Good tour, guide came to pick us up from our hotel and spoke fluent English, itinerary as described on the site. The tasting was varied and enjoyable and the crater was magnificent. The tour car had broken down on the day we originally scheduled our tour which was disappointing as it disrupted our original trip plans but we were contacted with an offer to reschedule, so we went the following day.

Amazing experience! The tourist guide Giuseppe came to pick us up to our accommodation and we reached the Enoteca for the tasting and degustation of local products with Viviana, super expert and very nice girl ! We proceed exploring the volcano during the sunset and visited a cave created from the lava with Giuseppe, very well equipped and very informed. That was one of the best experience of my life !

The tour guide, in addition to being very educated on Etna, was immediately very kind and nice, making us feel almost among acquaintances. The tasting promotes many unique local products of their kind. Unique experience. Absolutely to try. Even the walk on Etna, a beautiful experience especially at sunset, but I recommend you bring sweatshirts because it could be really very cold! Great opportunity to make new friends too!
