We had a truly enjoyable and memorable day and recommend Etna People. This tour does require the ability to walk over rough terrain and climb several hundred m but hiking is not the... More

Before booking this trip we considered going to Etna ourselves, as we hired a car when in Sicily. I'm so glad we didn't, because we were just not equipped to do it. In Taormina it's quite warm already in March and we came to Sicily dressed in spring clothes.This tour required very warm, wind-proof clothing, hats, gloves and snow equipment,... More

Once you are in Sicily, you got to visit the highest active volcano in Europe. We chose Etna people because we read and heard a lot of good things about them. The guide Marcello picked us at our hotel and we were really glad he was our guide, as he had a lot of knowledge along with interesting and funny... More

We were very unsatisfied with the Etna all day excursion. Etna People did not provide enough information about the excursion and the time spent at each place. We were not aware that we would be snowshoeing the whole time we were on Etna. This made for us being very poorly prepared. We also were at the Alcantara Gorges for less... More

Etna P, Reception at Etna People, responded to this review

Dear Customer, thank you for expressing your impression about the tour. Anyway, we would like to answer because we think that your review does not reflect the reality of our tour. First of all, you received the detailed programme of the tour by email where it was written that in case of snow we provide the snowshoes. It is a... More

The mountain erupted (but it was completely safe)! Our guide was very helpful. Would recommend. We got to see a lot of beautiful views and craters. We also had a fabulous lunch...the food and wine were typical of the region. In a different season, we might have been able to go swimming at the gorge, too.

The best thing about this tour was Lucca, the guide, who was extremelly knowledgeable, helpful and considerate of his tour group. To be honest, you could just go to etna on your own, but you would miss out on all the background info on the volcano. February is a great time to go, lots of snow, sunshine and not many... More

We had a fantastic day with our guide, Paulo! Everything was great..from the prompt pickup, group size of six, detailed information presented, lovely lunch and considerate, friendly service! Plus, we lucked out and had a sunny warm day. Paulo was an excellent guide being very knowledgeable, humorous and attentive to everyone's needs and experience level with snowshoeing. We would give...

Paolo was our guide and he was excellent! He had a degree in geology and was very informative about all of the sites we visited. We went in early February and there was snow on the craters but snow trekking was so much fun! We were not able to see the lava cave due to the unsafe conditions in winter... More
