As first-time visitors to Catania we made a visit to Mt Etna our top prioriity. We could not have made a better choice than EtnaTribe. Our tour guide Haithem was dedicated to giving us the best day possible, with excellent local knowledge and insights into the Catanian way of life. Our visit to Zafferana coincided with a local festival with intense traffic and closed roads. Haithem handled this unexpected challenge very calmly and professionally and managed to get us to our wine and honey tasting visit without any problems at all. We highly recommend taking the cable-car and 4x4 bus to the top, well worth the extra cost to get so close to the volcanic action. Warm clothes recommended for this, since the temperature dropped to zero degrees with the wind chill factor in mid-October. This was a great day we'll always remember.

This was a fascinating excursion from Catania to Mount Etna, exploring craters and lava caves with a fabulous guide (Caterina) who shared her wide knowledge of Mount Etna, the surrounding area and volcanoes in general with contagious enthusiasm. The organisation of the trip was very professional, the atmosphere really friendly and the group was small enough for individual interests to be followed. Very highly recommended. Bring sensible footwear and a jacket if you choose to take the cable car to the upper levels.

Tour was very well run and professional. Lots of interesting insights throughout the day. Very flexible schedule. For the adventourous, go all the way to the top of Etna, if you're not into cable cars, you have the option to explore the lower level crators. The lava cave in the afternoon is fascinating too. The transport was good quality. Plenty of access to rice balls throughout the day too! Good day out.

This trip was awesome. The guides were wonderful. Completely trilingual. Very knowlegdable about all parts of the tour, the area and the city. Etna is a must see and Etna Tribe are the perfect tour group to do it. The group size is not too large and our guide (Caterina) made a point of taking time to speak to all of us. Highly recommend this tour. Bring your boots!
