What people are saying about Aeolian Islands

Everything worked wonderfully. Unfortunately, the weather didn't play along so it rained and stormed the entire stay on the island. The boat stop at Stromboli was very impressive. The boat lasted long enough to be able to admire this natural spectacle several times. For me, as well as some other guests, the return trip was pure horror. The weather was very bad and it was rocking heavily. Several guests struggled with the contents of their stomachs. The crew acted very carefully and understandingly. Bags were distributed and, if necessary, collected again. Unfortunately, the weather cannot be booked, but the crew and the entire organization was great in our opinion!

Very beautiful, totally relaxed boat tour. Nice people, friendly staff. We’ve got the essential information about the island. Nothing more (no music, no advertising..), what we appreciated a lot! Thank you.

Well-organized tour to Stromboli - the organizer tried very hard and successfully to present several eruptions at nightfall - great!

A lovely day out enjoying the amazing geology. Unfortunately it was impossible to hear the announcements about what we were seeing

A very well organized boat trip. Whether Stromboli will spit but what is not guaranteed. Still highly recommended.
