Very nice experience. Love it! The guide is kind and patient, and in time. Really commend! Tho maybe somehow little bit expensive compared with local economy.
I loved the sites here and it's definitely worthwhile seeing if you have time. The sites are incredible and I loved it!
Guide was an absolute legend, the most enthusiastic guide who thoroughly loved his job. Backed this up with great knowledge, if you go to Sicily to the Etna tour.
We really enjoyed the tour and the guide was very knowledgable on both sites.
At the summit 2950 m we had expected it to be cold - especially being October, but it was surprisingly warm and we didn't need all the layers we had been advised to wear. The lunar style landscape and views were amazing! I would love to go again.. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly pointing out the changing flora.. Honey tasting at Zafferana was interesting and Taormina just beautiful, would have been nice to have spent a longer time there, but in all, it was a very full happy day.
This is a great tour. I can fully recommend it. Especially with Giulia as guide.
This was a great trip. Floriana is a skilled and knowledgeable guide, adept at keeping four couples from four different countries informed and comfortable. It was great to be picked up and dropped off at our hotel Catania traffic is insane. We also took the cable car to the 3000m level and walked around the old crater. I would highly highly recommend doing this, even though it is an extra cost. The view and ambience at the 2500m level is like any ski lodge anywhere. The near-top of an active volcano is another world.
Fantastic tour. What a treasure Taormina is. There were. Options when we got to Etna. We chose to do the full Trip as far as one can go and it was really worth it. Don't forget to wrap up though as it was minus 2 at the top.
A fantastic tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, fun and a very good driver. She told us all about the different eruptions of Mount Etna, the local plants and other volcanic facts .We also visited a lava cave and local honey producers.
Taormina was beautiful - well worth a visit
The tour was great, full of new emotions ETNA VOLCANO and impressions. The guide FLO was amazing. Highly recommend.
This was an excellent tour and the guide was very informative and helpful throughout the day. At Etna you will want to go on the cable car and bus to the higher craters, which is 63 Euro's each, as it is along walk and there is no time, though only pre arranged geological trips can go to the very top. Combining the two in one day was busy, allowing us just 2 hours to see Taormina, which suited us but if you wanted to have a good look around a separate whole day trip would be better.
This day tour is one of the best! It packed everything into one day! It is a great value for the price. We climbed Mt Etna, explored a cave, got to taste local food wine, honey, olive oil, olives, pesto and spices, explored Taormina and sunbathed on a beach with refreshing cool water Ionian Sea. Our guide, Franco, was fabulous! He explained everything, guided us through the cave and on a crater hike and was very kind. The food tasting was one of the best with everything under one roof and no high pressured sales pitches. We loved it and bought a lot of items. We had enough time to do a little bit of everything. Amazing adventure!
I highly recommend this tour. It was a full day and enough time on Mt Etna, the caves, the tasting and Taormina. Very convenient that the guide was able to pick us up and drop us off at our hotel.
Brilliant tour, great host and stories, a really great day out :)
An unimaginable and scintillating trip o Mt Etna..do the whole gambit, take the cable car to the top and then the huge four wheel drive to the top...you will be awestruck by the beauty of the volcano. Walk around the crater and your world will turn topsy- Turvey by the magnitude of the view, the amazement of the size of the crater and the smoky bits that make you wonder, what is happening. Make sure you have plenty of water, good footwear and a camera ready to capture one of the world's most active volcano.....We can now tick this off our bucket list.
Regarding Taormina, nothing much to say except it was too crowded and thank God we only had a short stay there as it would have diminished our fabulous trip to Mt Etna
Giuseppe Prezzavento was a great guide. Full of knowledge. Etna was a great experience. The mountain was even grumbling every half hour or so with a great show of smoke, just to let everyone know she is still watching! We took the chair lifts up the mountain and then 4 x 4 to the walking area. Highly recommended.
Taormina, is a gem. Its a beautiful picturesque panoramic place, the people are wonderful, a must recommended place to see. The public garden is just beautiful and has a million dollar view of the ocean.
This tour was one of the best tours I ever had. Our tour guide was brilliant. Highly recommended
Marina our fabulous guide went above and beyond expectations. She knew her stuff and accommodated our requests all day. We need didn and #39;t go up to the top of etna but we and #39;re extremely happy with our view of the area. We loved the lava cave. It was fun. Taormina was beautiful as was Iosla Bella.
Our tour guide was flo and what a great day she gave us. Extremely knowledgeable on all things sicilian, full of interesting facts and so obviously in love with her home country. The walk up Etna was thrilling if a little windy! We chose not to take the cable car and were pleased we didn't as we would of missed out on flos excellent and informative guide on the way up there. We went for a lovely tasting session at an authentic sicilian farm next tasting honey wine and olive oil all of which was reasonably priced should you wish to purchase and then finally onto taormina a truly beautiful town with gorgeous streets good food and the most spectacular views.
Not only did flo give us a great guide but her recommendations of things to do in catania helped us to map out a visit to the markets bellini gardens and we loved the arancine and granita that was recommended to eat!! 10/10 thank you flo from Ben and Sarah
This was an excellent tour. It is perfect for people who have limited time in Catania as you manage to see a lot of the island's treasures in a limited amount of time. Our guide was very knowledgable, friendly, helpful and accommodated all our needs. He even when our of his way to returne my daughter's camera that had fallen out of her bag in the van. Recommend.
This was a great day for us! We were picked up and dropped off right in front of our hotel. When we got to Etna we could either go on a hike or ride the cable car and keep to the top. We chose to ride up and enjoyed the views from the top. We then went into a lava cave onthe mountain and a short Sicilian good tasting before heading to Taormina. We were given a few hours of free time here before returning home. This tour was the perfect mix of guided tours as well as personal time to explore. Our guide was very nice, knowledgeable, and fluent in multiple languages.
This was a wonderful tour and the highlight of our trip. Our guide, Franco, was very nice, knowledgeable and fluent in 3 languages - on the way to Etna, we heard and the history of Catania and the villages around Etna. The visit to Etna was amazing- we took the cable cart and snow cat up to 2850 meters and stood steps away from the lava flow - it was a once in a lifetime sight and worth the extra 90EUR. Important note: you should ask about renting hiking shoes at the box office if you don't have ones.
After, the visit to Taormina was beautiful and we heard a lot about the history from Franco. It would have been nice to have a bit more time as 2 hours was not enough to tour all the sights and relax in one of the restaurants there. In any case, it would be wise to pack some sandwiches as it is a long day and we didn't have time to stop for food.
I would recommend everybody to take this tour- it was the best!!! and ask for Franco :-
