Eddie has an astounding knowledge of archeology, history and geology, which he shares with warmth and generosity. This fascinating tour brings the mystery, majesty and miracle of molten lava to a life and he wraps it all up with intriguing, thought provoking references to the worlds of science, maths and religion. If you're reasonably fit, its a manageable hike in... More

What a wonderful experience! Who would have thought that one can get so close to an erupting volcano? We were picked up punctually from our meeting point and comfortably driven to the crater of Mount Etna with guided commenatry on everything we wanted to know in 4 different languages. Eddy is so easy going, well informed and organised- one could... More

Taormina has been renown for its extraordinary natural beauty and micro-climate since Greek times, and poets and writers have extolled its charms over the centuries. As a humble tourist, however, I would like to add that what ultimatly endeared the city to me was the confirmation of the absence of petty crime. Indeed a lost wallet at the Gambero Rosso... More

We recently chose Taormina as our holiday destination for two reasons, one it's a fabulous place and two it is close to Etna (our hotel had Etna views). We knew we wanted an Etna tour and our hotel booked a jeep tour of Etna and the Alcantara Gorges on our behalf with Legendary Sicily, they really could not have chosen... More

We were picked up by Natalie, a real volcano expert, who proceeded to show us some amazing hidden locations around the East and North of Mt Etna, including a quick and fascinating excursion underground to see an ice cave. Natalie gave us three options for lunch, we chose the one with wine tasting included, wonderful experience, the rest of the... More

Great experience. After exchanging some mails with Eddy we got a good feeling. Natalie picked us up to Etna. Short break for a Sicilian breakfest and heading to vulcano. Nice and open person, we pratically said what we want to do. We decide on a 2 hour walk with great views. After that, a perfect combination, we went to 2... More

We chose the Etna-Alcantara tour and it was one of the best days of our entire vacation. Our guide “Eddy Junior” was an excellent ambassador of the Taormina area. He shared an impressive knowledge of the recent and historical geological activity Mt Etna. But even more importantly in our minds, he had a real connection with the surrounding area and... More

We did the full-day 'Etna Off Road Alcantara' Trip. We were lucky to share the trip with only two other couples and of course Eddy himself who is fluent in many different languages and what seems to me is a walking encyclopedia who has a wealth of knowledge not only about the history and surrounding plant life of Mount Etna...
