We took a tour of Etna with this company and were not impressed. We paid an expensive 385 euros for seven of us to get the Etna experience, and essentially received an expensive, bumpy taxi ride. Looking back, I should have driven our rental van. It would have been cheaper and just as informative for what we received. Our guide... More

I agree with Nicolo, but not only did Sebastiano introduce Sue and me to arancini, and answer questions about Sicilian culture generally, but he led us into very exciting parts of the Etna area, off the beaten track, and was very patient while we discussed butterfly and plant species. What a perfect day out that I'll never forget. Thank you... More

The two of us were the only ones on this tour with our guide, Sebastiano. We were picked up at the arranged meeting point on time by the Land Rover. Our first stop was a nice hike around a large crater, which had a good view that was well explained by Sebastiano. Next stop was at a quarry, which is... More

We spent about 5 hours out with Sebastian. Picked us up on time and got to the park in good time. It was a laid back trip with good information given. I liked how Sebastian was quite laid back and wasn't loud like I've experienced on other similar trips. The food on the way back was delicious. Considering we had... More

We booked this whilst staying at our villa - we had a view of Etna smoking away from our kitchen. Great guides - we shared 2 jeeps with walkie talkie facilities that weren't that great but there were lots of stops and opportunities to get out and walk around and fantastic drives that only a 4x 4 would achieve. There... More

This was my second time of using Sebastian and the second time that i had a truly great time. Once he had the patience to take myself and my daughters to Etna and the second time friends. The level of knowledge of both Sebastian and Gianni was excellent. Very friendly and clearly very proud of their part of Italy and... More

Ciao! The hotel recommended Geo Etna for a tour of Mount Etna and we are so glad they did. Sabastiano picked us up at Hotel Royal at 9am sharp. We happened to be the only customers on the tour. Sabastiano was a friendly local who navigated his Land Rover type vehicle through the traffic of Catania and up the slopes... More

We were a group of four, two with limited mobility, and Sebastiano made sure we had a great time on our half day tour to Etna, he even managed to find the perfect piece of lava for use as a step to help my 88 year old Mum out of the land rover. He picked us up on time and... More

We booked the "Etna explorer" tour through our hotel and requested a guide speaking either English or Spanish. The guy who came hardly spoke any of those. His driving was dreadful, and all he could explain to us was "Lava, lava". He did have some explanatory pictures with him. The "snack" was an arancino. He also made us pay at... More
