Our guide Giuseppe picked us up for the Etna tour about 20 minutes late and dropped us an hour early at 5:30pm, instead of 6:30 as is advertised. When he picked us up he didn't ask anyone's name or talk until we prompted to tell us something about the volcano. Touring around the volcano was interesting though you only go to 2100 feet, not even close to the top. Giuseppe was very informed about the volcanco as he had studied vulcanology.
Essentially, you are touring old craters and very tiny lave cave (maybe 20-30 meters long). We were excited about Alcantarra canyon, but Giuseppe did warn us it might rain there. When we pulled up it did start to rain - we didn't wait around but left immediately, leaving the afternoon as mainly driving for 2 or 3 hours with no sites other than the tunnel.
We did not find it worth nearly 70 euros. Lunch was included, but consisted of two types of fairly cheap pasta, one piece of bruschetta and a bit of wine - maybe 7 euros in value. It is hard with these Etna tours since they are not allowed to the top anymore it makes me question whether any of them are worth it.
