    Die Tour war klasse organisiert! Nachdem morgens alle 5 Leute aus unserer Gruppe eingesammelt wurden, sind wir zuerst zum Weingut der Etna People gefahren. Dort konnte jeder Wanderschuhe und Jacke für die Tour ausleihen und umziehen, wenn nötig. Die Gruppen wurden super zusammen gestellt. So waren die Leute in unserer Gruppe um die 30 Jahre alt. Unser Guide Ezio, war Klasse! Er konnte uns vieles über die Geschichte der Gegend und zum Leben um den Ätna erzählen. Zusätzlich haben wir etwas off-road die Umgebung erkundet und Ezio hat auch darauf geachtet, dass wir nicht mit den anderen Touri-Gruppen unterwegs sind - vielen Dank dafür! Der Ätna war sehr beeindruckend und wir haben viele kleine Krater entdeckt und haben erfahren, wie diese entstehen. Am Nachmittag sind wir dann noch in die Alcantara Schluchten gefahren, was sehr beeindruckend war. Wir hatten kurz Zeit die Schluchten etwas zu erkunden. Insgesamt ein sehr gelungener Ausflug mit einem super Guide!

    Really great, adventurous and interesting tour. Ezio our guide was super friendly, funny and was able to show us great spots away from all the other groups of tourists. Our group size of 6 was perfect for the tour. The lunch and the small wine tasting with a great atmosphere in the winery were very good. Great tour and can only be recommended.

    The visit was very interesting and very informative. Our guide, Alex, a lovely and passionate man, gave us an unforgettable day. Thanks to him we will keep a beautiful memory and more knowledge about this magnificent ETNA volcano! We recommend this visit, from the morning to the visit of the volcano until the end of the afternoon at the alcantara gorges we enjoyed ourselves, from the view, the landscapes, the multiple information given with the heart and the passion and even the lunchtime food in a farmhouse at the foot of the volcano with a small group of people from all over the world…. It was all very much appreciated. A big thank you Alex our favorite guide of this trip! Oceane and John.
