This was a great tour, got to see the Aeolian archipelago in a day and also the wonderful Stromboli island and it’s volcano. The negative is a very crowded boat and partly caotic arrangement for someone not speaking Italian. However the trip can be recommended as a must during a stay in Sicily.

Excellent. Not an awful lot to do on the islands... but totally worth it to see Stomboli erupting at night. Unforgettable.

A long day, but well worth every second. Gorgeous views, stunning islands. Well organized.

It was a great experience. I appreciated very much the journey and enjoyed the scenery.
The speed boat trip was funny due to splashing waves that kindly wet you. The boat was well furnished, clean and tidy.
Small villages are charming and nice to discover.
Nature is simply fantastic and so powerful.
Imagine all the people gathered on small boats just to get the opportunity to observe the volcano spitting bravely at sunset.
Don't even think about how terrible he can be when he wakes up...
All expectations met. What else...

This was such a great tour and the islands are so beautiful! The bus from Taormina to Milazzo was clean and well air conditioned. The tour staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgable. The boat ride to the islands was really fun - I stayed outside the entire time. How often does one get to say that she cruised the Mediterranean on a gorgeous cloudless day! Panarea was just stunning! While there, I opted to hire an electric car to tour the island, did some shopping, and cooled off with a granita. On Stromboli, I simply chilled on the black sand beach and opted to eat dinner in town, rather than on the boat. I enjoyed circling Stromboli and waiting for the fireworks. She was pretty mellow that night with very few spurts of lava, bit it was still quite an experience! I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see the Aeolian Islamds and likes the freedom to make their own agenda for the day.

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.

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 .
