Awesome afternoon and evening. Was amazing to go 2800 ft up the volcano and see the many craters, beautiful landscapes and wildlife. The sunset was incredible and one of those experiences you will remember for a lifetime.
I would advise you wear very sensible shoes (trainers or hiking boots) as you will be walking over the volcano and mountain and can be very unstable coming down! Also wrap up warm as although it was 30 degrees at the foothills, up 2800ft is very windy and wind chill probably brought temp down to 10 degrees.
The restaurant at the end of the tour was a charming mountain lodge with delicious (but small) a la carte menu with a choice of three starters and three mains. Service very good seeing as they were serving 40 guests all at the same time.
Only constructive feedback would be that our guide could have been a little more informative to the group when taking us up the Volcano (by foot and jeep). He was very friendly but would have been great to hear more facts and information about Mount Etna.
The sunset trip is definitely a must do.
The sunset was beautiful and worth seeing. My only criticism is that you should be prepared for the climb and the cold. If you are older the climb may be a little rough as well as the drive back down. The guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating and helped me back to the off road bus when I found it difficult walking.
It certainly was an experience but unfortunately it was misty at the top of Etna so got NO view. You travelled to the top in jeep/buses, very bumpy and dusty. It was interesting to see the craters and lava but in our case with the mist around, it was a lot of money for very little.
