We went on a trip as a family of 4, including a daughter of 10. we were all delighted. Dimitris explained to us the rules of kayaking. We were all delighted. The trip was in a small group of 8 people, so we felt safe and cared for. Dimitris took us to a beautiful beach where we could also swim. He told interesting stories about these places. Everyone got a large snack and a supply of water, so we didn't have to worry about anything. This is the most beautiful trip of our stay in Greece. Even our daughter, although at first she was a little afraid of the waves, later sang happily while rowing and after 4 hours did not want to end the trip. Dimitris also took beautiful photos of us, so it was a nice to keep these memories. This is our most beautiful trip in Greece. The views, beauty of the beaches and colors of the water are unforgettable! I definitely recommend a trip with Dimitri, you can see that he loves what he does and puts his heart and care into it.

Very nice and friendly tour guide and also a great bus driver. The tour was very well planned, the bus is well equipped with AC and power sockets. The restaurant was fine. I had better food for less money, it’s obviously a tourist heavy region but you can also not attend the restaurant and just stroll around the area or go somewhere else. The information during the drive was helpful and we also got relevant information about the surroundings.

Everything was great! 😃 The crew of the boat was very professional and funny. He prepared a very tasty organic meal ( traditional home-made food with wine and fruit salad). During the whole cruise, the captain made sure we all were safe, entertained and happy. I FULLY RECCOMEND THIS SAILING CRUISE! You won't regret booking it... Money well spent! 😊👍Beautiful memories from vacation in 🇬🇷Greece! Thank you, cpt. Makis! ⚓
