We booked the daytime Etna tour which leaves Taormina bus-station at 7am. The first half-hour is spent collecting other tourists from nearby destinations, then there is a half hour drive to a gorge where you have to pay an extra 8 euros as it is not included in the price. It really isn't worth the extra money, but worse than... More

Don't expect individual chauffeur-driven tour (as one reviewer would seem to have expected). This is a coach/boat tour. The boat is not all yours, and the coach is busy/full. BUT it is such a good trip that i have done it twice, in 2013 and 2014. I was appalled that few tourists tipped the guide and the driver. They depend... More

My husband and I wanted to visit the vulcan Etna, and our hotel recommended SAT. During our days in Taormina we could choose between a day trip which included a detour to a river or a sunset trip, which unfortunately also had dinner on the schedule. We chose the sunset due to an extremely hot weather. We got picked up... More

Etna by sunset. It started with a 1,5 hours bus drive, 30 minutes in the wrong direction to pick up other guests. The guide was German, and quite good. Spoke good english. When we arrived at 1900 meters we had - of some strange reason - to wait 1,5 hours before we contiuned. It was nothing to do other than... More

Our Mount Etna Tour was worth every Euro spent. We took the sunset tour and enjoyed a break from the record breaking high temps of Sicily. Our excursion guide (Nino) was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Be sure to wear a sweater and long pants and closed toe shoes. We visited in July so our mountain temp was around 15C ish......

On our recent trip to Sicily we booked 3 SAT tours to Etna at sunset, Siracusa and the islands of Panarea & Stromboli. Etna at sunset was an amazing trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of information. We made our 1st stop at 1900m where we got some time to look around and hire coats (recommended)... More

We took the sunset tour to Etna with SAT Tour Group. It was a great tour that we can truly recommend. The bus was comfortable and the driver amazing at driving at those small roads. The guide was interesting and told lots of history of the region. Once up at basecamp, we continued with jeeps up to almost 3 000... More

Booked a SAT tour in Taormina for Mt Etna. Paid 88 Euro which included cable car and jeep. Bus arrived on time, guide helpful and spoke 4 languages well!! Impressed. Also, quite informative. Arrived at the base camp area, which is just full of tourist shops and overpriced restaurants. This is where it went a bit down hill (excuse the... More

The trip to Noto for the Spring Flower Festival with the SAT bus company was extremely pleasurable. I must praise the driver for his excellent driving that enabled me to enjoy the view of all the beautiful landscapes along the way (which I normally can't do due to travel-sickness). The guide was very friendly, helpful and professional, explaining things and... More

We took the SAT tour to Mt Etna and upgraded to go to the summit. Surreal experience, the summit of one of the world's most active volcano's and we were expecting heat, steam etc. Instead we were surrounded by 3m of snow with gale force winds - boy was it cold! The tour itself was great but our guide left... More

Dear Sue, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you have the impression that the guide was not that friendly, surely the points raised by the other clients were concerning the agency and were not involving the explanation of the site which is the guide's task.
