    Mount Etna
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    The Etna excursion at sunset - Sunset allows you to visit some of the most evocative places of the Etna park, including the Valle del Bove, the side craters and the extinguished lava flows of various eras, crossing the lunar landscapes until the fall of sun, to admire the colors of the sunset from an altitude of about 2000 meters. If there are active eruptions in progress we will obviously give priority to the vision of the eruptive theater from panoramic positions. The difficulty of the excursion can vary, according to the guide, from a very simple route to more demanding excursions. All the itineraries are formulated, thanks to the experience of our staff, to live an interesting and at the same time funny experience. We will also let you experience the thrill of descending into the meanders of the volcano by visiting a lava flow cave (lava tube) equipped with a helmet and speleologist lights, to understand the phenomena connected to the lava flow. Our nature guides will enrich your excursion by illustrating, with a simple and clear language for everyone, the innumerable natural and volcanological aspects of Europe's largest volcano, named UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2013. The tour ends with a sweet aperitif based of wine and almond desserts, in full Sicilian style.

We highly recommend the Jeep Tour at sunset. In only few hours you can get a sense of the magnificent “Lady Etna” from the Valle del Bove, to the craters, the forests and the lava tubes. Our guide Antonio was exceptional! His background is in natural science and he thought us everything from how the lava is formed , the history of all eruptions and places. He is passionate, professional and fun. We ended the tour at sunset with delicious treats. If you are looking for an option of Etna Tour , look no further!

First of all; our guide "Seb" was really great. He had a lot of knowledge regarding basically all volcanos and explained everything regarding Mother Etna in detail and with humor. We were fascinated by the experience and have a whole new appreciation for this natural phenomena.
The tour itself was really nice, and we had the fortune that, when we walked around a secundaire crater, we suddenly were swallowed up by a cloud. This created an amazing view and atmosphere, one that we both will never forget.
Even our guide could not stop making pictures of the scene.

To sum up: FANTASTIC!

These last vacations, end of July I went to Sicily; Palermo and Catania, and one of my absolutely must dos was to visit the Etna vulcano. I didnt have much time because I had just arrived from Palermo that day, I was actually tired and I was leaving the city 2 days after for Naples. I was heartbroken almost certain that I didnt have reserved the excursion with enough time in advance and I felt it was too late. As soon as I got to the hotel in Catania that morning I browsed for excursions and found this very convenient excursion in the afternoon at a very convenient price. As I was eating my arancini, haha for lunch that same day, around 3 pm, the tour guide textes me, saying he was looking for me to go to the excursion. I thought it would be the next day or that there was no excusrion at all. I run to my hotel , super excited, change my sandals for sneakers and met him. His name is Sebastiano and I can't describe the EXCELLENCE of this tour, I would give him 10 stars if it was possible. You can tell he is passionate about Etna, and very knowledgeable. He took us to 4 different points of Etna, explaining everything and the most important facts about history, geography, agricolture, weather, I asked him a zillion questions and he asnswered them all. He was very sweet and made me feel protected all the time, even when we entered a cave created by lava, a whole on the ground. He was just very friendly, protective, present, professional. Timing was perfect, he respected that we wanted to enjoy Etna, he let me shop for a souvenir on top of the volcano, even when we were 2000 feet above see level and I was scared of the hight he made me feel safe. at the end we saw the sunset which is spectacular from Etna and he brought some delicious almond cookies, wine and almond milk. I totally recomend this excursion, it's worth the price and you'll enjoy it with less people, it was only 3 of us. He also avoided to take us where all the tourists were, so we were exclusive, hahaha. Sebastiano you are the best!!! Next time in Sicily I ll repeat. (Etna is much more attractive than Vesuvio, more interesting, and better service)

This tour was excellent in every aspect. Our tour guide, Luca, was patient, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and kind. We were the oldest participants in the group and the only English speaking ones. He took his time explaining the history of Mt. Etna, including its significance to the region and the importance of it environmentally. We were a little slower in our hiking and returning to our hotel, but he stayed with us ensuring that our taxi showed up and we were safely on our way. Thank you Luca!

Our tour started on Saturday afternoon and it was our last day on Sicily. So it was last chance to visit Etna park.The weather was not so good, but despite that we also have seen a very beautiful sunset. Our guide was very communicative and full of knowledge. We were suprised about service with dessert on the top.

We took the Etna trip mid September and had the best time! Had trouble with our rental car and so the agency helped us with the transportation last minute. During the tour we had very passionate and knowledgeable tour guides who showed us amazing sights, e.g. different lava streams, craters, caves and a beautiful sunset with the sound of the Etna gas explosions in the background. Can highly recommend!

Ask for Piera and Marco: excellent guides, they are local, live in the towns along the volcano, true passion for the mountains, skiing, climbing, trekking, nature.
They are more than happy to answer to all the questions (also kids' ones) and ask for question in each 4 stops. On the old Nissan jeep off road, caves, characteristic flowers, different stones, craters at 2100 meters: this is a real adventure, excursion and exploring. To do again. Again with Piera and Marco: remembers their names!!! Thank u guys

The tour guide Peterpaul was excellent. He was knowledgeable and passionate. We learnt a lot from him. He kindly prepared wine and pastries for us to enjoy on top of the volcanos. The tour is really beyond our expectations. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Sicily. We had the best moments and memories in Sicily with Peterpaul. Thank him so much!
