Very late and very overloaded with tourists

A good excursion, but an hour late, and a lack of consistency in the presentation of "protected" islands which require an additional eco-tax of 5 euros per person in cash while the island is covered with waste and the boats of tourists pile up polluting. Despite everything, the places remain beautiful and the Stromboli impressive.

The tour guide Alexandria was great! She told different things along the way in Italian, English and German. We first went to Panarea, which was really nice. We had 2 hours to walk around and visited the prehistoric village. Next was de island Stromboli with the beautiful black beatches. Here we could walk around for about 3 hours. Our tour guide organised a little tour and showed us the highlights of the island. When we were on the boat again we went to the other site of the island and saw an amazing sunset and a lot of little errutions of the vulcano Stromboli. It was a really great day!

Good tour, however a couple of minor concerns. First being after paying for the tour and on the bus, we were advised that their was an additional 5 euro per person. This was not set out previously. Second was the ferry was packed and we were like sardines. I would hate to have been an older traveller. There were people leaving their bags across seats and children sprawling and taking up space. If I’m paying for a tour, I expect to st least get a seat. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we were priveleged to see Stromboli erupt 5 times
