A wonderful trip. The route was great, the driver and the female guide were very friendly. It was her first day and she was a little unsure, so the fact that she mentioned it made her all the more authentic 😊 The bus was well air-conditioned, the boat was full, but you could always go below deck, the upper deck was partially covered. The best thing was that we stopped at another bay at the end and could go straight into the water from the boat, that was fantastic! I can only recommend this trip 😊

Guide very absent, she almost didn't take the microphone. So we didn't learn anything about that day. On the other hand, the tour was very pleasant, the Banana Beach very pleasant, the swimming stop very pleasant. Simple canteen type food but good (value of the food noted on the ticket of 2€. Punctual bus at departure. Too bad a bottle of water is not provided. In the end still a very nice experience

Very well organized, boat trip was excellent 👌. Lunch was just right. Arrival back to coach was not that comfortable as we had to go uphill to reach bus. May I suggest that tour Leader guided us through places of interest along the road till port. Fully recommend.

There were three of us (my mother, my sister and I). We enjoyed the trip. We had plenty of time at each spot. The journey by bus and the boat trip were very pleasant. We liked Banana Beach and the stop for swimming the most.

Thank you Stefanos for showing us a beautiful part of Greece. The best guide ever!!
