Francesco was amazing! The entire Mount Etna excursion in his jeep was definitely a unique experience that you won't get anywhere else! He is originally from the surrounding towns in Mount Etna so he added personal touches and stories during the tour which really made the experience even more genuine! He took us around Mount Etna, we got to climb different craters, walked through a cave, it was SO cool! He also showed us the difference of lava that has turned solid in the surrounding towns, showed us the timeline of when Etna erupted. You could tell he was very passionate in his stories and made you feel like you were living there with him. Really a superb value and a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Highly recommend doing this!

Très bonne expérience. Francesco est accueillant, et parle très bien le français. Le fait d’être en petit groupe (10 personnes) permet de pouvoir lui poser plein de questions. Il connait bien son sujet. La randonnée se passe à un rythme modéré pour que tout le monde puisse suivre. Super visite.

Francesco is a competent and well spoken person with a wide knowledge of the topic. I went with my friend and we felt very safe however we had no experience with any hiking. Expect to have a warm welcome and to experience Etna in every sense including a trip to a volcanic cave. Definitely can recommend to everyone especially to those with no experience with hiking and families with children.

This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. The magic of the mountains is incredible and Francesco was the best guide.

We are definitely planning a trip back to the area and would take this tour again!
