We loved this tour!! We were the only ones on the tour and Miguel did a great job of showing us a variety of volcanic areas and terrains. He made a few stops in order for us to experience more of the area (lunch and coffee at a local shop). This is one of the best tours we’ve ever taken.

The tour was awesome! Because it was December, we were the only two on the tour. The guide noted our clothing and brought an extra jacket for each of us to borrow which was so appreciated. We got great instruction driving and navigating around Etna. We got to check out a cave, a river, and some other really fantastic sites other than just the volcano. I will say, that we did not get to the top- which I expected because you can only hike all the way up there but if you want to ride to the top- this is not that. Overall, the guide was great and it was a super fun experience.

This adventure was absolutely amazing. I will remember it for the rest of my life. However this adventure is NOT for the slight of heart or body. I undertook this adventure with my wife and my two sons, age 29 and 31. They drove the ATVs, and loved every minute of it. As my wife and I are seniors, in reasonable good health, I know we would not have been able to drive this vehicles over this terrain ourselves. The guides were great, can't remember their names right now, but they were terrific. I highly recommend this adventure, however you better have excellent uppper body strength to handle these vehicles.

This was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! My wife and I has SO much fun and the scenery was breathtaking! You start about 90min away from the top of the mountain so you get to ride a long time on the quad which is fun. I drove and my wife sat behind me and we take some amazing pictures and videos! The ride is a mix of off and on-road.

What a blast! We had a great time. Our guide Deniss was wonderful. We stopped in certain areas and she gave us lots of interesting facts. Be prepared to get a little dirty. The trails were dry and dusty. But that's what off-roading is all about.

Met the guides all very friendly. We doubled up on the bike. We drove on and off road, some parts off road were a bit of a white knuckle ride, but absolutely thrilling. Scenery was breathtaking. Wear layers as the temperature at top is chilly. In fact gloves would be a good idea. Highly recommend

This was an amazing way to explore Mt Etna!! We absolutely loved this tour and we would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the region. Make sure to choose the 4.5 hour option because it allows you enough time to explore Etna. We had never driven ATVs before, but it was easy to pick up. Also make sure to wear close toed shoes, long pants, and bring a sweatshirt.

We we glad that we arranged a hotel pick up. We spent the day with our local guide, Denise, who was wonderful! This trip took us through various small towns, off-roading on various nature trails, and we even drove through a few small streams. The views were incredible and the experience was one of the highlights of our trip to Sicily!

I booked this trip as a surprise for my husband and we're so glad we did it! I arranged for us to be picked up from our hotel in Taormina. Everybody we met from this company was so friendly and we were given a bit of history of Etna before the tour. We were lucky to be the only ones on this tour, so we very much had a personal service. Our guide was Josef and he was an enthusiastic guide, keen to make sure we had the whole experience. We had a double quad, as I wasn't confident at riding one myself and we set off first through the valley, which is beautiful and very green and lush, before getting higher into the black lava soil of Etna. Josef stopped on the way to give us some information about the area and also took us to a cave that had been created in the eruption of 2002. When we reached the top, it was a bit surreal as the weather was noticeably cooler and the landscape was like nothing we'd seen before. There are a few cabins where you can get refreshments and souvenirs though you'd need to take a rucksack if you intended buying anything. Then we travelled back down a slightly different route, which took us through a forest. I think the tour was about 4.5 hours and we were very dusty but very happy to have had the experience! We went in July and I would definitely recommend sunscreen and sunglasses and be prepared to get a bit grubby. In our view, the best way to see Mount Etna!
