Excellent tour and tour guide. Alessio was an amazing tour guide. He had so much history of the area and we learned so much from him. He also took time to get to know his customers and was so helpful with all our questions. He knew the best places to eat, explore, photo stops for the best view and was outstanding!! We highly recommend this mount Etna event with him as the guide. We have been on many tours around the world and this was the best!! 5 +++++stars!!

Authentic Sicily experience

We had the best local tour with Alessio, giving the authentic vibe of Sicily’s vibe and Mt. Etna. Thank you Alessio for being so approachable, kind and knowledgeable.
Fantastic guided tour of Mount Etna by Isabella

Our day tour of Mount Etna and Taormina was very enjoyable and efficiently organised. It was made even more fascinating due to our tour guide, Isabella. Isabella was so very knowledgeable about the geological aspects of volcanoes and specifically the history of the multiple eruptions over decades. Isabella was very informative also about the plants and flowers we saw. Our visit to the Greek theatre and the public gardens in Taormina was interesting. We would highly recommend this day tour, even though we didn't get to the summit due to the poor weather, it was still truly memorable.

A great day!! Alessio was a fun and knowledgeable guide. The flow and pace of the day was perfect. We made several stops on Etna, had a fantastic lunch, and plenty of time In Taormina. Alessio also gave lots of hints and advice about what to do on the island. Our family of 4 loved it.

Alessio has been a perfect guide for us. First we went to Etna and we received every explanations, then we had lunch in a very nice place where we ate typical sicilian food, and finally we enjoyed Taormina. We think the tour is perfect and very complete and we recommend to everybody.
Great tour

Spectacular!
Kristina_S, Jun 2021
This trip was magical. First stop in the morning was Etna. The drive up there was so interesting. Alessio made sure that we stopped at different sights to make sure we get to take beautiful pictures and a better understanding of the different eruptions. On our way down, we stopped at a gorgeous house that produced their own oils and honey but also wine. I definitely recommend indulging in some delicious treats there. Shortly after we took a lunch break enjoying some authentic Sicilian pizza. It was delicious! To end the already perfect day, we lastly drove up to Taormina and the highest point to take pictures of the beautiful sea. Last stop of the day was a stroll through the picturesque streets of Taormina where we visited the antique theatre, a must see. I definitely recommend this trip and Alessio was so nice and welcoming, explaining everything so patiently. A must when you visit Sicily!!
Amazing tour!

I did both the Baroque Shades of Sicily and the Mt. Etna and Taormina day tours with Alessio as my guide. They were fantastic! Alessio is so knowledgeable of the different time periods, the architecture, and the history of Sicily. I learned so much. Alessio is very attentive and made sure I didn’t lose my footing when we were walking around one of the craters at Mt. Etna. He also knows the best places to stop for pictures, cafe, and food (also all places with nice restrooms). And he is an excellent driver. Sometimes, I suffer from motion sickness on really windy roads, and I had no issues since his driving is smooth. I highly recommend this tour and tour guide. When I come back to Sicily, I will reach out to him first to see which tours are available.
Great tour!

Eine wirklich hervorragende Tour mit vielen tollen Eindrücken. Alessio, unser Guide war sehr professionell und sympathisch, er hat während der gesamten Tour sehr viel Interessantes über die Insel und den Vulkan erzählt. Da der Vulkan am Tag unseres Besuches geraucht hat, waren unsere Kids natürlich noch beeindruckter. Wir waren von dieser Tour sehr begeistert und empfehlen sie daher natürlich wärmstens weiter. Ebenso unseren Guido, der übrigens perfekt englisch spricht.
Muy Recomendable
