We had a wonderful time on this tour! Our guide Alessandro was fantastic and made the experience lots of fun - he arrived perfectly on time to pick us up from where we were staying, and kept us informed and entertained throughout with lots of interesting information about Mount Etna. We really enjoyed the stop-off to taste some local food and wine, and the sunset view was stunning. The walk was short and very manageable, but make sure to take some layers as it was cold at the top. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone!

Fantastic guide, also excellent tasting and then obviously the experience of enjoying the sunset on one of the craters of Etna is beautiful ..

Amazing tour. Had an awesome time and learned so much. Super friendly people and would highly recommend to anyone thinking about doing it.

It was a very informative tour with a great food/wine tasting afterwards. Our guide (Dan) was personable and made us feel at our ease.

Thanks to Angelo for this magnificent visit of Etna! Very nice and attentive!
