Overall rating

We read so many positive reviews that I was a little scoetical whether it was going to be up to the hype. Well, it was even better! The speedboat ride was so fun, the skipper was even better, dancing all the time and playing the best music! He had all kinds of drinks there, pretty much endless drinks and just when we thought it was it, he pulled out an Aperol. We also got some light snacks and the nature was absolutely wonderful. Clear blue water, swimming in the caves and little villages! On the island our skipper recommended a restaurant where we got our best pasta during our trip. Also we got lucky with the other people on the boat, everyone were so fun and at one point almost everyone were dancing standing up! Definitely the highlight of our trip! We even thought whether we should go again the next few days we have left here. 😍

Well-organized tour with a 2.5 hour stop in Favignana, enough time for shopping. Shorter stop in Levanza with time to go to the pebble beach, swim or have a drink in the bar, ice cream in the gelateria. Swimming from the boat was very refreshing. Plenty of delicious food on board. The English translation of the guide/captain was difficult to understand due to the volume (engine noise, music, etc.). Overall, a successful tour.

Great trip around the Egadi Islands with Vito as our skipper. Getting into secluded bays and places only accessible by boat. Highly recommended and a highlight for us during our trip to Sicily.

Loved this trip!! Staff were lovely and the pasta was good! We hired bikes out in Favignana to get to the beaches further away!

Very nice excursion with great food, drinks, water and desert. I recommend.
