Mt Etna is a must see. Guide was very knowledgeable. Really enjoyed the wine tour, had a sampling of local foods...delicious!
Our private guide Francesco (hubbie and I were only guests for this tour) picked us up at our hotel right on time. He shared lots of interesting info en route to the base station of Mount Etna. I had no idea that there were completely different kinds of volcanoes. We elected to take the gondola to 7,500 feet and then the 4-wheel drive to the 10,000 foot elevation. Our alpine guide and volcanologist then led our party up to and around the rim of this crater - hubbie and I are both almost 70 yrs old, and not particularly fit but are proud to say that we kept up and enjoyed the entire experience. After descending, Francesco drove us to the winery Oro d'Etna - we were treated like royalty! I was a little concerned that we would be expected to buy cases of wine - not the case at all. We could not have been more warmly welcomed by Noemi and the owner of this enterprise. Of course, a variety of delicious wines were offered for tasting along with plates of nibbles that complemented each wine. We were also invited to sample the wonderful honey that they produce from their 900 bee hives. Several other products were also on offer. And we never felt any pressure to purchase - although, predictably, we did! You are guaranteed to enjoy a wonderful day if you take advantage of this tour. Lou from Canada.
What a great day we had with Natalie our guide. She was super knowledgeable and so friendly. Firstly we visited a lava cave which was super interesting. The trip to Etna was jaw dropping. We would highly recommend taking the cable car and 4wd bus to the top unless you are injured as even though its expensive its absolutely worth it. The views and experience are unparalleled. Its a good idea to take a light jacket and comfy walking shoes as its uneven terrain and even if its a warm day it can be cold at the top. After Etna we enjoyed seeing 2 wineries. The first we had wine and olive oil and dries fruit and honey tasting with the opportunity to buy. The second we had a lovely anti pasta platter huge and catered for gluten free and an abundance of wines to try. Such a great day, we would definitely do it again. Cant recommend Natalie enough for her patience, humour and enthusiasm.
Whilst my Girlfriend and I were not able to get to the top of Etna because the weather, our guide ensured we had a lot to do given the inclement weather. We explored the caves and their formations, we sampled some of the produce of Etna and we finally topped it off with wines and snack bits and at the vineyard, followed by a tour of the vineyard to understand their processes. A really day out even if we couldn't get to the top of Etna! :-
We were not prepared for such a cold day but the tour guys, both Andrea and Salvo as well as the trainees, were ready to provide us with jackets, gloves, and hats so that we wouldn't be cold. This tour was amazing and it was a truly enjoyable tour full of laughter. Excellent experience with them and will definitely book with them again. They were full of information and we really appreciated that. It was an excellent tour with Etna Tribe in Catania - thank you for making our day memorable!
Our guide Nando was very talkative, friendly and shared a lot of interesting infos about Mount Etna. He picked us up and dropped at our hotel. We had an amazing day, highly recommended tour!
Lovely day but I was expecting better with the wine tasting, it was more of a quick taste and nibbles then a sales pitch, worst of all we were bombarded by a cruise trip which overtook our table eating our food,
If I had the chance to do this again I would skip the wine tasting
It was a very interesting and amazing sight to see Mt Etna. The tour was well run and informative. Enjoyed the day and would recommend it.
Francesca our tour guide was brilliant very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed every minute of the tour and recommend taking the cable car up Mount Etna, the views were amazing!
Great tour! Weather for us was a little rough but it was in January and we were caught in a snow storm on MT. Etna. Despite the weather it was still amazing walking around a crater and walking inside a cave. The wine tasting was excellent as well! Our tour guide was very informative and always making sure we were safe.
