Literally it was one of the best trip ever in my life! We were three (30, 58, 53 years old) plus one dog(4.5kg). Even during the winter, Etna was really amazing!!! The combination of black sand from vulcano and white snow was magical 💕 and also Marco was the best guide ever! He explained us about history and nature of Etna during the trip which were super interesting and also guided us really safe and sound even with the snow. He provided us every equipment needed to walk on the snow including the shoes. I truly recommend you this trip!!!!

I had an amazing hike on the Mount Etna today with Marco! The location itself is of course stunning, with the snow and the volcanic rocks, and the trip itself was very well organized. You can see that Marco is a pro. He picked us up in Catania in the morning, we went for coffee and buying a sandwich before heading to the start point. Marco had shoes for everyone, hiking sticks and extra jackets for who needed. Marco knows the area very well, he's cheerful and fun, and he made us feel welcome and safe during the whole trip. The hike is not difficult for people who are in good physical shape, and the view by good weather is really stunning. Definitely worth reserving your day for this hike!

Marco was awesome. He's a great guy, very funny, and is good at making sure everyone in the group is included. He knows a lot about Catania, mt Etna, volcanoes, and geology, and will tell you all about Etna and its history. A great trip, well paced, with a great guy. Thanks Marco!!!

This was the smoothest experience we could have wished for. Everyone was taken care of and no needs were missed by Marco. The hike was safe although pretty steep at times! Wear layers and bring a backpack with plenty of water.
