Absolutely wonderful experience! You will climb the mountain and learn about the rocks and plants in Mount Etna. It just felt like an incredible geography lesson on the go. And it’s a small group tour so everyone will be good take care of. Our guide Sergio was amazing, he was not just made the trip so informative but also super fun! And they’ll provide the equipments if you are not well-prepared! For real, this’s the highlight of my trip. You will be regrets if you miss this tour, It’s totally worth the price!

Bellissimo trekking con Renato di etnaround. Fuori dai percorsi più turistici, si sale per un dislivello di 600 mt che fa bene alle gambe e la vista è bellissima. Piccolo gruppo e guida simpatica e preparata. Raccomando !!!

Non sono una persona facile agli entusiasmi ma è stata una delle esperienze più incredibili della mia vita. Un ringraziamento a Amilcare, Marco e Renato per quello che ci hanno raccontato, per come ci hanno accompagnato, per come ci hanno seguito. Siamo andati con un gruppo di amici numeroso ed eterogeneo, siamo stati accompagnati e affascinati dalle parole delle nostre guide, dalle spiegazioni così accurate e semplici che ci sono rimaste dentro. Il paesaggio è di per sé qualcosa di unico ma con loro è diventato magico. Grazie di cuore, stra-consigliatissimo 🙄

Our trip to Mount Etna with EtnAround exceeded all expectations, thanks in large part to our fantastic guide, Antonio. From start to finish, Antonio's professionalism, knowledge, and friendly demeanor made the experience truly memorable. Antonio's fluency in English ensured clear communication throughout the tour, and his deep understanding of the area provided valuable insights into the history and geology of Mount Etna. His passion for the subject matter was evident in the engaging commentary he provided, enriching our visit with fascinating facts and stories. Not only was Antonio informative, but he was also incredibly helpful and attentive to our needs. He went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and safety, making us feel well-cared-for throughout the excursion. I cannot recommend Antonio and EtnAround highly enough. If you're considering a tour of Mount Etna, look no further. With Antonio as your guide, you're guaranteed an unforgettable experience. Thank you, Antonio, and EtnAround, for a fantastic adventure!
