Carmelo (and Mario) is proud and passionate about the volcano and his enthusiasm is contagious. The way he shares his experience builds up as the day goes. We appreciated the Monte Sartorius trail , its variety of terrains and the mid day stop at Rifugio was nice. Mario and Carmelo share their knowledge about the history, flora and fauna of... More

We were a small group and spent most of our time hiking around 6,000 feet on various lava flows. I spent my career as a US National Park... More

It was a very interesting tour. We experienced the Etna in a different way. Carmelo, our guide, told with so much enthusiasm about the history, the geology and flora and fauna. It was really eco tourism. We had a fantastic day! Carmelo, thanks for showing us this beautiful volcano.

Carmelo was our guide for a very memorable Mount Etna trip. He clearly loves the mountain and is extremely knowledgeable about the geology, history and biology of the area. He showed us lava flow from several different eruptions and we came away with a sense of awe as well as a better understanding of this remarkable place. We were in... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Etna. Carmelo explains everything about the flora and the story of the vulcano. I really recommed the visit to Etna with Carmelo to all the people who want to do responsible eco-tourism with an expert on the matter.
