What people are saying about Aegean Sea

This was amazing tour! The boat was very comfortable (20 people but plenty of space) and the crew was so lovely and so friendly…everything was organized very well. You could tell they’ve done this 100 times but made it a point to make sure it was special and everyone had a great time. Just a beautiful experience, even if you’re not a boat person or haven’t enjoyed boat tours in the past. (just do it!) I would recommend this to family and friends and would do it again if I was in Santorini.

Our catamaran tour was everything we'd hoped it would be. With a small group of travelers (9 of us in total) we had plenty of room to mingle if we desired or find a spot to keep to ourselves on the boat. Our boat was in excellent condition, the crew were very kind & attentive, all our wants & needs were met. The lunch was divine & HUGE. We are thrilled that we booked this & highly recommend it to any other Santorini visitors.

The entire experience went smoothly from pick up at the hotel to disembarkment. Food was great, service was excellent, scenery was spectacular!

The food was great, the tours was great and the staff was very friendly. I'd highly recommend this tour!

Amazing - would recommend and we made great friends!
