Eccellente esperienza! probabilmente è l'unico modo per riuscire a visitare L'Etna e le Gole Alcantara in una sola giornata. Una menzione particolare alla guida simpatica, esperta e appassionata che ha saputo trasmettere tutto il suo entusiasmo. Super consigliato! grazie di cuore.

Grazie a Sicily Adventure ho realizzato il mio sogno di accarezzare un Alpaca. Fare una escursione con loro è stata una esperienza che non dimenticherò mai. Servizio di prenotazione efficiente e rapida. Sia i ragazzi che le guide sono tutti professionali, disponibili e simpaticissimi. Sicuramente la prossima estate, mi rivolgerò a loro per una escursione alla scoperta delle meraviglie...
