    Mount Etna
    Stop: 5 hours
    Ready for a completely different kind of off-road Jeep tour adventure? Discover one of the most active volcanoes in the world with our Etna Jeep Tour. We will pick you up at your accommodation with one of our off-road vehicles (including the popular Land Rover 110) and heading in the direction of the volcano. We are passing idyllic Sicilian villages and some of Sicily’s most famous wine-growing regions and whilst gaining altitude, you will learn a lot about the country, the population and their culture. You will certainly remember the impressive play of colours of the black lava and the extraordinary vegetation on Mount Etna. As we pass by the lava flows of recent years, we will see centuries-old forests and we will stop at some of the most beautiful places on Mount Etna. During an easy hike of approx. 45 min. on the craters in the surrounding, you will see the unique landscape with the old and new lava. Of course, a competent English-speaking guide will accompany you during this guided trip on Mount Etna and you will learn a lot about the history of the volcano with its myths and the current situation there. You will continue the adventurous jeep tour on an off-road track through the pine forests and you will get further insight into the unique and diverse flora and fauna which inhabits the lava rocks. Like the speleologists, you will be equipped with helmets and flashlights to explore one of the famous lava caves on foot with your guide. These caves were created by a lava flow and they still have special properties. Centuries ago, residents close to Mount Etna used these caves for the ice production. As the last stop of the half-day tour we will drive to the hardened lava flows, which destroyed the local ski lift during the last big eruption.

Picked up from our villa on time. Vehicle was clean. The guide spoke very good English, was very knowledgeable and drove well (unlike most other drivers on this island). Small group of 5 which meant we were not rushed and our guide gave us plenty of time explaining things at each stop. Food at the end of the half day tour was good and not too expensive. The views were amazing
If you come to Sicily- it’s a must do!

If you have even a slight interest in visiting Mt. Etna, book this tour. You will not regret it.

Our driver, Sergei, picked us up at our B&B in Taormina and after taking us to a central meeting point between Taormina and Catania to meet the other groups on the tour, we were off to Mt. Etna. The first stop is at the end of a lava flow, where our guide Gianpaolo provided some history about the volcano and explained how Mt. Etna is unique in many ways compared to other volcanoes. The second stop was at some lava tubes which we were able to climb down into and walk through, which was interesting and unique. The third stop was a hike up to a number of (now closed) craters, with an amazing view of both the peak and the surrounding territory, including Calabria across the strait. At each stop Gianpaolo provided interesting (and often funny) commentary about the various elements we were seeing. Finally, we stopped at a restaurant/bar at mid-mountain for food, refreshments, and a break before heading back down the mountain.

The entire Go-Etna team was friendly, organized, and professional, and they are what took an amazing tour to begin with and put it over the top. In particular I must call out our driver, Sergei, who is an excellent driver and who really went the extra mile to make our last day in Sicily special by showing us a few extra things. Also, Sergei speaks fluent Italian and Russian but little English, and I speak English and Russian but little Italian, so given our one language in common we talked and joked in Russian the entire day, which was entirely unexpected, but made an amazing trip even more unforgettable. Thank you Sergei, Gianpaolo, and the entire Go-Etna team for such a wonderful day.

Visiting Etna’s north side is a great experience itself, but this team of guides only made it better. Marco was our english guide and was explaining everything in an interesting way, sharing his own experience as well. Our driver, I can’t remember the name, apart from being native italian, spoke fluent english and german and kept flipping between languages when giving us insights of what surrounds us.

We do not recommend this tour. We were 4 young (20-30y) people who booked this experience to have the opportunity to see Etna with a jeep and we expected a fun and bumpy ride.

Unfortunately, we were put in an 8 person minivan (old mercedes caddy) with a not so strong English guide. They did not put is in a van where we could be in a group, instead we had one person of our group alone all the tour. Instead of the fun and bumpy ride we were expecting we got a boring and A/C field city tour like.

To be very realistic, you go at 30km/h in a line of 10 cars, in a regular road, as if you were driving up to a mountain yourself. The tour was with about 50 people in total. The off-road experience we had lasted for less than 1 km, or about 5 min.

When we explained our views at the beginning of the tour, the guides did not find any solution and asked us to make this review online because their management does not listen to them.

As people who work on customer service as well, we found this experience to be extremely disappointing.

We have reached out to them directly before making this review however we got no response.

Better luck next time.

I went with my wife and kids on the Etna Half Day 4x4 Excursion. Etna is an amazing place to visit. They picked a couple very cool places to see. The driver was very nice. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very nice. Unfortunately they do not actually do what they claim:
1) The website says "always accompanied by an English-speaking guide". In fact, we had an English-speaking guide when we stopped but the driver (who you spend about half the time with) did not speak English.
2) The website says repeatedly that the trip is a "Jeep Tour", "4x4", "adventurous jeep tour on an off-road track", etc. While we were in a Toyota Land Cruiser (or something similar), we were on pavement the vast majority of the time and never drove on anything that I haven't driven my Toyota Yaris on in Sicily.
3) The website says "Body temperature check before departure". This did not happen.

In short, save your money, rent a car for the day and go see all these free sites yourself. The primary places we saw were "Grotta della neve" and "Monti sartorius". The view driving up around on the mountain is beautiful!

I read reviews of this trip and was really excited to experience it. Unfortunately, this is not "off-road Jeep tour adventure" - if you are counting on the off road, like I did, you will be disappointed. We were riding a bus, and the only off road was a quick ride through the wood. Most of the trip is just sitting in the bus, which was simply boring. Hiking was great with amazing views, but it was really quick. Guides are very good, a lot of interesting things were shared, but sorry, it's not enough.

Really disappointed.
Picked up from our hotel in a 20 year old Nissan 4x4 and taken to a meeting point at a petrol station for a toilet and coffee stop - strange start? Then onward with a convoy of 6 other vehicles eventually stopping for a lesson in volcanoes at the side of a track for 30 minutes or so - too long.
Next stop at some lava caves, not really interesting and in my view a waste of time, lots of info provided but took too long.
Eventually off to another parking stop and then walked up to a couple of craters for an hour.
Overall 6 hours with just 1 hour of something interesting - not my view of value for money, disappointed and not meeting expectations seen in the website.

Super helpful and friendly guides- We were pricked up at our hotel by Andrea, who was great all day long.
The English speaking guide for the hike and cave park was really good at explaining everything and let everyone know not to rush.

One thing I would say about the easy hike, is that it might not be quite as easy at you would expect. Imagine waking uphill in dry sand- that’s what the hike is like a lot of the time. So I wouldn’t recommend it for elderly people or people with knee or ankle problems.

But all in all - a really great day on Etna 🌋

We had Andrea as our driver and he made the experience fantastic! He walked us around all the stops (even though it wasn’t his job) and he told us about a lot of things when we were driving. He picked us up on time and drove us all the way home again. The 5 stars is because of him. My group think the guide talked way too much, it ruined the experience a bit.
All in all it was an amazing tour and we saw a lot of different things, would definitely recommend taking this tour!!!

I booked the trip very late and without doing a lot of previous research. We were bracing for a medium experience and I have to say we were very positively surprised with a great day. The tour was excellent, well organized and the guides were brilliant. I would like to extend my thank you to the guide Antonio (driving the 4x4), who was very nice, knowledgeable and went the extra mile to make our experience great. Would definitely recommend.
