Very interesting tour, also very entertaining with children. The small cut-out glass floor in the middle of the ship is nice, but you don't see much in this region, so it's not a special attraction. The explanations of the monasteries along the coast are multilingual, although more detailed descriptions are provided only in English, while only a short version is provided in other languages. So always be careful with the English part. You can stay outdoors at the very front of the ship, otherwise everything is indoors and covered. There is also a bar with snacks and drinks at fair prices.

We really enjoyed our trip, seeing different monasteries and spending some time on Ammouliani island (you get about 1,5h to spend here. There is a snackbar on the beach or you can bring some food if your own). Make sure to be on time in the morning so you get a good spot in the boat. Staf is very friendly!

Staff very friendly and helpful. The view it’s something fantastic. One of the best choice to do in holiday. Good music, nice view and close friends. I would recommend

Everything went perfectly, from the booking to the end of the boat tour. The boat is a very nice size. Very informative and relaxed tour.

The experience was amazing. From the boat, to the guide, the service and the places visited. It was truly magical. A must.
