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 went in April with our tour guide Nando and he was fantastic! A great tour, we saw all sorts, mountains, caves, picturesque villages and islands, sampling local produce, all in one day, there was only me and my partner and one other person so the group size was brilliant, we got free time in Taormina and on Etna, Nando gave us constant information and answered questions for the full 9 hours and it was definitely the highlight of our trip! Would highly recommend this

Our full day trip on 15.10.2018 Etna and Taormina was excellent. Our guide was knowledgeable, cheerful and caring, "Crazy Driver". She told a lot of interesting details about the history of Catania, Etna, Taormina and Sicily.She was very concerned about her group and she was very helpful. Unfortunately, the weather at the Etna peak was foggy, so we left without great views down to sea and valleys. The visit to Vulcanic cave was interesting and the sightseeingtour in the sunny Taormina was great and good value for money.

We only had a couple of days in Sicily, so this tour was perfect for us. Our guide Enzo was excellent - he was very passionate about his beloved Mt Etna, and Sicily. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything well. Our group had four couples, which was a good size. Enzo picked up the four couples from our hotels. We started our day at Mt Etna. I was nervous about visiting the mountain as I have asthma and haven't travelled up this high before, but Enzo was a great help and I was fine!. Our group decided to stay at 2000m, so Enzo took us around the crater, explaining how Mt Etna was formed, and let us have some free time to walk around and buy souvenirs. It was a little windy but not too cold. Enzo then took us inside a lava cave and provided helmets - it was very interesting. We drove to a small village on the side of Mt Etna, where we tasted lots of different olive oils, pastes and wines. Afterwards we went to Taormina, which was a beautiful town. Enzo gave us about 2.5 hours of free time, which let us have lunch, walk through the streets, get ice cream and also see the greek theatre a must see - the views are amazing!. Then we were dropped back at our hotel at about 5pm. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Sicily and we would highly recommend. We learnt so much about Mt Etna, Taormina, Catania and Sicily. Thanks Enzo!

Giulia is one of the best tour guides you can imagine - highly knowledgeable, proficient in several languages, full of energy and enthusiasm. There's no question left answered - they go out of their way to make the tour as exciting and enthralling as possible.

Hiking up Mt Etna is quite the experience, get ready for quite an awe-inspiring and memorable tour!

This is a MUST do tour. Etna Tribe and Simone were absolutely awesome. The tour was perfect... getting to go up Mt. Etna, sampling the food in Zafferana and visiting the shops/site in Taormina. We got to see a lot of the best sites in eastern Sicily. Simone was one of the best guides too. Very friendly, full of real interesting information and an excellent driver. He looks out for everyone and anticipates what is needed. For those considering this, to tour takes you by 9-passenger minibus to the excursion center on Mt. Etna. From there we had the option to ride the cable car which is actually a ski lift gondola and then take a 4x4 bus to about 2900M. You will not go all the way to the top of Mt. Etna, but you will get to see and go down into one of the larger craters on the east side of the mountain. The wind at the top of Mt. Etna is very strong, bring layers to be prepared. For Taormina, we found an open restaurant to have late lunch but didn't save enough time to buy tickets for the Greek Theatre which others said was worth the ticket price. Taormina is later in the day, so you may need to plan on a snack or there is a chance to eat when you arrive at the excursion center on Mt. Etna. I hope this helps. Again, I highly recommend this tour! Enjoy.

Guide was an absolute legend, the most enthusiastic guide who thoroughly loved his job. Backed this up with great knowledge, if you go to Sicily to the Etna tour.

At the summit 2950 m we had expected it to be cold - especially being October, but it was surprisingly warm and we didn't need all the layers we had been advised to wear. The lunar style landscape and views were amazing! I would love to go again.. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly pointing out the changing flora.. Honey tasting at Zafferana was interesting and Taormina just beautiful, would have been nice to have spent a longer time there, but in all, it was a very full happy day.

This was a great trip. Floriana is a skilled and knowledgeable guide, adept at keeping four couples from four different countries informed and comfortable. It was great to be picked up and dropped off at our hotel Catania traffic is insane. We also took the cable car to the 3000m level and walked around the old crater. I would highly highly recommend doing this, even though it is an extra cost. The view and ambience at the 2500m level is like any ski lodge anywhere. The near-top of an active volcano is another world.

Fantastic tour. What a treasure Taormina is. There were. Options when we got to Etna. We chose to do the full Trip as far as one can go and it was really worth it. Don't forget to wrap up though as it was minus 2 at the top.

A fantastic tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, fun and a very good driver. She told us all about the different eruptions of Mount Etna, the local plants and other volcanic facts .We also visited a lava cave and local honey producers.
Taormina was beautiful - well worth a visit

This was an excellent tour and the guide was very informative and helpful throughout the day. At Etna you will want to go on the cable car and bus to the higher craters, which is 63 Euro's each, as it is along walk and there is no time, though only pre arranged geological trips can go to the very top. Combining the two in one day was busy, allowing us just 2 hours to see Taormina, which suited us but if you wanted to have a good look around a separate whole day trip would be better.

This day tour is one of the best! It packed everything into one day! It is a great value for the price. We climbed Mt Etna, explored a cave, got to taste local food wine, honey, olive oil, olives, pesto and spices, explored Taormina and sunbathed on a beach with refreshing cool water Ionian Sea. Our guide, Franco, was fabulous! He explained everything, guided us through the cave and on a crater hike and was very kind. The food tasting was one of the best with everything under one roof and no high pressured sales pitches. We loved it and bought a lot of items. We had enough time to do a little bit of everything. Amazing adventure!

I highly recommend this tour. It was a full day and enough time on Mt Etna, the caves, the tasting and Taormina. Very convenient that the guide was able to pick us up and drop us off at our hotel.
