What people are saying about Halkidiki

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!

Love it! The guide Stefanos was super friendly and explain us the rules and the tour was relaxing and super nice. It was our first time with the kayak and we love it. I think will buy our own kayak ❤️

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

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

It was a very nice experience, at first we were a bit exited. But during the course we felt safe and it was very fun.
