    A very easy tour to get to almost 3000 m on Etna without exerting yourself and exhausting yourself. Punctual transport from Taormina to the valley station of the lift on Etna and back. On the bus you get a little explanation in Italian and English. From the upper station of the cable car, comfortable all-terrain "minibuses" take you to the starting point of a short tour of the crater. A mountain guide greets you and gives you a very good introduction to the activities of Mount Etna.

    Very nice trip

    The organization was perfect. The statements of the tour guide were informative, but not boring. The long waiting times can not be charged to the tour guide. Unfortunately, some guests did not stick to the agreed departure time, so the others had to wait more than 45 minutes. Thanks to the tour guide, everyone was taken back to Taormina.

    The trip was well organized, we had a great guide with Alexandra, who has given us a lot of information. The only disadvantage; after we came back to the bus parking lot from 2,900 m altitude Etna, we had only 10 minutes time. This was definitely not enough, it was just a toilet. Here, the return trip should be postponed one hour back, so that you can still spend some time there for yourself, take photos, snacks, etc.
