    The whole experience was just excellent! They came to pick (four of) us up in Augusta, which is 40+ kilometers from Catania to the south. They already earned a big plus with that, so we did not really mind that they arrived a bit late - and we were on holidays after all. And then Teresa showed up with her positive energy and attitude that stayed with us for the whole day! She explained a lot of things about Etna, life on Sicily, its history! Wine and lunch? Bunch of incredible appetizers and five wines - perfect; at the end we were all full! Perhaps a small minus was the van, as it was not really in the best shape - but on the other side, it gave us the real experience of Sicily, where people also drive a bit differently. :) - Would I repeat it? Definitely!

    Interesting to see the vegetation on the Etna, according to the eruptions. Unfortunately, the guide came 30 minutes later than agreed and we did not visit a lava cave, although this was in the program. Also 2 groups were put together, who only visited Etna and we who had booked lunch with wine tasting. So we needed a lot of time picking up and handing over the other group. The typical Sicilian lunch consisted only of starters ... But then we asked if we could still get typical pasta and got it. (First at no extra charge !!) It was super delicious !!!!

    We had a good trip! The walk at the etna was nice and the lunch with wine-tasting was very good. Our table stood at the best place in the garden: we had a beautiful view at the wineyards and the sun made it perfect! The reason why I give 3 stars is that everything was in a rush that day and there was not many attention from the guide. We had an older man in the group who needed some help at the etna, but the guide was already downstairs. The drive to the etna was heavy en felt unsafe. We were dropped at the winery and had no idea where to go. The guide hadn't the time to take us to the right spot over there. The whole day felt like there was no time for us. So, we had a good day but more attention to your customers feels better.
