About Go-Etna
Since 2009 we have made it our business to make sure that visitors of our beautiful island have a most pleasant stay. Our multilingual guides (English, German, Italian, Spanish, etc.) have become a real trademark of Go-Etna. Who could bring a foreign country closer to you than a local? Getting to know the place by taking a “look behind the scenes” – we have been following this principle for years. Beside the classical highlights, our guides will show you the authentic Sicily from their perspective. Among our standing and satisfied customers we reckon hotels, camping sites, cruise ship passengers, company clients, travel agencies, tour operator and tourist facilities in the area of Catania and Taormina. The GO-ETNA team and our partners have the ability to meet the requirements of all our customers, with a team of experienced staff, a well-equipped vehicle fleet and technical material.

Valentino was our guide on this unforgettable excursion to Mt Etna. He was extremely knowledgeable about every detail of the Vulcan; the history, the flora and the fauna of the mountain. Since the weather was looking sketchy the itinerary was reversed to do the hiking first and then the off-road portion and visit to the grotto. It was a good thing, since it started hailing while we were taking a lunch break. As we sat in the Baita on the mountain we could see the face of the mountain change from black vulcanic Rock to bright white snow and hail. It was a beautifully majestic sight to behold. Overall this excursion was perfect in every way. We could not have asked for a better trip or a better guide. Thank you Valentino and Go-Etna for an unforgettable time.

The full day tour to explore Etna was amazing, the views, the scenery, the hike, the great lunch have been only one great part of the tour. The other half was the really interesting and delightful guides: VALENTINO (thank you, Sir, for your amazing knowledge and fun and entertaining nature) and FRANCESCO - who is sooo fun and who went the extra mile so that the group gets the best out of the tour. We clearly recommend Go-Etna and the tour as a “MUST DO” when in Sicliy.

We took his tour on my 76th birthday - everything fine. The guides are experienced and knowledgeable mountaineers, with a great knowledge of English. They go up the cable car and in the 4WHD minibus, before taking us on a guided informative walk. Some of the cheaper tours being sold just drive you to the base of the cable car, and leave you to take the transportation up. Normally we like to take our own time around museums etc, but for this walk at the 3,000 (almost) height, it was important to have a knowledgeable guide. Go-Etna gave us a discount code because we took their tour. They are also a transfer company. We used them, and the discount, for a transgfer from our hotel in Catania to one in Syracuse. Sure, it was more expensive than taxi-train or bus - taxi, and a lot less hassle with suitcases and timing. We also used them (and the discount code) back from Syracuse to Catania airport. Everything was on time. I strongly recommend this company.

Excellent. Both the guide and driver were awesome, both knowledgeable about the area and volcano as well as super friendly and helpful. Besides the tour, they also gave us some amazing tips for our remaining days in Sicily, which helped make our holiday even better.

Davide our driver picked us up promptly as confirmed via text and email (very organised company!) and we set off on the most fantastic day out. His knowledge and enthusiasm was infectious - Etna is awe inspiring and the phenomenal facts and figures Salvo (our tour guide) imparted gave us the full picture of how and why this natural wonder exists in relative harmony with it's surrounding human population. Don't hesitate to book with GoEtna - you're looked after very well and your personal enjoyment is thier main aim!
