What people are saying about Nicolosi

It was a very engaging adventure starting with Simone, the guide, super prepared in his work, kind and friendly. He got us involved in this guuda visit from the minute he came to pick us up until he took us back to the hotel we were staying at. Suuuper experience recommended for those who love to immerse themselves in the flavors of Catania and its nature

A good experience with a great guide. A small group of 8 makes for a more personal experience. Regardless of the weather and if you see the sunset or not, Etna is stunning and well worth the trip. The stop off at the honey Place was pleasant too, with no hard sell for any products.

Great! Nothing to complain about, we loved the tasting in a local family farm, the (short) hike to the crater to admire Mount Etna under the setting sun and the discovery of the lava cave. Everything was perfect

Matao our guide was absolutely brilliant and besides being very informative, he was fun to be with and looked after everyone in a very caring manner. Highly enjoyable trip, thank you Matao

It was an amazing excursion! The guide was very friendly, helpful and made us feel comfortable right away. Once in a lifetime experience!
