Fantastic experience! So pleased that my boyfriend and I chose Etna Tours to go with! This excursion was fantastic value for money, and what an incredible experience looking down into the craters of Europe’s most active volcano to see it spewing molten lava! They provided walking boots, jackets, helmets and walking sticks. We were able to pay the additional €33pp for the cable cars and 4x4 bus on card. The hike was relatively difficult but we took it at a nice gentle pace and every direction you looked the views were breathtaking. Because we were lucky enough to have such good visibility out guide took us over the centre of the volcano to the north east side and we got to gaze down into an additional crater to the one on the itinerary and this was rumbling and intermittently spewing molten lava, what a thrill! The first crater was beautiful as well, huge and moon-like with impressive plumes of smoke all around. The two guides were very jovial and handed out treats at lunch. Amazing!
The tour is just great! A nice mix of history and (local) cuisine. I wouldn't but recommend it. Fabrizio is a very nice guy, with fun and interesting stories about the food you are just eating. Very cool way indeed to get to know some of the many fascinating facets of Palermo.
Salvo was very knowledgeable , had some great stories to tell and interesting facts about the local area. His driving was great through the narrow roads and he gave us some useful Local tips
The whole day was excellently organised. Our guide had 32 years experience, spoke good English and was very knowledgeable on everything ‘Mt Etna’. A must-do for any nature enthusiasts.
Perfect. Luca (our guide) is highly knowledgeable and made the trek very dynamic. I totally recommend it, it’s been an incredible experience. Grazie Luca!
