What people are saying about Nicolosi

Unfortunately due to bad weather we didn't get to climb Mount Etna as the original tour date had to be moved due to bad weather. I've given 5 stars as Edoardo (our guide?), kept us informed on whether we could climb Etna the following day. Unfortunately, the weather gods were against us. Edoardo arranged a full refund for our trip, which we were very grateful for.

awesome tour. very knowlegeable about the mountain and activity on it. following the trip we were send videos of previous explosions. We were not able to do the highest part of the tour due to activity in the crater, but were partially refunded for it.

Despite the cancellation of the 4x4 part at the top of Etna, Edouardo was a great guide and we really discovered the site. Very nice excursion accessible with a 9-year-old child (walker). I recommend.

Great experience, if there is one thing to do in Sicily it is this hike. Many thanks to Édouardo (the guide) for the explanations in French.

Very nice excursion on the snowy Etna. Thank you to our 2 Guides Edoardo and Biagio for their explanations and their professional support
