Owner description: Tired of working in mass consumption tourism industry, we decided to go for a niche, walking tours, excursions, tours in jeeps and hoking on Etna volcano. Instead of touring people to places where everybody goes, we dediced to do the contrary: small areas, off the beaten track, real local life, good walks, good food and wine....

“Amazing views of Etna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I was in a small group led by Franco...he took us on a trek up Etna that was perfectly suited to our groups fitness level and allowed us to see some magnificent sights!!! We also ventured deep into volcanic caves and viewed the 2001 crater! Great afternoon led by a great guide!

“Amazing Etna tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Ernesto was a great guide. He knew very much about Mt Etna and took us to some special places (incl. a lava cave and good photo spots) and provided good hiking shoes. In short: four amazing hours spend on a very special place!
Tip: take the afternoon tour. Viewing the sunset from up high was absolutely beautiful.

“Mt Etna with Ernesto - brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Ernesto was a brilliant guide, and gave us so much information about Mt Etna. He took us to a lava tunnel which you would not have known existed otherwise. His knowledge on the mountain and its surrounds was outstanding. We were in a five person party, with ages from 9 to 65 and he catered for everyone's requirements. His choice in fruit is excellent! Our only regret is that we didn't give him a big enough tip! Thanks so much Ernesto.

“A good way to avoid driving in Sicily without missing Etna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Our hotel recommended the tour and my husband and I were collected at 9am and returned safely five and a half hours later by Ernesto. He is a geology expert and gave us a wonderful tour, including places not normally available to the independent traveller, such as a lava tunnel. We had the choice of eating or not at the tourist restaurant. If I were a bit younger than 72 I would have been tempted to take the higher of the two climbs offered but it was exhilarating anyway. We thoroughly recommend this tour to any visitor.

“Best Tour of My Life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

A few friends and I flew down to Catania not really knowing what to expect. We heard of Mount Etna but nothing beyond that. At the last minute, we all decided we wanted to see the volcano, to have a real adventure. Marco's Etna Trekking Tour was highly recommended to us from one of the local businesses. We were told it is a once in a lifetime experience. We soon learned this was more than true. Not only is Marco extremely knowledgeable of Mount Etna and the surrounding area, he has a true respect and love for this "bringer of life". You will understand the history and leave with all questions answered. It was one of the most beautiful and thrilling adventures one could ask for. I strongly recommend all who visit Sicily to get in contact with Etna Trekking Tours for a memorable and thrilling experience!
