We stood at the bus stop waiting for are lift in temperatures over 32c, not knowing that in 2 hours, we would be freezing in the ice cold winds of Etna. Apart from the cold, the whole experience was amazing. It is very important that you wear warm clothing or hire jackets (€4) from the shop. Also wear sensible shoes. Our guide was knowledgable and constantly checking everyone was safe. We were taken near the summit (over 2000m) by jeep/bus and walked round one of the many craters. In my opinion, the barren landscape was more interesting than the sunset, however it all added to the adventure. The evening ending with a meal which wasn't great.
We did make a stop at a place that made honey before going onto Etna. We were allowed to sample the honey, wines and oils sold at this establishment. There was no hard sale and everyone in our party enjoyed this stop off.
The trip to and from Etna was in a small minibus which was comfortable with air conditioning and our guide was very entertaining. We arrived back in Taormina around midnight.

Etna is a beautiful place, and being able to walk across the landscape, take in the views, and experience the sunset there is a special experience. Our guide did a good job, and even went out of his way to help a fellow traveler who had some issues with heights. Very kind. It is quite cold on Etna, so be sure to bundle up - certainly wear pants and more than a windbreaker. The restaurant at the bottom was quite good, better than I expected, with tasty pizza and an extensive local craft beer selection.

We’ve booked this tour just 24 hours in advance and the booking website confirmed the booking with outdated departure times which made us miss the bus. However, SAT Group was amazingly helpful and went the extra mile so that we could still join the group. A big shout out to Giovanna! The tour was great, we had a very lively and knowledgeable tour guide. The dinner was tasty too. Overall an amazing experience to be on top of Mt. Etna for sunset. It was extremely windy and cold though, don’t forget your warm clothing!

A waste of money. We paid 130 euros each and the weather was appalling. Most of us never got out of the 'jeep' ( it isn't really a jeep..more of an eight-wheeled coach thingy). What's more we had to hire jackets at 4 euros each and the so-called 'Sicilian meal' in the restaurant was particularly poor...no choice (but fine if you like veal cutlets.

My advice would be to not book until the day you are going on the trip and absolutely double-check the weather first

Hello northamptonoldby, we recognize you, you are the same customer that has been refunded with the 50% of the total amount after receiving the following letter from our Customer Care Manager. We do believe that it is not fair to receive the 50% refund for the weather conditions that you could have checked before leaving and then write this awful review. This is the mail you have received from our company: "First of all, we are profusely sorry for the discomfort suffered by you and your partner and for not having enjoyed your experience during the excursion Etna Sunset with SAT Group on 14th of June. Reading your comment we understand that your complain is about above all the weather conditions on Mount Etna and not about the company's organization. As a matter of fact, we go to Mount Etna every single day with our excursions and the operability of the tour is carried out by the Alpine Guide company which is responsible and decide about the feasibility of the last part of the tour basing on wind/weather conditions. Many times it can happen that we leave Taormina with dark clouds and then we overcome them and find sun at the summit of Mount Etna. So it is very unpredictable. Weather changes very easily especially in some time of the year, but in any case, Alpine Guides decide when to cancel or not. They have a certain parameter that has been used for decades and we, as their partners, trust that. Of course, customers are welcomed to cancel with full refund or switch to another day when they check the forecast and are not convinced 100% about finding perfect weather up there. Regarding the warning about the suitable clothing to wear, that is well described on the Important Info on the product's schedule and it is also well stated that rental of wind jackets and boots is possible with an extra. That is stated twice on the tour's schedule and on the voucher as well. It is quite predictable to find cold and possibly wind at 3000 mts during the evening. Regarding the restaurant, we are so sorry to read that the you found the food of poor quality. We can guarantee about the genuineness and freshness of the ingredients, but, of course, we recognize that it is a simple place with a homy and rustic mood as all the restaurants on Mount Etna, we are sorry that you did not find the level satisfactory. Said all that, as we absolutely care about the satisfaction of our customers, we are willing to offer a 50% refund of the total amount paid, considering that the service has been fully carried out and that we have high technical costs on this tour. We hope that this will compensate your discomfort and we still hope to have the possibility to welcome you again on top of Mount Etna for a positive experience. We thank you very much for sending the feedback as SAT Group is very involved in Customer Care and is taking all clients’ comments in high consideration using them always as an occasion of improvement." We did our best, but the customer did not think twice to post this terrible review. We hope that we have the possibility to show our customers oriented policy in this matter. All the best.

The tour guide was amazing and very friendly. The tour was exactly as the company explained and the sunset views are incredible! They have many different pick up points so that's a plus! Maybe just bring a face mask in case the wind is blowing your way because it's quite ashy up there and it will make you cough but that is obviously up to you.

We booked two tours through SAT while we were in Taormina. Frederico was incredibly helpful and supportive in providing guidance and accommodating our needs. The opportunity to be on Mount Etna was amazing. Our guide was knowledgeable and answered questions. I highly recommend SAT and their staff. Frederico worked very hard to ensure we had an enjoyable experience and we appreciate his flexibility.
