Nino got us up there in good time, but at a pace that was manageable, and then got us the best spot for some fantastic photos while other groups clearly missed out. My one comment, echoing a previous review, is that we had to rely on two Italian members and their English and then my German to get some of... More

Good and professional operator of vulcano climbs. They also rent out the equipment you need. Bring warm clothes as it can get quite cold and windy at the top.

Guess which direction is up? bottled water in packs we do the donkey crawl following our guide and the veritable stream of devotees up the slope. The pace is regular as guides keep it to the...

This is a 5 star experience but (and I hesitate to 'complain') we relied on a fellow tourist to translate. Our guide was very attentive making sure we were okay and yes he didn't speak English and yes we don't speak much Italian, it did not detract from the experience of actually witnessing lava spouting from the earths core which...

We went with our 7 year old. The group had a number of children in it and the guide was very attentive to them. We had a wonderful time.

This is a must if you are fit enough. he views on the way up are brilliant. If you are blessed with a few explosions then you will never forget the experience. We had around 8 explosions. You don't have to be super fit because the guides take you are slowly but there is a lot of up hill. My... More

What a view and experience on the cheap. You depart and its 95 degrees, you summit and it's windy and 50. A crazy trip!

In the beginning they were kind of confused but going up they were very serious and on top of things. This is an activity for teenagers or senior fellows. Should not be missed!
