What people are saying about Sicily

Outstanding, a bucket list perfect tick...trekking an active volcano

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.

Roberto is an aesthete with such a passion for his subject - Sicily!

We were picked up at 10.30am by Roberto, our tour guide.As we sped along in his battered Ford he explained about the lava, it's use in building and architecture,it's fertile minerals,the importance of the sun,the wind,the rain and the old ways of making wine. We started with a small producer, meeting up with two other couples and their guides.We sampled a white, a rose and two reds, all generously poured, the perfumed white proved to be our favourite of the day. Next we went to a slightly bigger outfit where we sat down at tables and were given a light meal of foccacia, sun-dried tomatoes, aubergine pickled with celery, olives marinated with fennel, small slices of salami and cubes of cheese. Still only the three couples, we sampled a white, a rose, two reds and a red dessert wine. Lastly we went to the Gambino estate, the panoramic view was simply stunning.Pleasantly full and slightly stupified we relaxed in the back of the Ford instead worrying about the cracked windscreen!

Great guide and experience. Information on arrangements poor.

Web site said Etna, then described Stromboli? Confirmation email said 8:30 departure. Gondola does not start until 9:00 ? Actual guiding by Ashara out of a van, not an Information Centre. No information on this. Web site still indicates trek to 3,300m along crater rim. Not possible due to recent eruptions, but web site should be up to date. Salvatore (guide) excellent. Very knowledgeable and took the time to provide many explanations. He kept a good pace and looked after the slower members of the group. Overall, enjoyed the trek very much.

Great trip that would have been tricky to organise without the tour

We booked this trip as we wanted a nice easy way to see Mount Etna and get some info from a specialist. We were really happy with the trip, our guide Guiseppi was amazing! Really informative and positive, he seemed really happy to be our guide and genuinely interested in the subject. We did a lovely trek and saw lots of variation in landscape. And it was all topped off with lots of wine and delicious food. Plus, the boot hire was great as we hadn't come prepared for a hike. Very comfy shoes! Would definitely recommend this tour.

Great adventure, cool trail, lot of interesting facts

We had a really good time on this excursion. Our guide Giovanni was very pleasant and knowledgeable and he shared lot of information about the mountain, environment, volcanic activity, plants, etc. You can really see that he enjoys what he does :) The trail was full of cool elements (craters, viewpoints, lava exit points, etc.). Lunch afterwards was also very nice and we drank a pretty tasty wine ;) In the end, Alcantra Gorges were wonderful :)) All in all, I highly recommend this classic tour.
