What to expect
Start with an 8:30am pickup from the Catania station, port, or your hotel, then travel to Giardini Naxos, the pretty seaside town just south of Taormina. Sicily’s first Greek colony, Giardini Naxos is rich in history as well as beauty and you’ll learn about its Greek roots as you travel along the seafront, looking out at Naxos Bay. Stop at Isola Bella, a wildlife reserve known as the “peal of the Ionian Sea,” and use your free time here for a dip in the water. Afterward, you’ll head onwards to Castelmola for a stroll through the town. Admire the ruins of its Norman city walls, and stroll around Piazza Duomo to see the Mother Church of Castelmola, a rebuilt cathedral dedicated to St. Nicholas of Bari. Later, you’ll visit Taormina to tread the pavements of Corso Umberto and discover its monuments. See the Messina and Catania gates, and check out the medieval Palazzo Corvaja, Teatro Antico, Badia Vecchia, and the Torre dell’Orologio, among other sights. Finally, you’ll have some time to browse Taormina’s shops at your leisure before your return to Catania.

The trip was amazing, nice views and interesting stories. Although we had a mixed group of English and German speaking people, our guide Enzo switched between languages fluently and nobody felt left out. Grazie mille, Enzo!

Our guide, Giuseppe, was very good with English and explained everything to us. The car was very comfortable and he gave us the history behind the town. We had a few free hours in Taormina which was fantastic! It's truly a beautiful place.

Ask for Erminia!! We LOVED our day with her!
Sep 2018 • Couples
Our port day in Mykonos was cancelled due to bad weather and we found out we were stopping in Catania. We scrambled to find an excursion and read about this one with Etna Tribe. WOW! Wish we could have spent more time in these beautiful towns!

First of all, Erminia is the best European driver I've ever been with. We were a group of 6 and ALL of us loved our tour. We squeezed a lot into our short time in port and Erminia was so personable and down to earth. I want to go back just to go to Mt Etna on a tour with Erminia. Next time, I WILL!

There's a reason this is the number one tour company in Catania. They know their stuff! I cannot begin to describe the beauty of
Giardini Naxos Castelmola, and Taormina, so I will post some photos. One of my favorite stops on our vacation.

Thank you, Erminia!!! Hope to see you next time.

Nice tour with great landscapes to see
Aug 2018 • Solo
The guys from my hotel helped to book this tour.
The driver and guide, Giuseppe, picked me up from my hotel around 9AM.
It was a fully booked tour (8 people).
We first went to Castelmola, which is a nice village on top of a rock that offers a nice view of the sea. The castle offers a nice view of Etna and you have time to enjoy it.
Then we went to Taormina for a free stroll (i had time to visit the amazing Greek Theater of Taormina) and Isola Bella where we had about an hour to take a dip in the water or just feel the rocky beach.
Last stop was Giardini-Naxos where we had short stop for taking photos of the beautiful gulf of Naxos.
It was a nice tour and the guide did not rushed us. Even if the tour was supposed to take 5 hours, we got back to Catania at around 4PM.

A good day trip option of Mount Etna, the surrounding villages and the charming medieval town of Taormina.
An organized tour will make things easier than arranging the logistics yourself. Mount Etna is a must. The villages
