    Nice tour with super nice guide

    We had a nice afternoon with the group on the Etna. Our guide Achille spoke very good English and was super personable. He really had a lot of know-how and was able to competently answer any question that was asked. Picking up the tour guests from the individual hotels was somewhat more complex. Since many of the participants lived in Taormina (old town), the journey was pretty long. The streets there are very narrow and you can hardly get through with the big Bulli. Nevertheless, Achille was able to drive very well, which is why we always felt safe. Plus point: you get to see something from Taormina. The stop at a shop for local specialties was also quite interesting, you could try everything. It was timely and you were not asked to buy anything or anything. Relaxed atmosphere and really ok. Walking on the Silvestri crater in the end was of course the highlight. Highly recommended for the price !!

    Great trip, as described. We had a lovely guide and saw a range of the volcanic landscapes Etna has. Sunset was incredible and the whole trip was comfortable and set to the pace of the group. My wife was 5 months pregnant and the trip was fine. The guide was accomodating and made sure she was OK without diminishing the experience for others. This is something you really MUST do when visiting Sicily. Absolutely breathtaking.

    Great experience! Very dedicated guide. We had actually booked the tour in German, but was only possible in English, but in the end it wasn't a problem. The stop at a honey, wine, oil, etc. producer didn't have to be, but there was a lot to taste and buy. Etna and the landscape were impressive. We can only recommend it! Many helpful explanations were given. In the description of the excursion is food and drinks included, that was completely missing. We would have been very happy about at least a bottle of water, because 6 hours are already long.
