The perfect number of guests to make you feel like you have your own, private tour.
Salvo was very easy to communicate with via email and full of personality for the trip. He & Lucía really made us feel welcome and spoke good English, making communication easy for those of us not blessed with a great knowledge of the Italian language!
The tour was relaxing and there was plenty of opportunity to swim if you’d have liked. We got a bit full on food and wine at Salina, so only managed the morning swim :).
The boat is small enough to allow you to explore some caves and get up close to the impressive geological features around Lipari and Salina. Definitely recommend and would choose Salvo hands down over any other tour operator simply for the more personal service.

Very nice experience !

We had booked the private tour Salina/Lipari for our group of 7 people. The tour was wonderful, with superb views and numerous stops to swim in beautiful areas.
The boat team was very nice. They also provided cold drinks (which was really appreciated in this hot summer day) as well as snacks.
Moreover, the manager, Salvo, is very nice and easily available on WhatsApp

We highly recommend !

Salvo and Giacomo offered the best tour ever of Lipari and Salina. They showed us the nicest places with the most gorgeous water. Salvo even offered us an aperitif with vine and pizza. Highly highly recommend this tour if you want an authentic experience, seeing the beautiful sea and coast line of the Eolian islands with not too many people!

The waters around these islands are excellent but you need to get to the best spots by boat. Salvo knows exactly where to go! He was personable and very relaxed, catering to our wishes, stopping to swim or disembark whenever we wanted to. We did three tours with him, and each time there was a simple but delicious meal, accompanied by Sicilian wine, on the boat. We can highly recommend booking a boat tour with Salvo.

I searched before and saw that amici delle eolie have very good reviews . We booked two boat trips while we were in Lipari. First we did panarea and Stromboli by night and another day we did lipari and salina. Both tours are amazing and unforgettable. They stop to nice view points and nice parts to swim.Salvo and his father are very friendly and explained to us all the history of these islands and their people. We enjoyed our days with you on your boat!

We went to the Aeolian Islands after our friends' wedding. We wanted to see as much as we could but only had a couple of days. We stopped to get a beer at a bar and the office for the tours was right in front of us. We asked and I'm glad we did. They offered us a tour around the islands with a stop at the Volcano Island and we stopped two times to swim in these clear blue amazing waters. They also took us in a grotto, it was just overall impressive. The captain told us the different stories of the mermaid on the rock, the volcanos, the islands, population, caves, etc. The whole tour costed 20 euros which we felt was well worth it. On the volcano island we had free time (3 hours) so we got to eat at a great restaurant walk around, buy souvenirs and take a volcano mud bath (stinks but it leaves your skin looking great, 3 euros including a shower that you'll want) then you can go into the ocean to the warm volcano water. After the mud bath your eyes will sting do to the sulfur, they told us to put a drop of lemon into our eyes, which I was very hesitant about, but it is simple chemistry, our eyes instantly felt better (after stinging due to the lemon) otherwise we would've spent a couple of days with our eyes red and hurting. You will stink for a couple days no matter how many times you bathe though. The captain recommended a fresh caught fish for dinner that night and we were not disappointed (La Nassa). When we were coming back to the island the captain gave us a delicious wine he and his family make. The best tour we could’ve taken.

My best friend and I booked a tour of Vulcano and Lipari. We wanted to do the Stromboli tour, but because it was off season (early to mid October), and the water was really rough by Stromboli, there wasn't a tour going that day. Vulcano was our only option, so we booked, just really wanting to get out on a boat. Our captain, Salvo, took us on his boat over to Vulcano and dropped us off,but not before telling us about all there was to do on the island. We spent 4 hours or so there where we rented a 4 wheeler and drove all over the island and then we did the hot sulfur mud pit thing. By far the strangest and smelliest thing I have ever done, but for 2 euro, it was at least worth getting in for a picture! We called Salvo and had him pick us up at the other port on Vulcano and he was very flexible in doing so. He then took us around part of lipari to show us the cliffs and ridiculously blue water. We planned on swimming, but the water was too rough. Fast forward to our second and last day on Lipari, and we ran into Salvo in the morning while having our cappuccino. He said it was a shame we were going back so early, since it was a perfect day for boating. We really didn't want to leave either, so we changed our ferry ticket so we could stay longer and go back out with Salvo. He took us all the way around Lipari, we stopped 4 times to swim in the swimming pool like water. We stopped at the pumice beach, where we again did something every strange. We swam from the boat to shore where we rubbed pumice powder and pumice rocks all over our bodies and then swam back to the boat. Salvo played music, and we just chilled out and enjoyed the true beauty of the islands. I have been to Lipari 3 times, and I have to say, if you don't do a boat trip around the islands, you are missing out! It is worth every penny! It is truly a must, and I highly recommend Salvo, as he is professional and he speaks English almost perfectly, as well as Spanish and Italian from what I understand. We never felt rushed, or like we were an inconvenience. It was the most relaxing and beautiful trip around the islands. Perfect for girls who just want to have fun, or for a romantic get away. Don't forget to ask for a sample of Malvasia. You won't have to ask, it will just be offered by Salvo. He had snorkel gear on the boat for us to use! He is a perfect gentleman. His tour shop is right in the Main Street in Lipari Corso Vittorio Emanuele. Please go see Salvo and you will have a fantastic and memorable experience. Grazie Mille, Salvo!

We were on a cruise which docked in Lipari (were tendered in) & we wanted to go over to Vulcano Island. We saw an older gentleman sitting on a bench & was inquiring where do we take the ferry over to Vulcano Island when he told us that he had a boat that could take us over, so after some negotiating, we settled on a price & his son (at least he told us it was his son) took us over & picked us up & brought us back as well. We were about 5-10 minutes late in getting to our appointed pick up time as we had hiked up to the Vulcano & it was a little longer & more strenuous than we had been led to believe, but he waited for us & we certainly appreciated that he did! He was a very nice guy who helped us on & off the boat, but the reason I cannot give him 5 stars is b/c I (we) witnessed him smoking a cigarette & then throwing the butt in the ocean & that's a BIG NO NO for me! I was so bothered by that & literally felt sick to my heart, that it was difficult for me to fully enjoy our excursion to Vulcano Island!!! For someone who makes their living off the ocean (tourists & fishing) to do that, just shows a total lack of appreciation & respect for their profession & most importantly, the ocean!!! When we got back to Lipari, I did tell him that we would put a review on Trip Advisor (as he proudly had the Trip Advisor certificate w/5 stars visibly displayed on the boat), however I relayed to him how disappointed we were that he threw his cigarette butt into the ocean & that he should never ever throw his cigarette butts (or anything else for that matter) into the ocean!

We took a boat ride with Salvatore and Giacomo to Vulcano from Lipari. Small group of people, small boat. This was the most memorable day spent in the Aolians. Salvatore shared his wife's arancini and a glass of Prosecco. Giacomo was so attentive - especially since I am not a strong swimmer. He made sure I had the correct equipment on so that I could enjoy my time just like everyone else. English speaking as well as Italian. A brilliant day out on the water. Thank you Salvatore and Giacomo!
