My girlfriend and had booked a quad tour for around 9am. Due to problems with the car, we were only there at 10.30. After a telephone consultation, we were able to start the tour at 2 p.m. They drove us to the meeting point at the parking lot and gave us tips on what to do in the meantime. Overall, the tour was TOP and the fact that we were the only guests to do a tour at 2 p.m. was really more than goodwill from the provider! A very big praise and thank you again for it. The guide was very good and considerate !!

Phenomenal way to explore Mt. Etna and its eruption history! Join guides for a thorough ride across all types of terrain, including gravel, dirt, mud and asphalt. The English guide spoke clearly, translating throughout the entire journey. Highly recommend this activity!


Great tour so much fun and excitement . The views where amazing going up the mountain. Only one thing I would recommend is that the tour would stop along some of those beautiful sights you see along the way and let us take pictures.

This was an amazing experience, anyone who likes nature and adventure will complete enjoy this. It was so worth the money and my guide Peppe was amazing and knowledgeable, and a joy to speed the day with.

An almost perfect experience. Great guides, great route, fantastic landscape and everything harmonizes with the approximately four-hour length of the trip. Gladly again!!!
