When visiting Sicily you simply MUST do a tour of the volcano- Mt Etna. We were lucky enough to visit when the volcano was active- seeing lava flow from 1 KM away was jaw-dropping! Eddy was the perfect host- he had a vast array of knowledge and history of the volcano (could speak multi languages) and you could tell generally... More

We did the Etna Alcantara Off Road trip in late September while staying near Taormina and it was the highlight of a great week in Sicily. In fact it was one of the best excursions I've ever done (and I've done a lot in my time!). The scenery is dramatic, of course, but the main thing is that Eddy is... More

We did the Etna Alcantara Off Toad Tour with Legendary Sicily in September. Sorry for the late review Eddy! As with all the other positive reviews on TA we agree that Legendary Sicily is excellent and the tour is a "must do" if you are staying in Taormina. The Etna Alcantara tour is a wonderful, informative and exciting full day... More

The best tour we've ever been on and the highlight of our week long trip to Sicily. Our guide, Eddy, was extremely knowledgable and passionate about everything to do with the trip, himself being actively involved in many geological and archeological studies on the island over the past couple of decades, including climbing Etna quite literally thousands of times so...

We booked the Mt Etna Alcantara Off Road Excursion with Eddy from Legendary Sicily for €75 per person. We wanted to book the trek to the summit, but due to recent eruptions, this was unfortunately not possible. Pick-up is 8:30 from your hotel and return by 17:30. We were only back at almost 19:00 – there was no rush getting... More

We wanted to hike some of Mt. Etna and finding this company was a great choice. Eddy speaks almost perfect English and he is a very knowledgeable guide. I most enjoyed how he connected elements of physics, geology, astrology, religion in his explanations and details. It all made perfect sense. I could have done with more hiking, did not realise...

They picked us up from Castello di San Marco. Eddy, the guide was very impressive with his knowledge of the area, Etna, geology, physics and he did this in multiple languages. (Italian, English, German at least). If you want to go off the beaten track, get an education, and have a thoroughly interesting day choose this.

We booked a Mount Etna trip last minute with Legendary Sicily and wow it was an amazing day. We were picked up from outside our B&B near the train station in two jeeps. One was driven by Eddy and the other by Francesco. Eddy was the main tour guide. We then began our trip up to Mount Etna. We begun... More

Taormina is a lovely hill town with great food, fun streets, and an unbeatable view, but for something truly unique, take a tour of Mt. Etna with Legendary Sicily. Eddy and Natalie picked up our group of 8 older adults (62-75) at our hotel at 9:00 and returned us at nearly 4:00 for our half day trip. We were driven... More

We took the one day Etna-Alcantara off road tour with Eddy (and Francesco). We throughly enjoyed the day. We were picked up by Francesco at 8.30 and returned a little later than expected at 6.30, Eddy was still educating and guiding us through the towns until the last minute! Very good value at 75€ , were felt. Eddy is a... More
