Perfect day ať all. We have been picked up with Pepe and drive one hour to reach cable station bellow Etna first peak, where we deciced to pay extra 68€/person to use cable car and 4x4 bus to reach 2750 m (guided tour as well) and see one small Etna crater. This is to be sad that no permission to go upper is prohibited due to safety reason. Also do not underestimated temperature and take some wind jacket and outdoor shoes . After that we enjoy nice and tasty degustation at Palmento Arena. Very recommended. And Pepe was a really nice and friendly Guide.

Good tour, guide came to pick us up from our hotel and spoke fluent English, itinerary as described on the site. The tasting was varied and enjoyable and the crater was magnificent. The tour car had broken down on the day we originally scheduled our tour which was disappointing as it disrupted our original trip plans but we were contacted with an offer to reschedule, so we went the following day.

We were a group of three adults that had an amazing day with Salvo! He was so informative, friendly and helpful, he really made our day special! Etna is absolutely stunning- a must see if you are in Catania- and the wine tasting exceeded all expectations! The food and wine were delicious and portions were generous. I would highly recommend! From the Canadians!

Really nice day out. I was going to give a 4 because I thought that going up to the top of mount etna would cost €30 extra but on arrival realised it was €60. It’s not fully worth that money if there’s a lot of cloud cover but there are other options available to explore. The food and wine tasting was excellent though and so I’ve rated 5 stars.

This was an amazing tour both at Mount Etna and at the winery. There was enough time at Mount Etna to explore on your own or do nothing. The experience at the winery was exemplary great wine tasting delicious lunch very knowledgeable and overall just a great time. I highly recommend this tour
