Overall a great experience. The communication was excellent from the outset so we knew when and where we would be picked up. The guide was personable and knowledgable. Nothing was too much to ask. The stop for tasting wine and honey was food and we had a chance to buy some samples. The stops for viewing the lava flow and the cave walk/scramble were great as well. We really enjoyed the cave. The walk on Etna was done well with a gentle pace for all the group and plenty of stops to discuss the craters and lava flows. And the small lunch break was a real welcome (and a surprise which I won’t go into detail so as not to spoil it for others). Overall this was good value for money and well worth a few hours of your holiday in Sicily. It wetted our appetite for a more adventurous visit to Aetna next time we holiday here. The trip was good but our guide made it excellent. Many thanks.

It was great to try so many traditional sicilian dishes at the local Market with our amazing guide Angelo. He made everything about the tour amazing even left us his contact details so we could ask where to get the best takeaway pizza and gave us a fantastic recommendation. I would absolutely recommend this tour!

This was a fantastic tour which I would highly recommend. Martina, our guide, was delightful and told many interesting things about Palermo and Sicilian food. We are and drank very well. Definitely a good introduction to Palermo.

Fabulous experience It is a great chance to be able to approach a volcano. No particular effort except to have a correct physical condition. I recommend The guide was adorable and his explanations very interesting
