I don't know why Legendary Sicily is not rated #1 on tripadvisor, because Eddy is by far, the most knowledgable tour guide we have ever encountered. He has studied geology and was able to explain how volcanoes work to all of us including our young children. It was really fun doing the Enta tour with him and we would definitelt... More

Absolutely brilliant trip which was really different and a great day! Eddy covered our excursion and he had a real passion for his job, with great knowledge of Sicily and Etna and he also had great English. We went on the Etna off Road and Alcantara Gorge trip, would definitely recommend it and well worth every penny.

Just back from a great trip to Letojanni - Taormina. Eddy was doing our excursion! He is a lovely man! His wisdom beyond the Volcano! Picked us up from the Hotel. Although a full day it went by so quick! We wore trainers, long sleeve fleece with a layer and trousers/tracksuit. (It was windy and chilly) Sunglasses and cap if... More

There were just six of us on this memorable excursion to the North side of Mount Etna with Eddy Tronchet of Legendary Sicily. Compare that to the fifty plus on the coach to the south side (which we also did and enjoyed in a different way). During the whole day’s excursion we met very few people (unlike south side) and...

This was a fantastic day trip through Mt. Etna and the surrounding towns. Eddy was a wonderful guide who was not only knowledgeable about the history of this area, but gives the real sense of being passionate and caring of everyone he is giving this experience to! Eddy, the multi-lingual Mt. Etna maestro, brings you back to that childhood excitement... More

We enjoyed this trip so much last year we booked again on our return to Taormina. Eddy is best contacted by email on Legendary Sicily's website as he is usually out on trips - he responds promptly and all arrangements for time, pick-up etc can be made. This time there were just 2 4x4s for a small group of 8.... More

We were very lucky to be on this tour with only one other couple along with Eddy and Francesco so we felt like we were getting an exclusive insight to Etna and the surrounding areas. I would highly recommend the Etna Off Road/ Alcantara tour for anyone who wants to feel part of the culture and history of Sicily and... More

My family of 4 (my wife and I and two teenage boys) did the Mt. Etna tour with Eddy. I can't say enough good things about Eddy. He made things interesting and exciting for my boys.

What we really liked about this trip, was the passion with which Eddy carries out the tour. It is a full day trip on the Northern side of Mount Etna and the Alcantra valley. It was a small group, unlike the large bus trips organised by other tour operators. The hiking is easy, so anyone can do it. Book in... More
