Amazing experience, knowing a place full of history and emotion! Our guide Luigi was amazing, detailing every event that took place. Don't forget to bring a coat, because even in the summer it's cold up there!!! Our guide Luigi was wonderful, friend and has immense knowledge that we thank him for sharing with us.

Our trip to Etna was a wonderful experience! Andreas, our tour guide, was super friendly, motivated & had extensive knowledge. Andreas was fluent in 3 languages & was happy to translate the information into English, French or Italian. We booked the sunset tour, which I can only recommend !! The landscape was breathtaking & the twilight made the surroundings and the volcano appear very mystical. We were lucky that in the end the Etna began to spit high fountains of lava. Andreas took us to places where we could see this fascinating natural spectacle particularly well. The trip was really worth it & we were very, very excited about the crater landscape.

We were picked up at our hotel and with a van we went to a museum in a village near Etna. Honey was made in this museum, among other things. You could see and taste different things. Nice experience! Then on to Etna. First drive up a bit and then visited a lava cave. Then on to a parking spot and we continued on foot. A tough hike, but it was all worth it! What a beautiful view over the valley. Our guide Simone was very nice and knew a lot about Etna. He did his job with great pleasure. All in all a great experience! Highly recommended.
