Loved the islands of Lepari and Vulcano. We were picked up at a bus stop near our hotel, and then driven about 2 hours to the port picking up people along the route until we had a full bus. The boat trip was beautiful- sea was so blue! We stopped at a few scenic places for photo opportunities. Plenty of time allotted at both islands. We did the mud baths. They did not smell nearly as bad as I thought they would. Went into the sea near plumes of hot geysers. Incredibly warm! Do it!

Loved this tour. Both islands are beautiful. Lipari is very picturesque with its beautiful streets and building. Vulcano mud lake was a great experience

I can highly recommend this trip. Picked the coach up at Taormina which took as to the port. Had plenty of time to explore both islands. When we got to Vulcano we were shown the mud baths ... bit to smelly for my liking!

The tour was excellent. The right amount of time on each island to enjoy everything they had to offer.

Great Tour, Lipari was a great little island... the hike up Vulcano is pretty good as well, not all of us made it to the top, we didnt come prepared with the correct shoes... the caves, the views along the way were beautiful

Lipari is a beautiful island and where we stopped was very picturesque with lovely streets and lots of shops, bars etc We then went on to Vulcano where we wandered and had lunch didn't try the mud baths though they looked like fun. Franco our guide was very informative throughout the trip and readily made himself available to answer the groups questions. Would definetly recommend.

What can you say other than WOW about this trip? Volcano's, black sand beaches, sulfur baths, and of course Italian food along with a boat ride. It was delightful. We loved Taormina anyway, it was almost our favorite place, (sorry Florence is still top of the list). There is no place like Taormina though and the views are incredible. We could see lava flowing from Mt. Etna from our patio. WOW!

This tour is worth the money. The information provided was insightful and the restaurant chosen for lunch was nice.

We had a great time on both islands it was worth the money we spend the tour leader was very helpful and he speaks good English and he gave us enough information of both islands too.

Pick up at 7.00 am from a hotel very close by 50m from our hotel the lovely Baia delle Sirene at Via Nazionale. Relaxing tour with lovely scenery and a smooth boat ride. Tour instructed us to be early at port if you want to find a place upstairs as this tour is a crowd puller. The trip to port is about 11/2hrs. Not much to do at both islands but Lipari has much more history and places to visit. I did not do lunch at Lipari but at Vulcano as I was not interested in the stinky mud baths. Excellent lunch at Da Vincenzino especially their spaghetti vincenzino.

The Mercedes 12 seater which drove us to port and back was very uncomfortable as it springs a lot at the back seats. Every bump would respond on your back.

Otherwise enjoyable day out.

Great day out. We had plenty of time on both islands. We didn't go into the mud baths as our guide put us off a bit but we spent a really enjoyable time in the sea and the whole experience was really worthwhile.

We really enjoyed this tour! When visiting Lipari the taxi tour around the island is essential. The tour costs 10 Euros and lasts about 75 minutes! It had incredible views as the taxi had photo stops along the way. The only downside was on our stop at Vulcano. There simply was not enough time if someone wanted to hike up to the crater. We were told the hike was 50 minutes to the top. After a brief introduction by the guide to the island, we had 1hour and 40 minutes to hike up, take in the views and pictures, and then hike back down. The risk was not worth missing the boat so we reluctantly never tackled it as it was too rushed.

My hotel was about 100 metres from the Taormina bus station so it was very convenient to be able to catch the bus to and from the boat as an inclusion to the days outing. It was a most enjoyable day.

A very pleasant day. The trip around Lipari was worthwhile but this meant we could not see around Lipari town which would also have been worthwhile. We would have preferred more time on Lipari and less time on Vulcano though the latter was enjoyed too.

Great tour. The circle additional cost tour was great a necessity really but not enough time to do that and have a little look around the city itself as we were on the bus. The vulcano trip was great with free time to do as we liked. Just a note that if you want to go into the mud baths DONT wear your best swimmers or your jewellery as they will get damaged.

Nice trip, well coordinated. Not sure I would advise visiting Lipari, there is not too much to see on this island, and you need a form of transport to visit. Vulcano was great! Climbing the volcano, doing a mud bath, and going to the beach are all in walking distance, wish there was more time here!

When you reach Lipari, there are many taxis offering a 1 and a half hour trip tour around the island.
I thought it was very worth the money, try to assemble a group of at least 4 people to lower the individual cost. Look for Giovanni from the company Pit Stop, he is a very nice chap and speaks good english.

The trip to Lipari and Vulcano was interesting. I enjoyed the taxi-tour of Lipari and the breath-taking scenery on all sides. It was a relaxing day visiting these 2 islands and the captain of the Aeolean Princess made some detours to show us some amazing formations around the islands.

Excellent day out, the islands are a must see. Would have benefited from more detail about the day's activities and schedule but apart from the it was a great day out. The islands are stunning and a must see. We did our own activities on both islands instead of sticking with the tour group.

Really good day. The boat to the islands was quite packed and the journey to/from fairly long but we weren't disappointed when we got there. Lipari was beautiful, whilst Vulcano was a little basic and smelly but had a great black sandy beach.
