The trip was amazing and with the snow it made it all magical. Toni was excellent, his passion for Etna passed to all of us. We left feeling we want to know even more about it and come back for more. Thank you Toni and Get your guide for an amazing experience!

It was a great tour by guide Tony. He was very knowledgeable about Mt Etna and Sicily and shared a vast amount of information regarding vulcanology in general. He was also very easy to chat with which made the tour more enjoyable. It was clear he was passionate about what he does which really helps. The tour was well organised with hiking boots and jackets included if needed as well as gloves, beanies, etc. We learnt about the volcano and lava and got the opportunity to climb craters, explore lava caves and then finallt, enjoyed a fine (and very filling) meal paired with some excellent wines. Highly recommend!

This was a great tour. Only 8 in our group. We were picked up at our hotel and then to Mt Etna. The hike to the craters was steep and well paced. Our guide Ezio was very knowledgeable about volcanos and Mt Etna history.
