Great day out, well organised with all transport services and links running to time as advertised. It was just a shame we were not allowed all the way up to 3000m for safety reasons, however, we still got to view a number of craters at 2700m. The views were great.

What an amazing opportunity to discover one of the greatest volcanoes in the world! We were very fortunate to have an excellent guide who keenly explained information in both English and German, most importantly English for us. We went right to the top and there we met with very experienced archaeologists and vulcanologists who were keen to tell us about Mount Etna. I would definitely encourage people to have this unbelievable experience.

Beautiful day tour, with competent tour guide. Everything went well. Punctual pickup! I would have liked to have had a little more time on Etna to visit the Silvestri craters at 1900 m. Since we were back at the hotel at 3 p.m., you could plan a little more time.
