We had an amazing half day tour of Mount Etna with Maria Gracia as our guide. We called her very last minute the night before and she was completely accommodating, meeting us halfway in her car so we could do the tour of Mount Etna together in her car. Maria Gracia is incredibly knowledgable able Mount Etna, its history, and its geology. She knew the answers to all of our questions and we learned so much on our tour! We got to see the most recent lava flow, do a short trek to an old crater, check out a cave, and do a factory tour of typical food from the region. It was a unique experience and I would absolutely recommend choosing this as your tour to Mount Etna! Instead of being in a big tour group, it was just me, my friend, and Maria Gracia. It felt like we were being shown around the volcano by a friend instead of a tour guide. Absolutely book your tour with Panorama Sicilia!

We booked a half-day tour to the Etna with Panorama Sicilia (suggested by our landlord in the B & B) - and it turned out to be an excellent decision.
Our guide, Maria Gracia, was a professional historian who could tell us everything about the volcanoe and the local history, At the same time, the stories and explanations were well balanced with things to see and exprience. We stopped to buy sandwiches for lunch in a little local bakery and visited a honey factory shop at the end of the trip, but we never felt pressure to buy things - to the contrary, we felt like we are with friends who are giving us this gift of discovering their amazing land!
We got a very reasonabe discount, too, for families with teenagers.

Siamo partiti da Catania con MariaGrazie e Angela al Etna.
We had a very pleasant journey with them in their car passing by at the village of Zafferana buying some honey jars. We moved on to the plains of the Etna mountain and had a lovely dash into a cave and ended at a wine and olive oil tasting location.
We felt very comfortable and enjoyed our stay and tour with them! They can show you around and explain anything in english or french!
