Our group of four included ages ranging from 13 to 67. We all had an incredible time and loved this tour. Henry was very engaging and knowledgeable. He also took the time to talk to my 13 year old about sailing and showed him how to lower and raise the anchor. Jumping off the side of the boat into the clear blue water was surreal. The 15 year old girl in our party said she felt like she was living out her Mama Mia dreams. :-) The food was INCREDIBLE! Full of flavor, fresh ingredients and plenty to go around.

Great experience that I would definitely do again is that I recommend to anyone who comes to mykonos. Kindness, fun and relaxation are the 3 adjectives that describe the whole day. The exceptional staff, of an unparalleled delicacy not to mention the delicious food they prepared for us !! Delightful. Thanks for a nice day together

Transfer very well organized, we have plenty of time to visit Delos in the morning, k arrival at 2 p.m. in Mykonos leaves more than 3 hours to walk there. The crew is very helpful. There is no guide just the transfers

So friendly, amazing boat, great lunch and rosé! We had a great time! They arranged our transport there and everything

An absolutely wonderful experience that we would recommend to everyone! Absolutely must when you are in Mykonos.
