I've never experienced such an incredible tour with such incredible guide like Alfio and Mirco! They were so much fun and knowledgeable! The scenery was amazing! The hike was a bot challenging sometimes but they said "piano piano" so we could breath and walk nicely 😆! We got the full day tour and Alfio and Mirco have good english (with... More

Really good tour with a very knowledgeable guide, Alfio, who knew a significant amount about volcanology and local history. He also took us to bonus sites after the mountain tour was finished. Highly, highly recommended

We would strongly recommend you take a tour of Etna with this company. Our guide Alfio was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, attentive and great fun to be with. We had a brilliant day learning about and and experiencing Etna's beauty thanks in no small measure to our superb guide, 10 out of 5!

We had a very pleasant day outing on the ETNA. We were a group of 6, and our guide was Alfio. He did the whole tour in two languages, without problem. He took us to many different parts of the mountain, taking time to explain the volcanic origins of each part. All in all, it was a very relaxing day,... More

Very friendly and outgoing, he was also exceptionally knowledgeable, courteous and professional! He picked us up at the hotel at exact time the tour was scheduled. His 4WD was very nice and comfortable. He... More

We booked a day tour of Mt Etna with 4WD as shore excursion off a cruise. We had a fabulous day with Alfio. We started out doing the normal Etna things and then went to a vineyard for a wine tasting/lunch which was a highlight of the day. After that Alfio took us through his home town where we stopped...
