From Taormina: Mount Etna and Alcantara River Tour
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 9 hours
Pick up was very straight forward. Ugo (the guide) was extremely informative on the way to Etna. He sorted the tickets and clothing (boots and coats - both very comfortable). Cable car had great views and 4w truck to top was a great fun. At the top the guide was extremely informative and knowledgeable. However Ugo took over the interpretation for us. It was fantastic at the top - such a clear day but very windy. Amazing experience to be so close to an active volcano. Lunch was delicious and very plentiful. Great chatting to Ugo and other travellers. The cave was interesting- again so much information from Ugo who, as a geologist, has so much knowledge to impart but explains it such a way we could understand. The river site was very scenic and great to paddle to cool off on such a hot day. It was very crowded though. All in all a fantastic trip, made all the better by Ugo who was a top guide.
Very full and interesting day. Roberto, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The wine testing was very nice, and the meal tasty (but a tad too simple/small). Overall a very enriching experience I would recommend to all. PS. shoes and rain jackets are provided for those needing them
The trip was amazing and with the snow it made it all magical. Toni was excellent, his passion for Etna passed to all of us. We left feeling we want to know even more about it and come back for more. Thank you Toni and Get your guide for an amazing experience!
Wonderful whole-day excursion in a small group to spectacular Summit Mount Etna (Surrealistic Environment) and amazing Alcantara Gorges (Beautiful as in a fairy tale), very nice and good guide, delicious lunch!
Giuseppe was awesome! Super knowledgeable and paced the tour to our group. Fantastic hike on Etna. Great lunch with wine tasting. And the Alcantara Canyon was a perfect ending!
