Great day out with my daughter. It’s a big fast boat, but nice and didn’t feel overcrowded. Ability to be inside or outside was great because of the hot sun. Both islands are beautiful, but nowhere to change clothes, so be prepared to wear a bathing suit or be wet and sandy after the beach. Not really a problem in either place though! Depending on the location on the boat, guide commentary could be completely unable to be heard, but the four languages it was provided in was really great, and information was complete. Snack bar had everything you’d need and was restocked at each stop.

The captain of the boat was excellent, he allowed us to see breathtaking sites as close as possible. Very well organized and to top it off a wonderful day. I strongly recommend this experience.

Breathtaking experience, I imagined it to be nice, but was again positively surprised. We were traveling with two children and it was a unique experience for both of them.

Beautiful discovery of the island of Lipari and pleasant bath in vulcano

Vše super. Krásné koupání na Panaree a soptici stromboli.
