What people are saying about Vlichada

Our catamaran tour was everything we'd hoped it would be. With a small group of travelers (9 of us in total) we had plenty of room to mingle if we desired or find a spot to keep to ourselves on the boat. Our boat was in excellent condition, the crew were very kind & attentive, all our wants & needs were met. The lunch was divine & HUGE. We are thrilled that we booked this & highly recommend it to any other Santorini visitors.

Excellent cruise for a short period of time we stayed in Santorini. Staff are very accommodating and always making sure they meet our needs. We had a great time sailing around the island. Highly recommended while in Santorini! I will surely book this again on my next visit to Santorini.

Perfect cruise, boat is very nice and decorated with lots of seating options. Drinks really are unlimited and my glass was never empty. Would skip on the snacks part as it was not the nicest, just wait for dinner at a restaurant. Can’t recommend this enough.

Great value for money: Nice small group experience around the island. you get to see a bunch of things while relaxing with your drink and food :) I would highly recommend!

The food was great, the tours was great and the staff was very friendly. I'd highly recommend this tour!
