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!

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.
