This was a great trip! We had so much fun! The trip included a phenomenal tour guide Giorgio who was very knowledgable of Mount Etna, the hikes, lateral volcanos, the caves, surrounding cities, and the city of Catania. Every part of the trip was well planned, well executed, and enjoyable. The volcano was amazing, definitely a sight you need to see! Giorgio was a great guide, and he made the excursion one of the highlights of our trip! Everyone in our group was engaged. The cave tour was also a nice sight to see, crawling into a lava cave is a rare experience that everyone should do. If you have time for this tour, it is a wonderful addition to your trip! Thank you Etna Tribe and Giorgio.

After looking around Catania for the "perfect" wine tasting day, I discovered this wine tour. I got picked up first for the all English tour, only picking up 2 other people.
We then drove up to the base of Etna, in which our entire party chose to pay the extra fee to take the cable car (and truck) up higher and walk around the crater. Our guide was helpful and the local guide on the crater was knowledgable of the area. Our Etna Tribe guide was a local as well who was able to tell us personal stories that enhanced my experience. We then traveled back down, we stopped at a nearby lava cave, which was a short visit, but really unique.
Lastly, and most importantly, we spent a large part of our afternoon at the winery. To start, we viewed the local grounds and vineyards. Afterwards we were led into a private tasting room, in which we tried 7 wines, each served with practically a course of food, from crostini, to olives, cheese, meats, pizza, and much more!

This was the best part of our holiday by a country mile. Pepe was an incredibly knowledgeable guide who made everyone on the tour feel extremely welcome, teaching us all about the rich history of Eastern Sicily and Mt Etna.

Exploring the volcano and its caves was already an unforgettable experience, but the wine tasting was the icing on the cake. We were only expecting a couple of glasses with a few small nibbles, but this was far from the case; in addition to four generous servings of top-quality volcanic wine, we were each treated to a Sicilian feast of epic proportions, complete with cheese, meats, canapes, and much more. I won't give all of the dishes away as you'll want to try some of them for yourself, but trust me when I say you won't be disappointed.

To anyone considering this tour, you won't regret it. Insane value for an experience you won't be forgetting in a hurry!

An amazing day with our knowledgeable guide Angelo, who went out of his way to make the day special. The walk up Etna was very interesting, connecting us with the mountain and very interesting. The host at our wine tasting was amazing, and went out of his way to give us traditional Sicilian snacks with the wine, that was excellent. Absolutely worth it! Thank you for an amazing day

Hands down best tour we’ve ever taken! Our tour guide, Salva, made everything possible! He showed us more than we thought we would see and told us so many interesting things about Catania and Etna! He showed us why the Sicilians love Etna! After hiking at Mount Etna we went to see the cave and just felt the coolness of the lava stone. Afterwards we went wine tasting at a honeybee farm and we loved every bit of it! Each individual tasting of the wine was accompanied by apperitifs which were all by themselves tasteful and made the experience even better! Afterwards we went to the honey shop and could try so many different types of honey( strawberry, hazelnut, pistachio, etc.). I can only recommend this trip to you and I’ll definitely let my family know about this awesome experience with etnatribe and hopefully they’ll get Salva as their guide! Grazie mille!

Santi was an amazing guide from beginning to end! He was prompt in picking us up at our hotel and made us comfortable right away with his warm demeanor and insightful knowledge of the area. This 7-hour trip was absolutely perfect! We trekked up and into a cave and went spelunking and then climbed up the craters surrounding Mt. Etna where we found some delicious honey and artistic lava rocks to purchase. We then continued on to Aetna winery where we enjoyed 5 different wines and learned all of the intricacies of wine-making. Mario explained everything so well, and his love for his craft was evident. He complemented each varietal with a local snack, such as olives, pesto, cheese, and bread.

Outstanding experience! Our tour guide Giorgio was amazing, he was extremely personable and knowledgeable! He had incredible attention to detail and always ensured everyone in our group felt included and participated with us during all our activities. Spending the entire day with him was a pleasure and our group thoroughly enjoyed our time together with Giorgio!
Pick up for the tour was very easy, the drive was beautiful and the experience up the volcano in the tram was exceptional. We especially enjoyed the vineyard and wine tasting element of the tour. The staff at the vineyard was extremely attentive and provided ample information during our tasting. There was an abundance of food in addition to the wine tasting which we did not expect and were pleasantly surprised with. We would highly recommend this tour group and our guide to anyone without hesitation!

This was a lovely tour! Natasha picked up us on time and spent the day with us highlighting the most interesting details about Catania. The trip up the Etna was amazing, we were in luck as it was active! Then in the afternoon we were taken to the enoteca Myetna, where we tasted amazing wines accompanied by delicious cheeses, salamis, breads, olive oils, honey and pistachio based deserts... thinking about it still brings a smile to my face!

We had the best day ever. Andrea, our tour guide, was very friendly and knew a lot about the history of Etna. Also spoke very good english.
The second part of the day was spent in a winery, which was a perfect ending to the day. Grazie mille, Andrea!

Giuseppe was our guide for the Etna and Wine Tour! In a word, he was fabulous! Our adventure started in Catania and Giuseppe gave us a history of the mountain. It was a fascinating drive up to Etna, narrated all the way by Giuseppe. Once we arrived we took the cable car and jeep to the top. What an adventure. After Etna we visited a wonderful winery and sampled wines and foods of the region. It was a great day. Thanks Giuseppe and EtnaTribe for a great day.
