Great way to see the larva field, old larva cones and a larva tunnel.

We started at 8.45 with a pick up at our hotel.

45 minutes later we were meeting up with others on the trip.

Once allocated to our respective 4x4, we headed up mount Eta.

The guide was amazing, flitting between Italian, German and English - just incredible.

Stop 1 - a low altitude view of a late 1970s larva flow. You could see how it was starting to be colonised by plants again, amazing to see.

Stop 2 - lava tube, time to go underground and see just how larva can create its own path underground.

Stop 3 - a little hike to see some old larva cones and the baron landscape of another larva flow.

Stop 4 - the edge of the 2002 larva flow, how this destroyed an old road and where it met the Pin tree forest.

It was a great 1/2 day trip, great value, amazing guide and driver.

What a fabulous day from start to finish- an incredible experience. Our guide Francesco was superb, lots of humour and really made the day special. We were in a group of 5 and we all bonded so well and English was the main language, so easy to understand for everyone. Pick up punctual and day explained properly. Our Etna walks were excellent, a bit hairy when you are out on the top of the ridges as it gets very windy, I felt slightly exposed but layer up and it wasn't too cold. Do wear a decent pair of walking shoes as the ash can be a bit slippery when coming down.

The ice cave was great fun and a different experience yet again. We were on the full day and the Lunch was delicious- we sat at long tables and everyone chatted easily whatever nationality. The off roading was fun and the Alcantara Gorge was beautiful to finish the day.

This was a highlight of the week - would thoroughly recommend this tour and Go Etna really look after everyone- fantastic. Try and have Francesco as your guide, his enthusiasm is infectious but all the guides appeared super, so no need to worry.

Chose the half day tour of Etna, picked up on time and all the guides we spoke with were great company and very knowledgeable. Really recommend these guys for a chance to see the wonderful Mt. Etna!

We took the half-day Etna tour on a beautifully, sunny September afternoon. There were 4 our us, and our driver, Antonio, picked us up at the hotel, which is always a plus. He was both knowledgable and fun, and though he kept apologizing for his English, he did just fine. We met up with the other jeeps, and continued on to the mountain. The actual tour guide spoke several languages easily, readily welcomed questions, and was both helpful and friendly. Hiking across the lava fields on a day clear enough to see the top of Etna and climbing down through the lava tunnels were two amazing experiences that I highly recommend. Aside from the quality of the people and the experience, what really impressed me was the way our driver and our guide dealt with an unexpected issue that arose for us. As it turned out, our two friends were not able to do the second, hour-long hike. They graciously offered to wait in the car, but rather than that, since the four of us were in a car alone with Antonio, our driver, we asked permission to have him leave the tour and continue his own half-day tour for us by car. I was very pleased ( and surprised) when the go-Enta guide agreed to this. So, we broke from the tour and Antonio took us to a number of magical places, both on and off-road. He was wonderful, and we got to see gorges, a tiny chapel tucked away in the woods, and other sites we never would have known existed. Thank you, Antonio; it was a wonderful day.

Went on the half day tour of Mt Etna today. The convenience of being picked up at your hotel was amazing and our English speaking guide was a wealth of information not only about Mt Etna but also Sicily and it's history. The scenery was breathtaking and the knowledgable guides made the day inspirational and educational. We would recommend this fabulous company to anyone. Make sure you don't leave Sicily without seeing Mt Etna. She is an amazing 'lady'.
