Absolutely fantastic trip where the most beautiful beaches and the most beautiful water were shown. Stopped in Paxos which is a really cozy and beautiful island. The only minus was that that day there was a lot of wind and therefore big waves, so people screamed several times and threw up. It wasn't very cool. But apart from that, it was an absolutely perfect trip that I would take again at any time - on a quiet day without wind and waves.

Highly recommend. Amazing day out in the blue, blue waters. Well organised and great fun. Get there early to secure good seats on the boat. One of my best days ever with amazing memories.

Parga is a typical coastal town, its church is worth visiting. Very nice! The best of the trip is the Blue Lagoon!!! The worst thing about the boat trip is that it is very long.

If you have a very cool day with the captain, nothing to say thank you I recommend

המדריך היה מצויין ומקצוען. כל תהליך השייט החל מרישום ועד סיומו היה מושלם
