What people are saying about Sicily

The trip was excellent and exceeded our expectations. Our guide Gianfranco picked us up at our hotel right on schedule and stopped at several great viewing locations on the way to and from Mt. Etna. He was very knowledgeable about Mt. Etna and also gave us a lot of great information about Sicily and other things to see and do in the area. I would highly recommend this excursion and Gianfranco as a guide.

Brilliant way to see Mount Etna and the amazing surrounding landscapes. Was a great fun mix of OnRoad and OffRoad driving. The late October 2022 temperature was just perfect (not too hot or cold) and the changing colours of the leaves were really set off against the grey and black lava flows. We loved every minute of this experience and would recommend it to everyone who is visiting Etna.

Our time with Gianfranco was fabulous! He is a lovely man, so knowledgeable, friendly and articulate. He explained everything so well and made it all so easy. An amazing day!

It was really great. It was my first time driving a Quad-Bike and the guides were incredibly patient with me (it's not easy to drive a Quad). I really enjoyed the trip.

Once in a lifetime experience. Best thing I did in Sicily
