    Marco our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very funny. A trip of 8 and I think everyone’s needs were looked after. The lunch and wine tasting left me and my friend underwhelmed. I requested gluten and corn free and unfortunately it happens often and happened here too that I get a corn bread supplement. The main course was a cauliflower pasta and it was a pasta with a cauliflower under seasoned with little/no dressing. The trip to Alcantara river was amazing! All the facts Marco told us about the Mount Etna were super interesting!!

    First of all: The guide Toni did a great job. However, there is a deduction because the tour took place even though it was pretty clear that the weather was not cooperating. Some things were therefore shortened, which of course was ok. The program itself has a good concept, and all in all it is easy to do. Toni explained professionally and entertainingly throughout the day.

    Die Tour war klasse organisiert! Nachdem morgens alle 5 Leute aus unserer Gruppe eingesammelt wurden, sind wir zuerst zum Weingut der Etna People gefahren. Dort konnte jeder Wanderschuhe und Jacke für die Tour ausleihen und umziehen, wenn nötig. Die Gruppen wurden super zusammen gestellt. So waren die Leute in unserer Gruppe um die 30 Jahre alt. Unser Guide Ezio, war Klasse! Er konnte uns vieles über die Geschichte der Gegend und zum Leben um den Ätna erzählen. Zusätzlich haben wir etwas off-road die Umgebung erkundet und Ezio hat auch darauf geachtet, dass wir nicht mit den anderen Touri-Gruppen unterwegs sind - vielen Dank dafür! Der Ätna war sehr beeindruckend und wir haben viele kleine Krater entdeckt und haben erfahren, wie diese entstehen. Am Nachmittag sind wir dann noch in die Alcantara Schluchten gefahren, was sehr beeindruckend war. Wir hatten kurz Zeit die Schluchten etwas zu erkunden. Insgesamt ein sehr gelungener Ausflug mit einem super Guide!
