We went up the Etna today with Davide and it was a great experience. Already in the car ride up Davide started explaining about the Etna and the importance to Catania and the surrounding area. We also had kids in our group and he also made sure he explained things for them and gave them plenty of fun facts. Everything was planned to perfection, we stayed in schedule without ever having the feeling of being hurried.

First class treatment by Go-Etna and especially Davide. All trips up the etna are expensive but this one was absolutely worth every cent.

Etna is beatiful, and the tour is perfect. If somebody is in Sicily this tour is a MUST.

The tour was precisely organized and executed. All the agenda points, content of the tour (which are listed in the introduction) are not exaggeration at all (no hidden prices, no staying in line for the cable car, everythin is shown to you, etc.). Our guides were Francesco and Christian (sorry, if I mispell). Both of them are speaking English and German fluently (in addition to Italian of course). They are funny, passionate and love to guide us, tell us everything, which may be interesting for us (history of the area; history of volcano; each and every plant species, which can be seen, etc.). They are fully professional and passionate. You do not feel that your group is the 1000th group for them or it is a „conveyor belt” thing for them. I am a "cheap" type of guy, but the tour worths every cents. My wife and me spent our honeymoon in Sicily, and it was the best event during our one week long holiday in Sicily.

Thank you Francesco and the whole GO-ETNA team!

Thank you Go -Etna team!

We really enjoyed our day trip to Etna 3000 m. The organisation was perfect. The gids of our group Christian and Francesco both English and German speaking gave us a lot of interesting information about history of Sicily and Etna. It was amazing experience also for our children getting so close to the craters and touching still evaporating surface there.

From seeing the craters up close to the three course meal it..Magnificent!
If you haven't done any trekking before i wouldn't worry, as i hadn't done much myself but it was surprisingly easy..apart from the wind! (there are challenging craters to go up but the main southeast crater was active so only went 2700 metres).
Also a special shout out to the Guides, both brilliant.

We just finished this day trip of Mount Etna and can not tell you how great it was. We had a beautiful morning and this was a very easy treck. The cars drop you off at the cable car then the cable car to the buses which leave you off at the base of one of the craters. You then walk around the ridge of the crater which is optional and can take your breath away literally due to the high altitude. After the tour you have the option to take the bus down or walk back down to the cable car. We chose to walk and found it very enjoyable. The walk is hard on the knees due to the slope and there were instances of slipping so if you are older I would suggest the bus as the walk was around one hour and fifteen minuets. We then visited a small restaurant with a beautiful view of Catania below. The lunch was one of the best I have had on one of these tours. Afterwards we had the ability to visit one of the lava caves along the road. Again this was optional as you can just stay in the car if you want. This is a very easy tour and we had many older people in the group. It is well worth the money as they do everything for you. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

We have a 4 year old son and I would have loved to go all the way to the top but you need to be older than 16, so we have to wait a few years. Looking what could be the next best option ( and there are plenty of options), I ended up calling Go-Etna. Friendly and very informative and with the 3000 meter it would not be a problem.

Although we still have a carrier and although my son still would fit in there, we were not very enthusiastic. Two years ago it would not have a problem. In the end there was not point that he even wanted to be carried :).

We were not staying in the area so we had a hour drive before we all met up at a local service station. We had time enough to get us a good coffee at the local shop.

There were 3 buses and people were divided on language, that worked out very nice. Up the Vulcano we went and during the drive we were getting fully updated about the region and the different villages.

Into the cable car next. It is a bit strange to see all kind of snow equipment but no snow. Skying on the Etna (in the winter) has been added to my wish list. It must be fun to be able to ski there.

We ended up around 2500 meter with the cable cars, after which we took the 4x4. At 3000 we arrived and The guided tour continued with visiting an old crater. We could see the eruption of a few days earlier still smoking.
Sadly for my son he could not see any lava. We prepared him for the fact that there would not be any but he was still a bit disappointed.

We had the option to walk back to the lifts but we decided to stay together and took the 4x4 back. At the lift station we enjoyed a drink and the cool weather. Down would be 35 degrees waiting for us.

Back at 2500 the cars were waiting for us and we went for a nice italian much at a local hotel/restaurant op de mountain.

Last part of the day was the visit to a lava cave. With helmets and torches we went underground which was very enjoyable. Needless to say that this was another highlight of the day for my son ( and his parents).

Nice drivers and staff, very knowledgable and fun. Very good english and german (probably also good Italian but that is something I could not check ;) .

No problem at all to recommend then

We took his tour on my 76th birthday - everything fine. The guides are experienced and knowledgeable mountaineers, with a great knowledge of English. They go up the cable car and in the 4WHD minibus, before taking us on a guided informative walk.

Some of the cheaper tours being sold just drive you to the base of the cable car, and leave you to take the transportation up. Normally we like to take our own time around museums etc, but for this walk at the 3,000 (almost) height, it was important to have a knowledgeable guide.

Go-Etna gave us a discount code because we took their tour. They are also a transfer company. We used them, and the discount, for a transgfer from our hotel in Catania to one in Syracuse. Sure, it was more expensive than taxi-train or bus - taxi, and a lot less hassle with suitcases and timing. We also used them (and the discount code) back from Syracuse to Catania airport. Everything was on time. I strongly recommend this company.

We did the Emotion 3000 tour last week and we are still thinking about what a nice day it was. It is run very smoothly and our guide Francesco really was what made it great. He tried so hard to make sure everyone was having a good time. Being so close to Etna and seeing the rock bombs erupted was on my bucket list😍. The lunch they served was incredible. Make sure you save room for the pasta and dessert they served after.
