The day is incredible. You are at the mercy of the waves on the boat trip - we had a smooth sailing there and a rough one back - but the coach journey is fantastically driven, expertly guided (not constant talking - just exactly enough) and Etna is a truly wonderful experience. We also travelled to Modica which is a fascinating town and real feat of architecture and engineering. A shout out to Simone at "S. Mifsud & Sons" (the local Maltese operator), who organised our transport from the hotel and back, even at very short-notice. Absolutely fantastic. Would seriously recommend, especially while Etna is still very active.

Covered a lot of ground. The drive was long but very scenic. Mt. Etna is very far away from the ferry port. Tour guide very nice. The view at the top of Mt Etna is breathtaking. Seeing minor eruption is pretty exciting. The catamaran ride to Scicily is also nice.

Excellent trip but it is a LONG drive from Malta to Etna. The drive is broken up with a stop in both directions.
