    Stromboli made it worth it. Amazing sight. A long day though, so probably a bit much for young children.

    Hi raymond t, you were very lucky. The Stromboli is giving a real show in these days. The day is long as we need darkness to spot the explosions. Come back soon in Taormina, we wait for you! Guest Relations Manager SAT Group

    We had a great experience in our trip to Panarea and Stromboli. As others have already pointed out, this is a whole-day excursion: we left Taormina at 10:00 in the morning and returned to our hotel at midnight. The bus to Milazzo was comfortable and out guide very helpfully

    Boat was too crowded .. We had to run and grab seats as quick as possible. Not ideal for families with small children or the elderly... This appears to be the standard for all tours however. The pier (where boat pick us up and drop us off) was also crowded as the islands only

    Hi alinovsky, the scenario you describe is related to the peak of the season. Aeolian Islands are very much requested during July/August and being quite small, crowds are difficult to be avoided. We strongly suggest you to visit them in a different period of the year. You will discover a totally different scenario. All the very best, Guest Relations Manager SAT Group

    Stromoboli erupting after dark is a truly memorable sight. We were blessed with calm weather and a not too crowded boat. Our guide gave a good short walking tour on both Paarea and Stromboli but it was the sight of Stromboli erupting every few minutes, and the flow of red hot

    Dear PaulHo, you were very lucky indeed, as Stromboli has been erupting in a very spectacular way since the beginning of July and, as a plus, the sea conditions are now excellent. What else to ask?

    Love reading the reviews on this day tour ... I agree with some of the reviewers comments - make sure you understand what the tour is offering before you book it. It is a very long day, you do need to be able to spend time chilling in a beautiful place, and probably most of all

    Dear amand..., what an amazing review you have shared...we are really impressed because you are describing every single detail. Your comments about the boarding are very useful for us to know more about passengers' behaviour. What really touches our heart is the description you do about your feelings on the islands, the calm and relax that you enjoy and finally the spectacular view over the Sciara del Fuoco with the stunning explosions and lava flow. Surely, you were lucky, you have witnessed an incredible show prepared by Mother Nature for you. Please receive our deepest gratitude for this comment. All the very best to you and your family.
