    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!

    It was a great tour by guide Tony. He was very knowledgeable about Mt Etna and Sicily and shared a vast amount of information regarding vulcanology in general. He was also very easy to chat with which made the tour more enjoyable. It was clear he was passionate about what he does which really helps. The tour was well organised with hiking boots and jackets included if needed as well as gloves, beanies, etc. We learnt about the volcano and lava and got the opportunity to climb craters, explore lava caves and then finallt, enjoyed a fine (and very filling) meal paired with some excellent wines. Highly recommend!

    Our guide, Tony, was passionate about volcanology, and described Mount Etna, its activity and history, very well. He made sure we had a chance to see it spitting ash once the clouds lifted, and answered our questions well. He is very proud of the fact that he lives on it, and was able to give us a little peak into what life is like living so near an active volcano. I also enjoyed seeing Alcantra canyons, and especially tasting the wines from Mount Etna grapes. Lunch was very delicious.
