Thanks Alessandro for the fantastic full day hike & cave visit to Etna! It was wonderful to learn more about the beautiful landscape we saw, and you truly challenged us (on request) with the route we walked. The lunch was amazing as well. Highly recommended!...More

Just great. A very enthusiatic guide Marco will give you an education in Etna history and geology with such an insigth that you forget that geography class was boring. And then to top it all a great picnic (Sicilian offcourse :-)) - highly recommendable
