    This was a fantastic tour! Our guide, Kevin, was very personable and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about Etna history and geology, as well as Sicilian culture. The tour was well paced, with several crater stops and a wonderful wine, oil, honey, olive, etc., tasting at mid-morning, and a three-course lunch at the last stop. I booked this tour to let my family, who was visiting from the US, experience Etna; in a 10-day tour of five Sicilian towns, this excursion was my sister’s favorite. Definitely worth the price!

    Awesome experience with a GREAT guide!

    Enjoyed all five stages of the tour. Started at the base, drove up to the ORO d Etna honey winery, went to a lookout (great for pics), went down into a cave, and ended at the mountain top for exploration. We then proceeded to lunch on Etna. Great day, and hats off to our wonderful guide!!!

    Very interesting and rewarding excursion with 3 course lunch. However, was only 5 hours.
