Amazing experience! The tourist guide Giuseppe came to pick us up to our accommodation and we reached the Enoteca for the tasting and degustation of local products with Viviana, super expert and very nice girl ! We proceed exploring the volcano during the sunset and visited a cave created from the lava with Giuseppe, very well equipped and very informed. That was one of the best experience of my life !

Great value for money! + pick up on time + nice guide, who also gives a lot of information on the way there + extensive tasting in a beautiful ambience with regional delicacies + interesting tour on Mount Etna with great photo spots

Our guide was Fantastic!!!!!! While host at Entoca Etna was very lovely, overall we did not enjoy the food. That was the only downfall from an excellent guide and host.

Tour guide was very nice and knew a lot about Etna, also we could taste local products in Ragalna and visited Crateri Silvestri and also caves nearby.

Great tour, great guide, wonderful views of the mountain. Very convenient.
