It was overall good trip. Perhaps, the car which was assigned to us could have been a better. As a guide if you know only three people are traveling then perhaps you could have adjust it accordingly instead of a big van. The tour guide was well informed and explained things in details.

Picked up slightly late but we had the most wonderful day. Teresa our guide was lovely, friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. We had our morning tour up Mount Etna and spent our afternoon in Taramina and the whole experience was wonderful. Thank you Teresa and thank you lemon tours. Three very satisfied customers.

There was good communication from the company and our tour guide was lovely with a lot of knowledge. The trip up Etna was more robust than expected so some degree of fitness is required. Also proper hiking boots and robust clothes needed as you get filthy! Luckily we had a change of clothes for the afternoon.
