We enjoyed this trip so much last year we booked again on our return to Taormina.
Eddy is best contacted by email on Legendary Sicily's website as he is usually out on trips - he responds promptly and all arrangements for time, pick-up etc can be made.
This time there were just 2 4x4s for a small group of 8. We had an amazing day, starting with the short walk on the Valle del Bove, where Eddy gave us so much interesting information about the history + geology of Etna.
We then did a 2 hour trek from Piano Provenzana around the craters from the 2002 eruption. This was great for us as it was a different trek from last year - and even better! Luckily it was a beautiful day with amazing views. Before lunch at the mountain refuge we experienced one of the lava tunnels and learned about their use as ice storage facilities!
After a lovely meal we drove to the Alcantara river and walked down to the bottom of the gorge, both of which are areas of great natural beauty.
Eddy is a fount of knowledge and always responds with enthusiasm to questions, often in great detail in several languages. He communicates his love of the area with great passion. The day's itinerary can be varied according to weather conditions, which means hopefully the group gains the best experience of each place visited.
If you want to experience Etna in a small group away from the crowds and with a personal touch, then go with one of Eddy's trips - you won't be disappointed!
Thanks again Eddy!
