    We had a lot of fun on the tour. The pickup worked great and we had a great time. Our tour guide was Isabella and she was a 10/10. Her knowledge of Mount Etna is impressive and a pleasure to listen to. The wine tasting is highly recommended! The staff was super friendly and the wine was awesome! Anytime again ☺️

    The whole experience was just excellent! They came to pick (four of) us up in Augusta, which is 40+ kilometers from Catania to the south. They already earned a big plus with that, so we did not really mind that they arrived a bit late - and we were on holidays after all. And then Teresa showed up with her positive energy and attitude that stayed with us for the whole day! She explained a lot of things about Etna, life on Sicily, its history! Wine and lunch? Bunch of incredible appetizers and five wines - perfect; at the end we were all full! Perhaps a small minus was the van, as it was not really in the best shape - but on the other side, it gave us the real experience of Sicily, where people also drive a bit differently. :) - Would I repeat it? Definitely!

    Interesting to see the vegetation on the Etna, according to the eruptions. Unfortunately, the guide came 30 minutes later than agreed and we did not visit a lava cave, although this was in the program. Also 2 groups were put together, who only visited Etna and we who had booked lunch with wine tasting. So we needed a lot of time picking up and handing over the other group. The typical Sicilian lunch consisted only of starters ... But then we asked if we could still get typical pasta and got it. (First at no extra charge !!) It was super delicious !!!!
