Exploring Milos by boat is fantastic, there are so many beaches only accessible by boat. Our guide, Dora was brilliant! She is extremely knowledgeable and makes sure everyone on board is comfortable and enjoying themselves. The swimming spots were amazing and the food was delicious! Thanks for a great trip!

Fantastic day! Worth the money! Had a great guide (Dora) who was constantly smiling and created a great atmosphere. Lots of food and drinks available. The sites we went to were all incredible. Remember to bring plenty of sunscreen because it is a big day in the sun!

Loved it! Miltos and Dora were amazing, met really nice people on the tour and we even hung out together afterwards. Was super well fed on the boat, the water was sooo beautiful. It was awesome and one of the highlights of my trip!
