What people are saying about Province of Messina

This tour does not take you to the top, but to some side craters. And you see old lava flows up close. The guide takes you off road through forests and moon-like landscapes. On the road to Etna, we drove through small villages and narrow streets. Where you will never go yourself. Learned a lot about the history of Sicily. For lunch, the wine tasting with snacks at Gambino is recommended. The day ended with a visit to the Alcantara gorge. Cool off in the cold water! (Water shoes recommended)

Saro was an excellent guide. His knowledge of the region and detailed description provided a really great experience. He spoke both English and Italian, and had a great sense of humor. Would definitely recommend this activity!

We had a wonderful day thanks to Alessio. He took very well care of us and the knowledge about Montalbano and history were immense. We gladly recommend this tour.

Guiden var rigtig god til at fortælle om Godfather - filmenes hovedpersoner, samt om stederne hvor filmene blev optaget

Neno made the trip easy and enjoyable with my family.
