Great, knowledgeable guide. Tour is manageable for even novice hikers. Tourguide provides hiking... boots and windbreakers if you need them. The guys pick you up from your hotels or you can meet up with them in a town half the way up where you can park for free. Can only recommend!read more

Me & my boyfriend booked an Etna Hike tour & had a good experience! Our tour guide was very... professional, organized & caring - he made sure that we were well throughout the entire tour.We were picked up & dropped off in Catania which was helpful considering that we didn't have a car to get to Etna ourselves. The ride was very entertaining with lots of stories being shared.The hike wasn't difficult (besides the heat - 38 degrees), all equipment was provided (hiking shoes and walking stick) and the tour took about 4 hours in total. It was a beautiful scenery while hiking to 2500m (*not* the top of the crater) and we learnt a lot about Etna & volcanos on the way!If you are planning to visit Etna, we totally recommend to book with Etnaround - you will have get a "nothing-to-worry-about" package for a fair price!read more
