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.

Amazing experience of Sicilian wine and food

We did this trip in late May and it started with a beautiful drive into the hills north of Etna. The greenery and abundance of wildflowers at this time of year were amazing. The winery tour was detailed and the antipasti and wine tasting were excellent. We then proceeded to a nearby restaurant with stunning scenery and were presented by dish after dish of great local food. Our tour overran by an hour or so. We were not rushed by our guide who was a pleasure to have with us. All round a fantastic, almost full, day out.

Had a great time on this tour. Picked up from our hotel right on time. We have Guiseppe as our guide and he was very knowledgeable about Mount Etna and the Sicilian way of life. The winery was very interesting and were generous with tastings and appetisers. The lunch was also something to remember with unique dishes (we ate donkey). Loved it!

This is a great tour to do. Plenty of wine and food. We thought the first set of dishes in the winery was enough but this was followed by a delicious lunch. There was so many small tasty dishes. Valerio our guide was great. Enough information but not too much. Loved the orange salad. The win e at the vineyard was superb and gave me plenty of ideas for for choices at restaurants.
