Incredible experience, the Etna is an amazing place to visit. As said, it's an easy tour, we may I prefer more trekking time (the total walking time is about two hours, in two times). But the views were incredible from there, both of the Etna and the Sicily panorama. Our guide, Andrea, a young biologist, was very friendly and could answer all our questions about the Etna. Thanks again !

This trip was through Etna People from Taormina. It was our second trip with them and was as amazing as the first.

Daniele was our guide this time. It was a small minibus trip with 8 people.

We really appreciated Daniele's talk on the way to Etna. He told us about the history of Etna and it's various eruptions and the impact on the people living there (he grew up in an Etna village).

The trip was very comprehensive. We first visited a lava tube so that Daniele could explain about types of Volcanoes, how the lava moved and the structures left behind. We then got into a monster truck for a drive all the way up to the observatory at the top (2950m). We saw craters from several old and more recent eruptions and could clearly see the steaming main crater at the top. Lots of great photo opportunities! As we progressed Daniele pointed out the different ages of lava flows and also described the hour by hour impact of the 2002 eruption and how it wiped out hotels and restaurants near the top.

We had a delicious lunch at a local winery (vegans well catered for). We tried 2 wines plus almond wine with desert.

We finished with a river walk at Alcantara gorge with its basalt columns (and 'refreshing' water).

Another great day. Big thanks to Daniele and Etna People for making it special.

We did the etna and Taormina tour with wine tasting. Our guide Giovanni was excellent! Very knowledgable about Etna! He spoke 3 languages including English and French. The hike was not very difficult. The food at the vineyard was good. It gets windy and is cold on the tour but hiking boots and jackets were provided. Ask for Giovanni he was excellent!

So we went to visit Etna with Teresa Valvo as a guide. I must say, it was really interesting to see the volcano and it was very fun to have Teresa as a guide. She is a very kind hearted, cheerful and daring person. We were taught some Sicilian phrases and words and had a snowball war on Etna. Later we had a picnic, visited another crater and a cave with romantic story behind it. I’d like to point out, that it would be impossible to make that trip on your own in one day, so I do recommend to get help from Etna Experience. And in addition, ask for Teresa to add some extra fun to your trip ;)

It was perfect. The guide was extremely nice and very knowledgeable, and made sure my mother of 68 was able to see the top of the mountain as well.

About the mountain - if you are in the area and able to, you must see it!

We had a wonderful day with Janet from Etna Top Easy. We were with a couple and their 2 children. We get the proof the trekking is achievable by everyone no matter your age. Janet was amazing, thanks to her we’ve discovered, learned and saw so much things about volcanos and she brought sicilian food to us for the lunch. We’re happy to taste them for the first time. Thanks again for this unforgettable day Janet !

Originally we planned on having the Summit Strong tour, unfortunately due to the current Vulcanic activity we weren't able to ascend that far (though that's nothing which Etna experience can influence) Despite that we had a really nice day, Janet knows literally everything about volcanoes, so hiking through the amazing landscape and getting to know all the information right on the spot was excellent. If I'd do it again, I would probably opt for skipping the (ludicrous expensive) cable car all together and focus more on the hike, which would then be very challenging but right trough the amazing landscape.
