What people are saying about Halkidiki

The guide was super nice and explained a lot to us beginners. We dived at an incredibly beautiful dive site and really got a lot to see for our money. On the positive side, the diving instructor realized on the day of the dive that the risk of a weather change was too high and we could still catch up on this flexibly the next day. Always happy.

If you want to see Sithonia's beauty from the sea and enjoying it being close to the nature, then it's a must activity.

Perfect tour, with many beautiful places and secret beaches to discover!

It was very beautiful and so uncomplicated! We would book it again!

Emilios was at and so patient with us, we had a great time!
