Mount Etna was amazing but we had a problem with the organization. They forgot us 2 hours at the pick up point and in the end we could go to Taormina because of a problem with the car. Of course they gave us back a refund but I hope this doesn't happen often to other customers.

Great experience! Our guide Juli was perfect, communicating in english, german und serbian.

The two accompaniers Andrea for the Etna trip and Alessio for Taormina were very good. The organization leaves something to be desired but in the end the problems were solved.
