Joe our tour guide was warm, welcoming and overall very personable and patient. He took the time to get to know each of the people there and develop a rapport. The kayaking trip was lovely and relaxing, the right sort of distance for a half day trip. food provided included fresh fruit and lovely sandwiches from a local bakery. Would reccomend it to anyone looking for an active way to see the coastline.

Highly recommend and make sure to book it early! We would like to join the sunset group and we found which was fully sold out 3 days prior to the event. We were glad to join Joe in the morning group. Everything is great, the sea, the view and most importantly the young, energetic but experienced team. We would like to do it again if we have chance to go back to Akrotiri. Thanks

Adonis and Joe were so wonderful! They made sure everyone felt engaged in the activities and also ensured we all were safe throughout the entire experience. Kayaking itself was so fun! The water was crystal blue and refreshing, and we got to see various beaches with our picnic stop at white beach which is only accessible by water. We snorkled there and swam through a mini tunnel in a rock - absolutely stunning! Adonis took many photos for us so we didn’t have to bring our phones! Both him and Joe were knowledgeable and super fun guides! 10/10 would recommend!
