I managed to arrange a last minute trip up Etna for my wife and I. From the first contact Davide was superb. This was so much more than a trip Up a volcano. His knowledge is fantastic and he is also a very enjoyable host. As soon as we arrived at the top section we turned right as all the "tourists" disappeared in their buses. From that moment on we did the real Etna. Fantastic experience with a guide who has a real passion for Etna.

Both of us were blown away (literally at times with the wind) and it will remain a major highlight for years to come.

My husband loves hiking and is fascinated by volcanos. I wanted our visit to Etna to be special and I’m so pleased we arranged for Davide to guide us. His expertise, thoughtfulness and insights, along with his quiet warmth, made this a day to remember. We loved discussing all kinds of questions about the volcano and life in Sicily.

Davide also chose a great winery for a wine and food tasting. And I appreciated his smooth, safe driving up the side of the mountain. Now that we are home, its such fun to think back to our time together. We highly recommend Davide and Continente Sicilia.

If you're looking for a tour round Etna, Davide's your man. Due to his knowledge, passion and great company, we had a really wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Davide was an excellent guide and a mine of very interesting information about the volcano, it's formation and development, as well as the surrounding area. Despite the fact that my wife had a foot injury, Davide tailored our tour at a comfortable pace and we were still able to visit craters, see lava tubes, enter a lava cave and finish the day relaxing at a wonderfully peaceful gorge.

Davide is a friendly and experienced guide with excellent English. The tour is highly personalised (we were the only ones, a family of four, on our trip) and very flexible (in terms of timing and place of pick up, destination and difficulty of walk).

Davide took us to a small delicatessen to choose our packed lunch en route to Etna. We then stopped off to hire shoes and jackets ( it was a bit cool on Etna on the day we went even though mid-July and in the 30s in Taormina). Hire charge was paid by Davide (for a better deal) and reimbursed at the end of our trip. ( Charges very a reasonable.)

The tour itself was superb and gave us a real insight into Mount Etna. Our teenage daughters thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Davide certainly knows his stuff and we would highly recommend him.

Davide gave a wonderful all-day Etna experience!
His knowledge and his love of the volcano come through. He is passionate about what he does. We learned a lot and had so much fun! It was a wonderful day! He is kind , friendly and flexible, He accommodated all of our requests. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

what to bring:
camera,
long pants.
about 3 layers of clothes to adjust to the change in temperature,
good walking shoes or at least tennis shoes are important,
a hat and/ or sunglasses, too,

You can't have a better guide! Davide is super!!!!!!
