What people are saying about Adamantas

A MUST tour, especially of Kleftiko! Our captain Stavros and his aid Forest were incredibly friendly and catered to our every need. They kept repeating they were there to take care of us and help us enjoy the trip. The food was great (included nutella sandwiches, macaroni with octopus, potato salad, chicken, Greek salad, fresh fruit, and as many beers, wine, ouzo, soft drinks and water as we wanted. Stavros' tour of all the caves was incredible and hands down one of the best parts of our entire Milos trip. He was very knowledgeable and adept at guiding the dinghy into the narrow caves. Forest was our photo "paparazzi" and took great pics of our family on the boat and in the water. Stavros also took pics of us in the caves. Overall I can't say enough about the crew and all the places we stopped and saw. I highly recommend the full day tour so you can see multiple spots and don't feel rushed at any one.

The sites we have visited, spectacular. The guide, Dora, a charm, very nice and worrying about each one of us all the time. We booked a day in advance and everything was great. An unforgettable experience.

Highly recommend, the crew were attentive and gave a great overview of the areas history, lunch was delicious, views and water were spectacular

Great boat trip. You see things that otherwise you wouldn’t be able to visit. Worth the expense.

Both the activity and the treatment of the two employees were great, highly recommended!
