Great day out
Oct 2019 • Couples
We did the full day tour of Mt Etna and the Alcantara gorges. I can highly recommend it. The guide brought us through the history of Sicily from ancient Greeks to the present day and then explained the volcanic systems around Etna. You will see lava flows, volcanic caves and creators.
We stopped for lunch then travelled on to the gorges.
Wear several layers of cloths. It was cold and wet up there.
If you are visiting the Alcantara gorges pack your beach shoes (the first thing you buy in Sicily are these shoes because the beaches are gravel)

Great guide (Marco), great day out !!

Very enjoyable half day tour
Sep 2019 • Couples
This morning we've been picked up from our B&B Casa Oliva Nera for a half day tour to visit the Etna. We really liked this trip and we're thankful that our guide Tobias knew such a lot about Sicily and the Etna. He gave us a lot of information in perfect English and German as well. We visited a place where an eruption took place, went into a lava tube and took a walk on the Etna at around 1650 meter. After the tour we've been brought back to our B&B. A very interesting and enjoyable, mainly due to Tobias, who provided us with a lot of information. Could recommend this trip to anyone!

Aug 2019 • Couples
Very fun tour that takes you past some great views of the Etna and a volcanic cave.

The tour guide Toby was very enthousiastic & knowledgeable about not only the Etna but also of everything that had to do with Sicily. For example history and great places to eat.

Good tour & friendly guides
Aug 2019 • Couples
Went with these guys for a full day excursion to Mt Etna & ended the day with them at Alcantara Gorge. Very friendly welcome & informative guide of the volcano which included some historical information about the island and Mt Etna. Our guide spoke very good English.

Would recommend to anyone that stays at Sicily and is looking for something to do for a day! Wear trainers for the walk of the crater.

Etna tour (1 day)
Aug 2019
We (a family of 4 with 2 teenagers) had a great day with Tobi the guide and the driver. We were picked up from our accomodation at 8:15 sharp. During the tour Tobi told a lot about Sicily, the Etna and history. A very enthousiastic, friendly and patient guide!! He can give more information about where to go and what to see (also tips for restaurants if you want). His speaks German fluently (near native speaker) and his English is very good. You’ll definitely have a great day!!

Body Rafting: Incredible fun experience - thank you Roberto & Francesco!
Jul 2019 • Couples
We have booked a body rafting tour via Etna Discovery and we were directed to Sicily Green Adventures, which was the best! If you want to spend half day in the Alcantara gorge and learn all about the geological history of the nature and have so much fun walking, climbing, jumping and swimming through the Alcantara River - book with Sicily Green Adventures. The two trained and experienced guides, Roberto & Francesco will take care of you, even if you have cautious thoughts, you will always feel safe. There is enough time to secure everyone, the groups are small enough to respect individual capabilities. Both guides are fluent in Italian, German and English!! Who wants the activity documented, the guides know the (Instagram) spots and record every jump you decide to take! What is special about the two, they also really care about the nature and treat it sustainable and respectful.

Jeep tour - full day
Jun 2019 • Couples
The tour was amazing, tourguide Toby was really experienced and kind. He was really enthousiastic about the volcano, he had a wide knowledge about the whole area. First we had a drive of around an hour to our first stop, where Toby explained a lot about the area we were in. He showed us the end of the 2002 lava flow and how much damage had been done. After that we went to a lava tube, this was like a cave but made by flowing lava. We could go inside and look around while Toby explained the geology of the tube. When we climbed out and drove further, we went by a little outpost. There we had a little break, along with the possibility to buy snacks/drinks. Thereafter we arrived at entrance of an hour long trek. We went by a lot of different craters of Etna, with amazing views of both the mountains and the sea. This was the end of the first half of the tour, they brought us to a family restaurant with homemade macaroni and other dishes. Nice to have some extra energy for the second half. They brought us along the vinyards and to the Alcantara Gorge. This was an hour long drive with a lot of information about local products. When we arrived, we went down a path with around 225 steps (there was an elevator, one way €5, retour €8). Into the gorge, there we had some free time to look around and enjoy the refreshing water of the river that flows through. We recommend to bring a swimsuit, then you can enjoy the water and views better. Then we were brought back to our accomodation, this was the end of the tour.

Overall a really outstanding experience, with a professional guide who was happy to answer any questions you might have.
