We did a sunset tour to Etna in a four wheel drive with two others. Our guide Antonio was very knowledgeable about the history and geological detail of Etna (he is a geologist after all). He drove us to several lava flows on the lower slopes of the mountain and then to a local produce shop, selling a lovely selection of olive oils, pesto etc. We then visited a cave created by the lava flows. This was amazing and again Antonio's knowledge was very informative. At our current altitude we were in heavy fog but once we got up to 2000mtrs this gave way to sunshine (you are above the clouds) and here we walked around some craters and got excellent views of the top summits amongst the smell of fresh pine trees. You really feel like you see and take in a lot for the afternoon. As with previous reviews for the guides, Antonio was really knowledgeable, very friendly and good fun. I definitely recommend.

A must if visiting Catania, we had a lovely time, with our wonderful guide Mirko. His Language skills were fantastic, he was very informative and knowledgeable and answered all our questions with a smile.
He was without a doubt the best guide we have had in our trip to Sicilly. The views are amazing and we even went into a natural cave created by lava flowing out, amazing experience wrap up warm and wear shoes that are comfortable.
You can take a cable car to the top but it was closed when we were there, walking up is quite a hike.

Thank you for a lovely experience

Because this was the cheapest option we could find, we didn't expect too much and thought it would be a very basic and touristy tour around the vulcano. We were so wrong! Paulo (and his dog Pipa, which he brought along after we had confirmed it wouldn't be an issue) was a better tour guide than we ever could have wished for. As a true Sicilian with over 20 years of experience he showed us around very exclusive places, and his knowledge stretched far beyond basic things about the vulcano. Moreover, he was incredibly kind and noticeably very passionate about his job. We even had an improvised dinner together in Catania after the trip. An unforgettable experience!

Your review is a great satisfaction for us! We offer a range of low cost excursions without limiting the quality of service. Our low cost excursions do not only include the transfer to the Sapienza Refuge. Excursions are made up of transfers and walks, views in caves, tasting of honey and aromatic oils, all accompanied by professional guides. Thank you for sharing your opinion with us

Arfina,Antonio and Francesco were the most helpful staff you could wish for. The drive to Etna was most informative. Antonio being a geologist had a great knowledge of all the rock formations and explained it in excellent English. He also had a good sense of humour.
