There are only positive things I can say about this experience. Paolo is a highly skilled tour guide who not only gave a detailed insight on the Etna and its surroundings but also took us on an unforgettable journey to witness the breathtaking sight of the Valle del Bove @ 2000m of altitude. We then visited a lava cave which was also very impressive! A delicious typical Sicilian lunch was also included with fresh bread and local cold cuts and cheese. We ended the tour with a visit to the mesmerizing Gole dell’ Alcantara. We truly recommend this tour! Thanks a lot Paolo!

We went on a half day guided tour of Etna with Paolo. It was an absolutley astonishing experience to reach a point 2,000m high shrouded in cloud which cleared in an instant to reveal the Valle del Bove and summit of the volcano. As well as a very able and considerate guide Paolo was a mine of information on Etna, it's history and environment. He not only clearly communicated this information, what was also clear was his love of and joy in Etna and it's environment which was infectious. We highly recommend a tour of Etna. Thank you Paolo.

We (2 Germans, 54 & 56 yrs.) booked a full day Etna tour with Paolo in early March 2019. The Etna was still emitting toxic gases after the last eruption in December and so It was not possible to climb up higher than about 2.200 meters. Nevertheless, Paolo led us to spots of amazing beauty and spectacular scenery: the colossal lava fields of the "valle del bove", an icicled lava grotto, the mystical forest of endemic birchs (Betula aetnensis), the black (lava) & white (snow) mosaic of the Etna north slope,... What, however, made the whole trip even more unforgettable was Paolo's infectious enthusiasm for the beauty of the mountain paired with his deep knowledge of its geology, biology and history. We learned a lot from him, not only about the Etna but also about Sicily in general. And, at the same time, we had so much fun together and were laughing a lot due to his humorous and charming nature. It was a very intense and most enjoyable day. Unforgettable! Thanks a lot, Paolo!...(Side note: A special picnic at a very particular place was also included as well as the transfer from and to our B&B.)

First of all: if you still think about whether or not to book the tour - just do it, it's great! Our guide was Paolo and he told us a lot of interesting things about the Etna. Besides, he was very nice and fun to chat with! The picnic area was unique and the food was delicious and definitely enough even for very hungry people like us ;) Overall the tour was even better than expected and perfectly adapted to our needs.
