Super organized! We decided on the outward journey at 10:45 am and the return journey at 5:20 pm. Since it takes a little more than 1.5 hours by ferry to Ischia, I would recommend taking the later ferry back at 7:45 p.m. We would have liked to have stayed longer because it was really nice. Everything worked without any problems. Lunch at the Baia del Clipper restaurant was great! Ischia is absolutely worth seeing! We went for a little stroll and swim. The beach is very nice, the water is very clear. All in all, a thoroughly successful trip!

A very well organised trip. The guide met us at the port and provided us with the ferry tickets and food vouchers. We had a lovely day in Ischia and the meal was great! Would definitely recommend.

Very good service, very kind and professional crew. Perfect on-board service Very pleasant day at sea. Visit to Procida a little too short.

Awesome boat tour around both islands with a little bit of time on each to explore, see some key sights and get a bite to eat

Magnificent experience. Special thanks to Roberta ❤️
