We had a fantastic tour to some vineyards on Mount Etna with the Sicily By Day company. Our guide was Antonio who was so informative, pleasant and efficient all day. We were picked up at the hotel door and taken to two vineyards and also to an historic village and a mountain

Response from Emilio S, Public Relations Manager at Etna wine tour
Responded 18 Mar 2020
Dear Elizabeth, Thanks to take the time to write us a review, it will help us to improve our job! For a tour operator a private experience is a tour where the driver/guide/tour leader etc.. picks up only that group, leads only that group, explains only for them. In the wineries, in the coffee bar etc. There were other people/groups. But this is not about us and is very impossible for us avoid it. If it is true that the groups led by other guides were in our partnership is also possible that "Patria" winery, that is a big famous winery, has other guests. Is not something we can manage. They have scheduled visits and they decided that the number of the people in the groups wasn't so high to make two visits. The same about the coffee break. About the walking in the town, unfortunately there was not too much time at your disposal, so some parts of the tour were cancelled. About the wine experience itself, in the program there were Patria Winery and Quantico Winery. The first is a big famous producer (worldwide exporter), the second is led by a 4th generation wine maker with his villa just inside his vineyard. In the first winery the attention is more focused on the process of the winery, in the second one about the fields and the passion Mr. Raiti (quantico owner) puts in all his plants.  That means: short visit in the fields in the first one but long and accurate description of the underground cellar, barrels, woods they use etc etc. then tasting of 3 wines and a sweet one (4 in total) with oil tasting (made by them) olives and bread. After this experience in the second winery: Real Homemade lunch in his home with 2 different types of wine and an interesting walk in the fields with Mr. Raiti himself who has even written books and articles about cure and cut the grapes in the proper way.  We are sorry that you tasted less wines than the program we sent you, we change wineries according to the program of the day. Thanks for Dario, we’re happy that you wrote he is a pleasant guy 😊 From this year (2020) we’ll try to equip all of vans with sound amplification system. We are happy too that after we discuss by private emails, you accept our partial refund for the tour. Your satisfaction is our goal 😊 So again thank you for your feedback, that helps to improve our job , in order to attempt our future work! We hope to meet you again here in Sicily! Best Regards , Sicily Day By Day Staff

I had previously done wine tours in Italy, but this was by far my favorite due to our amazing guide and the great wine. My husband and I booked this experience for our honeymoon and enjoyed spending the time together while getting to experience Italian wines native to the region

My wife and I had the most enjoyable day, sampling good Sicilian wines and sampling the local food. The Company is very professional notifying us of pick up times and emailing a map link of the meeting point which was only 2 minutes walk from our apartment. Our tour guide
