Mt. Etna with the greatest guide, Salvo
Sara_H
, Jun 2022
Salvo, our tour guide, picked us up on time. Upon arriving on Mt. Etna, we chose to ride electric assist bicycles up the mountain. (Other choices are quad, and cable car) The ride was beautiful, with a few stops along the way for Salvo to give us some information about the topography. Once in a lifetime experience, I'm glad to have had. After enjoying, we drove to a cave that was once a lava tube. Next was a beautiful winery. We tasted three wines, numerous olive oil flavors, some dessert spreads. Gracious amount of samples that totaled, in my opinion, a full meal. Then onward to Taormina. A gorgeous, and history filled seaside city. We had ample time to enjoy historic churches, a park, a Greek theater, and some good eats. As if the itinerary wasn't enough, Salvo, our guide, was superior. He was amazing! If I could put him in my pocket for the rest of my trip, I would! He is a very personable, happy, uplifting person. He was very educated in our activity, and explanations. Salvo also filled our time during the drive with information about other aspects and recommendations for our future travel plans. He was very nice, and if you like feeling immersed in a culture and learn from your own personal Sicilian, I would recommend asking for Salvo as your guide. Thank you again. Best tour in Europe, so far! Thank you again, Salvo and team.

It was a great trip and our guide, Guiseppe, was fantastic. He picked us up right on time from our B&B, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and approachable. Shared a lot about Mt. Etna, Taormina, the general area, and life in Sicily. It was a once in a life-time trip and we would recommend it to anyone. Well worth the cost.

Alessandro was an amazing guide and super friendly! We highly recommend doing the cable car experience even though it cost a little more. Taormina is amazing so definitely opt for both taormina and mt etna if you have the opportunity/time!

Incredible experience

The tour is excellent - just enough time to have a wholesome nature+urban experience. I recommebd getting to the top of Etna and doing the crater walk there - very rare amazing views. Afterwards we entered a cave and had some local tastings. In Taormina you hqve 2 hours which is more than enough to see qll the highlights and enjoy the great views. Highly recommended especially if you are in Sicily for a short time.

You need to see the top of Etna beyond the cable car. Our guide (Giuseppe) was excellent, he was very informative and kept us entertained all day.

Danilo was such a wonderful guide. He even helped translate for some of the guides on the mountain. Patient, kind and full of good stories about the very rich Sicilian culture. Definitely recommend this tour. Being on Mt Etna was really like being on another planet

We had a wonderful time with Julio and Alessandro. They were great guides. Very knowledgeable and fun. We really enjoyed taking the cable car up to mt etna. Some of the other guests went on a hike but we were I’ll prepared and just happy to sit and relax. The highlight for us was Taormina. Just a beautiful city with many ancient buildings. We enjoyed the entire tour and highly recommend this tour to anyone able to handle a long day.

Good tour. The guide is was great. Very well informed. However, they should have raised the price of the tour and make it all inclusive instead of charging an additional 68 euros to go to the top of the volcano.

Andrea was a fabulous guide who easily navigated the french and english speaking griup and by the end of the day we all became friends. We started the day in a lava tube on Mount Etna and ended the day for sunset in Taormina. I highly suggest this tour.
