We had 2 hours to walk around and visited the prehistoric village. Next was de island Stromboli with the beautiful black beatches. Here we could walk around for about 3 hours.

The organization was there. The visit time of the three islands is two hours. So you have to plan ahead and select what you want to see / do. I highly recommend the ascent of the Volcano volcano! The return time by boat, not mentioned in the description, is around 11 p.m. The return was therefore long (+/- 2h30). But we recommend this excursion. Very good value for money !!
Friendly team, good payment processing, check-in and service, delicious local lunch with water and wine, multiple opportunities to swim during the trip, ship and toilets are clean, explanations of various sights in Italian and English.
Very well organized with a day full of activities. The visit to Favignana is interesting, beautiful Levanzo and beautiful all the opportunities to jump into the water
Excellent choice if you want to visit the most islands in one day. Interesting informations during the voyage, enough time on each island to see the highlights.
We were family with kids (10,17). We enjoyed it a lot !
