Our private guide Francesco (hubbie and I were only guests for this tour) picked us up at our hotel right on time. He shared lots of interesting info en route to the base station of Mount Etna. I had no idea that there were completely different kinds of volcanoes. We elected to take the gondola to 7,500 feet and then the 4-wheel drive to the 10,000 foot elevation. Our alpine guide and volcanologist then led our party up to and around the rim of this crater - hubbie and I are both almost 70 yrs old, and not particularly fit but are proud to say that we kept up and enjoyed the entire experience. After descending, Francesco drove us to the winery Oro d'Etna - we were treated like royalty! I was a little concerned that we would be expected to buy cases of wine - not the case at all. We could not have been more warmly welcomed by Noemi and the owner of this enterprise. Of course, a variety of delicious wines were offered for tasting along with plates of nibbles that complemented each wine. We were also invited to sample the wonderful honey that they produce from their 900 bee hives. Several other products were also on offer. And we never felt any pressure to purchase - although, predictably, we did! You are guaranteed to enjoy a wonderful day if you take advantage of this tour. Lou from Canada.

My favorite day in Sicily

Our guide was Nando and he was fantastic. I went on this tour with a friend and we had the best time. There was another couple that was also part of the tour that joined along. My friend and I were staying in Catania for 3 days and wanted to explore outside of the city without renting a car. The van picked us up at our Airbnb and we took a scenic ride to Etna while Nando provided the history. Nando was personable, funny and spoke English well. When we got out of the van our jaws dropped at the beauty of the landscape. It was a foggy on the mountain (we're in the clouds) without a view, but it just added to the ambiance of the black, moon-like atmosphere. We chose not to take the tram up and we still had a great tour walking around one of the craters. After that we visited a lava cave, which was deep and cool to see. We left Etna and went to a shop where they sell honey and olive oil with tastes for every item. And finally we went to a winery and were escorted to a table with a fantastic view and enjoyed tasting three wines while eating some snacks and got to relax. We then got a tour of the winery and headed back to the city with ample time to enjoy the late afternoon there. Highly recommend this tour.

What a great day we had with Natalie our guide. She was super knowledgeable and so friendly. Firstly we visited a lava cave which was super interesting. The trip to Etna was jaw dropping. We would highly recommend taking the cable car and 4wd bus to the top unless you are injured as even though its expensive its absolutely worth it. The views and experience are unparalleled. Its a good idea to take a light jacket and comfy walking shoes as its uneven terrain and even if its a warm day it can be cold at the top. After Etna we enjoyed seeing 2 wineries. The first we had wine and olive oil and dries fruit and honey tasting with the opportunity to buy. The second we had a lovely anti pasta platter huge and catered for gluten free and an abundance of wines to try. Such a great day, we would definitely do it again. Cant recommend Natalie enough for her patience, humour and enthusiasm.

Whilst my Girlfriend and I were not able to get to the top of Etna because the weather, our guide ensured we had a lot to do given the inclement weather. We explored the caves and their formations, we sampled some of the produce of Etna and we finally topped it off with wines and snack bits and at the vineyard, followed by a tour of the vineyard to understand their processes. A really day out even if we couldn't get to the top of Etna! :-

Lovely day but I was expecting better with the wine tasting, it was more of a quick taste and nibbles then a sales pitch, worst of all we were bombarded by a cruise trip which overtook our table eating our food, If I had the chance to do this again I would skip the wine tasting
