What people are saying about Province of Catania

It was an unforgettable experience! With cloudy skies and very strong winds, we started on Mount Etna in April 2022. Luca, our guide, kept stopping in between and told expert and interesting stories about the special features that were about to be discovered. For me, this tour is one of the highlights of our stay in Sicily - even if it wasn't always pleasant during it. The forces of nature are clearly noticeable on the volcano: the wind almost blew us over again and again, lava dust was everywhere, and it was really cold. But it's all worth it: seeing the craters up close (the tours haven't gone directly to the crater rim for years, too dangerous), walking across the lava fields, sometimes feeling the heat coming out of the open crevices in the rocks - a great experience! And an extra compliment to Luca: Great tour, great guidance! Thanks a lot for this!

Very good trek. The quide Lucca was very informative, humorous and kind. He posed and answered all sorts of questions. We rented the trekking boots with Lucca and it was a very good decision. The vulcanic dust gets in virtually everywhere on you. :-)

The weather wasn’t great (pretty cold for May) but the guide Luca was excellent and made it a great day

Great experience. Very good, attentive guide. But you should be fit and sure-footed.

The guide was great, friendly and super informative.
