Marco & his friend/fellow guide picked up our party of 10 (5 adults, 5 kids) from our villa in Acireale in 2 4x4s. We stopped in lovely non touristy town of Trecastagni for provisions before going on an exciting and fun bumpy off-road adventure across old lava fields. Then 2nd stop to look over the awesome Valle del Bove. Then on to the main stop off point on Etna for exploring the old craters. We had asked for an easy trip, no challenging hiking. And that's what we got, perfect for our group. Enough adventure and feeling in touch with Etna, without any scary challenge. Marco speaks great English, has a wonderful sense of humour, and told us so much about Etna and volcanoes in general. Fascinating and fun. The trip back down involved a stop for a picnic, with amazing Sicilian food, bread, olives, cheese and wine provided by Marco. A few days later we texted Marco with some Etna questions and he responded, no problem. Above and beyond what we expected from the half day trip. We paid 60 Euros per head, great value considering we got picked up and dropped back to our villa, had longer than a half day adventure, lovely food we hadn't expected, learned a lot from a knowledgable and very likeable Sicilian! Thank you, Marco xxx
