The combination of Etna's self-evident beauty and guidance by a passionate local scientist makes this truly special. The vibrant colors of Etna's fall foliage was unexpected and stunning, and the mild November temperatures a circumstance to be grateful for. Tony was an exceptional guide whose passion for and knowledge of geology and history were a blessing. lt's a gift to be guided by someone who comes from a long local lineage that have called Etna their home.
Well organized tour, some waiting in line for the 4x4 buses both up and down, but not extremely long. Very knowledgeable guide, told us a lot about volcanism in general and Etna in particular. He also adjusted his pace to make sure I can keep up, as I was by far the oldest member of the group. We were also lucky to have clear and sunny weather, though it was biting cold and extremely windy at the top. Overall, a very nice (and tiring) experience.
We got lucky and had a great view on mount Etna, the sunset as well as the cities below. Our nice guide took as to multiple locations and provided some information on the history of the volcano and its characteristics. Car was clean, Covid19 measures were all taken care off. It would have been great to hear a lot more information about the volcano and history and make the different stops of the tour feel more like one cohesive experience.
We saw so much more and got so much closer than we even imagined!! Our guide Daniele was amazing - so kind and so knowledgable. A must for anyone who is in the area! Be wary - our original trip was cancelled due to bad weather (mid October) so make sure you have an alternative day you can postpone too so you aren’t disappointed. Also - bring gloves and wear more layers than you think!!
Ein tolles Erlebnis; perfekt organisiert und mit unvergesslichen Eindrücken. Guide Tony, der selbst in einem kleinen Dorf am Ätna lebt, hat uns mit großer Sachkenntnis und Begeisterung geführt. Die Wanderung war problemlos zu bewältigen und bot spektakuläre Ausblicke. Imbiss und Wein auf einem Weingut waren dann ein schöner Abschluss.
