Went on a trip to Stromboli and the eolian islands Panarea and Salina.
We especially booked with GuKan tours because of the bad reviews about VST Travel, soms we were surprised tot see that it was just another small company that bought tickets from VST, so we stil went with VST tours...
First we had to sail 1,5 hours to Capo d Orlando to pick up another load of passengers. The boat is more of a huge ferry which can ship 240 people. Inside it is more like an airplane with rows of seating. People get greedy for the best spots and claim them for the whole day. Arriving at Salina they offer to take you on a bus for another 1,5 hour for €10. But believe me, you'll want to stretch your legs..after Salina it's another half our sailing to Panarea. After that you sail to Stromboli. When te evening falls you get back on the boat to watch te 'eruptions'. After 3 small clouds and one glimpse of fire the boat takes off. It's nothing near the lavastreams you are promised in the pictures. Then begins the long return home, first to Capo d Orlando again, what takes almost 2,5 hours, and then 1,5 hour to Cefalu. I can't complement any part of the tour. The service was poor, nothing was done about the seating possibilities, the captain began his explaining in Italian, German, French and English, but after a few hours he didn't bother to speak any other language than Italian.
I'd rather keep the €85(!!!) in my pocket if I were you. There's really nothing included in the price, all drinks and food must be bought on the island or in the bar on the boat.
If you really want to see Stromboli, you'd better stay at capo d Orlando and take a ferry there. Than you can join a hike tour where you might actually see something

We had the pleasure of using this service whilst in Sicily. Could not have been better. Saro our driver was so obliging, nothing was an effort. We felt so safe and comfortable.
His local knowledge was always useful. Would highly recommend this service.

I had the absolute pleasure of being driven around Sicily by the charming Sarro. He was prompt, knowledgeable, the transport was always clean and impeccably presented. He was a very responsible driver and made our journey very enjoyable.
I can recommend his company on the basis of the professional approach that is taken to all elements of the experience.

Saro was the best tour guide we have ever been with in Italy. When you think of Sicily--think Kefatur. Saro was personable, genuine, and very dedicated. At the end of our 4 days we didn't consider him a name or acquaintance--we considered him our friend. We wholeheartedly recommend Saro, along with his company, Kefatur!

We used the transfer service provided by Kefatur. We were picked up from Palermo airport and taken back there 2 weeks later. On both occasions, the driver was on time, very polite, and drove in a very safe way. The van was comfortable. An added bonus was not having to worry about driving around Sicily and / or finding a parking space in Cefalu, which appears to be very difficult. Would definitely use the service if in Cefalu again, and would recommend it to family and friends.

I can confirm all positive reviews about Kefatur in Cefalu!
We booked 1 day tour to Isole Eolie (Stromboli and Panarea)and rent a car (Panda) for 4 days. Fist of all the people who work in this agency are so kind and friendly that only Sicilians can be! They gave us a significant discount for a car, advised us about gorgeous place to visit and how exactly reach them by a car.
We've bee in Cefalu for 7 days in September 2015, unforgettable memories! :)

During October 2015 we utilized Saro as our guide and driver to discover the town of Collesano Sicily. This was the town where my grandparents were born. Saro helped us find and visit the church of my ancestors. He also located the cemetery and even helped us find a long lost cousin. What a wonderful experience ! But wait! After our visit to Collesano Saro drove us to the beautiful city of Cefalu, where we had lunch and toured this amazing city. What a perfect day.

Thank you Saro for allowing us to walk the same streets as our grandparents. You are the best !

We utilized Kefatur for a university group from the US visiting Sicily and were very pleased. Saro was our guide/driver and met our needs perfectly. Great English, very informative about all aspects of Sicily -- from history to food production -- and fantastic service. Good value and great service when you have a driver who is also your guide. Saro was also great at listening to what we wanted and shaping the tour to fit our needs rather than simply selling us a pre-packaged tour that is the same is what every other tourist is doing. Gukan by Kefatur is a great organization to work with and Saro is one of the best guides we have worked with. Definitely use them if you are traveling to Cefalu.
