We were expecting great things with this tour, but ultimately left disappointed. Firstly, it would be better to consider this as “transportation” rather than a “tour” - you are really paying for a 2+ hour coach journey each way from Taormina to Mount Etna with...More

Hello triathlonsean, we can only excuse us for the mechanical problem occurred to the coach, but we cannot excuse for finding a lot of crowd on Mount Etna. There is only a way to get to the highest altitude and only a company is handling...More

This trip was a major disappointment to us for a number of reasons: 1 The guide spoke constantly in German and her English language was quite poor. 2 From Taormina it’s a 600km round trip with an early start, but the driver did stop for...More

We’ve booked this tour just 24 hours in advance and the booking website confirmed the booking with outdated departure times which made us miss the bus. However, SAT Group was amazingly helpful and went the extra mile so that we could still join the group....More

We took a tour with this company to the Aeolian Islands. The trip itself was fantastic. You had lots of time to explore the islands and it was incredible to see Stromboli erupting at night. We were warned that it was rough seas on the...More

The only thing good about the trip was Stromboli. However, does it really worth to spend all day for 2 hours at Stromboli is the question. The trip includes two 1-1.5 hour bus trip to and from Melazzo. The boat takes 1.5 hours to Panarea...More

Hello Hakan E, we don't understand why you quote so low only because you did not like Panarea, while it is considered the jet-set island and it has always been the "place to be". It is a matter of tastes. You complain also about the...More

The 1 1/2 hour bus run from Giardini Naxos to Milazzo was very good due to the driver Enos and the tour guide Heidi who was very informative and fluent in Italian, German, and English. As our bus was the last to reach the port,...More

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.More

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....More
