What people are saying about Naxos

A great day despite the wind, the captain offered us alternative routes so that we could have a great day, and we bathed in turquoise waters with very nice views. The crew is very pleasant, we talked a lot with Modesto who taught us a lot about Greece, Naxos and the surrounding islands. We were treated to several refreshments, meals and snacks during the day. Anyway, I recommend this cruise to anyone going to Naxos.

We had a great sampling of many delicious different foods and learned about the history and cuisine of Naxos. The tour was through a beautiful area of the old town and ended by the Port. Great guide, highly recommend!
