    This is an excellent tour, well organised and very informative. Pick up and drop of from the hotel was great and all on time. The guide provided a fascinating insight to mount Etna, it’s history and the unpredictability of volcanos. This is a must do tour when staying in Catania.

    Giovanni was an excellent guide who imparted his knowledge and experience of Mt Etna perfectly in both English & Italian. We were given plenty of guidance & time to enjoy the breathtaking scenes of this mountain. Then just when we thought the afternoon couldn’t have been better, Giovanni took us to a picnic spot to view the sunset where he amazed us with his knowledge of the local food and wine. Along with our own experiences, it was really nice to have a small group of people to share the experience with. We all got on well together. Thanks for such a special day!

    A great adventure with very special people !!

    The experience has been very satisfactory, a lot of professionalism and knowledge from the guide Carmelo. In addition the other guides were very attentive at all times of the group, explaining each of the details of the tour in Italian, English and French. Highly recommended to truly know the history and evolution of Etna.
