Couldn't recommend using Continente Sicilia enough. Davide is a gentleman and shows a real passion in what he does. His knowledge of the mountain is beyond impressive and his love of what he does makes the tour a real privilege to be part of. We spent half day on Etna then half day at Gambino Winery with Davide. A fantastic... More

My wife and I toured Mt. Etna with Davide for about 4 hours and then talked about the volcano while enjoying lunch at Rifugio Citelli on the mountain. His explanation of what we were seeing and the history of Mt. Etna was exactly what we were hoping to get. The walks he took us on were not too long and... More

We had a fantastic day with Davide on Wednesday 28th May on and around Etna. The weather was extreme with snow and had winds so we could not stay around the craters for long. Davide made up for it with his knowledge and love of the area. My children loved the lava tunnel he took them into It was very... More

We were apprehensive about how best to "tackle" Etna -- to really see her and learn something and not to be jammed into a bus with a dozen people we did not know. Davide's Continente Sicilia was the perfect choice. He is extremely flexible and casual. As a former park ranger he is extremely knowledgable and clearly loves his work... More

We chose to do an Etna excursion having read all the glowing reviews on this site and were delighted that we did. We are not usually given to taking such individualised tours but this was definitely worth the extra money. Davide is extremely knowledgeable about Etna and clearly has a great passion for his work. You get plenty of time... More

My friend recommended me to take this Etna tour and it was just great! Clouds did not allow us to enjoy the view of Etna's top, however, the whole trip was very interesting and scenes were very beautiful. Coupled with Davide's profound knowledge of, and I must say passion for the area and everything related to volcanos (which I did... More

We spent a day on Mt. Etna with Davide in late March. It was cold and raining and he had a cold so we told him to give us the nature tour around the mountain. We visited the canyons, looked at lichens on ancient stone walls, cataloged the wild flowers and trees at different levels on the way up and... More

We were ready for a guided hike up Mt Etna; knew we'd be treated to wonderful sites and the thrill of the experience. Little did we know that Davide is not just a professional hiking guide, but a true vulcanologist, naturalist, and botanist! He is well-studied and has a great way of discussing all the great and small wonders of... More

At the last minute, our family (spouse, 2 teens and myself) decided to tour Mt. Etna. It was our last full day in Sicily (after 3 weeks) and we were tired of Taormina as we had been there 3 days. I called/emailed Davide and he made himself available and custom designed a tour of Mt. Etna and the surrounding area... More

We usually sort things out for ourselves and rarely book private tours when we travel, but Mt Etna in a day looked like a challenge and we wanted to experience as much as possible. Davide's knowledge, enthusiasm and service, from pick up to drop off after a long day was what made our experience of Etna so hassle-free and thoroughly... More
