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!

Great trip! The guide online didn’t say to bring warm clothes. The honey spot was a little weird as they didn’t offer wine like the guide online stated and it was very quick stop. The cave was cool as well, but the sunset at the crater was amazing!

Very knowledgeable and friendly guide. we tasted the flavors of Etna and lived a unique experience. The walk on the side craters was very pleasant and not at all difficult to deal with. Definitely an experience worth doing!

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!

Nice experience, made even more great by the guide Giuseppe! Too bad the rain that spoiled the view from the top a bit.
