Great Mountain Town
Oct 2019
My husband is a HUGE fan of the Godfather movies so naturally when we were in Sicily we had to take the Godfather tour. I'm so glad we did because the town was really a site to see. It sits upon this mountain and there's just the one road that leads to the church and the cafe's espresso was on point. Taorimna was a nice town to walk around shop and eat some food.

Bait and switch

My husband is an avid Godfather enthusiast and we were looking forward to seeing some of the filming sites. When we met the tour leader we were informed that the tour was unavailable and we were supposed to have been notified. We were offered a substitute tour of Castelmare and Taormina or a refund. We took the alternate tour, not having anything else planned. The guide was informative and the sites were lovely, but not what we were expecting.

Best Tour of My Mediterranean Trip!
Oct 2019
When Mariarita, our tour guide, started off the day with her big beautiful smile, I knew we were off to a great day! She was very friendly and professional. Right away, she provided us with bottled water and a pastry. Her English was beautiful and she was very knowledgeable. Both the little mountaintop village of Savoca & the tourist town of Taormina were beautiful stops to visit. I would highly recommend this tour.

Toured Savoca where the Godfather wedding scene was shot . Also walked up the steep hill to the church. Messina town was also very scenic and we sat and enjoyed a pizza and cannoli's overlooking the stunning views. Our tour guide Chiara and drivery Roberto was very friendly were very friendly, professional and very thoughtful. Highly recommended to every one going to Sicily!!

Best excursion!
We just did The Godfather tour with Chiara, our guide, and Roberto, our driver. What a wonderful day! The drive is breathtaking. Savoca is so charming and what fun to experience some of the sites of The Godfather movie. We took a little shuttle to the top of the hill to see the church where Michael and Appelonia were married. Then on to Taormina where Chiara guided us through the town and gave us time to dine and shop on our own. Without question this has been the best tour so far. Chiara is a delight! She’s so helpful and very professional. If you’re going to be in Sicily we highly recommend Discover Messina, Roberto and especially Chiara!

A trip worth taking with wonderful tour guides
Sep 2018 • Friends
Most of us grew up watching the Godfather and never did I think I would visit a location where a portion of the movie was filmed. The tour guides Laura and Tana were very gracious and provided us with water and a sicilian pastry to set the scene and get us started in seeing the beauty of Sicily.. We started up to this town where this quaint cafe rested which is where Michael saw his Apolonia. I would go back again just to have the espresso and pistachio canolo (yes I spelled that correctly you will learn why). The history of the area was very interesting and the girls were very patient in keeping the group together. The town of Taormina was a delight. Plenty of shopping and different foods to try. We witness a Sicilian wedding and that was an added plus to our day. I would highly recommend this particular tour you wont regret it.
