      Excellent Tour
      We really enjoyed this trip despite an “incident” which was entirely my fault and our guide (Regi) dealt with very well. We headed off and at the first stop at a lava field, I managed to catch my foot on a rock and do a dramatic face plant. Lots of cuts and bruises and a knee that wouldn’t stop bleeding. They sorted me out as best they could using the first aid kit in the vehicle. The next stop was tasting local food and wine. Regi left the rest of the group there and took me down to a local medical centre to get my knee dressed and cleaned up properly. After that, we just continued the tour as usual and Regi was on hand if I needed support getting in and out of the vehicle. Our tour was entirely in English although we had an Italian couple with us. Regi was very knowledgable and interesting, and made the tour very enjoyable. The scenery up at the craters is stunning, it’s just a shame it was overcast so not much of a sunset but that’s nature for you. Following my accident, I felt that they looked after me as well as they could have done and he even dropped us back at our apartment at the end of the trip rather than back at the pick up point, so I didn’t have to hobble back. I would definitely recommend.

      Highly Recommend, fantastic!
      What a fantastic trip. Luca, our guide, was excellent. He was knowledgeable, interesting and obviously enjoyed showing us an area that he loves. Pick up was from our hotel, we stopped along the way to look and take photos. We had a coffee at 2000 feet and then wine, olive and honey tasting. Luca was happy to answer our questions and we learnt loads about Etna, Sicily and of the mafia! Thanks Luca for a wonderful time. Hopefully you’ll get to ‘drift’ one day x

      Catania Jeep Tour - Do It!
      Small group, comfortable ride and good conversation with the guide and others on the tour. Hike was more difficult than expected because of wind but totally doable. Wear layers and expect some amazing views.

      Absolutely Brilliant!!
      Absolutely brilliant trip. Luca went above and beyond with our trip. Took us to some other great views out the tour track and was very informative and a great guy in general with a great look on life and his ambitions. Really made the trip worthwhile and made sure everyone was safely home afterwards. Wish I could give him 10 Stars!!

      Great
      Well organised. Small group so plenty of times to ask questions. A great way to see Etna. Had the chance to learn about flora of the area as well as getting close to craters on the lower slopes. Visit to lava cave was also excellent.

      Excellent company to visit Etna with
      Great way to visit Etna and learn about its history. Guides were knowledgeable and made the day fun. The "honey visit" on the way back was a bonus! Would recommend this company and wished we had more time in Catania as we would have booked another trip with them.

      Etna sunset jeep tour
      Our driver picked us up in his Pajero SUV. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We had multiple opportunities to take great pictures. Enjoyed seeing the volcano cave. Clouds moving in provided ominous photos over the craters. Beautiful wildflowers in bloom for our visit.

      Unforgettable expirience: good for teenies and adoults
      Amazing guides provided us with all the profound information about Etna and the region. Unforgettable hiking on top of some of the dormant volcanos. The wine and honey testig was great - I never thought, that honey could be made in so many combinations with fruits and herbs. All local products with the flavor of Etna.

      Aetna Tour
      Our guide, Giovanni, was excellent...the trip was much fun and informative....don't ever try this without using a guide and this tour worked best for us....price , time and it came recommended from a couple we had met 48 hours before who had done this tour the day before. One complaint...the meeting point is a bit hard to find and confusing....don't ask anyone in the Rent Catania office anything...they're world class jerks!

    Wir waren zum ersten Mal tauchen, Andrea hat alles super erklärt, dann gab es Übungen im flachen Wasser bevor es dann ins tiefere Wasser ging. Er hat sich immer versichert, dass alles ok ist bevor wir tiefer gingen. Insgesamt waren wir fast 9m tief, fürs erste Mal wirklich ein tolles Erlebnis.
    Am Ende gab es noch eine kleine Bootstour entlang der Küste
    Vielen Dank dafür

    Fue sensacional, pese al respeto y el miedo de ser la primera vez, gracias a la profesionalidad de Andrea y su equipo y a su esperiencia, nos dio la seguridad y la información necesaria para disfrutar al máximo de la actividad, creo que no habría sido lo mismo sin ellos y su precioso barco tradicional, gracias de corazón.
