Truly recommended excursion, excellent value for money if you consider that it is a full day trip and with fish-based lunch (excellent, among other things) and Greek specialties included. The crystal clear waters of Alimia are the icing on the cake. On the island you will also find 8 sun loungers with 4 free umbrellas. The guides are very friendly and provide explanations in both French and English. We even spotted dolphins! If I had known beforehand the beauty of this excursion I would have certainly repeated it during my holiday in Rhodes. Only note: I would have preferred to spend the whole day in Alimia instead of passing through the tuna farms of Stroggyli so as to have enough time to swim and visit the interior of Alimia, perhaps even attempting to climb the fortress at the top of the 'island. Highly recommended excursion!

sailing boat cruise Iraklia and Schinoussa with lunch I booked this cruise because it only included two islands so the possibility of having more time to stay there. They have become 3 and most of the time at sea it is better to give the information first However beautiful and the skippers are very good and extremely available

We were a group of 8 people and had an amazing day on the boat together with our two guides Nick & Harry who greatly took care of us! Thanks so much for this amazing day and we can 100% recommend the experience and our two skippers!

A really nice trip that was very well organized. the whole team is professional and super nice. The food was simple but fresh and very tasty. And Alimia is simply a dream, I can highly recommend this excursion.

Was a great experience. Nice guides and good service. They clearly do their work with great passion and pleasure
