Very good experience
, Sep 2021
The trip was very interesting with different experiences (the tunnel and the walk)+ the explanations. The guide was passionate about the subject and told a lot of stories about local life
Very good
, Aug 2021
Very good, though not much hiking, very suitable for people who'd like to see the Etna but do not want to walk very far. Personally, we'd have liked some more hiking but apart from that the tour and the guide were great
Good Etna Excursion
, Jul 2021
Nice history and information about the volcano. We saw several viewpoints and entered a lava tube. We did some tracking, but not so much as to get tired.
A must to do

Simon super friendly and passionate. On time, everything ok and well organized, a must to do if you are staying in Catane. Pick up location very close to our hotel.
Helpful thoughtful guide

Danielle was so helpful and thoughtful and patient and a mine of fascinating information. He even took some photographs for me on his camera when my phone battery died. Highly recommended.
Amazing tour and great guide
, Oct 2020
We had an amazing time touring Mount Etna - the pick-up and drop-off were very smooth, our guide (Simon) was very friendly and knowledgeable; it was fascinating to hear about the geology and history of the area. We would definitely recommend this tour!

Top Etna tour
, Sep 2020
Very nice tour. They picket us up at our location at 8:10 and brought us back at around 14:30. While the walk on the vulcan at +/- 2000 m.a.s.l. we learned a lot about the Etna and the eruptions. Our very nice guide (Mauricio), spoke good english and italian. We can definitely recommend this tour.
Highly recommended

The tour guide was a great guy, funny, knowledgeable and experienced with driving. Tour pick up and drop off times were accurate which I was grateful for. A 6 hour concise tour explaining what Mt Etna is and why it is important. Definitely do this!

I enjoyed the tour and it was perfect for what I wanted and the time I had To see Etna- however I didn’t find the guide’s English very clear at all (as nice and relaxed as he was) He spoke better French than English.
Great Views
, Oct 2019
We had two guides for this trip, one of which was a studying geologist. With his help and explanation we learned a lot as we traveled through the tour. Both of our guides were fantastic, friendly and knew a great deal. A bit of helpful information is that you will be brought up to around 2000 meters by van and will do a bit of light hiking. Make sure you check the weather and dress accordingly. There were some stunning views of Mt. Etna and the surrounding areas. Definitely make this tour a part of your trip.
