Overall rating

This was an amazing experience! We were able to stop at three separate locations and swim around some caves. The boat driver was so amazing and silly! I will say though that when we called for directions to find the location (because we booked online and the google maps location was not exactly where the meeting point was) that the lady cussed at me in Greek not knowing I am a fluent native speaker as I was speaking to her in English. Very rude and unprofessional. She also then mocked and mimicked us when we arrived.

Absolutely amazing! Our guide (Rory?) was so nice, the boat was very comfortable and the stops we did were breathtaking! The trip is not too long, not too short. We also had a sandwich for lunch. Everything was perfect, I highly recommend this tour if you are in Ios. Never Bay is beautiful and Tripiti beach is the definitely the most beautiful beach of the island.

The tour guide was very friendly and taught us a lot about Milos. We saw a lot of beautiful places. There were even some surprises. Simply a great thank you. The tour is very interesting and definitely recommended. Many thanks to the tour guide for this wonderful experience.

Excellent. No complaints. There were not many people on the tour. I think I got see everything there is to see in Milos. Would recommend!

Amazing trip! Took us to private beaches and tour guide was so informative
