This was an amazing tour. Our tour guide Roberto was exceptional. Lots of knowledge and very personable. This was a small group tour
with six people. Hiking was easy with lots of rest stops as explanations of the Etna were provided. Lunch was very good with a hardy
sandwich, wine and dessert.

I am so glad I decided to take this tour. Although there is walking up and down hill involved, it was worth the effort. Our guide really knew about the volcano because he is involved in monitoring potential eruptions and he provided information in a way that was entertaining. The lunch afterwards was good as well. For the price, I think it was a great value. Take comfortable, no slip, enclosed shoes and layers because it is cooler at the higher elevation.

This tour was a great way to get an overview of Mount Etna! Our driver was very knowledgeable and I dont think there was a question we asked that he couldnt answer. Its an easy walk once youre on Mount Etna and you get some great views. The included sandwich and drink is a great idea and gives you a chance to sit and chat with fellow group travelers and your team leader. Hotel pick up and drop off is a nice addition as you can sit back and relax for the whole day.

I loved every minute of this tour. The weather wasn't great so we couldn't get too close to the Etna. However, we walked around for 2 hours and our guide Paolo told and showed us so many cool things. It was definitely my favourite part of my Sicily trip. Highly recommended for sure!!

An excellent and informative way to understand more about Mount Etna's history, including the previous eruptions and the lasting impact they have had. We learnt also about basic geology which was amazing and hiked through craters which was more challenging than I initially thought. The tour is not explicit about whether a trip to the summit is included - it is not - which we found disappointing as we had expected to see it. The tour guide, Roberto, was knowledgable and had a warm personality which we welcomed.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of interesting information on Mt. Etna and volcanoes in general! The group size was perfect and we really enjoyed the day.

The only negative was that the tour was quite disorganized beforhand - I had to call several times before I was given a meeting point, and the tour started late without any communication that it would be running a bit late.

Viator got everything lined up for the day - nice-1.
Our guide, Roberto, collected us from out hotel Bel Soggiorno. We were a party of 8. Roberto was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable, and easy going. We all enjoyed the drive up to the lava fields. The lava fields themselves were fascinating. Roberto's commentary was perfect and he answered all our questions confidently. The light lunch with wine was simple and enjoyable. A most enjoyable day. The cave visit was slightly disappointing - very interesting, but quite small.
