I would absolutely recommend it! We saw so much on the water and the islands. The volcano was smoking and we saw sparks spewing out at night! The food was great and the crew was very welcoming. It was a great value.
The guide Heidi was great!!! Very knowledgeable and happy to share the info.
Excellent day trip to do if you don't have much time, otherwise I recommend spending at least a night in Panarea and Stromboli! Very beautiful places to be!
There is no other way I would have seen these islands. So the opportunity alone was worth it! We got to go to the beach on one island and eat a very late lunch on the other. Fabulous.
An enjoyable day and two different islands which were very charming. Unfortunately Strombili only puffed some smoke and no fireworks but the boat trip past the islands and the blue blue water was exquisite. Only complaint was that the sound system on the boat was inaudible as it was too loud and very difficult to hear anything. All up worth going on a beautiful day.
I liked very much this trip. Panarea so rustic. Stromboli impressive. I 'met' Ingrig Bergman there...!
I made this tour just yesterday and really loved it. Yes it is rather crowded, but if you want to be on your own, the guide gives you the possibility while directing you to good spots. I did so and it was really wonderful: this is a really charming part of the world and the weather was great, can you ask for more?
Beautiful day trip. Water around Stromboli and Panarea was such an incredible BLUE color. Enjoyed seeing the volcanic eruptions on Stromboli at night.
Lovely boat trip to Panarea where we had a lovely lunch and free time to wander before going back on the boat to Stromboli where we chose to swim then explore have a drink and back to the boat for supper of pasta with tuna wine and bread.We then sailed to a vantage point to watch Stromboli in action plenty of smoke and steam and minor eruptions. Throughout the tour our guide Greta was a delight keeping us fully informed and sharing her extensive knowledge.
YOU MUST DO IT! We had great time. Stromboli: Swimming by the side of an active volcano. Black sandy beaches. Warm sea water. Panarea: Lovely small town. Beautiful beach. We loved it. Just for your information: Get yourself ready for a pretty long, exhausting journey. You start by bus and go on by ship. And the same all the way back. The ship was so crowded and in my opinion over loaded. That was the only complaint we had. But it is worth it. Most people got seasick. Keep some nausea medicine with you. If you are planning to swim, do not waste time at lunch in Panarea. If I had known that the beach was so great I would have brought some lunch with me not to waste time at the pizzeria. I reccomend this tour to everyone.
This is a fantastic day out. It's a long day and pretty tiring, but really worth it for the easy opportunity to see these islands. Panarea is a beautiful island with a nice little village. While there, we chose to eat at the restaurant called Antonio's, as recommended by our tour guide, and had a really nice meal. We thought the village on Stromboli was less picturesque and there was less to see there, but the really good part was afterwards when the boat pulls out and gives you the chance to see the sunset and the explosions of the volcano. Unfortunately there were no spectacular explosions when we went, but the weather conditions were great and the sunset was awesome. We were knackered at the end of the day and didn't get back to our hotel until around midnight - but it was well worth it.
Panarea can be called the first step toward Heaven; Now you know how it is - each with his heaven :)
An oasis of tranquility, discretion, beauty, in the midst of the sea ...
Do not miss a meal at Da Francesco! The food absolutely exquisite, tasteful, refined and the service outstanding. If you add the nice view to the sea, you have a wonderful day. Sorry I spent just a few hours ...
Stromboli, fascinated me in the middle of the night when he offered a fascinating eruption of the volcano, with lava like trying to color the sea in red..
Is "a must do" , this trip .
Great trip! Panarea is so beautiful and the little beach is worth a visit. On Stromboli we did the walking tour around the small town offered by our guide. After we had dinner on the boat and watched lava trickle down the side of the volcano!
Very much enjoyed this well organised trip. We met the coach in Taormina and were transported to Millazzo port. First stop Panarea where we had a delicious lunch on a hill overlooking the port, then onto Stromboli where we swam from the volcanic beach. Gave the meal onboard a miss and enjoyed pulling out of port at it gradually got dark, waiting for Stromboli to erupt. A long day but would recommend.
Fabulous Outing!!...It was an absolutely beautiful day!--from the wonderful demeanor of our tour guide, Santo to the transportation to the beautiful islands...My daughter and I rented a paddle boat on Panarea--we paddled around, docked the boat and swam in the sea. It was beautiful...Stromboli was gorgeous- with its black sand beach and the volcano exploded 4 times!! while we watched from the boat!...The dinner was okay, but it the grand scheme of the day``wonderful!!
Seeing a live volcanic eruption and visiting those beautiful islands were a wonderful life fulfilling opportunity
A very long trip. The islands are amazing. Guide and driver were fine.
