This tour was the highlight of our trip! It was so well organized and our guide, Joseph, was very kind and knowledgeable. The ATVs are very easy to ride and and the whole journey was full of beautiful sights and scenery. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for an exciting way to tour Mount Etna!! Also, our guide picked us up and dropped us off right at our hotel which was extremely convenient!

Great fun long trip! There is a lot of driving on the road but seeing the villages we drove through and the grapevines were worth it. The meeting point on get your guide is wrong. It is a bit past the Gorge and entrance on your right. You drive by a bunch of ATVS. You do not need to bring a change of clothes unless when you’re done you want to get out of your dusty clothes. They do provide an air pressure gun to help get the dust off. Bring water bottles and a backpack to put your stuff in.
