The beauty of Etna
Thomas_D, May 2023
Our guide went out if his way to give us so much information on how Etna was formed. He was very supportive and helpful on our trip to Etna.
Definitely worth it!
Vertti_H, May 2023
Very good we went with quad bikes and got to see a beautiful sunset we also tried some etna produce and drinks which all were lovely
We took the tour 2 days...
gabriela, May 2023
We took the tour 2 days after the May 23 eruption and we were quite afraid of what might happen but Giuseppe was very accommodating, knowledgeable and put us at ease. I definitely recommended it .
Great adventure
Alan_P, May 2023
Really fun and exciting adventure up the mountain! Great views and lots of fun going into the cave. The local guide Pepe had so much useful information and was very fun. He also was a very safe driver.
Great afternoon
Ann_G, Apr 2023
Natacia was an amazing guide and gave us so much context. Seeing the craters and the landscape was memorable.
Etna Sunset tour is a great to end the day! Educated and inspired!
Donna_C, Apr 2023
Giuseppe was a wonderful guide! Our tour began with a brief history of Sicily as we left Catania. He took great care in noting points of interest as we made our way from one stop to the next. He was well informed about all things Etna and, obviously, enjoyed what he was doing very much! A beautiful sunset and a great tour!
Unforgettable Etna Experience
Thomas_F, Apr 2023
This was one of the highlights of our 2-week Italy trip. Regarding the tour itself, definitely worth the price. The sights were beautiful and experience unforgettable. The food tasting was fantastic - we bought half the gift shop when we left! And the staff there were extremely welcoming. What made the experience even better was our guide, Giuseppe. He was very knowledgeable, kind, and fun. He even dropped us off directly at the restaurant we had dinner at. Could not recommend this tour more!!!
beautiful sunset spot
AnaMaria_P, Aug 2022
a super great tour! it's great to take a bit of the beauty of the land and of the local products. Mateo was full of information and very engaging, he shows he likes what he does! it's totally worth it seeing the sunset from up there!😉
Excellent sunset tour of Mount Etna

Alexandra_L, Aug 2022
Such an amazing tour with our guide Giorgio! He was spirited and so knowledgable. We learned so much about the science of volcanoes, history of catania and also had so much fun! Not to forget the delicious food and wine consumed at the farm. Would recommend it!
Breathtaking, educational, and tasty
summer_w, Jul 2022
Our tour guide Mateo was lovely -and very accommodating to our pace. He was also a great driver. We enjoyed the tasting room experience and our other favorite part was taking photos by the craters.
Amazing experience
Aneta_W, Jul 2022
Definitely recommend, Simone our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. The whole trip was fun and definitely would do it again.
Best Tour Ever!!!
Martin_S, Jul 2022
They tour was wonderful. Giuseppe was a phenomenal tour guide. He is very knowledge of Mt. Etna and the surrounding area. We had about 8 of us in the tour. Our first stop was a cave that had been formed from the lava flow. Then we went to Enteca Dell'Etna, it is a farm that grows olives and grapes. We did a little tasting of the different olive oils and wines. The volcanic ash that the olives and grapes give the oils and wines a different taste (better than other wines). Then we made our way up to Etna. Here we went into an inactive crater and was explained the different color of rocks. Then we climbed up another crater to watch the sunset. The sunset was great (probably better in the spring and fall when not so much haze). I recommend this tour to everyone!!! We will definitely be coming back.
Do it!
Anneleen_M, Jul 2022
The tour was amazing and full of surprises. Definitely would recommend this to everyone! We learned so much more than we expected.
Beautiful land with a great guide
Daria_G, Jun 2022
Simone was a great guide. He shared with us his genuine passion for the land, Sicily and Etna. The landscape is beautiful. Definitely recommend
The lava caves were way...
Jordan_B, Jun 2022
The lava caves were way cooler than I expected! The tasting from the local winery was fantastic, got to try some wine, olive oils, jams, and honey. Over all a wonderful evening
A solid all round tour...
Rob_F, Jun 2022
A solid all round tour with a bit of everything included. Food and drink a tasting was really interesting and well done. We spent a good amount of Etna walking around and watching the sunset. If you’re expecting more of a ‘hiking’ experience then this probably isn’t the right tour for you. We loved this trip however, as Dan made it for us. He’s a funny bloke that made the experience worthwhile
We were picked up right...
ReidunBeate_O, Jun 2022
We were picked up right outside the door by the guide. he was very nice and had a lot of exciting knowledge about ethna which he told through the drive up. first stop was a hollow eye of the lava, we got helmets, lanterns and were well taken care of. after that we had a great tasting experience at a vineyard that had lots of exciting history. we drove on to a parking lot and went up to some of the craters, the view was beautiful and the walk up was just right! this was a great experience and one of the highlights of our vacation. this trip is really recommended by me and my friends!
Incredible sunset tour to Mount Etna
Darby_D, May 2022
Wow! What an amazing tour/trip! Giusseppe our tour guide was super knowledgeable and a fantastico storyteller. He made the trip so much fun. After the lava cave, we stopped at a winery and taste tested wine, olive oil, honey, and local liquor. Then we headed to the tallest crater for sunset. Was breathtaking! 10/10 would recommend this to anyone visiting Catania/Sicily.
Saving a cloudy day
Lillian_W, May 2022
Walking on crater and visiting lava cave The rest of group friendly and spoke English! Driver was expert in negotiating busy traffic Wine tasting was fantastic with view and history. Pistachio pesto was great!
Great tour
Hope_k, May 2022
Great experience, we had Alessandro who was very knowledgable and engaging. We really enjoyed the tour and would to others. The wine/foods tasting was a nice addition.
A nice enough tour but nothing out of the ordinary
Hanna_S, Sep 2021
We had a really nice guide on our tour and overall a nice half day tour to Mount Etna. For what you get I do think the price is a bit too high though and I would recommend just going with the punlic bus (or if possible by private car) and reading up on the topic beforehand. All places we visited are easily accessible without a guide as well. Be aware that it says „tasting of honey, wine OR other local products“ - we did mistake this to mean that the tour would definitely include a wine tasting (which was our bad of course, though, just as an info in case you expect the same). There was a honey tasting in a tourist shop which was nice enough but not anything you could not have experienced in another shop selling local produce. Mount Etna is breathtaking of course and absolutely worth a visit, so if you think a guided tour is the best way for you, go with it, they are all roughly the same price and the same programme it seems. I personally did expect a bit more though after the other reviews.
Overall a good tour, with magnificent views
Andrej_g, Sep 2021
Our tour guide Giuseppe was very kind and knowledgeable, even though this was his first month touring. It is a nice tour, but do not expect to much from the caves and a lot of trekking.
Would recommend
Alessandro_M, Aug 2021
It was a fun and enjoyable tour. It was also very interesting thanks to our guide Danilo, who conducted the tour in two languages very well.
Best experience ever
Simona_A, Aug 2021
We really enjoyed our tour, the guide was very polite and friendly. We asked for shoes and guide also brought us socks, so it was very nice gesture :)
Andrea is super!
Eleni_C, Jun 2021
Andrea was the best guide ever. Talkative, spoke both English and French very well, professional, fun, accommodating. We would certainly recommend the tour but in particular the tour with Andrea!
Nice tour
Boots_T, Jun 2021
The tour was nice. Our guide Andrea was knowledgeable and animated. Going up to the old craters was lovely.
Would do again if I had the opportunity!
Aidan_P, Sep 2020
Shame we went on a cloudy day but our tour guide Andrea was brilliant and had a lot of knowledge on the area and was able to answer any questions we had, the volcano itself was amazing and the wine tasting is a must do!
Super trip
Jayne_L, Aug 2020
We had a lovely trip up to mount Etna on our last day in Sicily. Our guide Giuseppe was super helpful and informative. Thank you
Highly recommended
Karen_S, Aug 2020
Great tour of the Etna craters, honey and wine tasting and an awesome sunset. Luigi ,our guide, who came to pick us up from our hotel was very knowledgeable. He loves his work and passed on so much information about the history and volcanic activity of Mt Etna.
