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.

I am an american woman who took three teens out today and was slightly worried about the language barrier and safety issues. We learned so much and enjoyed every minute. Highly recommend this tour. Thank you!

All what I knew before that North and South slopes are very different, so it is necessary to see both of them. I choosed Classic Etna Tour for the North slopes with Etna Experience. This was a perfect day with a perfect guide, Paulo. He holds a degree in natural sciences, so there wasn't a single grass he wouldn't know in addition to his familiarity with volcanos and Etna herself. He transferred his knowledge in an unnoticeable way with humor, without feeling any information overload. The trekking was easy but involving enough to feel the power of the nature. He spotted also when somebody was puffing behind him and stopped, again, in an unnoticable way. In these instances he found something to show and explained in 2 minutes which was precisely enough to continue our little walks uphill. We saw the life too on Etna, not just what she destroyed. Smells, sounds were part of our everlasting experience. The restaurant where we had the lunch catered only 2 groups and was lurking in a place you wouldn't think there would be anything. The food and the wine were also pleasent. Thanks Paulo very, very much!

We took the classic Etna tour, 9am - 6:30pm. It was absolutely fantastic and I have to give extra credit to Danilo, our guide. He was really passionate about the volcano and that passion transferred to us. He explained a lot and showed us how Etna was born, evolved and what happened in the surroundings.
And the lunch we had in a small cute restaurant in the middle of nowhere was fantastic!
Overall we really loved the day.

As 4 friends we booked the Etna&Wine Tour, as there were no other participants, it was just 4 of us and our guide Ezio in a jeep. We went up to Mt. Etna, went off-road, enjoyed great views, went hiking for couple hours on volcanic sand&rocks and after that we stopped at the winery. I strongly recommend that you take Etna&Wine tour if you have any interest on wines and/or food, you won't regret. The people at the wine tasting explain you everything about their wines and serve you generously. After wine tasting we went to a Beekeepers place(i am not sure if that's included in the ordinary tour) there we saw some crazy animals(i am not talking about bees :) ) and tasted different kinds of honey. Ezio is a great guy, we are very glad that we had him as our tour guide and we had an amazing day.
