I could not have been more pleased with everything about this trip with This is Etna !!! Johnny s strong knowledge especially of history, vulcanology and general facts, gave us greater insight into his beautiful island of Sicily !!! He is such a super cool guy, very friendly, fun and open minded . He let us see unique things that we may have otherwise missed ! Thank you very much Johnny !!!

We spent over half a day with our guide Johnny visiting Mount Etna as he talked us through the history, geology and social aspects of Etna with such great passion ! The tour was in a Land Rover, meaning it was easy to drive up towards the volcano, and Johnny took us to amazing locations including a couple of food breaks :) We walked quite high up and it was fascinating to be able to see the craters - our teenage daughters loved the day too. Be sure to take some sunscreen with you if you go on a sunny day !

We got picked up at the hotel, went on 4WD off road drive. Learned about the volcano, Mt Etna, it's history and how it affected the beautiful countryside of Sicily. We went down into caves and learned about the plants and trees. It was a wonderful day trekking, and enjoying the nature around us. This is the only way to see the real beauty, and understand this amazing place. Be ready to hike!!!

Me and my friends had a great day with Johnny. He picked us up from the hotel and drove us around in his 4WD all day. We drove up to mount Etna and climbed further to the top. We learned a lot about the ‘mama’ and enjoyed the scenery. She is beautiful! Furthermore the guide is very knowledgeable and great fun! After getting dirty while walking down we deserved a break.. so great timing for a wine tasting in a vinyard with some great food. We were so lucky that Johnny turns out to be a sommelier too!! After lunch we took a swim in a river in a beautiful gorge..so refreshing! Next time when we visit Sicily we will definitely contact Johnny again for the full day Etna hike all the way to the top at 3000m. We highly recommend ‘This is Etna’!

Amazing, wonderful, informative, lively tour with Johnny. My family had a great day, learned a lot, and had helpful accommodations for those of us with mobility concerns. Johnny was great fun, full of laughter and great ideas. If you want an informative day, great chance to learn, and also have lots of fun - contact Johnny and book a tour. Susan and her family
