Giulia is such a nice person full of knowledge and love for the Etna. Going up there with her was very special because we could see the etna through her eyes, which is a vision of love and respect. I have learned a lot with her and will recommend this to everyone I know that’s coming to Sicily!

Andrea showed us around the Etna in his jeep. We enjoyed some spectacular views! He was both very knowledgeable but also a lot of fun. We had some good laughs and in total, it was like a tour of old friends!

We went for the visit to Etna and Andrea was just really really knowledgeable about every single little detail in there, from the black sand to the smallest flowers and plants that grows there, every question I asked, he answered with a very detailed explanation. I was very satisfied of the tour and learned a lot about mont etna and its environment. I highly recommend this to anyone that wants to have a real experience and avoid all the touristic crowded places in there. On top of being an awesome guide, he also owns a farm in his home with a lotta beautiful animals, from exotic birds to alpacas and wallabies 🤩🤩🤩.

Andrea the best guide to southern Sicily !!! We learned a lot of interesting non-classical history of this region! Special thanks for the trip to Etna! This is our most unforgettable and unusual experience! We never stood in line and drove the most beautiful roads to the volcano! And what cool stories we learned is simply unbelievable! Recommended Restaurants and places to visit were also very good! Thank you Andrea for your concern and interest in life! Larissa, July 2019

Our trip in Sicily left many wonderful memories, like historical monuments and beaches, but Etna's sunset trip was certainly the most exciting and memorable one. We prefer the unique landscape trip, not only because of the striking scenery of the volcano, but also because we are amazed at the natural wonder of the rebirth of local flora and fauna after constant destruction and the story how the locals and the volcano are getting along. All of these details came from our guide, the animal and plant expert, Andrea.

We were really lucky! He planned for us a sunset trip. The whole journey is dreamlike: we saw the magnificent lava flow, unique Etna yellow flowers and we explored a cave, climbed craters, and finally enjoyed a stunning sunset view at the perfect timing. Andrea is very kind, knowledgeable, and passionate about what he is doing. He can explain a lot of things that we think are normal and let us have a deep understanding of the entire volcanic ecosystem. Without him, the trip to the volcano would become mediocre. In addition, Andrea is doing his best to tell us everything about Catania and Sicily. Now, we love Catania just like him!

If you want to better understand Etna, we must recommend the trip with Andrea. This is not only a visual enjoyment but also a feast of knowledge!
