Well organized. Äthna at 2700 m offers a great view. Taormina is a very nice place where you could stay longer. A criticism that can be made is that GetYourGuide only gives the meeting point in Cefalu. So we left our hotel with the rental car at 6:16 a.m. to a nearby parking lot and paid € 16 for the day. That wouldn't be a problem if there hadn't been people from our hotel on the bus that came, who were picked up directly from there and dropped off on the way back while we had to drive on to the car. It would have been nice to let us know about this possibility.

A well organized trip. Reaching 3 thousand m. by cable car and off-road cars is an additional cost of about 70 €, but for 1900 (a bus arrives there, there is also an interesting crater. Taormina is beautiful.

The bus ride was designed like a tour of Sicily. The gondola ride and the additional jeep ride with a walk on Mount Etna was absolutely worth it !!!!

Travelers: wear warm clothes for Mount Etna as it makes 0 ° C in the cimay comfortable shoes
