Excellent excursion to Panarea and Stromboli
Roland G

The bus trip to Milazzo was excellent, and the guide gave a lot of information in 3 languages. This was completed by interesting comments during the boat excursion. At night the boat stopped in front of Stromboli volcano and we could see a lot of eruptions and beginning of lava falll down, but nothing going down to the sea (no luck)as shown in some postcards . Later on I asked the Viator contractor to give me the distance between the boat and the volcano, but did not receive any answer

Dear Roland G, thank you from the team for your review. We are very pleased that you have enjoyed the guide leader. Unfortunately, the volcano is unpredictable and we are sorry that you could not see the completely “sciara del fuoco”. If they have not given you the distance is because we have to ask to captain of the boat first. Now that we did and we can tell you that there was 2 sea miles. Kind regards P.Lombardo The owner
Beautiful and tiring tour
, Jul 2019
It is a beautiful tour but a bit tiring. It is a 1h30 bus ride from Cefalu to Milazzo, then a 2h boat ride from Milazzo to Panarea, a 2h stay in Panarea with no real possibility of swimming, a 1h boat ride to Stromboli, 2h stay in Stromboli. There one can swim in the sea but one must wear rubber shoes with thick soles that can go into the sea because walking on a rock-beach is tough. We got unlucky that the sea was so rough that the boat captain decided to skip the volcano eruption and head back early. Many people were getting very seasick. But it was absolutely beautiful and worth the trip.

First we assumed that we would travel...

First we assumed that we would travel to the islands from Cefalu by boat not spend hours in a van. The boat trip around the islands was pleasant. Panarea offered little but we had a wonderful meal in a restaurant not recommended by the guide.. Being left on a beach of stone for 2.5 hours was torture. A crime against humanity!

Une excursion inoubliable : Magnifiques paysages, une guide vraiment très et le spectacle des éruptions du Stromboli au coucher du soleil pour achever l excursion.
