Guiseppe, was such a great guide, walked at the right pace and gave lots of information. It was a fantastic day with a small group, away from the tourists. A superb way to really experience this wonderful volcano..

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our guide was Marco. He was very knowledgeable and made use of every minute he had. Even my two teenage kid loved it and were intrigued. I highly recommend it.
