Tours to Piazza Romana

My wife and I will be in Sicily in May and in Taormina from perhaps 23 May to 28 May. We would like to go on a couple of organized group day tours (not expensive private tours) in particular a tour to Piazza Armerina (that does not include Agrigento which we are going to from Palermo a week earlier). It seems that interbus.it has a barebones tour to Piazza Armerina for 18 euros. Sicilyexcursions.com shows only a tour that includes Agrigento. Any advice on good tour operators that do Piazza Amerina? Also, how inundated with tourists is Taormina at the end of May?

Welcome to Sicily Steven B!

Taormina isn't extremely busy the end of May as the film fest and performances begin in June, and May is early for beaches even if the lidi would be open. Cruisers are your main concern, and so you might consult cruise schedules for Messina, Catania, and Giardini to determine how busy the town would be during the time of your intended visit.

Private excursions are possible, but those indicated are the primary companies running the group bus excursions.
