We went offseason in mid February, essentially had a private tour to Mt Etna. Arrived at the office with the address provided, buggy was already out front ready to go when we got there, tour guide met us out front and was very friendly! Speaking fairly good english, he brought us inside to give us more info and have us sign some papers and offered restroom before we left. He showed us quickly how to operate the buggy and seatbelts. We jumped in the buggy and followed him in his truck through town until we got to the offroad part. He would stop every now and then the check on us and bring us to points of interest for info/history/pictures, etc. at the top we stopped for coffee and bathrooms then went to a small cave where he provided helmets/flashlights. The cave was interesting to see how it formed but was small. Afterwards we took some other offroad trails and had a lot of fun. Rode back through town and back to office, bathroom offered again to clean up. Well worth the money!!!

Vincenzo was an excellent guide. He ensured our group stayed together and that everyone was able to keep up and manage the climb. He explained how the craters have been created and Just how quickly this can happen. Also how the volcano is ever changing and during the climb must be attentive to the mountain changes to be safe. We experienced a few higher level explosions while on the summit and were quickly but safely taken down the side to remain safe. All the other guides knew Vincenzo and said he was the youngest guide.

This was really an off-the-road experience. The buggy was ready, perfectly functioning and completely safe. You are accompanied by a professional person who explains you how to drive and also something about the environment. You see the Etna environment from really very close. Pls note that the start and ending point is not in the city center of Catania, but a bit outside. A taxi ride costs 40 euro one-way. For me, after 4 hours driving, I had enough of the noise of the buggy.

Well organized tour, some waiting in line for the 4x4 buses both up and down, but not extremely long. Very knowledgeable guide, told us a lot about volcanism in general and Etna in particular. He also adjusted his pace to make sure I can keep up, as I was by far the oldest member of the group. We were also lucky to have clear and sunny weather, though it was biting cold and extremely windy at the top. Overall, a very nice (and tiring) experience.

We saw so much more and got so much closer than we even imagined!! Our guide Daniele was amazing - so kind and so knowledgable. A must for anyone who is in the area! Be wary - our original trip was cancelled due to bad weather (mid October) so make sure you have an alternative day you can postpone too so you aren’t disappointed. Also - bring gloves and wear more layers than you think!!
