Hi,
My name is Francesco but everybody call me Cisco. I am a tourist guide and I founded a tourist guide association. We all love to get around our island with people who want to discover our beautiful land. A group of guys from the area around Etna who love to know new people and make them love our island.
We often organize tours on Etna by walking or by bike and we are always happy if new people join our tours.
We hope you'll be in.
See you soon

Wonderful experience. Danielle was our guide and he was very kind and knowledgeable with his stories on science behind the magma as well as colorful stories about history and people. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to try something different.

Had a fantastic time with our guide Alessandro Guzzetta who was very knowledgeable of the area and geological features. They're not joking when they say it's like a moonscape, even though it was January, the weather was great and we had a nice hike up part of the mountain. Would highly recommend this trip.
