Lynne B, Sep 2017
The service was good, but limited time on islands would use other ferry services which were more frequent and offered more options, it was not really hop on hop off as we had to get to all 3 islands in a set time as last pick up was 13:50 which meant we rushed.

I have read a few reviews saying that the ferries are chaotic, but I found them very easy to navigate once you had found the right boat to accept your particular ticket. They come at the same time every hour, so you can spend as long as you like on each one. The islands are stunningly beautiful, and have lots to explore. Although I travelled on a Sunday and it was busy, there are parts of each island where the crowds can be escaped. Definitely a great trip.

it's not easy to find your boat with no signs whatsoever. You had to ask around, not to mention that you also need to exchange your voucher with boat driver! Other than this, islands are great places to visit.

Könnte besser sein!

Überteuerte Museen + Gärten. Die Bootsfahrt an sich war ok. Aber 18€ Eintritt für einen Garten und ansonsten 0 Attraktionen bei z.b isola madre, sind ein Witz!
Lohnt sich!
AnnaMarie_S, Sep 2020
Die Buchung ging online ganz einfach, die Adresse war auch angegeben, ein Parkplatz ist direkt bei der Fähre und die Bootsfahrten waren super. Wir hatten nichts zu meckern.

Plus d'une heure et demie d'attente avant d'avoir la navette Interlaghi pour nous déposer sur Isola Bella alors qu'en fait il y avait beaucoup d'autres compagnies sur place! De plus, ce n'est pas un circuit à arrêt multiples mais juste un aller retour et l'île se visite en un quart d'heure si on ne visite pas le palais. Décevant!

les iles sont exceptionnelles et le temps était au rv. Le guide du programme était juste le capitaine de chaque bateau. Ponctualité à 15 min près mais pas grave. 1er embarquement un peu difficile à trouver.
