Thank you for a great day exploring Mount Etna in September.
It was great to hear about all aspects of the formation of
Etna and its surroundings and for you to share your
knowledge. A fantastic day out.
Ciao Roberto, we had a fantastic day yesterday and this
is thanks to you and the attention you gave us. You made
sure all our questions were answered and offered us tons of
knowledge. We now see volcanos really differently and want
to know even more. Your passion is contagious ! Many
thanks for bringing us on all those nice spots, each more
surprising than the other. I can tell you my camera was also
very happy at the end of the day. This was a unique
experience Something tells us we'll meet again. Grazie
Olivier & Christine
We'd like to thank you for taking us to the higher parts of
Mount Etna and sharing your valuable knowledge with us. We
really enjoyed your hospitality, kindness and all the
informations you passed to us. Thanks for the hiking shoes -
without them it wouldn't be possible for us to join on that
wintery and cold day. We glad we booked the trip with you
and are hoping to visit again in the summer.

Dear Roberto, Thank you so much for the
amazing tour of Etna on 10th April. It was
fantastic. You gave us so much interesting
information about the vulcano and the lava.
We did take some interesting photos of a
smoke ring that came from Etna, the next
day, just a few hours before it erupted.
Thanks again, we wholeheartedly recommend
you to anyone who would like to have a
amazing tour of Etna.
Many regards, Matt, Carmen and Fleur
what an amazing afternoon we had with you
touring around Mt. Etna. You gave us a great
overview as well as deep insight into the
whole subject of vulcanic geology. And at
the end you took us, guided by your
seismographic vibration app, closer to the
peak to eventually see the eruption
starting. No matter it took us almost into
the night - it was just great. Thank you a
Just by speaking with you last night and the
enormous information that you have on Mt
Etna, I cannot begin to my journey into this
giant Sicilian volcano and landscapes - much
looking forward to meeting you and your team
on this trip.
Hi Roberto and Mariella
Thank you for showing Matthew and I such a
fantastic time in Catana and up Mount Etna.
Your knowledge of Etna and friendly manner
made our journey one to be remembered. We
have many fantastic photos to remind us of
our Etna experience and wanted to thank you
for making it so special. We have
recommended to our friends and family to
experience Mt Etna in all her glory with
you. Thank you for your hospitality,
kindness and guidance during our visit to
Catana. It was a dream come true for both of
us to climb Mt Etna and is a memerable
experience to hold on to. Best Wishes Dianne
and Matthew White
Many thanks indeed for a superb day with you
last week. Our big group (19) were delighted
with all that you arranged, not least the
lunch! You showed us all sorts of lava flows
and features on the north and east sides of
Etna, lava tunnels, the recent 2002 flows,
and the Valle del Bove. The off road tracks
were amazing. Everyone had a great
experience. Hope to see you again.
Roberto, Thank you for a wonderful day of
volcano trekking!!! The sights are truly
spectacular. Our children enjoyed every
minute of the trip. It is hard for anyone
who has never seen Mt Etna to understand its
true beauty. What a wonderful plan God had
for our planet. We would definitely
recommend a full day to devote to Mt Etna
when visiting Sicily. Again, thank you for
your informative and friendly guided
We are now back in Spain and we wanted to
say thank you for the great time that we had
on Etna Mountain, it was the best moment of
our fourteen day trip to Sicily. We enjoyed
the Nature, the landscapes, the
knowledgeable explanations, and the great
time with such nice persons as you two.
We treasure the memory of that day, you made
us love Etna mountain and we are looking
forward to coming back for the next
eruption! See you then. Ana & Miguel Angel
Hi Roberto and Mariella,
Thank you for such a great experience, one that will
stay with me and my family for a long time. Your
knowledge and support were fantastic and we bought
lots of the onions home!
We would recommend this trip to anyone!
See you again soon.
We will always have happy memories of our day
touring Etna with Roberto. We saw many exciting and
amazing geologic features -- all explained clearly
and enthusiastically by Roberto. We will recommend
you to anyone we know who plans to travel to
beautiful and friendly Sicily.

Roberto, Hi Mariella
Thanks for organising and showing us such a good time on
Etna. It was a once-in-a lifetime excursion, full of
interesting facts, surreal landscapes and a wonderful
experiences. I would recommend it to anyone who is
interested in nature, or this lovely planet we call earth.
Wishing you all the best, until the next eruption! Parsh
Etre sur l'etna devait etre un moment hors du temps que rien
ne devait pertuber, comme hors de ce monde. avoir choisi un
tour prive fut vraiment ce que nous voulions, a notre
rythme, avec des explications adaptees, un echange a la fois
intellectuel, culturel et tres humain. Merci a Roberto et
Mariella d'avoir participer a cette journee qui restera hors
grazie mille isabelle
Desideriamo ringraziarvi per la bellissima
escursione sull'Etna, per le spiegazioni precise e complete e
per la simpatia. Ci siamo divertiti molto e abbiamo anche
concretamente capito qualcosa dell'oggetto misterioso
"vulcano". Un'esperienza straordinaria che ci ha contagiato di
Hi Roberto, sorry to take so long in getting in touch but wanted
to tell you again how much we both enjoyed our day spent with you in February.
You are so well informed and such a gentleman ,you took us to some awesome
places yet we felt totally relaxed and safe the whole time.Thankyou and when
Etna puts on one of her magnificent shows we hope to see you again.Lucie and
Hi Mariella and Roberto
What a brilliant day we had with you on my 50th birthday
trip. I could never have imagined how wonderful and
beautiful Mount Etna could be even in the dreadful weather
conditions that we all had to deal with that day. You made
it such a special day for me - I can't decide which was the
highlight of my day, but climbing the volcano rim wearing
snow shoes with steep drops on either side or drinking
sparkling wine at the caldera rim at sunset both feature
very highly during that day. Thank you both so much once
again for being so informative and so kind. I have so many
good memories and will recommend you to everyone (it's worth
every penny). We will be back for Brian's 50th in 2 years
time. Looking forward to seeing you then.
Pauline and Brian
With this e-mail we want to thank you for the wonderfull day
we have spent with you on the Etna. It was a great
experience for us and the kids who were impressed by the
beautiful nature and surroundings. In a few days we will
send you some pictures of "Roberto in action" explaining
about his passion and the splendid countryside and culture
We you have the chance to come to Belgium, do not hesitate
to contact us !!!
Thank you very much for spending my 50th Birthday with me
and my family. Your Mums cake and the candles wer fantastic
and showed how much you care for your clients and how you
deliver a high standard of customer care. The goelogy was
great. You could of rustled up some red stuff but hey we will
have to come back when the mountain is putting on one of
natures spectacular shows. Thanks again and hope to see you
Hallo Mariella, hallo Roberto,
thank you for the wonderful days between christmas and the
new year 2007. We had four special tours to all the sides of
the Etna in the snow and it had been some very interesting
hours with you.
You are more than a guide at the Etna. You find the way, to
give informations, you find out, what I wish to see and to
give more than your time. I think, now I have friends at
sicilia. Hope, to see us again.
thanks for everything you have done. Your team organized our
stay in the best way. All the field trips were absolutely
fantastic. Great geological stuff, delicious food, wines
and... wonderful weather.
We wish you a very happy New Year! In October we made an
incredible trip on the Etna under your guidance, together
with Fred Kamphues, photographer. Apart from the giant lava
flow, a few metres from our feet, you showed us the creation
of a new eruption, which we remember as one of the most
powerful events in nature we have ever witnessed. It was a
very special day, because of the fantastic views over the
island and the Mediterrenean. We enjoyed your company and
information. Also for Miriam as a runner -and both of us as
skiers-, the super-fast-running descend in Etna's ash to
Rifugio Sapienza invites for more... Certainly, we will come
back to the Etna, to witness more of its beauty!
Thanks, Miriam & Quinten, Utrecht, The Netherlands
We've got one of our finest holliday's together with you
and Mirella. If someone needs a guide who is humoristic, who
has a lot of knowledge, who's a fine person, who can tell and
tell, who... we can say one adress : Roberto.
Hope we meet again.
Siete fantastici !! Un
ringraziamento in particolare va a Mariella per la sua
estrema cortesia e disponibilità nell'organizzazione del
nostro soggiorno. Saluti, "il gruppo scansonato".

Roberto vi ringrazio per avermi dato l'opportunità di visitare
Grotta Intraleo, una delle tante e bellissime grotte di cui è
disseminato il meraviglioso vulcano Etna. Ne sono rimasta
entusiasta! E credo che sia un'esperienza irripetibile il poter
entrare in contatto con un simile luogo..il poter respirare e
vivere (anche se solo per un giorno) la natura e la bellezza di
questo vulcano! Non visitarlo e non approfittare di chi vi offre
un tale servizio significa perdere un'opportunità che vi
