If you don't just want to see the Etna volcano, which is a wonder of nature and fascinating anyway, but also want to learn more about the volcano, its formation, its life and the consequences and effects for the residents of the area, that's it in good hands on this tour. Our guide Enzo is really great. He knows a lot and answered all of our questions. He speaks perfect German. Coming from Sicily, he knows the area well. In addition to the natural wonder, we also visited an "apiculture" (beekeeper) and were allowed to taste delicious honey in different varieties. Enzo was a knowledgeable guide who took us on a discovery tour around and up Mount Etna in a relaxed and knowledgeable manner. Recommended!

Amazing experience, knowing a place full of history and emotion! Our guide Luigi was amazing, detailing every event that took place. Don't forget to bring a coat, because even in the summer it's cold up there!!! Our guide Luigi was wonderful, friend and has immense knowledge that we thank him for sharing with us.

Our trip to Etna was a wonderful experience! Andreas, our tour guide, was super friendly, motivated & had extensive knowledge. Andreas was fluent in 3 languages & was happy to translate the information into English, French or Italian. We booked the sunset tour, which I can only recommend !! The landscape was breathtaking & the twilight made the surroundings and the volcano appear very mystical. We were lucky that in the end the Etna began to spit high fountains of lava. Andreas took us to places where we could see this fascinating natural spectacle particularly well. The trip was really worth it & we were very, very excited about the crater landscape.
