Very pleasant trip with knowledgable and friendly guide. Breathtaking views of old craters and lava flows from 2000ft and tour down a lava grotto. The biscotti and desert wine was a nice touch. Would recommend
Exciting tour of Etna

The lava cave and hardened lava flows were two amazing parts of the tour. The tour guide was very informative and entertaining and my family had a very enjoyable time.

Walk about on Etna

I had a great time on this trip, the guide was very knowledgeable, need to go back when the flowers are in bloom

Unfortunately my tour didn’t go ahead, we had to turn back in the middle of the way because of the snow. While I know they can’t control the weather and that’s completely not their fault, the agency could’ve warned us that the day before, they had to cancel because of the weather conditions and there was a possibility of it happening again. From there, I could’ve rescheduled. However, I spent with trains from Palermo, accommodation, and winter clothes just for this tour. If I knew there was a slight chance of it being cancelled, I would’ve gone another day, but now I can’t afford it. So it’s very frustrating to say the least. On the bright side, the tour guide, I think his name was Joseph, did try his best to go ahead and was very friendly and nice. He spoke in English, Italian, and French to make all of us understand him on the way to Etna, telling us cool information about the volcano and Catania. When we had to stop, he did seem sad too. And also thank you for the agency for returning my money fast.

I learned a lot about the volcano. The panorama views were also amazing!! I really recommend you to join their tour!
Mt. Etna, amazing tour and opportunity
, Dec 2021
I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide spoke perfect English and was highly knowledgeable about the area. He’s a local and the town he lives in is at the base of the volcano. My husband, 15 year old daughter, and I really enjoyed visiting the volcano & especially going into the lava tubes. We went in November & it was FREEZING, raining, and snowing on the top of the volcano so make sure you bring a water proof jacket when you go. The guide said it’s typical that it rains in that area. Our guide gave us some homemade snacks and some wine when we took a little break at the base of one of the craters. We went during “off” season so the ski lift to the top and some of the small shops weren’t open but we were still able to go to a little restaurant and eat once the tour ended. Very thankful for the experience! Note: this tour is not handicap friendly

Excellent guide (Maurizio), totally recommendable tour. It does worth 100%, you cannot visit Catania without at least a half day trip to mount Etna
Great experience

The guide was very professional and also nice and funny person. Etna is so beautiful place to visit. Highly recommend.
Don’t go if you speak English.
, Sep 2021
When we signed up is was with an English speaking guide. The guide only spoke about 10 English words. He was very nice but just could not communicate in English. He did will with French and Italian. There were 4 english only speaking people on the tour. Unable to understand we stayed back from the hike as we had no idea of what was expected!

Very good experience
, Sep 2021
The trip was very interesting with different experiences (the tunnel and the walk)+ the explanations. The guide was passionate about the subject and told a lot of stories about local life
Very good
, Aug 2021
Very good, though not much hiking, very suitable for people who'd like to see the Etna but do not want to walk very far. Personally, we'd have liked some more hiking but apart from that the tour and the guide were great
Good Etna Excursion
, Jul 2021
Nice history and information about the volcano. We saw several viewpoints and entered a lava tube. We did some tracking, but not so much as to get tired.
A must to do
, Jun 2021
Simon super friendly and passionate. On time, everything ok and well organized, a must to do if you are staying in Catane. Pick up location very close to our hotel.
