Chiara was great and told me everything about Messina even though I was the only one participating. She picked me up from the station which was very nice of her. Take the morning tour so you get to see the bell tower show at noon which is the highlight of the tour. The city is different from the older parts of Sicily because most has been destroyed by the earthquake and the war. The significant buildings have been rebuilt or restored. After the tour you can go and leave for another destination.

Booked a 2 hour walking tour for our day visit to Messina. Was met by Chiara from Messina Discovery Travel at the cruise terminal exit gates. She then took us on a tour of her city. Very knowledgeable, professional and personable tour and she managed to bring the history of Messina and it’s monuments to life. Totally enjoyed this experience and was finished with a stop at one of Messina’s oldest cafes. A nice touch. Highly recommend this guided tour and Chiara.

Our guide, Chiara, was very knowledgeable and energetic. The sites were interesting and the bell tower show at noon is not to be missed. There are steps to climb during the tour but otherwise it is easy walking. The cannoli at the end of the tour was delicious.

Dear Sir We are sorry for not being able to offer our tour and assist you. Due to technical and organisational issues, that day was critical for the entire team and for this reason we were unable to offer you the necessary support. We thank you for the review as it was useful to understand our mistakes and helped to improve our assistance system. Thank you for your understanding. Best regards

We had really a very good time with Chiara, our tour guide. Very practical and convenient the Whastapp message before the tour so we knew that everything was set and easy. It was a pretty hot August day in Messina, but Chiara managed to keep all of us - teenagers included - hooked on her stories about the sites, the story and the legends on Messina. 2 hours was the perfect timing for our group and Chiara managed to easily squeeze in lots of interesting stuff !

Had a fab walking tour of Messina with the lovely, funny and knowledgeable Charlotte, for our first visit to Messina. As it was my birthday she surprised me at the end with a delicious cake. Charlotte really did everything she could to make sure we had a good time. We was only in Messina for the day on a cruise. Would definitely recommend this morning tour for other visitors. Booking was easy and communication very good. 5*

The 2 hour Messina Walking Tour exceeded our expectations. Communication before doing the tour was excellent and everything went very smoothly finding the location of the tour. The entire staff of Discover Messina were extremely friendly and took time to talk with us personally. Carlotta, our guide, was magnificent. She was extremely informative, knowledgeable, and understood our walking needs. Her personality was very enjoyable, funny and made the tour exciting and interesting. (Carlotta, we are on the lookout for a husband for you!)

We had a great time wandering around Messina’s old town. Margarita was an excellent guide. The tour showed us various historical sites. Although the hike to the top of the town was challenging for us, the views from the church was perfect. We highly recommend this tour.

This was an outstanding historical walk through Messina which enabled us to see the beautiful cathedrals, the Astronomical Clock, the Piazza Unione Europea, etc. Our tour guide Tania spoke five languages and was completely knowledgeable about all the places we visited, giving us historical perspective at all times. She was very attentive to me when I fell behind the group when we climbed about 200 steps to reach one of the cathedrals.
