What People Are Saying About Catania
Carmelo is a very passionate nature guide who is very knowledgeable about the Mt. Etna environs and its history. We learned a lot and had an enjoyable day - thanks for the bonus Almond Granita too!
It was the only activity in Catania that we pre booked with a guide and it was well worth it. Julia fetched us from our hotel perfectly on time and was friendly and talkative, offering a lot of interesting information on Catania & Mt Etna. She is very entertaining and a fantastic guide. She even offered us advice on where to find the best local food in town, and we took her up on her recommendation and was not disappointed. It was a great morning and definitely worth it if you prefer to do things a little more structured. Great way to explore Etna the first time...
Me and my friend enjoyed this tour very much. Sadly there was no red hot lava to see, but oh well... it was still interesting to see all of that. Getting to 3km hight is a bit too expensive, but the view from there is really nice, maybe having more time to walk around there would be better. The guide was awesome. Funny, interesting and helpful. Told a lot about previous eruptions, and about Etna. Maybe it would be nice to hear some more local mythology stories. Also he gave a lot of tips what else to visit, where to get tasty food. The only sad thing was, that it was the last day we stayed in Catania, so there was not enough time in the day (and not enough space in our stomachs) to visit all places recomended by him. It would be very nice to visit Etna once again, maybe in a different season. :)
The guide picked us up on time and was informative, friendly and shared his knowledge willing - it was great. The only downside of the trip was the fact that it was only once I had paid my money that it was mentioned in the payment confirmation that I needed a voucher before I could go on the trip and that my receipt would not be enough. I only booked the trip the day before I was due to fly so had no chance of printing out any voucher and could not receive any of my emails in Catania. I had to phone the UK number which I fortunately took down to find out if I could cancel the trip as I had no voucher or go on the trip without a voucher. The young lady was extremely helpful and told me she would check and phone me back which she did within 10 mins with the news that I could go on the trip without the voucher. A bit stressful as you can't get yr money back if cancelled within 72 hrs of travelling so I would have lost £80 through no fault of my own.
Guilia, our guide was excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Picked up at hotel on time. So amenable. Guilia answered all questions and gave a very interesting running commentary about the history and geology of Mt Etna.
