This was a brilliant experience of the highest quality. It was exactly as described and more. It was an adventure experience with helmets, proper boots that we hired (at no cost!) from the company and this meant we had full confidence in the equipment and the company. They took safety seriously, which enabled us to take on an exciting endeavour without unnecessary risk. We were all of a good fitness , as required by this trek meaning that we felt accomplished afterwards. The explanations by a proper volcanic geologist were interesting and appropriate, providing insight without being overwhelming. The meet-up point was clear and convenient to leave your car. Owing to the early start, a hire car is the best way to get there and amazing views en-route. Although there are hairpin bends, they are not scary as there are no steep drops below, like alpine roads. Overall, a fabulous experience which I couldn't have been happier with , especially the periodic crater smoke billowing up.
The tour was very well organised and exactly as advertised, the guide Luca was very passionate and gave a lot of explanations. The tour itself was very nice and the views amazing.
Perfect. Luca (our guide) is highly knowledgeable and made the trek very dynamic. I totally recommend it, it’s been an incredible experience. Grazie Luca!
Once in a lifetime experience. Despite the poor visibility and not being able to climb up to the highest crater it was an amazing experience!
The trek went up and beyond expectations. The guide really knew his stuff. Highly recommend.
