This tour was really exciting. The ride on the Circumetna train gave us a real chance to see the countryside and Mt. Etna. Unfortunately as we arrived at the mountain, the weather had changed for the worse and the gondola was shut down due to high winds. We were transported up the mountain in an all terrain 28 passenger bus, which was quite a ride. It was very foggy, windy, and started to rain so we chose not to continue on to the top of the crater. There was about a 45 minute wait for the bus to take everyone back down, but we made it safely.

The Alcantara Gorges were stunning and Mount Etna was impressive. Although it was a warm day, we got caught in a sleet storm at the summit, so the walking tour of the craters was cancelled. Luckily they hire ski jackets for 3 euros which came in handy as we were wearing summer clothing. Still worthwhile doing, but best come prepared for all weather conditions.

A great experience - A full day out - the highlight is the Summit of Etna but the whole day was fun. The AirCon on the coach was a god-send

Great trip. so many things to see, so many things to remember. Especially the trip on Etna Mountain was very interesting and the guide was great.

This is a long day 10hours but worthwhile. Our guide Alfredo was knowledgeable and enthusiastic with a great sense of humor. The Circumetnea railway ride is a real plus but the Alcantara Gorges trip slightly irrelevant. Mount Etna is well organized and well worth while but, as advised, not for people with heart or breathing problems. I would happily recommend this trip to all fit and healthy people

I only wish I'd paid to ascend Etna on the day...
It was a wonderful trip, the villages were beautiful to travel through and the train, although very very hot and uncomfortable, offered us the chance to view Etna and the flat lands from a different view point.
The guide was excellent and knowledgable

This was one of the best paid day excursions I have ever been on - wonderfully organised and fascinating. The bus driver Francesco was an artist who drove down scenic small roads with breathtaking aplomb. Elizabeth's commentary was very informative and the experience of climbing up Mt Etna's slopes was wonderful. An unforgettable experience that I would highly recommend to anyone. One bit of advice - if you book directly via Viatour don't forget to give them your hotel address so that they can collect you.

This was a very nice tour of Mt Etna. Unfortunately, we could not reach the summit due to inclement weather, but it was still very interesting to visit. Even at the altitude we were at, it was very windy and cold I went in October, so if you go outside of the summer months be sure to dress warmly. I thought the Alcantara Gorges was an unnecessary stop and not very interesting, but that is just my opinion. The train ride was very nice. Alfreddo was our guide and he kept us very well informed during the day trip. I would recommend it and would go again if I have the opportunity in the future.

Enjoyable trip a long day traveling if your not a good traveller. We enjoyed the trip and the scenery well worth the cable car journey. The food in the store at the base was very tasty.

All in all, a worthwhile trip. However, I feel you could eliminate the visit to the Alcantara Gorges. Also, I think there was too much time allotted for the Mount Etna ascension.

The Alcantara Gorges and the Circumetnea Railway Ride weren't that impressive but Mount Etna was amazing. You simply must climb this giant when you're in Sicily!

I actually really liked this tour. The tour began with a visit to a nature center that had a river running through it, and you could see really neat volcanic rocks. Not really Etna and so maybe not for everyone but I enjoyed it. We then took an old fashioned narrow gauge train around part of Etna, the train was not air conditioned being old fashioned but the windows let in a breeze and the views were beautiful. The bus ride partway up Etna was painless, and let us out in a touristy area with many restaurants. I purchased the option to take the funicular and 4x4 further up. The funicular was fun to ride, although the windows were a little dirty which made taking pictures a little fuzzy. The 4x4 took us much higher, but we were still hundreds, if not a 1000 meters from the peak. It was still cool to wander around the mountain after getting out of the 4x4, but it would have been nice if there was an option to purchase a hike/guide to take us further up the mountain to the summit. Overall I liked this trip and would do it again.

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and it has given us a desire to return to Alcantara Gorges for a trip on its own.
We like visits to Volcanoes and would recommend this even if you only want the Scenery from the trip there and back

Great experience. Alcantara Gorges is just alright but Etna was really cool. Wish we had a little more time to see the smoking peak.

I so enjoyed visiting the Alcantara Gorge that lost track of the time and then lost my tour group. However, the local agents SAT were on the ball they hooked me up with another group and after some unscheduled activity I met up with my own group at Etna. Etna didn't put on too much of a show that day, but just seeing the surreal landscape, black ash with patches of white snow, was incredible. I can also now claim to have walked across a volcano crater not during an eruption, mind you. I was sorry that we did not get to to the actual rim of one of the active craters.

An exciting trip which goes through Alcantara Gorges. We visited that wonderful place and, in an end, we were late 3 minutes, to find that the coach left. I must mention that our guide was Santo who left us there as he did not count his passengers. Someone from the same company took us by car and raced us up to a crossway to catch the coach back. From that point up to the end our trip was gorgeous.

Good tour. Alcantara gorge very pretty and trip up to Mt Etna was amazing but be prepared for the cold. Circumetnea train was a bit of a train wreck. Train is crowded and hot and the trip pretty boring. Should be dropped from the tour as it's a waste of time.
