Owner description: Since 2009 we have made it our business to make sure that visitors of our beautiful island have a most pleasant stay. Our multilingual guides (English, German, Italian, Spanish, etc.) have become a real trademark of Go-Etna. Who could bring a foreign country closer to you than a local? Getting to know the place by taking a “look behind the scenes” – we have been following this principle for years. Beside the classical highlights, our guides will show you the authentic Sicily from their perspective. Among our standing and satisfied customers we reckon hotels, camping sites, cruise ship passengers, company clients, travel agencies, tour operator and tourist facilities in the area of Catania and Taormina. The GO-ETNA team and our partners have the ability to meet the requirements of all our customers, with a team of experienced staff, a well-equipped vehicle fleet and technical material. Our business is to offer the perfect service to every client, to make come true even the most challenging, individual requirements and to leave no question about Sicily unanswered.

Wonderful service from this company. We arrived on a cruise to clouds and rain, with a prepaid excursion to Etna. The guide suggested we skip the trip up the mountain, and offered a full refund of our prepaid trip. He suggested we walk some of Catania, and explained how to cross from the pier to the city with ease. The company reversed the charge immediately to my credit card.

I'm sure the trip would have been good, and I'm always reluctant to prepay, but I would book them again because of the service.

I don't book many organised trips on holiday but visiting Etna was a must when we stayed in Sicily this summer. We booked with Go Etna which has an easy to use website and great service on email to answer questions and everything ran smoothly. The trip itself was absolutely amazing and our English speaking guide was exceptional and so insightful. The off road elements made it so much fun and I would highly recommend Go Etna and would book them again.

Visited Etna and had lunch with our group (6 people, french) in a classy hotel, far from a tourist's canteen. A very agreeable surprise.Our guide Toto was excellent, learnt a lot about Etna and the environment.

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.
