My wife and I were picked up on time by our friendly and knowledgable tour guide, Silvia. We picked up another couple on the way so benefited from a more personal service. Silvia described in detail the various eruptions and took us into a lava tunnel/cave which was fantastic! We visited a number of sites and were fascinated by the... More

We were picked up promptly by Sebastiano and joined one other couple in his Landrover. Sebastiano is a geologist and a very pleasant guide and his English is reasonable and fortunately he felt no need to drive like a Sicilian. The Landrover was not air conditioned although the brochure promotes this. It was not really a problem as we were... More

Sebastiano was our guide he was a very knowledgeable and an experienced guide. Sebastiano was very friendly and we had a fabulous tour with him.

First things first: we mixed up the date and missed our guide because of this. When we called the next day to excuse and arrange an alternative tour, the reaction was totally disrespectful and unforthcoming. The tour which we did not attend was already paid for so was asked for a discount and an alternative. The person on the other... More

Last week we visited Sicily, one of the goals was to get acquainted with the beauty of a single active volcanic Mount in Europe - Etna. And we are lucky that we chose GeoEtna Explorer agency that gave us the opportunity to touch to this beauty. Without no doubt I would like to recommend this agency, and especially guide Silvia....

We were absolutely impressed by the Natural Park of Etna. We profited of a good weather and good guide Etna was speaking to us, by the long "booooms", as that day it was quite active. We have got a lot of very interesting information from our guide, who known the answer for any question concerning Etna. Thank you, Silvia!

We took the Taormina + Etna Explorer trip. Caught the 6:30 bus from Siracusa (where we were staying) to Catania for a planned 8 am start of trip. We were picked up late from the bus station after 8 am in Catania but we ended up sitting in one of the company's jeeps for almost an hour while the guides/drivers... More

Dear Robert, We're sorry you didn't enjoy your trip. As you surely remember, because of the bad weather and your little children we decided together to plan a tour focused more on visiting Taormina rather than visiting Mount Etna. Your service was tailor made, private, with an entire jeep reserved for your family and a five-hour-long visit to Taormina. Usually,... More
