The day was well organised with the bus picking us up promptly at Giardini Naxos at 7.30. Make sure you are early the bus does not wait for long! Following more pick ups from Taormina etc we were on our way and to our surprise stopped at a service station for 20 mins (I’m assuming as the driver needed to stop due to time on the road - as otherwise a very odd place to stop) in hindsight we would have however bought snacks as there was a lot of time between breakfast and lunch, especially for anyone like us who did not really have time for breakfast with the early pick up point. However they are the downsides the trip was totally worth it! Spectacular sites of the Greek theatre and the paradise caves were brilliant. And Ortigia was beautiful with amazing buildings to go view. Overall a great trip with our guide, Eva being very knowledgable, interesting and funny!
This was a fantastic experience. The boat is lovely- totally spotless and comfortable. The husband and wife team who owns it are an incredible team. They love what they do and their warm and gracious hospitality makes you feel as if you were spending an afternoon with friends. It was such an enjoyable way to experience the beauty of Taormina from a different perspective. Book this tour- you won’t be sorry!!
One of the best tours we have ever experienced. Almost a private tour with only 6 guests! Beautiful boat which was sparkling clean. We toured the Sicilian coast from the port and back and swam in the sea. Then the piece de resistance- Prosecco and appies . The hosts were so kind, attentive and knowledgeable. Don’t miss this chance to experience heaven on the sea.
This was the most fantastic experience. 2 hours was perfect. The hosts own and operate the boat which is very modern and comfortable. Graciella was wonderful in making all 6 guests feel welcome and her husband ( sorry I have forgotten his name ) was a masterful boat driver. Entered a blue grotto cave with no issues.
Perfect visit around Taormina with the kindest team on board. The capitaine and his wife Graziella made it so special. Very sweet and patient with our two boys, perfect aperitivo served right after a dip in the crystal water. Thank you
