Very nice experience. We weren't so lucky in the weather, as the day started with a thunderstorm, but they phoned us and postponed the tour by 30 minutes. Very helpful, they came to pick us up in front of the door where he was staying. The guide deprived himself of his sandals to lend them to a lady who did not have them to be able to walk through the Alcantara gorges. The means of transport was a bit old, and this made the journey not exactly comfortable. This small negative note, however, does not affect the fantastic experience we had. I recommend it to everyone
Theresa is a very good guide! She speaks good English, drives the old minivan safely through the area and knows a lot! You could ask her anything and you knew a lot! Very interesting and highly recommended! The Alcantara Gorge is also super beautiful! There are a lot of stairs going down, but they are definitely worth it! We couldn't bathe because it had rained shortly before and was still cold, but I couldn't help walking through the shallow water! Was a great day!
If the view is reasonable (you can check on monitors in front of the cable car ticket sales), you should invest additional money (currently € 67 pp) and drive up to the possible 2,750m, it's worth it! Make sure you have suitable shoes with you for the gorge!
Simone is a great guide! We had a great tour to Etna, then we went to a small farm and then to the Alcantara Cave - the madness!
Our guide, Theresa is an volcano expert. we have learned a lot of things about Etna's history. Nice excursion, we recommand.
