Wir haben die Reise kurzfristig gebucht. Und waren super Happy Wir wurden an unserem Hotel abgeholt und an den Hafen, aus dem das Segelboot abgefahren ist, gebracht. Auf dem Boot waren wir mit insgesamt 14 Personen inkl. Crew. Jeder hatte ausreichend Platz. Die Crew ist herzlich und zuvorkommend. Neben einem Badestop in einer wundervollen Bucht, haben wir einen leckeren Lunch zubereitet bekommen und eine interessante Führung auf der Insel Delos erhalten. Dank des Windes konnten wir durch das Meer segeln. Eine hervorragende Tour, sehr zu empfehlen!

This was an amazing tour! Loved the time soaking up the sun, swimming, THE FOOD they provided, and the tour of Delos. It was absolutely beautiful and the crew members were all kind and attentive. If only it weren’t so windy, but we can’t control the weather. A wonderful experience and I’m so glad it was a relatively small and intimate group of folks. The Yacht itself was also really nice and had plenty of room to spread out, if desired. Will definitely check out Sunfos Alessia Yachting again the next time I’m in Greece.

Amazing experience! We really enjoyed ourselves. The crew is extremely friendly and nice. The food served is delicious. Delos your was very thorough and informative. I recommend this experience to whoever visits Mykonos. I can’t wait to come back with the family and do it again.

Amazing experience and very friendly staff! The food was good and there was music on board ! Highly recommended as an activity to do if you are in Mykonos for a few days!

Great experience, not to be compared to a normal Delia tour.
