Was a bit late with the pickup, over an hour wait. Other than that amazing experience. Booked for me and my husband. He could not participate as he has an upset stomach sadly.

Beautiful locations to visit and swim in the Aegean. Helpful staff. The Cleopatra island is an extra nominal charge, and worth the exploration and experience.

Lovely relaxing day, nice lunch and saw several large turtles.

So much fun, I absolutely loved it!!! Did not want it to end!

Really enjoyed the excision. Definitely a must do.
