our many many questions. Antonio made sure we had the best experience at Vini Gambino, even requesting an orientation to their winemaking operations below the tasting room. We then had a delicious and culturally rich lunch at a rural Randazzo area Agriturismo. Lovely, quaint, gorgeous surroundings, great food and wine, and very fun to be on the sidelines of a big (big!) family graduation celebration. We would do this again in a heartbeat and highly recommend the experience. Thanks to Massimo for “saving a spot” and adding our daughter at the last minute. All communications were very smooth, professional & friendly.

This tour is definitvly to recommend. Antonio being a wonderful guide giving us background information about the local wine and its history. We met lovely people and had exquisite food and wine. Unfortunatly there was an erruption that day and we did not have any view due to the ash rain. Nevertheless it was a unique expierience. For the wine tasting its self we would have appreciated to be more guided with the combinations of the different wines with the food. We would have loved to have more time with Federike and her knowledge about wine. All in all we spent a wonderful day. Thank you.

What a magical experience! The food portions were generous and the wine kept flowing. The other participants were wonderful and everyone got along. Our guide was polished, though knew when to loosen his tie. Mt Etna exploded as we were driving up it and it began hailing volcanic ash. The drive there and back was comfortable. Will recommend anytime!

Best experience in Sicily! Rossario was an excellent guide with lots of knowledge about Sicily and history in general. We were served lots of delicious food and wine (way more than expected), and it was very interesting to learn about the wine making. Overall we were super happy with the experience and felt it should be double the price we paid!:)
