We were there a couple of days ago with my brother and my mother. The half day Etna tour was real fun and also Very informative. Luigi is doing a really good job! Very passionate about volcanoes, explains everything in detail, also has very good English. We would recommend with both hands! Boyan, Yasen, Irina from Bulgaria.

After comparing a number of tours to Etna we chose this company as it had such good reviews, was possible to book at short notice (after checking the weather) and provided a half day tour. Luigi was our tour guide for the trip and picked us up on time outside our B&B. Luigi was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Etna and nature, history and Catania. For the drive up to Etna he pointed out so many items and gave us the history to the area, it was totally enlightening. We managed to arrive before the crowds and had a wonderful trip around the crater, lava cavern and so much more. The time flew by and we are now so much more informed and interested in both Etna and various other volcanoes throughout the world. Excellent tour and top guide, thank you Luigi and Excursion Etna

Booked the night before - paying is a bit of a faff as you pay part online, them they confirm it for you, then the rest is paid in cash on the day.

We got picked up from our hotel on time and went up Etna, to a lava cave and then on wine and olive oil tasting. Our guide was great with good English.

With one hour travel each way, the tour was three hours long with about 1.5 hours of this spent travelling from location to location. For €55 all inclusive it was a good deal.

I'm very glad we did this - thank you!

We were picked up on time and taken in a very comfortable van to Mt Etna. Saw the valley, caves and several non-active craters and trekked for about 90 minutes through the area. The hiking boots were top quality and recommended as the rocks are jagged. Guide was very knowledgeable and everything was translated to English . Pace of the tour was perfect and exceeded my expectations. Would definitely recommend.

7 of us went on the morning tour up the mountain. Our guide, Luigi, was very very knowledgeable and passionate. He had elaborated answers to all of our questions, really one of the best tours I've been on. The tour wasn't too long or too short and included many extra bits like the wine and honey tasting. I really recommend this company!
