    We had Antonio as our guide for the day. He picked us up promptly at our hotel. We stopped for a honey/wine tasting on the way to Mt Etna. We arrived on Mt Etna in the snow. We walked around and took in the amazing views in the snow and in the lava caves! Then stopped at a local winery for a meal and wine tasting! The his was one of a kind tour and guide!!

    We had a wonderful day with Bruno as our guide. He was very informative and knowledgeable. Etna was amazing to see and the winery tour was great too.

    Dejlig dag med privat guide hele dagen, som gjorde det fremragende. Manuel var behagelig, en god chauffør, vidende og helt igennem godt og diskret selskab. Eneste minus var, at der i beskrivelse af turen stod, at vi ville får mulighed for tilkøb af en tur højere op på Etna med kabelbanen, men det var ikke en mulighed på denne tur, hvilket vi var skuffede over. Dårligt formuleret i beskrivelse af det produkt, vi købte!
