Fantastic day with experienced guide
Jul 2020
Great experience and fantastic day! Pick up location was good and on time. Our guide Giovanni was very informative and knowledgeable and taught us interesting facts about the nature and the volcanoes. Time spent on Etna was great with some relaxing walking on the extincr craters and through a lava cave. For lunch we had a great time at the winery with authentic Italian starters and a main meal. I like to eat, and therefore I was very satisfied with the quantity and quality of food. The wine from the local volcanic soil grown vines was delicious! We did a tour of the beautiful winery which had some outstanding timber wine barrels. The visit to the Gorge in the afternoon is not to be missed, with some remarkable rock formations. We were so happy to have chosen this tour and recommend it very highly.

Great!
It was a great experience. It lasts the whole day and we get to know a lot of stuff about Etna (erruptions, geology). The tour guide was very experienced and funny. Us two were the only foreigners (not Italian) and he was still talking all the time in english. When they were talking in italian, he let us know everything so we wouldn’t feel left out.
The lunch was delicious (you can decide between 3 kinds of pasta), we also got wine and water.
At around 15.00 we went to Alcantara Gorge. It was full of people, but we were there for around one hour. This part of tour was not guided (only few words in the begining) so we could experience it on our own.

A day full of unforgettable
We had a full day tour to Etna and Alcantara gole. Everything went very smoothly with no rush and no delays. Our tour guide Denise was attentive and told us lots of interesting stuff about the region, its geology and history. Definitely advise this tour as a perfect introductory tour to the region around Catania!

Oct 2019 • Solo
The experience was full of good information. The weather was beautiful and our guide Giuseppe did a great job showing us Mount Etna. The best part about the tour is you get to see the other side of Etna away from the tourists. No worries about finding your way on your own. Luch was included which is a plus and a beautiful ending cooling off in the water.

Classic Experience Etna and Alcantara
Oct 2019 • Friends
The whole trip was great from start to finish. Our tour guide Denise, collected us up from the designated point (only a minute walk from where we stayed in Catania). The group of 8 people + Denise was a good company, we had many laughs throughout the day.
Denise was super informative and the tour didn't involve too much walking.
Would definitely recommend!
