We liked the organization, everything went as planned !! During the journeys, interesting and sometimes surprising historical information is provided on what can be observed from the ferry. In particular we appreciated the guide Andrea, who with a lot of energy immediately translated all the sentences into 3 other languages !! He was very kind, professional, and funny too! :) We will definitely be back to use this service in the future, also for other locations!

Just the right time to discover these two islands and their specificities. Pleasant boat transfer (in addition the weather was very nice that day)

My wife and I loved the tour. The guide explained everything very well and it was the perfect amount of time on each island. Highly recommend

Excellent experience, well organized and correct time to take a tour of the two islands
