What people are saying about Agios Sozon Chapel

If you are staying in Naxos, this trip is a must-do! The boat was really comfortable, with cushions on the top deck to sunbathe on, and space below in the shade. Also toilet facilities. The visit to the cave was one of the best things i’ve ever done, with gorgeous blue water- a magical experience! My friends also did cliff jumping at the cave. We stopped near three beaches, where they gave us about 30 minutes to swim around. Note that to get the each itself, swimming for a short distance is required. Free snorkelling equipment and floatie noodles for those who needed them, and the BBQ lunch was very extensive, with copious refills of food and wine! Free watermelon and water, which was an unexpected surprise. The people were very friendly, and the view on the journey was great! They let you jump off the boat if you wanted, which was very fun. Mamma Mia vibes! I would recommend this to everyone, and would revisit!

Perfect. The barbecue was great as were the multiple swimming stops. The boat was well proportioned to the number of vacationers, it was very pleasant. I was just expecting a little more explanation of the history of certain places, but the crew was really helpful and lovely. I recommend.

The tour was very pleasant. Several stops for swimming in the sea, including a longer one in Rina Bay. A tasty lunch consisting of salads and grilled meats. Be careful of the sun beating down on the boat, bring good sunscreen.

A very pleasant walk with several stops in magnificent places, a super friendly team who gives you time to enjoy the landscapes and the sea. My 17 year old teenager loved it too!

Super! Friendly captain and his crew. A delicious BBQ.
