Acerca de
¡Descubre el Etna y las gargantas de Alcántara! ¡La mezcla perfecta de aventura y refrescantes momentos de relajación! La excursión comienza en SUV o minivan (hasta 8 personas), junto con nuestros guías expertos. Nuestra primera parada es un tramo todoterreno hasta el frente de lava de la erupción de 2002. Comenzando de nuevo por la Via Mareneve, en medio del pinar de Ragabo, llegaremos al punto de partida de nuestra caminata hacia los cráteres de Monti Sartorius. Continuaremos a pie partiendo de los 1650m y alcanzando los 1750m de altitud, un paseo sencillo y apto para todos. Luego exploraremos una cueva de flujo de lava, la Grotta dei Ladroni, equipada con cascos y antorchas. Nos detendremos en un chalet o restaurante local para almorzar (incluido en el precio: un primer plato, bebida y café). Después del almuerzo, llegaremos al característico Gole dell'Alcantara, también llamado Gole di Larderia. Una visita refrescante y relajante a un lugar maravilloso. ¡Puedes refrescarte en el río Alcantara en medio del cañón Gole!

    After our original Etna trip was cancelled with another company we booked with Dream Island very last minute, and how glad we now are that we did! Richard from Dream Island was fantastic! He communicated with us via WhatsApp and made arrangements for my friend and I to be picked up from our hotel as we had no means to travel to Catania. He was speedy with his responses and made every effort to make the trip happen as it was our last day in Sicily. We were picked up by our guide Salvatore who was incredibly helpful, informative, answered all our questions and so kind. He took my friend and I on a route that he doesn't usually take so that we were able to see 2 of the bigger craters at 2100m. The hike awarded us with magnificent views of the mountain and the craters were unbelievable! I would absolutely recommend Dream Island. Big thanks to Richard and Salvatore for making our trip to Siciliy amazing and making Etna happen for us when we had been let down by another company last minute on our last day.

    The best Sicily trip we have booked, many thanks to Salvatore!
    Salvatore was our tour guide. He is a true Sicilian, so he was able to tell us childhood stories about Mount Etna and the whole of Sicily.

    The time while driving around by car was used to explain passed and prepare the next stops. the lunch was easy but very delicious meal. we, in a group of 4 (me, my girlfriend and 2 further tourists from england) enjoyed the whole trip, lastly due to our brilliant guide!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a kind review! Salvatore was very happy to hear about it, he is passionate about sharing his love for Sicily so he is glad that you enjoyed hearing his stories. Reading that this was the best tour you booked during your stay in Sicily is one of the best praises you can give us, we really are very thankful.

    I did the excursion to the top of the north side of Etna with my girlfriend and Salvatore (our guide) and it was a wonderful experience. Right from the start she proved to be an honest and very helpful person: instead of the "basic" excursion that I am reviewing, she proposed the "stronger" experience, making us reach higher (on foot) with the route and all at the same price, only for the fact that, seeing us young and sporty, he stated that perhaps we would be bored in this other formula. Very easygoing person, but also very cultured (and the two things very often don't match, trust me) and also very willing to take souvenir photos of me and my girlfriend (he looked like an F. Blogger, he was so good at using his cell phone despite his 51 years old)

    My husband and I went on this excursion trip today and it was a mixed experience.

    We were the only ones on the tour, and we met Salvador at the agreed meeting point. He was friendly and attentive throughout this drive.

    We arrived at Mount Etna and got hiking! It was quite a steep incline and your feet slipped sometimes, but it was worth it! The craters, views and grottos were awesome to see. Salvador was lovely, attentive, reassuring about having time to take it slowly, and great at explaining the different areas we reached. He was very knowledgeable about Mount Etna which made for a lovely experience. He also offered to take photos which was a lovely touch!

    We then drove down to a small restaurant and had some ragu and pistachio pasta. I thought we got a choice of first course, but didn't mind to find out we got 2 types of pasta as the dish served. This would be a problem however if you (for example) had a nut allergy, as there didn't appear to be another option food-wise included in the price. A bottle of water was included here, which was refreshing.

    *So far in the trip, Salvador had received mobile notifications, and a couple calls, but he hadn't let it affect his touring presentation. He did answer a couple calls but we didn't mind as we were off wandering, and when we approached him, he would shortly end the call and give his attention back to us.*

    I was really looking forward to the Alcantara gorges trip, which was advertised as half of the tour experience. Upon pulling up to the entrance, Salvador initially thought it was shut but, upon realising cars were parked in there, he realised it wasn't and we go in. Easy mistake to make (I thought), but quickly rectified.

    I unfortunately noticed from here on out that this reluctance to tour the Alcantara gorges continued... We looked from a viewpoint, and Salvador talked about it being closed but described the gorges briefly. I noticed there were people down by the water and I prompted him to get tickets to go down there. The ticket cost stated it was included in the tour price, so it felt like we were (intentionally or not) trying to be cut short of an experience.

    Anyway, we get down to the bottom by lift and it's gorgeous! The rocks surrounding us are REALLY smooth - fake looking even - whilst the cliffs are geometric in formation. It was fascinating to look at and I was expecting our tour guide to give us a good amount of detail about this landscape. Sadly, Salvador only explained a couple things before walking off and talking on his phone. My husband and I wandered around, hoping he'd step back into his role of tour guide, but he didn't from here on out. It felt like his attention was on his phone fully, and anything we were doing was wasting his time. He spoke only when I asked him a question, and otherwise looked like a bored parent waiting for his children to get tired... he was conveying all the signs of wanting to leave, which I could tell made my partner withdraw and want to go early too.

    When we got back up using the lift, I had to proactively wander toward a garden area which was there to explore as, yet again, our tour guide seemed like he wanted to leave. I tried to enjoy this last part of the tour but I really struggled to as I could feel him judging me to a certain degree by being curious and wanting to explore my surroundings.

    ---

    I don't know why the professionalism changed after lunch, but it really ruined what was otherwise a lovely tour experience. I felt like a problem for the second half of the tour, and like we had a taxi driver with us instead of a tour guide. We were very easy going tourists, friendly and polite, and so there's nothing I can think of that we did. Regardless, please don't stop putting in effort after lunch. The first half was lovely, I just wish the second half matched it.

    Dear Laura, thank you for your feedback. We are really glad to know that you enjoyed visiting all these awesome places during the tour! When it comes to lunch I reassure you that we have alternatives available for those with allergies, we just need to be notified about them and we will take care of it. In your specific case since you didn't have any specific allergy you got our "standard" lunch with two traditional sicilian pasta dishes. About the visit to the Gorges, to clarify them being open/closed, I can confirm that the day of your tour the municipal entrance was in fact closed. That's the entrance that we usually use and is included in the price of the tour. Since you were so excited to go down to the Gorges, Salvatore decided to include the more expensive private entrance so that you could experience the Gorges upclose. I'm sure he decided not to go into details about this difference among the entrances and to take care about the extra costs himself so that you wouldn't have anything else to worry about. I hope that with this explanation you now have a clearer picture and there are no more misunderstandigs. Although Salvatore was ready to quickly get back to you we are sorry about the inconvenience caused by the extra calls he got. Salvatore is a very caring person as I'm sure you noticed during your trip together, if you or anyone else are bothered by something please don't hesitate to make it known during the trip so that we can have a chance to fix it on the go, instead of waiting until everything is done. We thank you again for your feedback as we are always looking for ways to improve. If you wish to share another experience with us in the future I'm sure we will have a great time together!

    Thanks to Salvatore, he came to pick us up not far from our accommodation and explained to us the history of Etna and its surroundings.

    I was not actually able to go on the trip due to illness. A serious cold, or possibly Covid, hit me the night before. I waited till the morning to see if I would be able to go and it was impossible. I emailed Dream Island via Tripadvisor at 7 AM about the situation. I simply wanted them to know that they did not need to pick me up. They surprised me by letting me know that they would give me a full refund in spite of the late notice. I will certainly book with them when I have the opportunity in the future.

    Wonderful scenery and stunning Mount Etna landscape - tick. Very friendly staff- tick. Nice and tasty lunch - tick.

    Otherwise so disappointig. The trip is advertised as a small-group adventure in English. I booked from Australia months in advance. Yes - the vans take a maximum 8 people, but 2 vans and a private car were a part of our convoy. Our (very friendly) car driver spoke about 5 words of English combined with our 5 words of Italian, it made a very long 3 or so hours in the car trying to "converse". I repeat - we booked this 3 months in advance, so no excuse of late notice. Not a driver's fault but bad organising.
    Of the more than two dozen people combined, the majority were Italian speakers. So our guide, whose English was just ok, would say the obligatory two or three sentences in English, and then converse most of time exclusively in Italian, obviously the language he is more comfortable with. It didn't feel like a welcome or immersive experience to the English speakers, and definitely not as advertised.
    What else? Hiking poles included? Not really - the van people had them, but our car wasn't offered any, we used tree branches. Helmets supplied? Of our 3, two were out of batteries - the organisers didn't bother checking. Water? We weren't offered any. Definitely felt like an unwelcome tack-on to the Italian tour. .
    So very disappointing

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your experience with us. We are truly happy knowing that you enjoyed the beautiful sceneries, our Sicilian lunch, and the friendly staff. We are genuinely sorry to hear that certain aspects of your tour did not meet your expectations. Most of these issues could've easily been fixed by communicating them to the guides during the tour. Regarding the group composition we did have 3 vehicles that day and for that reason we also had 2 separate guides so that there wasn't just a single guide taking care of the whole group. The group was a balanced mix as there were about 60% italian speakers and 40% english speakers, also there definitely weren't more than 2 dozen people as they wouldn't even fit on 2 minivans and an SUV. Regarding the transportation logistics we understand that a long car ride is not ideal but we cover a wide area for pickups and you were staying far from the area of the tour. It takes about 1 hour to go from where you were staying to Etna and than 1 more hour to come back from the Alcantara Gorges, this is something outside our control. The rest was driving between the various locations of the tour, which is also split between several instances. We apologize about the misunderstanding regarding hiking poles and water bottles. Both are kept on the back of our vehicles and they are provided on request so you can either inform us during your booking procedure or ask the guide directly during the tour and they will be given to you. We are sorry about the inconvenience you experienced with the helmets, I'm sure our guides gave you ones with a charged battery as soon as you pointed it out but we will try to pay even more attention to make sure that they are all fully charged. It's hard to comment about the talking situation since I wasn't there personally, I can say that our guides are very friendly and outgoing so that seems unlike them, but this feedback will be relayed to them so that we can identify areas to improve if needed. We want to assure that whoever books a tour in english will receive information in english, our guides are ready to answer any question and are happy to repeat explanations if needed, they don't just know a few sentences by heart. We encourage our guests to voice their concerns during the tour so that our guides can promptly address any issues and make the necessary adjustments to enhance your experience and meet your expectations. We thank you again for your feedback as it helps us identify possible areas for improvement. If you have any further concerns do not hesitate to reach out to us directly, we hope to have the opportunity to provide you with a more satisfying experience in a future occasion.

    We had a great day visiting Etna, the 'snow cave' and Alcantara. Emanuele was our guide for the day, he was excellent, approachable, very knowledgeable, and made the day fun.
    We visited several locations on Etna and learned about its geology and its various craters (it has had lots over the years). The description on the website is an accurate account of what you will see. Lunch was a lovely pasta dish. Glad we chose this tour and happy to recommend it.
