What people are saying about Nicolosi

There are no words to describe how incredible it was. It was spectacular. The views and the information about Etna was very detailed. Our tour was a private tour and our guide Marcello was unbelievable. He is super professional, very kind and sweet. We traveled with 2 kids one an almost 2yr old and it was very hard to go up the Etna mountain with him but he waited for us patiently. My nine year old doesn’t like to get dirty but thanks to Marcello with his kindness and patience she ended up playing with the sand. We’re extremely happy and it’s an experience that we will never forget. Thank you so much Marcello. Worth all the money paid and highly recommend.
