What to expect
Begin your day trip in Taormina, where you’ll meet up with your guide and hop aboard your coach. Drive north before switching to a motorboat at the Port of Milazzo. Set out on the water toward Lipari, learning about the volcanic island’s history and pumice production as you go. Enjoy some free time to explore at your own speed when you arrive. Take a walk around the Old Town, or stop by the Lipari Archeological Museum (own expense), brimming with in-depth displays on the local marine life and volcanoes, as well as the history of the Aeolian Archipelago. Pause to purchase lunch before journeying to the island of Vulcano by boat. Aside from the three steaming volcanoes you'll find there, Vulcano’s main attraction is its mud baths. Consider paying a relaxing visit to one of them, or use the time to spread out on the beach and swim in the Tyrrhenian’s warm waters. On the return boat ride to Sicily, take a spin around the island’s coastline, passing the Faraglioni Rocks and the Grotta del Cavallo (horse cave). Your day trip will conclude with a coach ride back to your original departure point in Taormina.

Beautiful islands but issues
Oct 2019
We really loved the islands. They’re worth the trip.. The main con is the boat trip itself. It can be very packed full of people. Not enough consideration for the comfort and safety of the passengers was given. They should eliminate the tables to provide more seating because some of us stood. Also, the overcrowdedness could be a safety issue. No instructions were given in case of an emergency, I.e. life vests. The guide is very talented with his languages but we felt it should only be in English and Italian. Too many languages took up too much time and very little info was provided in English. Lastly there should be a que on the dock for lining up prior to boarding. People pushed and shoved to get on board knowing they may not get a seat. People made the most of it however some were sick on board too due to rough water. Should provide vomit bags.

Hello, your detailed feddback has been sent directly to the boat company management in order to monitor the quality on board. SAT Group gives a huge attention to the improvement of services. We wish to underline that the boarding procedures at the islands must be ruled by the port Authority instead of the boat company. Thank you for sharing.

A Big Letdown
Sep 2019
Basically, you get TRANSPORTATION ONLY. The so-called "guide" lectures on the bus from Taormina to the port for maybe 40 minutes (in four languages -- some of the languages were more informative than others). Once you get to Lipari, you are on your own - no guide, no program. On Volcano, there is an optional extra-cost bus tour of the island, but no program otherwise. We were seriously expecting more for the money and the 12-hour investment of our holiday time. Not worth your time or money, unless you have seriously researched these islands and have a plan of your own.

Hello, we are sorry for your comment. Our tour guide explains everything on the bus, then on the boat there are other guides talking on the microphone. We are sorry if you did not hear the explanation. Next time we kindly invite you to ask for more info to our tour guide. Warm regards, Guest Relations Mnager SAT Group

A great trip
This was a great trip to a couple of amazing islands. It was easy to contact Aleksandra who rearranged our pick up place for all our trips before hand. The coach ride to the port was only an hour but Aleksandra made it go very quick with an abundance of knowledge about Sicily and the islands. The weather was amazing and sea so calm,you get to see Stromboli puffing away in the distance, but that review will come after this Sunday! We went on a free guide of Lipari with Aleksandra who told us about its history, before we could go off and explore for a couple of hours, my wife and I had a nice lunch by the harbour. We then set off for Vulcano, visiting some caves along the way. Once we arrived after 15 minutes, we had 2.5 hours to spend here, my main reason for this trip was to climb Vulcano, the amazing volcano steaming on the island. My wife and I set off straight away from the port, ten minutes down the road to the foot of the volcano, it was very hot, so make sure you have hiking boots/shoes and alot of water! It took roughly an hour to get to the top, we were pretty shattered when we reached the summit but it was worth it, the crator and views from the top were amazing! Steaming sulphur and a perfect crator, we spent the whole time there. Luckily it only took 20 minutes getting back down to the port where we cooled our feet in the gorgeous waters, before heading back on board and back to Sicily. It was such a great time. Aleksandra was great and could not have done more! The only thing I would point out is that some tourists on the trip do not know how to queue getting back on the boat and would push alot, it felt like an evacuation for some people on the last boarding session, but that is nothing against the organisers at all, and cannot be helped. I guess that's just us being British as we love a good queue! Fantastic trip, would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Sicily. 5 stars

Jun 2019 • Friends
We loved our day trip, our guide gave lots of information and her time to answer any questions. She spoke in German, English and Italian and was a font of knowledge. The boat trip was very pleasant and the bus comfortable. It was very fairly priced for a whole day out and I would recommend it. Lunch in Lipari was also lovely at a small family run spot.

Jun 2019 • Friends
My friend and I did the trip to Lipari and Vulcano with SAT tour's amazing guide Alexandra and inimitable driver Maurizio, both were outstanding. Alexandra was a fountain of information, all of which she presented fluently in English, German and Italian. She has a fabulous sense of humor and made the day truly memorable. I could not recommend this tour more highly.

May 2019 • Couples
Day trip on 1st May lead by Alexandrina from Taormina was enjoyable and informative. Alexandrina effortlessly informed us in multiple languages of local features and culture whilst on the bus in both directions and on the ferry on way to Lipari and Volcano. We were fully aware of options on both islands before arrival. Lipari offered round island tour, museum visit and or shopping and food options.On Volcano there was ample time to walk to the volcanic rim or have a mud bath, swim or generally amble around. In short a day enjoyed.

A very nice day!
Apr 2019 • Couples
Trip from Taormina (7 am) accompanied by Alexandra: an excellent, passionate and very well organized guide!
A lot of explanations provided during the bus trip and visiting Lipari.
The boat is quick (about 1 hour from Milazzo to Lipari) and confortable and offers some sightseeing stops around Vulcano's island.
Return to Taormina around 7 pm. Possibility to visit Taormina by night, which is also a wonderful experience (although the town is spectacular, it is also the most expensive of the area).
Good value for money for such a long visit!

Hello Chiara G, the Aeolian Islands are one of the best destinations in Sicily and we are glad to give the opportunity to visit two of them in one day. Aleksandra is very passionate with her job and put all her heart in what she does. She thanks you profusely. Please come back soon! All the best, Guest Relations Manager SAT Group

Waste of money
It is not a private motor boat. You are on a bus taken onto a ferry. Honestly don’t book it. Not what I expected, very disappointed. Smaller tours are available who offer swimming into the caves. The islands were beautiful though, has a Westeros feel.

Hello bb09anc, the motorboats we use for our Lipari & Vulcano minicruise are suitable for crossing the sea so are big ship with other groups on board, that is why the price is so convenient. Small private boats cannot reach two islands in one day. We would like to underline that representing a company that provides different kinds of services to all kinds of customers, we do believe that every customer has a different parameter in judging a service and should understand during the sale step if the standard of the tour is suitable to his necessities. Our impression is that you were expecting a different standard and would have been more comfortable with a tailor-made excursion with totally differents costs, rather a group excursion that involves more massive numbers of travel companions." All the best, SAT Group Guest Relation Manager you have received a partial refund for the complaint
