Claudio spent 4 hours with us on Mount Etna. He gave us an outstanding and unforgettable Tour during which he explained to us the history, geology, vulcanology, biology and many other aspects of this impressive active volcano. Heat holes, edible plants, lunch in a thermally heated crater, weather changes, amazing views, inspiring walks and Claudio‘s warm manner of answering each and every questions turned the tour into a real highlight. Because of EtnaWay and Claudio we will definitely come back to see more of Monte Etna. With Claudio. Grazie mille. Herzlichen Dank. Markus, Bärbel, Charlotte, Robert

It was the second time hiking Mount Etna, but Claudio was able to show and explain us more then we experienced the first time with another tour operator. We enjoyed Claudio's ability to not only talk in perfect german, but also to explain the wonders of Etna in an easy way. We liked his jokes and he stayed cool although he had a busy day organizing his company by phone meanwhile because of some employees were not available. so next time visiting Etna area, we will for sure call Claudio again because we know, hiking with him is safe and he did not guide us to dangerous areas (where other unguided tourists just went!!). Thank you Claudio, see you soon and ciao!

Review of: Etna Alcantara
Hello, We had an amazing and very informative day. Our guide provided us with everything we needed or wanted to know. From trekking shoes to details of the happening on and around etna. He was very attentive to our needs and happy to linger longer in some places to make photos or go into detail if you had questions. The tour was provided in fluent german, spiked with anecdotes of past trips here and there as we got to enjoy the beautiful scenery. In the morning we were picked up at our airbnb stay, then had an informative ride to etna where we got some general information about etna, the area and latest eruptions. We trekked around different craters and through a beautiful mountain side with birch trees. We then continued on to the destroyed tourist site, seeing the extend of force nature could bring with the eruption of a volcano. For lunch we rested at a nice little restaurant, enjoying local food qith cool drinks before exploring a lava tunnle. We ended our day when we hot to the Alcantara site, where we cooled down in the icy water a bit before being brought home. All in all it was probably the best decision we could have made. I looked through several tourist guides, but nearly all of them had costs hidden somewhere and you had to explicitly ask to know about them. Etnaway was straightforward about any costs, easy to contact, honest, informative and a pleasure to spend a day with. If I ever come back to catania and do another tour to etna, I won't have to search long because I know where to go this time. Hope to see you again in the future Marisa, Milena and Gabriel

We had an unforgettable experience trekking at Etna volcano thanks to Claudio! We booked a private tour with him and had a wonderful day thanks to (and with) him. He explained us everything, answered all our questions, took photos for us and was super nice, caring and fun! Claudio is fluent in German which was very convenient for us. Beforehand, he was easily available to have a quick call or Whatsapp chat - super easy to organize and plan. If you want to have an individual experience unlike all the touristic, standard stuff: do not hesitate to book here. PS: We were a group of 3 fit friends around 30 years old. But since Claudio is flexible to your belongings, just contact him and find out what suits best for your condition and wishes.
