Good 1-2 hour or even longer trip in donkeys taking in the lovely Etna atmosphere. Salvo is very good with kids of all ages and the rides were safe and adventurous at the same time. Highly recommended for families

You can email them directly by pulling the email from the Contact section of Trip advisor. They also have a website so if you google Etna Donkey Trekking you will see it.
