Super guides with a strong expertise about Etna activity.
We were a 30 people group from different nationalities but they split the group into IT / EN which removes the language issue.

Very positively surprised by this tour. Great combination of spectacular views and contrast between volcano’s dark landscape and bright snow, blue sky and great sun light.
Our guide Vincenzo Greco was great with both much fun and knowledge sharing.
It is not just a hike on a volcano, but rather an adventure on an active volcano and you have to do it once in your life time to understand what it means. Go high enough (2,900 mt) to fill the heat of the earth in a quite cold landscape where sometime the wind will remind you how strong is mother nature!
I was hesitant to do it but I definitely recommend it. Better to be reasonably fit for this hike.

The guide was perfect, he was absolutely prepared, kind and high educated about Etna and vulcans. We have traveled a lot, saw a lot. I was in solo, but it was one of my best experience in my life! Thanks a lot!

Visiting Etna is an awesome experience. Unfortunately there were a couple of things we really didn’t like about this tour.
The pricing is a bit misleading. You pay for the tour and then you still have to pay for the gondola to the start of the trek. Why not just include that in the price?
Also we had quite bad weather conditions which is of course nobody’s fault. But with very windy and foggy conditions we didn’t really feel very safe on top of Etna. Especially with just a single guide for a group of 15-20 people. The tour also felt quite rushed. Might also have been because of the bad weather conditions.
Still visiting Etna is a must do. Probably unforgettable with great weather.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The title of the tour clearly says "only guide service". We do not include the transportation (30 Euro per person on the south side for the funivia or 45 Euro per person for the 4x4 vehicles on the north side) because many people start hiking already from the starting point at 1800 meters and meet the guide at 2500 meters (on the south side) or 2800 meters (on the north side) and skip the transportation part. In the description on Tripadvisor it is also written that the transportation isn't included and what the cost is. On the day of your excursion there were actually 2 guides for 19 people, Vincenzo and Nikos. We are sorry if you felt the tour was rushed, which seems a bit strange because during the tour the guides always stop often for explanations or give the time to drink some water or have a small pic-nic. Nevertheless we hope that you keep good memories about your experience on Mt. Etna and we hope to see you again some day with splendid sunshine!

an amazing experience loved by the entire family, the views were fantastic, the guides shared all the knowledge and were more than happy to answer all the questions. they were so friendly and amazing with the kids, which helped going up, as this is quite demanding if not used to altitude. But worth every minute. first part is done on a special 4x4 bus (about 45Euros on top of the guided tour) and then the guides take over and take you right to the edge of some amazing craters, one of them being the main crater, where gases are coming out all the time. highly recommend this experience, and definitely worth the investment (100 euros) a once in a life time experience.

Such a great Tour! Not only did we see several craters, the different lava flows of past eruptions and all the vegetation zones of the volcano, we also got all information one could ask for and the hike was super fun. Make sure to wear really long pants and socks and enjoy a fun run downhill.

We actually loved the excursion to Etna. The lunar landscape and walk-in in lava gravel felt surreal, and viewing the volcanic activity in action was exhilarating. However, the pricing of the trip was a scum for which there should be no place on TripAdvisor. We were charged EUR 55 / person for the trip which obviously seemed like a great deal. But when we showed up for the excursion we were asked to pay another EUR 45 / person for the 15 min trip up the mountain. Such lack of price transparency is fundamentally misleading to customers and outright cheating. Shame on this agency!

Dear Natalia, As it already says in the title of the excursion, the price listed on Tripadvisor includes "ONLY GUIDE SERVICE" and in the description it's mentioned clearly that the transportation of the off road vehicles needs to be paid on the spot, also mentioning the price of 45 Euro per person. 1 day before the excursion, we always send a personal reconfirmation to each of our guests (as we did for you as well), including all the information regarding the meeting point, the name and phone number of the guide AND also containing the following phrase: "Please note: On Viator/Tripadvisor you've booked for guide service only, the 4x4 vehicles are not yet included, as written in the description on Viator/Tripadvisor. Your can pay the 45 Euro per person for the transportation directly to the guide, preferably in cash, if not by card." So not only in the description on Tripadvisor you have all this info inside the description, but we also repeat it in our personal message to you. Talking about "misleading information" and "shame" is really misplaced in this case, sorry.
