The meeting point is easy to find and the tour guide Fabrizio gives a warm welcome to all participants. The jeep then takes you over impassable paths to a cave, then further up to the Valle di Bove and then to the lift station, where you can admire and hike through some craters. You learn a lot about Mount Etna and its history, development and vegetation. Fabrizio is an expert and you can ask him questions and he'll be happy to answer them. Time flies!

The tour was extremely enjoyable and beautiful. The Land Rover was a small attraction. With him we drove up to Etna, a lava cave and various craters. The tour guide is passionate about his job, was very personable and was able to tell us a lot about the formation of the volcano and the lava caves, the various eruptions in recent years, etc. The tour was worth it!

Our guide Fabrizio was very nice and interesting. We were the only strangers in the group and at every moment he took the time to translate what he said from Italian to English, to never let us apart from the group and misunderstanding. He was so sympatic and passionate about his beautiful region and its landscapes. We spent around 5 hours with him, it was a very good moment!
