“Etna tour with Andrea not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Andrea picked us up exactly on time and gave us far more than we expected, including key concepts and history of not only the spectacular volcano but the culture of the island and other fascinating info. Best of all, he was a great guy, very friendly and humorous. Highly recommend this tour, and especially with him. Also, he speaks virtually perfect English and French besides Italian.

“100% guaranteed fun tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

I was left abandoned by another tour company the evening before an etna tour, and was desperate to find another one at 19h. thanks to a very efficient Vagabonda on the trip advisor forum I discovered the Etna sicily touring association, and within the hour I had a day trip organised for 8.30am the next day. Etna Sicily Touring go every day regardless of if there is only 1 client so you are certain to go, but not only that, have an extremely fun day if your guide is Paolo! there were 4 of us and from pick-up at my B&B until 17h we had a very interesting tour - paolo knows everything you want to know about the etna area, and although we were in thick clouds (and didn't see much of the actual volcano) we went 200mts inside a volcano cave, walked around the rim of a small crater, visited the gorges and had detailed descriptions of the different lava flows. even saw the top of a house that had been covered with lava during an eruption. this was accompanied by a very humorous paolo who made the day fun, so thanks to paolo and vagabonda my day was a great success and to be highly recommended!

“Hilite of our trip in Sicily”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We spent a great day with Paolo driving around Catania and Etna hills.
Everything was just above expectations. Well done.
Paolo organised the best lunch I had in Italy. Great restaurant, staff trying to impress us, best pasta I ever had -)
I wish we had more tours like this.

Cheers

“Paolo - very informative guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We are a group of 6 on a cruise. We had a great full day tour- fish & produce market, four wheel driving experience, cave exploration and of course Mt. Etna. This was topped off by a wonderful Sicilian lunch and his lovely wife joined us. A wonderful day of unusual, off the beaten track experiences..

“Wonderul way to see "The Lady"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

My wife and I were part of a group of six that went on a day tour with Etna Sicily Touring off our cruise ship. After seeing the people from the ship piling into busses to ride up Mt. Etna we were very happy to have booked this four-wheel drive tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and loved sharing information on "The Lady" (as the Sicilians refer to Mt. Etna) and the island of Sicily as well. And I have no doubt that the people on the busses never got the chance to climb down into a couple of caves as we did. Our included lunch was far more than any of us could eat but wonderful none the less. Even when our vehicle broke down toward the end of the tour on the outskirts of Taorimina another vehicle was sent to pick us up and return us to our ship in plenty of time. I can
t think of a better way to really SEE Etna and that part of Sicily than with Etna Sicily Touring.
