Spending the day with Paulo Piana on the Etna Grand Tour was fun, informative, adventurous and entertaining. The day included learning about the the formation of the coastline and the current changes in the topography. He is knowledgeable about the geography of Etna and the patterns of the lava flows. Although I found entering the cave interesting and the view... More

We just did the Sunset tour and we felt very disappointed. The tour is as described and the guide is very nice and friendly but what you get for 55€ is few key information and a trip that is well indicated on the street. It is very easy to plan the visit of those 3 places by your self with... More

We were picked up from our accommodation in Taormina by Diego in his car. It was a 5 +2 seater so we all fit in nicely and were soon on our way towards Catania and Mt Etna. Diego as a guide was friendly and engaging. On the journey he told us about the Volcano and its history as well as... More

We booked the day before receiving confirmation by text of our meeting point. We had wanted a sunset tour but none were available. That evening though was very cloudy and so things may have turned for the best. The tour was rustic but authentic our driver Francesco was friendly and very courteous. Our guide Diego was very knowledgable and engaging.... More

We spent a great morning driving around the mountain with Natalie looking at different aspeects of the mountain. She was lively and interesting on many subjects beyond the mountain itself, notably Sicilian culture and politics.

We only booked our tour the day before and had very good communication from Etna Sicily touring. Our lovely guide, Natalie, arrived at our meeting point on time and picked us up in her car. At this moment it started pouring with rain and then we experienced the worst thunder storm I can remember!!! Thunder, lightening, torrential rain, hail stones,... More

Although in doubt before, we really appreciated the Etna Sunset Tour! Great experience. We really liked the thorough explanations about the geology and biology of the Etna by our guide Antonio! We would really recommend this tour to anyone with any interest in the nature and history of the Etna Parc.

Our guide was Antonio. He was really nice, friendly, and aware of Etna and the nature. I can recomend him to everybody. That was one of the best day of our holiday. All the tour was well organized, and the lunch, no words for it :)

Antonio was really attentive and spoke very good english and made sure we had a very safe but quite demanding trek up to about 22-2300 metres. It was a 4 hour walk which we were able to do without problem - we're fit (in our 50's!) but not used to hiking much. For me the biggest challenge was the sun.... More

I decided last minute to do a half-day Etna tour and agency was flexible to make all the arrangements. I took a morning Etna tour with Paolo who was a great guide with wide knowledge about Etna and volcanoes. We were only 3 in the group which was great to visit all the places in peace and not in hurry... More
