Great value for money
, May 2019
We had a very knowledgable, fun tour guide who explained a lot about the volcano and the surrounding area. I learned a lot! We were picked up from the hotel and were driven to the refuge by a minibus together with a very small group. We went for about an hour of hike there, looked at the different formations and learned a lot about recent eruptions. Then we had some free time to explore the area. After that we went to see a lava cave and Valle del Bove. We got helmets for the cave and upon request they provide hiking boots as well, everything included in the price. I say if you want to see the volcano but don't want to commit to a whole day of trekking, this tour is for you.
Highly recommended

This is a great excursion that provides a good understanding of the workings of Mt Etna and how the surrounding communities relate to it. The guide was punctual, tremendously knowledgeable, and had an endearing sense of humor. Views from the top are spectacular. I'd venture to say that this morning trip was a highlight in a vacation that was not short of terrific things. Sturdy footwear is necessary to walk through solidified lava flows.

Loved the tour! It was well-organized, informative and very fun. We hiked to craters through the snow, explored a lava cave, saw several enormous lava rivers and stopped for some delicious hot chocolate YUM! An incredible time!

It was enjoyable but very easygoing and light. Just brisk walking really and I was expecting a bit harder and tougher. Good for families with kids.

I believe this is a must-see if one is in the Catania area. There are many charming places with great food, but there is only one Mt. Etna. Our guide, Filippo, was extraordinary. He knows every scientific fact about Etna, combined with outstanding communication skills and unmistakable Sicilian charm and passion. Who could ask for anything more?

The staff went to great lengths to ensure we knew exactly where to meet them for the pick-up. Our time was critical, as we had other committments afterwards, and this was appreciated. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative, and this made the trip up Mt Etna especially enjoyable. Altogether, a very enjoyable experience!!

Wonderful!! Our tour guide, Francesco, was really professional and knew everything about Mt Etna. She took us on a hike to several craters and volcanic holes and explained very clearly how those were formed. It was a very pleasant trip, and I would definitely come back to see the beauty of My Etna again with Francesco as our guide.
