Amazing experience

The whole trip was managed excellently. We were picked up directly from our accommodation and taken to the helipad. The pilot made us feel safe and reassured. He was very knowledgeable about Etna and provided an interesting commentary throughout the trip, resulting in an unforgettable experience.

Helicopter tour of Etna

We decided to splash out and treat ourselves to a helicopter tour of Mount Etna. Everything was perfect - lovely Mercedes picked us up from our hotel (great guide/driver), we were warmly greeted on arrival at the hotel near to the helipad and treated to coffees whilst they prepared the helicopter. The pilot was excellent - seemed very experienced and we knew we were in safe hands whilst he also ensured we got close to the top of the volcano (great photos!) without being in any danger. Great trip all round - lovely people - highly recommended!

Highly Recommended

The first helicopter flight for both of us and it was an unforgetable experience. Our guide Francesco and pilot Marcello were brilliant - warm, friendly knowledgable and professional. We felt so well looked after from start to finish.  The weather was just about perfect and the views were incredable. So glad we booked the trip -  highly recommended.

Worth it

We really wanted to see Etna but all the tours were really long and we had an 8 year old we knew wouldn’t last in the heat. We truly debated doing this because it seemed extravagant but we walked away with a day none of us will forget. It was absolutely amazing and insane and our captain Marcello was funny and so kind- and our guide Francesco was so informative not only about the volcano but about the surrounding areas and history of Sicily. Overall we absolutely loved it and highly recommend!

A lot of fun

Excellent communication before the tour started, during the tour: the guide was helpful, informative and friendly, felt safe the whole tour! I was not sure about getting sick in the helicopter but the guide really carred about us. I was impressed about this amazing view - better than expected.
