The transport was very bumpy and tedious (it took about 2-5 to 3 hours from the tour with 5 hours according to the offer). The guide was very friendly and open and explained everything very well and understandably in English. He was also always open to questions. The tour itself (easy hike) was very short. Booking and processing was very easy and uncomplicated.

Etna has a very large park, for it was the first time and I wanted an activity that would allow me an overview of the volcano. Excellent transfer and my visit started from there with the stories and the description of the villages we met on the way! Super affordable trekking and unbeatable photos! I recommend

Quite a rewarding experience. It is still good to know that the first part of the visit is not at the top of Etna. The visit to a cave and the walk on ancient craters at low altitude disappointed us a little (because we come from a volcanic region). The last part at 2000m, at the foot of the funicular, was still impressive. We felt like we were walking on the moon. If you want to climb very high it is not suitable because we do not take the funicular. This outing is totally suitable for children. The guide is very nice but the visit planned in French was ultimately mainly in Italian.
