Andrea was a fabulous guide who easily navigated the french and english speaking griup and by the end of the day we all became friends. We started the day in a lava tube on Mount Etna and ended the day for sunset in Taormina. I highly suggest this tour.

My. Etna and Taormina tour

Wonderful landscapes and a knowledgeable and patient tour guide. He answered all of our questions and he took his time to make sure that we all understood what he was saying. The only thing I would do differently is let people stay in Taormina longer- it was so beautiful so 2 hours and 15 minutes weren’t enough!

Four random people who were on this tour made this fun. Otherwise, this tour was not good. The guide spit on me when he talked. Had smokers breath. The guide waited at Etna approx 1/2 hour longer than planned because other rude people were not at meeting place at specified time. The guide took a detour to a honey “museum” that was not described as part of the trip. Because we were delayed and took detour we hardly had any time in Taormina. I made a mistake in planning a trip for the next day and guide knew it but did not try to help me rectify the problem. As a matter of fact, guide started talking in another language to other people in the car as if I was not there. I found this extremely rude. I was charged for a trip I did not go on so because of everything I’m resentful and angry.

Danilo was so very kind, knowledgeable, and accommodating. I'm pregnant and he ensured that I was safe and happy throughout the entire experience. I highly recommend this tour! Mount Etna was so fascinating and Taormina was breathtaking with unique shops.

Enzo was super welcoming, always positive and super kind. The Etna visit is quick, no special equipment needed. It’s worth to see for sure. Taormina itself worths a full day, as that has breathtaking views and romantic old little buildings which kept in good condition.The group was full of strangers who became friends by the end of the trip.
