What people are saying about Monte Zoccolaro

This was really an off-the-road experience. The buggy was ready, perfectly functioning and completely safe. You are accompanied by a professional person who explains you how to drive and also something about the environment. You see the Etna environment from really very close. Pls note that the start and ending point is not in the city center of Catania, but a bit outside. A taxi ride costs 40 euro one-way. For me, after 4 hours driving, I had enough of the noise of the buggy.

It was an amazing experience !!!! During the event, while entering the volcano, we witnessed an explosion. We all had a great time and our Italian guides are super professional companions. I recommend the GET YOUR GUIDE website without any worries !!!

Brilliant excursion, which lasted a bit longer than expected for our enjoyment. Several stops on the volcano with the explanations that go with it. The guides were super nice. Great day we recommend.

Excellent tour, staff were helpful & explained us everything in detail. We loved the off-road part. It was so cool. A must try. Keep it up

Very nice experience to discover Etna in a different way!
