Nice day excursion to the Etna and Taormirna
, Oct 2020
The tour starts early in the morning from Palermo. But it has to, if you want to see Etna and Taormina in one day. The driver/guide Joshua was great. Fluently in Italian, English and German he could share some of his knowledge of Sicily and the places we visited. If you go to the Etna, it is recommended to buy a ticket for the whole tour: Cable car and trucks taking you as close as possible to the summit of the volcano. Interesting experience. Also the visit to Taormina was worth the time, although I wouldn't stay there for more than one day. Nothing to do ... If you are in Palermo and want to visit the Etna, I can definitely recommend this tour.

Taormina was gorgeous, Etna disappointing
, Aug 2019
Our driver Joshua was very sweet, but I found the additional Euro 65 to go up Etna a complete waste of money as the view is not much different. Additionally you must wear closed shoes. The Etna tour was uninformative and pointless. However, Toarmina was lovely and would recommend to this quaint town.

Wonderful Trip
, May 2019
I really enjoyed this small group trip. The tour was well organized,a driver Joshua came on time to a hotel.After collecting all people he drove us to Mount Silvestri. Joshua explained us what tickets to buy. Tickets for the cable car, bus and guide cost € 65. We took a cable car to a higher point.And we were taken to the very top by special Mercedes buses.A local guide gave us some knowledge about the craters. My advice is to check the weather forecast for Mount Etna before you go.The weather for my trip was not the best. When we were on the top a blizzard started and it was very cold. But I really happy that I decided to go to the top.It is impossible to control weather and it is interesting to compare weather differences on the top and coming back. The second part of the tour was a short distance to Taormina. We had 2 hours to spend in this beautiful town.It is a choice to visit an ancient theater, to have a walk in a town and to have lunch.I would advise not to miss a theater as you can enjoy wonderful views from it. I came back to Palermo not being sorry that I went on a trip.It would be impossible to visit 2 places in one day from Palermo without this tour .
