The day was well organised with the bus picking us up promptly at Giardini Naxos at 7.30. Make sure you are early the bus does not wait for long! Following more pick ups from Taormina etc we were on our way and to our surprise stopped at a service station for 20 mins (I’m assuming as the driver needed to stop due to time on the road - as otherwise a very odd place to stop) in hindsight we would have however bought snacks as there was a lot of time between breakfast and lunch, especially for anyone like us who did not really have time for breakfast with the early pick up point. However they are the downsides the trip was totally worth it! Spectacular sites of the Greek theatre and the paradise caves were brilliant. And Ortigia was beautiful with amazing buildings to go view. Overall a great trip with our guide, Eva being very knowledgable, interesting and funny!
We had a great time walking around the craters of Etna and inside a lava cave. Our guide, Maurizio, picked us up from our hotel and gave us a great tour, not only in Mt. Etna but also during the whole trip. He also provided useful advice for our free walk in Taormina which was very beautiful (although very crowded). We where then again dropped outside our hotel . It was all in all a very nice and comfortable experience.
Our trip to the Etna and Taormina was really great. Our young guide Dario made it even more interesting thanks to his enthousiastic storytelling and amazing knowledge of nature and ecology of the volcano. The picnic and wine at midday were delicious. Also Taormina was wonderful (but very hot!) Highly recommended trip!
The trip was great, the perfect combination of walking and visiting a historic city. The guide, Giovanni, was the perfect guide. He was professional and funny. We recomand this trip (with the guide, of course).
The trip was really amazing, walking around Etna was very charming with the trees, snow and mountains! Our guide Giovani was very much friendly, fun and knowledgeable, it was a pleasure doing the tour with him
