We booked a tour via Continente Sicilia as we were staying at the B&B Davide also owns in Taormina and he had mentioned in an email that they also did tours!
We booked a full day Etna Summit Craters excursion with which was fantastic. Davide was a fantastic guide, super passionate about Sicily and especially Etna. We thought it was excellant value and included a lovely packed lunch, freshly made sandwiches and fruit which we picked up on route! It was really amazing to see Etna close up and we are really glad we went with Davide as he gave us lots of information about the Volcano, eruptions and natural environment.
Davide will tailor the tour to whatever you want to do, which I didn't realise when booking, I happened to mention on the way up that I would have loved to do more walking on Etna so instead of taking the big truck back down from the craters Davide took us on a walk for a couple of hours showing us some amazing view points over the Valle De Bove. We also visited a lava cave and on the way back stopped off for a quick look at the Alcantara Gorge (which wasn't supposed to be part of our trip, we had mentioned we would quite like to go visit it the following day and asked Davide about public transport), and he made a fairly big detour on the way back so we could see it!
Visiting Etna was definitely one of the highlights of our trip and we were really glad we went with Davide and Continente Sicilia as we learned so much! I would definitely book with Continente Sicilia again and would highly recommend them to family and friends!!
