Although we are avid nature lovers and mountain hikers, before we came on this organized tour of Sicily we really knew nothing about nature in Sicily except for Mount Etna. We were shocked to discover that Sicily is a virtual nature paradise. Our tour guide took us on a 2 hour sea cruise along the shore of the Garden-of-Eden resort... More

So I'm very late writing this review, I thought I did it 5 months ago when I took this excursion! Ops sorry.. well, I am making sure to give great credit where it's deserved. My 2 friends and I called/ emailed for an appointment with only 1-2 days notice. The owners were so friendly and said they would take us,... More

A new experience for me to embark on a boat trip along the coast. I was impressed by the captain (?), his knowledge, cheerfulness (at the end of the season) and expertise handling the boat. I felt in safe hands and the water was so clear it was amazing. We went to the blue grotto and on to Isola Bella... More

We were in Taormina many times and each time we visit this magnificent beach we meet the most beautiful boat of Mazzarò. "Sebastian's boat" is the most beautiful boat in all of Sicily, full of colours and charm. I suggest you take a trip with the boat with Mr. Davide Valentino , he's a professional that deals with treating customers... More

The boat trip with Carmelo was a highlight of my visit to Sicily. Was a delightful way to see some lovely areas, including caves and a chance for a quick dip in some of the most beautiful waters. Carmelo was informative and enthusiastic, very hospitable offering some wonderful refreshment and fruit on our little boat ride.

On a hot day with choppy seas what better than a boat trip. We spent a great hour travelling along the coast. The caves were great and our captain superb. We even got a chance to steer the boat and that way we got the blame when we got soaked with spray. Fantastico

We sailed through the grottoes with Carnelo. Our hotel set up a private one hour tour for myself and my son and that was just right. The boat was in good condition. He was very accommodating--from the moment we walked on to the boat, helping us charging our phone, offering refreshments and pointing out the details. He is very informative.... More

We called Carmelo the day before we wanted to take a boat (husband, son, and two 15-year old boys). For 60 euro per person we had a private boat the next morning for two hours exploring the bays near Taormina. Twice Luciano (our lovely, English speaking captain) stopped to let us dive off the boat and swim. It was the... More
