perfect from start to finish. we had text messages on the day confirming our booking and explaining details of the meeting point. Giuseppe, our guide was very knowledgeable and explained about the volcano and landscape during the hike. when we reached the destination we waited until sunset and saw the volcano eruptions. excellent experience with a great guide who made sure we were all safe on the hike. make sure you take a jacket as it gets cool very quickly at 400 metres when the sun sets.

Very nice hike in a beautiful site. Our guide Giuseppe, very competent, gave us many explanations and did not hesitate to stay an hour longer than planned, at night, so that we could witness a beautiful explosion of Stromboli which was "calm" during our visit. .

We had asked for a French guide, but that was not the case. But he was patient so that I understood. Great guide. Magnificent hike, too bad the summit is not accessible (but that, nobody can do anything about it). To do without hesitation!! Thank you

We enjoyed the hike with Pepe. We learned about the island, and volcanoes in general. Nice sunset, but the best was the eruption we saw at night!

Very good trip, everything the description promised. Our guide, Giuseppe, was very friendly and informative. Would recommend.
