Francesco is the light that shines on Mt Etna. A great outdoors man who lives and breathes the mountain. He gave us great insight into; its volcanic history and activity, the national park, the life in the villages leading up the mountain . His knowledge and understanding was fabulous to listen to. We could not have had a better guide. He supplied equipment if needed with a few lovely extras. A fun drive with a comfortable trek. A perfect way to end our stay in Sicily. We highly recommend.

Francesco was very knowledgeable! He explained all the different stages Mount Etna goes through and the science behind it. He also spoke about the history of each explosion that the volcano has had over the years and the traces they have left in the city. Totally recommended!

Francesco ist ein super Guide - freundlich, offen, erfahren und sehr sprachgewandt. Wir haben den Ätna-Ausflug mit ihm sehr genossen, uns zu jeder Zeit sicher gefühlt und viel interessante Information bekommen. Für wanderunlustige Kinder ist der Ausflug ideal, denn Francescos Jeep bringt einen bequem auch mitten durch die Vulkanlandschaft. Absolut empfehlenswert!
