We had a double decker bus, and we felt there were too many people on this trip. That was not so important at Etna, but at the Alcantara Gorge the visit was rushed, there was a delay getting tickets and it was slow moving around the narrow paths because of the numbers. We couldn't hear the guide, either as we were too far away. The train ride was excellent- we were fortunate with the weather and the views of Etna, the countryside and the lava fields were stunning. I would have liked more detailed information on the geology of the area.
The visit to Etna was interesting. We didn't go to the top however, as it's very expensive and the clouds had descended. We were disappointed with the quality at the Refugio- staff were pleasant, but the toilets were very dirty. The restaurant at the far end of the car park is much nicer, and less expensive, with clean toilets! Back to Taormina by 5.30. An enjoyable day.
Hello, thank you for your feedback.
You have travelled during the peak of the season and it is normal to find huge crowds during this tour.

We send you our warmest regards.

Franco was an excellent guide. Very informative & made sure everyone who paid for extras was taken care of. Loved the train ride, the cable car/Jeep and guide at the top of the volcano. He was also excellent.

Went on this tour with high expectations and after a slow start it really delivered.
A long day out but the trip up Mt Etna on the cable car and 4x4 with a guide at the crater truly is bucket list material.
Being on an active volcano in Sicily is something you will never forget and so this is the one tour you must do (and is actually great value also)
Great tour and the whole family thought the same (not always easy!)
I thoroughly enjoyed the day and overall good value. but the guide wasn't very good at all. He gave us about 10 seconds notice to get off the train. The 6 euro charge for Alcantara Gorge should be on the mentioned on the description and also what it includes. This seems to have suddenly gone up from 1.50. The guide made it sound as though it was just for the lift down to the gorge whereas it was actually the entrance to the beautiful gorge and the walk round the gardens. It should also be made clearer that the walk is difficult for the less able. I needed some assistance in places.
It should also be made clearer that if you just choose the foothills on Etna, most of the 3 hours is spent not very productively in overpriced cafes. You can see two craters and it is worth the walk up there and also for the view but it is is very cold up there so chances are you will spend time in the cafes. It should also be made clearer that if choosing the higher altitude one, it is substantially cheaper to prebook this rather than adding it in resort (£42 v 60 euros)
We absolutely loved the opportunity to climb to the highest accessible point of Etna - what an experience! This tour made for an easy and enjoyable visit to the volcano with younger children, but the morning program was not really worth it. The Alacantra Gorge was moderately interesting, but the Circumetnea train is a waste of time - perhaps SAT could simply cut this portion of the tour? Particularly in the summer? It was a hot and miserable unventilated hour on a train that seemingly got us nowhere. And because of these distractions, our time at Etna was rushed unnecessarily. Long story short: everyone who takes this tour wants Etna, so please give it to them: cut out at the very minimum the train and perhaps the Gorge as well. If SAT could offer a Etna only tour with max ascent option that would be much better, but I don't believe they do.
The time on Mt. Etna was about right, but we had to keep moving to get everything in and did not have lunch. The guide really didn't do much for us. The railroad was okay, but we were all confused about where to get off. The Gorges were a huge disappointment. You aren't given a map or shown one about the options of where to go to see the gorge. I ran up and down and saw at the end that there was a way to go to the bottom pool, but without directions at the beginning, there was not enough time to do it. There were too many people stuffed on the bus...then at the few gorge viewings to really see anything. if you do this, and I recommend that you look for another tour, perhaps another company...take a sack lunch to eat on the bus.
We loved this experience but the bus ride was just too long for my husband and I to sit through. We did venture up to the summit of Mount Edna and we're prepared that the temperature would drop at the top so we dressed warm. Unfortunately we were very surprised by the strong gusts of wind...I could not catch my breath at all so we had to turn around and head back down.
I did this trip on my own as my friend wasn't well . This was no problem at all - a fantastic trip really well organised . The views from mount Etna were amazing every aspect of this trip was really well organised . I'm glad I chose to do the extra trip up the cable car and in the jeeps around the cratorsv . The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful . A very early start but a wonderful day .
