Fantastic tour! Great commentary from the guide (on both the boat and bus), nice boat that showed you various caves, grottoes etc. before docking in Lipari. Good amount of time in Lipari. Enjoyed the swim in the sea in Vulcano. The mud baths are closed at the minute, but the beach was lovely and the sea warm!

Excellent day, with a long break on the island of Panarea all afternoon. The pebble beach Cala Junto is worth the walk (about 40 min) to be quieter. We couldn't descend on Stromboli due to recent mudslides. The view from the sea with the sunset over Stromboli was however magnificent!

Beautiful islands, especially Vulcano. This is an island called must be! I recommend bathing in thermal waters - the best attraction for the body and joy of everyone

Nous avons pas pu avoir axisz de temps à lipari. On court après la montre. C'est trop court. Volcano une plage magnifique avec l'odeur du souffre.

Everything went as planned, we had a great experience and highly recommend it
