The tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Roberto was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. There were 4 other people on the tour with us which made it more interesting. The tour included trekking boots, coats, gloves and snow shoes. We learned about the history of Mt Etna and saw craters. The food at the winery was delicious. I had let the tour this was our 10th wedding anniversary and they surprised us with a candle lit tiramisu cake. They also accommodated my dietary restriction for gluten. I would highly recommend this tour!
