Myself and my partner recently joined the Sciara Nera tour on Mount Etna with another group of travellers. Dario, the guide, was knowledgeable, flexible and open to questions. The track was challenging but the pace was easy. The views were breathtaking. We had a lovely Sicilian pic-nic lunch too, with local cheeses, meats and vegetables. Mama Angela's caponata was particularly... More

We had a great day touring on Mt Etna and around. Andrea, our guide from Sciara Nera, made a perfect programme of visits for us to discover the area. We really appreciated all the informations provided to us by Andrea and the flexibility of the schedule. We also went to several places to taste delicious local food. Great overall experience!

A group of 15 adults and 2 children recently went hiking on Mt. Etna with Andrea as a guide. We had a fantastic time - a highlight of our time in Sicily. We requested a longer hike than the typical bus tour walk and Andrea chose the perfect hike for us. He led us on a trail to an amazing... More

We spent one day at Etna with Andrea, our guide. The individual tour was perfect for us as a family, because with children you never know in advance... We had a perfect home made lunch and in the afternoon we changed the trip due to three tired kids. Thank you Andrea, we enjoyed this impressive day very much.

Thanks a lot, we always try to fit the excursion according to weather conditions, the travel time of the paths and the physical conditions of our guests. Excursions should be a pleasure, so we always keep the pace of the participants. Children always require special care and we have some ideas to make our tours more interesting to them. Thanks...
