ETNA TOUR 19/ JUL 2019,
We took a morning tour to Etna with Florinda. It was the best tour we had during our holiday in Sicily. Florinda provided an extensive and very informative stories about Etna and the surrounding. We enjoyed each and every moment of the places we visited. Really great tour. And a big thanks to Florinda for the professional guidance.

We had a very informative and enjoyable sunset tour of Etna with Luigi. He was extremely knowledgeable and interesting and a delightful person to spend four hours with. I think Etna must be one of the most underappreciated destinations in Europe and I would certainly encourage anyone who get to Sicily to take the time to do one of your tours.
We went on the guided Morning tour with the amazing Florinda and I could not recommend it more! The pick-up was punctual and the views were phenomenal! Our tour guide was fun and energetic throughout the whole day and knew the answers to all of our questions. The tasting of local produce was really good too! I recommend this tour with all my heart!
My husband and I did a trekking tour of Mt. Etna with the fabulous Luigi in early April, and we had an excellent experience. Luigi was funny, energetic, and very informative. He felt like an old friend by the end of the day. The weather was not perfect, but that obviously was not his fault. Even though the the view wasn’t always clear, we had a great experience and would absolutely recommend the trek to anyone! It was a fun, beautiful day, taking in the natural beauty of Mt. Etna and the surrounding area. The hike itself is moderately challenging, with some steep inclines. It felt like a good workout, so if you’re looking for more of a leisurely stroll, perhaps this particular activity is not the best for you. I believe Etna Excursions offers other options for those with mobility issues or who prefer less activity. After the hike, Luigi took us inside a small volcanic cave, which was very cool (and not too deep, for those of us with claustrophobia)! We also got to visit a village nearby and taste local honey, wines, and other delicacies produced in the area. 10/10, great value. Highly recommend.
Перфектен ден с Флоринда! Супер тур и много интересна информация! Препоръчвам, заслужава си на 100%!
Perfect day with Florida! Great tour and very interesting information! I recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Mr Etna!
We had a great day with Antonio, even though the weather forecast was rain and fog. He was nice enough to pick us up closer to where we were staying rather than in Catania, and drove us carefully around the winding streets so we didn’t get sick. He is very knowledgeable about the region, its history, botany, geology and weather. He timed our tour well so that we were on Mt Etna at the right time to catch an opening in the clouds and fog. Very friendly, we enjoyed Antonio’s company and hope to see him again!
Had a great tour, plenty to do – food tasting, lava caves and a short hike at ~2000m – and moved at a nice pace. Watching the sunset from Etna was spectacular. Our guide (Ludovico) really knew his stuff and kept things interesting. Highly recommended!
Great tour to Etna 3000 and walk around high craters. Ideal to known the south face of the volcano. The guide Ludovico is a friendly and great expert in geology, geography and historic of this beautiful place.
We booked a half-day Etna tour and had a really fantastic experience! Our guide Florinda was excellent – very fun and knowledgable. We learned so many interesting things about the landscape and the region. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
We had the 1/2 day Etna tour and it was perfect! The guide appeared on time, he had a lot of information about Etna and the tour includes really nice places around the volkano.
We took a half day morning tour with the lovely Florinda from Excursions Etna. Extremely well organised, and perfectly timed to avoid the large groups arriving by coach. We were blessed with clear blue skies, and fantastic views. And what Florinda doesn’t know about Etna, isn’t worth knowing.
We were staying in Palermo, so we got the train down to Catania and picked up the tour from there. The train was cheap, easy and on time (a refreshing change if you’re from the UK!). This is a must see for your trip to Sicily.
We booked a half-a-day-tour to the Etna in September and it left us speechless!
Luigi, our tourguide, was incredibly informative, very friendly and funny and made sure that it was a day to remember.
We felt well taken care of and I would definitely recommend it!
We booked a half-a-day-tour to the Etna, which was amazing! Our guide Luigi was the best. He was super friendly, funny and answered even the stupidest questions: We had fun, learned a lot and had amazing views. On our way down we could even witness an explosion at the top. I would definitely recommend it!
Picked up at 7:30 am and headed up to Etna. What at first seemed very early for an average lazy tourist, it turned out to be a great trick as we were the first there and were able to enjoy the scenery in piece and quiet. On the way down we ran into numerous tourist buses piling up, so definitely to go up before everybody else.
All together we were a small group of 4, guided by Lucia who was super great. Always cheerful and with vast knowledge of vulcanoes and Etna’s nature.
All together it was a fantastic half day excursion I would recommend to anyone. Just be careful: when you get to Catania it seems like everybody with a car is also offering excursions to Etna, but obviously the quality of service may be questionable and eve though these agencies (or ‘agencies’) will most likely have Etna in their name, it is not the same company. However, the real Etna Excursions are very fast at answering to all inquiries, so it shouldn’t be a problem to book with the right people.
We did a morning/half-day Etna tour and our host was very informative and answered all our questions, alongside providing us with an amazing experience seeing the mountain and visiting interesting Geological aspects of Mount Etna.
We were on a cruise and therefore had limited time at port in Catania however Etna Tours accommodated us and assisted by arranging pick-up and drop-off at the Port entrance.
Highly recommend booking with this company if you want to see and experience all Mount Etna has to offer.
