While visiting Taormina at the end of April, I booked a full day jeep tour with Eddy Tronchet. There were 7 participants for the day, so we had two jeeps and Eddy shared his knowledge to the second jeep via walkie talkie. There was no end to the information provided! The differences between Etna and other volcanoes, agricultural information, discussions... More

We reached 2000 metres and even had the opportunity to scurry down ropes into an old lava flow tube and hear about the amazing... More

I was in Taormina with my fiancee and I contacted Eddy to check about excursions. He was very helpful and explained the possibilities. In the end, as Etna stopped with the lava flows before we arrive we chosed the half day excursion that was guided by Natalie. She was one of the best guides I had ever taken, very kindly... More

Eddy has been going up Etna for nearly fifty years. He is fascinated by the mountain & enjoys sharing his passion with visitors. He has vast knowledge at his fingertips & speaks excellent English. Highly recommended.
