What people are saying about Cyclades
Of our 2 week honeymoon in Greece this was the best experience of the whole trip. First of all, Niko as our captain and Anna as our hostess were both incredible. They were so friendly and personable we literally felt like they were family within 10 minutes of starting the trip. They took us to some amazing sites with a great mix of sightseeing, swimming and relaxing on the boat. They always gave us great information about each site and pointed out great spots for pictures. Anna was even a great photographer taking a lot of amazing photos for us! Niko took us to an amazing private swimming spot away from the rest of the boats out that day. The boat itself was gorgeous and clean. The meal cooked on the boat was amazing a great mix of meats and seafood that were really tasty. Overall I would recommend this experience to anyone, especially if you can get Niko and Anna. It felt luxurious and private we could not have asked for anything more.
Family owned boat, had 3 generations working on board. Nice music playing, cushions to sit on, they knew when it was gonna get rough and advised where to sit to avoid getting sprayed. Amazing BarBQ lunch cooked and served on board. Nice swim spot ( had to avoid Jelly fish on our day) The ruins on Delos were incredible! Highly recommend this day trip for anyone interested in ancient history or just getting out for a sail and swim.
Perfect end of the day in Santorini! Crew was helpful and gave good stories about places that we visited with boat. Tasty dinner and drinks while boating! We were 16 people and everyone had enough place to sunbath and relax.
We had a great, almost private tour as there were only four of us. Many thanks to Christina and Nikos, you did a great job. Since we were only in Santorini for 2 days, the tour was perfect
Very enjoyable! Gregory was an excellent tour guide with a lot of useful and interesting information about wine and about Santorini in general. Highly recommend.
