    Fun and interesting trip up the Etna slopes. Very well-organised! Small group (eight people) and a knowledgable, engaged guide. Tour isn't too long or exhausting and gives a good impression of mount Etna's might

    They picked me up at the hotel on time. Itbwqs a 2 minivan tour. The guide talked to us via walkie talkie. Daniele was really funny. Melania was our driver, she speaks perfect english, french. The Etna is impressive... we walked an hour on an easy trail over lava trails.. (thabks god it was easy. )Up there is really chilly... take warm clothes and long trousers. With a good pair of gym shoes is enough. It is a must do in Catania.

    Very well organised tour. Daniele as a quide and driver - perfect. Impressed by his big knowledge and good approach to visitors of different skills and information about the place. Full recommendation for other turists.

    We had a very knowledgable, fun tour guide who explained a lot about the volcano and the surrounding area. I learned a lot! We were picked up from the hotel and were driven to the refuge by a minibus together with a very small group. We went for about an hour of hike there, looked at the different formations and learned a lot about recent eruptions. Then we had some free time to explore the area. After that we went to see a lava cave and Valle del Bove. We got helmets for the cave and upon request they provide hiking boots as well, everything included in the price. I say if you want to see the volcano but don't want to commit to a whole day of trekking, this tour is for you.

    Loved the tour! It was well-organized, informative and very fun. We hiked to craters through the snow, explored a lava cave, saw several enormous lava rivers and stopped for some delicious hot chocolate YUM! An incredible time!

    Really enjoyed this tour. The weather was great and our guide Filippo really knew all there is to know about the volcano providing information in an interesting and friendly manner. Great value for money. Viator also provided trekking shoes free of charge. Highly recommended.

    It was enjoyable but very easygoing and light. Just brisk walking really and I was expecting a bit harder and tougher. Good for families with kids.

    Our trip with Filipo to Mount Etna was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Filipo was an excellent guide knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about the mountain. He took care to ensure everyone was looked after in the group. Thanks so much Colette and family Xx

    I believe this is a must-see if one is in the Catania area. There are many charming places with great food, but there is only one Mt. Etna. Our guide, Filippo, was extraordinary. He knows every scientific fact about Etna, combined with outstanding communication skills and unmistakable Sicilian charm and passion. Who could ask for anything more?
