    I absolutely loved the tour! Our guide was super friendly, had great (English) communication skills and was very informative. As we needed to do a covid test (for our flight back home) in the early morning before the tour (pick-up 8.15/8.30h), our guide suggested we could come over to their second stop (to buy lunch before the tour) at 9.30h. We just made it with a taxi! The guide bought our lunch, because we payed for the taxi. Which was very kind of him! Also he has knowledge about (medicine) plants. This was awesome!

    Jó ár-érték arány jellemzi ezt a túrát. Nagy előnye, hogy Catania-bol visznek oda vissza. Ha a gerincre vagy minél magasabbra akarsz jutni, akkor nem ezt a túrát válaszd. Ezen látható a Vál Di Bove kalderaja,de nem a csúcs és a környéke. Ehhez szállást kell foglalni fenn, a Refugio Sapienza-n

    Great tour to see Mount Etna! Our tour guide Andreas was great and very insightful, he answered all our questions and told us many things along the way. Definitely bring something warm to wear. We went mid August and it was about 17 degrees and windy, a lot of people had to buy sweaters in the end, especially if you plan on taking the funicular higher up. The tour of the bee farm was also nice but definitely not the highlight of the trip.

    Great tour. Maybe a little less Etna and more Taormina. The honey shop should be skipped and therefor we could have more time in Taormina.

What people are saying about Sicily

We had a perfect day with Salvo (Salvatore) who was such a friendly and funny guide which a huge knowledge of Etna and its surroundings. We booked the cable car tour to the Etna which costs additional 67 Euros but its very much worth the money, would highly recommend! We also went into a Lava cave and a local Wine, Honey and Olive Oil producer where you can buy these items if you like to. Last stop was Taormina which is one of the most beautiful cities. The ride between these locations was very informative because Salvo is such a passionate Sicilian who really enjoyed our whole group of 8 people from all over the world. Can definitely recommend to book this tour! Thank you Salvo for this great day :-) Greetings from (cold) Duesseldorf!

Gaetano is a very kind and experienced person who accompanied us all the way, telling us in detail every single aspect of the place. Highly recommended for those who want to spend a different and fun day!
