But, differently, we offer excursions more informal and engaging with outstanding itineraries.Our guides, professional and adept, will lead you to the discovery of the volcanological and ethnographic aspects of Etna, as well as its flora and fauna. A picnic of Sicilian flavors for a festive break accompanied by good local wine will also enable you to remember this day not just as a simple excursion but also as an experience brightened by colors and emotions. The collected feedback from all the B&Bs and Hotels have left us able to individualize suggestions, itineraries and qualified people able to transform the excursions around the volcano into an authentic experience. « less

An amazing day and an amazing experience! We did this trip on the 7th April. Our guide was knowledgeable and witty! He made the experience interesting and we got more from it than if we went alone. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is reasonably fit as it is a good 7 hour hike but broken up by... More

I want to let everyone know that this is by far the best tour. WE had amazing guides Alexander and Maurenello. They were both experts in field and kept us well informed and great lunch and wine. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone of all ages! The caves were best part for my kids!!!!

Great way to visit Etna, our guide Danilo was very experienced, informative and a very nice guy. We hiked Etna, visited Alcantara , visited a cave and also had a typical lunch in a restaurant with some wine. Will highly recommend to anyone I know, well worth its price.

Had a great day hiking the mountain with our guide Toni. He was very knowledgeable about the volcano and the flora and fauna on living on it. Definitely the way to experience the mountain. 6 people with a guide vs. a bus load of people with photo stops. The lunch stop was a very interesting mountain top restaurant.... great food.... More

If you are travelling to catania and haven't not been to mt etna, there's something really wrong with you! And if you are one of the normal ones, take a tour with this company.

The main reason we went to Sicily was to visit Mount Etna. Having researched Etna tour guides, we chose 'Etna Experience' and are very glad that we did. The guide was very knowledgeable, full of interesting facts about the volcano and the surrounding natural environment, plus he kept us amused for hours with his wonderful sense of humour. We both...

What a wonderful tour with a knowledgeable and passionate guide, Emanuele. As our trip was a last minute arrangement the tour office did offer to provide jackets and hiking boots, if needed. Thank you for helping us to appreciate the beauty of Mount Etna. Thoroughly enjoyable experience, a must do once in Catania!

The guides were fantastic, friendly... More
