We went on the sunset tour with Joseph, who was great! He’s very passionate as you can tell from his explanations and discussion of the mountain. We were picked up on time and before heading to the mountain we went to a small village near Etna to try some local olive oil, wine and honey. To be honest, if you’re into wine this will not impress and I didn’t really care for the olive oil either, both were “meh”. The honey however was interesting to learn about and tasty. Onwards to a lava cave, followed by craters. Joseph explained everything and gave us protective gear, jackets etc as needed. He did an awesome job walking us through Etna and finishing up at the summit of our hike around 2,200 meters. On the way down he took us to a park where we could see more of the eruption happening and see the smoke trails (and lava as it got dark). Overall a really nice experience for the average person wanting to see mount Etna and learn some of its features, history and mythology.

If you don't just want to see the Etna volcano, which is a wonder of nature and fascinating anyway, but also want to learn more about the volcano, its formation, its life and the consequences and effects for the residents of the area, that's it in good hands on this tour. Our guide Enzo is really great. He knows a lot and answered all of our questions. He speaks perfect German. Coming from Sicily, he knows the area well. In addition to the natural wonder, we also visited an "apiculture" (beekeeper) and were allowed to taste delicious honey in different varieties. Enzo was a knowledgeable guide who took us on a discovery tour around and up Mount Etna in a relaxed and knowledgeable manner. Recommended!
