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!

We were picked up right at the hotel by our super nice guide Enzo. The tour was well organized from start to finish and we just had fun. The things that Enzo explained and told us were great and it was super interesting! The price-performance ratio is top! We would do it again anytime!

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!

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.
