Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: We are in love with the volcano Etna! But, differently, we offer excursions more informal and engaging with outstanding itineraries.Our guides, professional and adept, will lead you to the discovery of the volcanological and ethnographic aspects of Etna, as well as its flora and fauna. A picnic of Sicilian flavors for a festive break accompanied by good local wine will also enable you to remember this day not just as a simple excursion but also as an experience brightened by colors and emotions. The collected feedback from all the B&Bs and Hotels have left us able to individualize suggestions, itineraries and qualified people able to transform the excursions around the volcano into an authentic experience.

“A wonderfull day at Etna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

We a Danish family group,11 people, ages from 12 to 73 went up the Nortsite of Etna 17 Oct. 2012 together an fantastic good guide Danilo. He seems that know everything about Etna and enjoyed his job so very much, he just talked and answered everything from 9 a clock in the morning until 18.30 when we said goodbye. The busdriver was also very friendly and the food was enjoyable.
Before we went on Etna I was a little vary about spending so much money on a full day tour but it was the worth!!! We would like that recommend such a full day tour.

“Staff really went the extra mile!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We we a little wary about spending 44 Euro per person for a half-day tour of Etna, but it turned out to be worth every cent! We were driving from Syracusa and were due to meet at Catania central railway station. Unfortunately we got lost in Catania and ended up at a different railway station. As time was tight, I called Etna Experience, and Vanessa was incredibly helpful in giving us directions, staying on the phone as we drove, and then calling us back twice to check we had made it to the next landmark. We met up with our guide Danilo and the rest of our group (a mix of nationalities). Danilo is a volcanologist who works part-time as a tour guide and, as such, was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about volcanoes. He had an endless series of anecdotes and information about Etna throughout our trip, during which we drove to the main car park, then trekked for about an hour, up and down, to one of Etna's craters. He then took us into a cave formed by a lava flow, equipping us first with hard hats and torches. Altogether, the tour lasted almost 6 hours, and included a picnic lunch of local snacks (pastries, rolls and small pizzas), wines and fruit juice. I would very strongly recommend this tour!

“I can't say enough good things about this company.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Starting with their help over the Internet to coordinate a trip for people with various arrivals to the departure at various stops this company was fantastic. Our guide Salvo wAs so knowledgeable and enjoyable that after our tour we all wanted to have him join us for the rest of our trip. The office staff, picnic lunch were all great. Whatever your desires. Call them and they will make this happen in regards to Mt. Etna

“Paolo the Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Me and my wife visited Etna on 5-th October 2012. Our guide Paolo was perfect guide I have seen in Italy. Our trip was vell wrap-up, the food - traditional sicilian, the wines - good samples of rose and, of course, nero d`avola.
We highly reccomend this attraction, because Monte Etna is a must on the island.
La Sicilia ha cuore che batte - quello di Etna e Paolo.
Auguri da Bulgaria!
