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

We were staying at Davide's B&B and he warned us the night before that he thought there might be some activity on Mt Etna and to be ready if there was. Sure enough the next morning at 6:30 he messaged to say it was erupting and he picked us up a few minutes later. What followed was the most incredible... More

Even though we wanted to enjoy trekking in Mt. Etna and winary tour, my husband and I had no idea what would happen to us until we met Davide. We had little information about Sicily because north parts of Italy, such as Firenze, Milano, or Rome are more popular in my country, Japan. He was very flexible and asked what... More

We spent 10 hrs with Davide on an unbelievable tour. The price is well worth it. He picked us up at our B&B and along with one other couple we had a glorious day. Mt Etna of course was the highlight. Davide is so knowledgable and it was breathtaking to take in the sight of Etna. He's more then a... More

We spent a whole day with Davide. He picked us up at our hotel in Riposto (30 kms from Taormina). He is an excellent guide and speaks very good English. He has a lot of expertise on Mount Etna; it is safe to say it is his passion these days. He took us to several areas around Mt.Etna. I thought... More

To the point. This would have to be one of the best tours we have ever been on. On our last day of a 5 week Europe trip the Etna tour was probably the major highlight!! Davide is not just a fantastic tour guide but a pasionate Sicilian. You don't just get a tour guide, you'll be looked after from... More

We have just returned from a trip to Sicily, one of the highlights of which was a trip to Mount Etna orchestrated and guided by Davide from Continente Sicilia. We were a group of 9 - 4 adults and 5 children - ages ranging from 8 to 15 yrs. The whole experience was fantastic. We were staying in Syracuse and... More
