Rosario Vecchio Private tour guide in Catania, Taormina - Italy

Rosario Vecchio

Guide profile:

My names is Rosario but I prefer to be called simply Saro. I'm an History degree and I grow up in a small village on mount Etna. I share my passion for the territory where I live doing every day tours on Mt. Etna, Catania, Siracusa, Taormina etc. I focus my guiding on unconventional information which are able to tell the soul of the place, that here means art, food, tradition, history and more, all together, because it's impossible to separate them in Sicily. Let's have a relaxing walk together, you won't regreat.

Rosario was an amazing tour guide! He took my 21 year old son and I to Siracusa, Noto and Modica. He was very accommodating and had an incredible amount of knowledge about the history of Sicily.. He also recommended a colleague of his, a great guy named Raffaele, who took us on a great hike of Mount Etna in the morning and a city tour of the Taromina area in the afternoon, since Rosario was not available that day. Raffael was also very knowledgeable and accommodating. Awesome experience!

We had a great walking tour of Catania with Rosario. Rosario meet us at our apartment, and the end of our tour he walked us back to our apartment. We walked the central sections of Catania, and Rosario explained where we were, what we were seeing, where we were going. We stopped along the way for coffee, and since it was late in the day, Rosario walked us by several restaurants that we could consider for dinner. Rosario was knowledgeable, interesting, spoke English well and a great guide.

Rosario is a terrific guide and gave us a great experience in Catania. He was flexible and very easy to communicate with before the tour and during the tour he was informative and easy to understand. He adjusted his guidening to our specific needs and has a very broad knowledge about Catania and Italy. We can recommend him as a tour guide and we are looking forward to use his services again on our next trip to Sicily. Rgds Daniel & Malene

I found Rosario to be a guide that really wants to work and that despite minor setbacks he would continue to provide his clients with the service with a smile. He did go out of his way to make my Etna climb a memorable one. From my experience it is easy for me to recommend him. Grazzie Rosario. Oh by the way his English is very good and that's important as my Italiano does not go very far.
