Great day out

Fantastic tour guide and a really fun day out. Loved feeling the breeze on the volcano and tasting the lovely wines from the region. The cave experience was great for someone who doesn't enjoy small enclosed spaces.

I really enjoyed the view, the guide was super cool, very informative, full of energy. I learnt many new things. Small group of people was great. The possibility to see the lava cave and to taste local products(oil, honey, liqueurs, pistacchio creme) was really amazing. The tour wasn't too hard, and the temperature was pleasent, although sometimes little cold during the strong wind.

Overpriced - really just a bus ride to the bottom of the cable car
IvorDavid_M
, Jul 2022
The van arrived on time and the guide was friendly enough. The main focus of the tour was the visit to Etna. The van took us to the bottom of the cable car. Here there were three options. There was in theory an included hike, but it became clear on arrival that this missed anything of interest so everyone ended up spending quite a bit more to get further up the hill. We opted for the middle option of €30 pp to get the cable car further up. For another €38 a truck would have taken us a bit further still. We were pretty much left alone at the top of the cable car - not even a map or suggested route. So the €55 pp to join the tour started to feel like quite an expensive bus ride with not much added value. The guide was 30 minutes after the agreed time meeting us at the meeting point at the end. There are two extras tagged onto the tour - 15 minutes In a lava cave which is not the most inspiring cave you will ever see then a longer stop for tasting of local produce. The setting for this is quite nice and the selection of products fairly generous. It was quite a pleasant event although obviously something of a promotion to encourage you to buy items from the shop. Etna itself is worth a visit and you can get some photos with the mountain steaming in the background but we didn’t get to go close to any activity. It is a shame there is only one public bus a day but I would suggest getting it if you can because it is much better value and gives you the chance to enjoy a wider range of activities when you get there or simply to do the steep climb if you are on a tight budget.

We had a great day! Our guide, Salvatore, was very friendly, easy to talk to, with lots of information to share. Etna was fascinating to say the least. Plus the wine and olive oil tasting! That was a treat. Highly recommended, worth the money.

Do not go in this tour if you get carsick!! Also, even though it says “half day”, we were picked up around 0900 and didn’t get back to our hotel until 1700. The tasting was great and Florence was so impressive with the languages she spoke. Overall, it’s a great price for the tour and experience

Don’t bother

Communication is bad. Trips are not clearly explained. Disappointed in customer service. I signed up for two trips (by accident) thinking one was different. The guide knew it looked suspicious but didn’t think to reach out snd ask/clarify. When I requested his help in cancelling the next day/trip, He stated, “I don’t work for Viator. I work for a different company.” Consequently, I was charged for trip #2. They would not refund. I feel like guide could have at least made a phone call or something on my behalf but he didn’t want to be bothered. And I feel like Viator could have easily refunded the wrong/extra trip especially since I had clearly gone e in the same trip the day before.

The trip was very well organized. In the morning the tour guide picked us up from the hotel. On the way to our destination we received some information about history of Catania and Etna volcano. We stopped on the way to take some pictures as well and visited a cave. Once we arrived on top of volcano we took a 2h walk with our tour guide. We also had some extra time to explore the volcano ourselves. On the way back we stopped for a tasting of local produce.

The other guest of the tour were Italian, so the tour guide had to do everything twice. First in Italian and then in English and he really shortened the English version because of this and forgot to explain in English a few times. We thought this was a pity as we were also really interested in what he had to say. Apart from that the tour guide was really nice though.

Perfect tour

Perfect tour and guide , we’ve had a lot of fun and enjoyed the full length of the trip. We’ve booked trekking shoes and the guide brought us the exact size which helped us visit seamlessly the etna sightseeings. Our guide had great knowledge about the volcanos and Sicily history Top notch guide with hotel drop and pick up. Many thanks

Francesco was a wonderful tour guide who seamlessly and fluently switched between English (only me) and Italian (everyone else in the group) throughout the day. I had a great time learning about Catania and how Mt Etna has shaped the region, and he was a joy to talk to.

Alien landscape

Luigi was a great guide, picked us up at the hotel. He knew so much to tell about the trip and history of the Etna and the surrounding. Good sense of humour as well. We loved the trip, the landscape is so alien!
