What people are saying about Catania

Perfect from start to finish! The guide knows the volcano and the circuit very well. He gives a lot of very understandable explanations, in very good English. Very complete circuit, safety and adrenaline guaranteed! However, plan on good hiking boots and plenty of water.

Great organization, excellent guide. However, the description was not identical to the implementation (the hike was about 4.5 hours, no bus transport), but overall it was even nicer.

This was really a great tour. Felt like it was worth it. The instructor was well educated and spoke very good English. I really enjoyed the hike.

Nice hike, nice tour guide, walking pace at a leisurely pace so everyone could keep up.

The trip was very successful, it only started late
