What people are saying about Vlichada

From start to finish my teenage daughter and I really enjoyed this experience. We were picked up from near to our hotel and taken to the harbour to board the boat. The staff were friendly and professional throughout the tour and nothing was too much trouble. The BBQ was delicious and the whole trip was so relaxing. The scenery of Santorini is stunning and it was amazing to get a different perspective of the island. Only slight disappointment is that we did not get closer to the island but was still a brilliant afternoon/evening.

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.

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!

We had the most amazing experience. The boat crew were all super friendly and knowledgeable. The food was absolutely fantastic.

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