What people are saying about Province of Catania

The tour was an awesome experience, mostly thanks to our very knowledgeable & friendly guide who explained so many things about volcano, nature around and even partly about Sicily and Sicilian people. We were 6 in total + the guide. We did not have the best weather as there was a very strong cold wind and partially cloudy, but we enjoyed and got to see so much anyway (including some awesome views). Highly recommending to anyone who is either not keen / cannot to walk / hike much around Etna or the weather forecast does not sound very good - this way on/off tour via jeep is the best!

Very interesting, informative and fun trip. We had Orazio as our guide, he spoke very good English and was able to explain everything. He was always friendly and helpful to our questions. One downside was they had seats in the trunk, although less important for my girlfriend and I!

Really interesting tour with a very motivated guide who told us a lot of interesting facts about Mount Etna and volcanism
