Booking was easy. We found it a bit annoying that - after a digital booking - you had to exchange the voucher for a ticket. What really annoyed us: The voucher said that the tour starts at 4.30 p.m. and that we have to be there half an hour in advance to exchange said voucher. At 4 p.m. we found that the office didn't even open until 4.30 p.m. After no one was there at 4.30 p.m., we called. Then one of the employees came on the bike and said quite easily that the tour would not start until 5.30 p.m. or a little later, so we still had all the time in the world. We weren't the only ones who felt this way. When we asked why we were called to a closed office an hour early, the employee simply said: The computer sometimes does crazy things. We would have had the time - in the end, almost an hour and a half were happily used other than sitting on the wall, waiting.
It was truly amazing! The pace of the hike is very very affordable since the guide adapts to the group which sometimes includes a few neophytes in the field (not even out of breath when arriving at the top) the landscapes and the comments ... the arrival at 400m, which is the altitude maximum authorized, at dusk, and the eruptions which follow one another are the icing on the cake and a very big icing! I advise you to book at the observatory (on the way back to the village) you will taste excellent pizza in front of the spectacle of the eruptions which continue! But tell the guide… Thanks to Michele who was at the top
I recommend this excursion that offers unique scenarios, for true nature lovers, sunsets, volcanic explosions (today spectacular!) In short, everything is perfect, professional, kind and prepared guide.
Great time, great guide, thank you Marco! To do, for the effort and for the eruptions! Departure at 6 p.m. much better than at 5.30 p.m. with its heat!
The activity was perfect and superbly well supervised. Excellent day thanks to this excursion.
