Silvano was very personable and accommodating.
We had a wonderful trip and were so glad we booked our Taormina/Etna excursion independently - not only because we saved a fair amount of money vs booking with the cruise company but more so because we got to see the area through Silvano's eyes. Silvano was very personable and accommodating - he even apologized for the rain! He had an extra jacket and umbrellas for us, which came in handy, as well as some fresh-picked blood oranges. Coming down from the summit, he stopped beside a house mostly immersed in old lava for a photo opportunity and took a photo of my brother and niece standing on top of the roof - one of the many highlights of this trip. As we did not choose to stay at the summit for very long he gave us choices of what we could do as we had the time. We chose to go to Catania and the public market which was a real highlight. We were able to wander at our leisure before meeting up with him again. This was a nice relaxing excursion, different from the hustle and bustle of Florence and Rome. Please tell Silvano how much we enjoyed his casual yet knowledgeable personality. I would definitely recommend your company and Silvano to others. Ciao and thanx.
