We found this tour to be a wonderful experience. Marcello was very educational and very entertaining. We got to hear the history explained and get an up close look to be able to picture it. It gave us a whole new perspective on Mount Etna.

We chose the trekking tour and Antonio picked us up from the apartment on schedule. We then went to one of his favorite places to get a sandwhich to eat on Etna. Antonio is very knowledgeable about Etna and was very informative and made the whole experience as fun as possible!! We saw a lot on the trek and then... More

Two great highlights: Etna in its majesty, beauty, richness and awe-inspiring vastness; and Paolo, our engaging, warm and very knowledgeable guide. My partner and I booked at the very last minute (the evening before), and we were punctually picked up in front of our hotel in Catania, the next day at 830. The trip started with a visit to the...

Amazing trip to the most active volcano in the European continent, with some small explosions and amazing view over the sea and city of Catania. We had a guided tour with some other quests where we find out about the latest eruptions and history of the other ones, you can still feel the warm ash. This place is a "... More

Great trip at sunset, well worth the €39. Interesting mix of terrain, great light, brilliant view of full moon, heard some explosions, really interesting section in caves (with hard hats and torches). Lively, fun and informative guide (Paolo), a bundle of energy!

My partner and I took the sunset tour and found it very average. For 110 euros we had expectations that the trip would provide more than just a ride to the Etna! We were picked up with four other guests and taken in a four wheel drive to the mountain. On the way we were told some basic facts about... More

I am sorry that you were not satisfied of the quality / price ratio. The costs are many (professional guide, gasoline, the wear and tear on the vehicle, the passenger insurance, helmets and torches to enter into the cave and the tasting of oil and honey like is described in the brochure) If you rent a car and do the...

You can do the trip yourself, but with a guided tour you are told the history the volcano and the area. You are also shown the (many) craters that have been formed over the thousands of years that Etna has been developing. Etna is known as the 'lady' and she certainly has her own characteristics and by stopping at various... More

Thank you for writing a review on our profile. I would like to point out that not all the tour can be done without the aid of a guide, for example, without the guide you would not have been able to explore the cave. I'm glad you enjoyed the service and that you enjoyed the notions received from our guide More

The trip is worth doing but not with ETNA Sicily Touring I had a dreadful experience booking on-line with them. Their website draws you in with a headline cost, but (I discovered later) in tiny letters it says that you pay an extra if you haven't pre-booked 10 days in advance (both of us who made the booking didn't spot...

Hello, all of our tour will be confirmed in the days before the excursion with an e-mail in which we communicate the total amount to be paid in cash to the guide. It seems strange that you did not receive this e-mail communication. All feedback is welcome to improve our tour. Thank you for your review. More

I did the Etna Grand Tour which also went to Acicastello and Achitrezza. Paolo was the perfect guide; knowledgable, entertaining and punctual. Etna was spectacular. Though you can visit it by yourself you get a much better insight from having someone who really knows it explain it to you. We stopped at various spots on the way up, sites of... More
