Our guide Alessandro was amazing and very knowledgeable. Due to strong winds and slippery road i decided to not climb the last leg, he came back and remained with me till we boarded the bus. The shop where he took for wine tasting and olive oil and marmalade tasting was amazing. In Taormina i thought the time we spent was less as i had to include lunch also and the trip can be extended for another 1 hour. Although since i had another tour starting, Alessandro made sure i reached on time and he dropped me at the starting point of the next tour sharp at 6 o clock.

We loved every bit of the tour starting from pick up at hotel in a 6 seater car.
Very friendly helpful and perfect driver guide who took us around Mount Etna and Taormina.
He took us around a fascinating walk round 7 craters if you do not fancy cable cars and further.
We loved the tour and it us absolutely worth !
Highly recommended

Very good and informative. The drive to Mount Etna produced some stunning views. Our driver was friendly and a great help. I would recommend this tour, but bear in mind the cable car and 4x4 to the top is not included in the price.

The tour is very well done and thanks to our excellent guide Luigi our day was very enjoyable. The tour starts with a quick stop at lava cave, continue to the base of mountain Etna with an optional trip to the top which is definitely worth it. After the Etna the day continues with a quick stop at a wine tasting place, a visit to Tarmina and ends at the beach of Isola Bella.

This was a great tour! The visit to Mt. Etna was fantastic. My daughter and I really enjoyed going to the lava cave and taking the cable car/4x4 up to the top of the mountain. Be prepared for cold, windy weather as you reach the top. Next we drove to Taormina - a beautiful city. Don't miss the Roman theater in Taormina! The theater is impressive and the view from the theater is spectacular!

Our tour guide Luigi was very knowledgeable , reliable and professional, throughout the day, particularly about Mount Etna and its well worth the visit, we were lucky as the weather was perfect and we walked up the side of one crater and saw amazing views. We were lucky to have a great guide and nothing was too much so we were free to take our time and relax. We could not have planned the day more perfectly.
Taormina was excellent, making a great end to the day. Would highly recommend.

We booked this tour through Viator, but it was run by Etnatribe. Our group of 4 were picked up at our rental apartment by Luigi,. There was another group of 4 on the tour with us who were from Spain, so the information was given in one language and then the other. Luigi was very good about sharing what the other group had asked - but having the 2 languages did get cumbersome after a while. Fortunately Luigi"s personality and enthusiasm still made it fun as he shared information about the area,, the geology, and the history. Unfortunately, the weather on Etna was rainy and we only got to the 2,000 m. level. We did walk around, but the weather "dampened" our excitement about further exploration (and webcam pictures were not better).
Second half of the day was spent in Taormina- where naturally, the sun was shining brightly! We were let out at one gate, and after a couple of hours of exploration, were picked up at the other gate.We went to the Greek theater and enjoyed the view over the harbor and to the base of Etna.I can see why the town is such a treasure.
During our travels we stopped at a lava tube cave-looked like a hole in the ground- so involved some careful stooping and stepping to get down into it. And then some agility and balance to navigate the inside to reach the point where the flow cooled. Our group was adventuresome, so could enjoy this trek- but this visit was not for anyone with mobility issues.
We also stopped at a family owned shop outside the old town to sample olive oil, honey and wine.-nothing really unique...
All in all, despite the Etna weather, this tour was a great way to see the area.Small group tours are much more personal and friendly. Luigi was just a great guide and his personality helped make the tour such fun.

The tour was magnificent enhanced by a very knowledgeable and caring guide. Very expensive though. Price should at least include the entry to the ancient Greek theatre

This is a must! An amazing experience visiting Mount Etna. We were lucky as the weather was perfect and Ms. Etna was giving us a little show. Luigi our guide picked us up and dropped us off. Funny and entertaining. He was simply the best guide!

our guide Stephane was very informative, enthusiastic and helpful.
We did encounter snow flakes and gale like winds at Etna which perhaps diminished our overall enjoyment of the day. Taormina was excellent, making a great end to the day.

This is a full and fun feature packed tour with a bit of everything!

Our Tour started with a visit to the caves.It was fascinating and a welcome break from the hot sun :) .

Next we were taken to Mt Etna, which for me was the main reason for visiting Catania. I was not disappointed by this is any way! We spent around two hours there, but quite frankly I could have stayed up there for the whole week.

After this we were taken to a few other places on the way to Taormina. This included a Bee / Honey Factory and several stops to admire the islands and views along the way.

Taormina was equally stunning. Generally town visits are not my thing as i prefer hiking, but never the less was a Taormina is incredible.

What really set this Tour above others that I have been on was our Guide. Giulia was fantastic! For me this tour was not just a break, but an education. A bit of history and a bit of science. Giulia described so many things with clarity , detail , and enthusiasm. Best Tour Guide ever!

We did this as a family of 5 - my youngest being 5 years old.
This tour had everything and we never felt bored or that there was too long in each place.
A highlight is the visit to Taormina city - so good.
Nando our guide was fantastic. So informative and spoke very good english.
An excellent way to see Mt Etna and Taormina.

My wife and I had an amazing time on this tour! The guide, Luigi, was so friendly, funny, and knowledgeable about everything. I highly recommend going up to the very top of Mount Etna. Although it's expensive, it is truly a mindblowing experience that we'll never forget. Seeing the plumes come out of the central crater is just so cool! We're also so glad that we got to see Taormina, as it's such a gem in Sicily. We wish we could have more time there. My only complaint about the tour is that it is not well scheduled around eating lunch. We didn't get to order lunch until we got to Taormina at around 3 p.m.

Luigi took us to Mt. Etna and Touromina. He was able to instill a love for Mt. Etna into all of us that we will be talking about for a long time. The tour was excellent- seeing a lava tunnel was a highlight of our trip and everyone felt more adventurous afterwards! He also provided great recommendations (all of which we tried and were not disappointed) and helped us learn more about the local culture.

We had a great trip to Mount Etna and Taormina with Salvatore. He was very informative, spoke good english and was able to answer our questions. Salvo shared about the the communities on our drive to Mt Etna, We hiked around one crator as he shared the history of the volcano. We made an extra stop at a honey farm. We sampled wine, flavored oils with bread and flavored honey's. It was a fun stop. We had plenty of time in Taormina to stroll through the narrow streets, visit many shops, eat lunch, take photos and enjoy gelato.

Simone was an enthusiastic guide. We explored a lava tube, explored mount Etna (cable car and bus to top significantly extra (65euro pp) but very worth it- bring a jacket!) Lots to see if you decide to not add this on. Taormina a beautiful city. Greek theater our favorite place. A fabulous day out

We had a full-day tour of Etna and Taormina with Danilo (Etna Tribe tours). He was very knowledgeable about volcanology and the Etna area; not quite as informative about Taormina. The sights were amazing around the mountain - be prepared to walk on loose lava-stone paths and with moderate elevation (unless you opt for the cable car). The time in Taormina could have been much longer because it is such a beautiful destination. The tour includes a short excursion into a "lava cave" which could have been skipped.

We booked the full-day tour from Catania and our guide was Francisco. He was such a wonderful guide We had the best time visiting the Etna, the lava grotto, the little farm in Zafferano and the city of Taormina. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Francisco is extremely nice and patient, he has a lot of knowledge, kept us entertained and made sure was had a great day. I would definitely recommend, it was worth every penny and we count ourselves lucky to have had this experience as well as the best guide we could have asked for!
