What people are saying about Catania

We wanted this trip but sadly we couldn't book it in English. After a call with Giselle from the helpdesk she helped us wonderfully. She told is she will help us if thats possible and that she would call to the guides to see if she could arrange something. After 5 mins she called us back and It seemed something was wrong with the system and she could hold our spots for some time. We had to book the tour in italian and she would make sure that it will be changed to English. The next day we had a wonderful trip to the Etna with a really nice guide who knows what he does in English! Thanks to Giselle from Get Your Guide we could do this trip! Thanks for all the help!

It was great had a blast. The wait of the line for the Tempels was over 45 minutes we wasted time in the line and didn't have enough time to see all the Temples.we were given only 2 h for the Temples After that we had to rush everything the rest of the tour..so stressful. The locations were gorgeous. But the ticket situation has to be handeld differently. I think the tour company can buy the tickets in advance for the group this way the group doenst have to stay in line forever. ..

Bruno was incredible, he was so welcoming, kind and knowledgeable. It felt like we were on a boat with a friend. His boat is beautiful, the route was fantastic, Bruno pointed out so many notable places of interest and went into detail about them. The snacks and spritz was delicious and authentically Sicilian and the sunset was breathtaking!

My husband and I booked this last minute and it was one of our favorite things we did in the trip. The scenery was gorgeous, the staff was so kind and knowledgeable and the wine was excellent. Food pairings were great too. We loved it so much, we signed up for the wine club.

Collected on time , great time at the vineyard, plenty of wine. Lunch was great with again more wine
