From start to finish our trip was fantastic. Denise was a wonderful tour guide with endless knowledge on the area and broader Sicily! The winery was more than gracious with their tasting, and they were delicious wines. Lunch was fantastic as well. Highly recommend to all who want to spend a day in the beautiful Etna countryside.

Absolutely fantastic trip from the moment we were picked up until we were left off. Nice mixed crowd of friendly people on the trip and Carlo the guide was so friendly and informative. His English and knowledge was superb! The visit to the Gambino winery really exceeded our expectations. The sommelier clearly knew what he was talking about and the wine and food were off the scale! The visit to the farm for lunch was again such a great experience. Couldn't recommend this trip enough!

The host was excellent - helpful, friendly and knowledgable. The food was delicious and the wine was varied and flowing! As a vegan, I thought I would have very limited options but I was catered for wonderfully.

What a lovely way to spend the day! Our guide, Denise, was wonderful and so was the wine! After a very informative guided tour from the Gambino Winery staff, we had a delicious tasting accompanied by incredible cheese pairings. (Please try the hard boiled egg with the house olive oil and herbed salt! It seemed out of place but was surprisingly one of my favorite items.) Then we headed off to a gorgeous countryside restaurant that served us one of the best pasta dishes we had the entire trip, and although this wasn't a wine tasting, they provided seemingly bottomless jugs of delicious wine. All-in-all, a perfect day trip! My only call out would be that perhaps it would have been nice to add one more, maybe older winery we could have visited to contrast the more modern Gambino winery.

We had a brilliant day on this tour. Pick up and drop off was really convenient from Taormina. The vineyard we visited was great quality and we tried a number of delicious wines. Our tour guide Antonio was excellent and gave us lots of information. Finally we enjoyed a really great lunch at a charming restaurant. Overall a great day and we would recommend!

We had a wonderful day out with our driver Antonio and 6 other lovely guests, first at the excellent Gambino Winery, where we sampled 6 delicious wines accompanied by cheese, olives and grilled tit-bits, then on to a great little farmhouse restaurant for an enjoyable lunch. The company was delightful and Antonio drive very safely and gave interesting and useful information En-route. Thank you again for a lovely day😊

Food, wine and beautiful views!

Make sure to start this tour with an empty stomach! So much delicious food and wine to taste, coupled with beautiful views over the countryside. However, the best thing about this tour was definitely out tour guide, Denise. She had so many stories to share, so much knowledge about the region and it's history and she explained it in a fun and simple way. She was able to answer any question we had and even some we didn't even know we had. The entire drive she would point out things and explain traditions or local quirks, especially regarding Mama Etna, and it was incredibly fun! Thanks Denise!!

I would definitely recommend this tour! Even though the weather was not on our side, Antonio maximised our experience throughout the day. He gave us lots of interesting information about Sicilian wine, food, lifestyle and the region from the minute we got into the car. The wines and tasting platter were delicious, and there was ample opportunity to purchase wines if we wanted to at the winery. The lunch was superb, and Antonio continued to educate us on all things Sicily at this point. The food, wine, tour and transport really made the tour excellent value for money!

Thanks to Antonio for a hugely enjoyable trip. His knowledge of Sicilian wine, landscape, history, architecture, Archeology and Mount Etna was so impressive and entertaining. He made every effort to tailor the trip to our tastes and he has such an engaging way of communicating. We laughed, we learned and we tasted some spectacular wine and food. On future visits to Sicily we will get in contact with Antonio as he has so much more to offer and will absolutely recommend him to any friends, family and colleagues travelling to Sicily.

It was a lovely day though the guide could have provided more information as we were driving through the countryside. There was very little commentary. The winery was great and the rural restaurant was also wonderful.

Dear Escape, thank You so much for You review and for Your comment that will stimulate us always to improve, even if sometimes someone tell us that our Licensed Guides talk too much on the van :) Warm regards
