Wonderful outing! We had to postpone the day trip due to the waves being too big. The guide apologized a thousand times when it was not his fault. The next day we had a wonderful afternoon! Everything was perfect according to the program, boat in a small group of 10 people and adorable guides (boat and bus)! Thank you!

We went to Laganas beach first and checked out the turtle nests. Then we went out with the glass boat and were able to observe the common turtle. The bays and the water was the highlight of the trip. The water is turquoise-blue and very clear. At the end we were at the oil press and were able to try some olive oils. As a conclusion, we drove to the Cameo Island which was not on the plan, but was still very nice.

We enjoyed our tour to Marathonisi and Keri Caves. We were picked up on time and there were only 6 of us in the tour group. We firstly stopped at Kalamaki beach to see the turtle nests and our guide gave us some information about the turtles, which was interesting. We then proceeded to Laganas to get on the boat to turtle island and the caves. It was very chaotic with lots of people waiting for boats and we were left here by our guide to get on a boat with lots of others not from our tour. The boat trip was enjoyable, as we saw several turtles and then proceeded to the caves, which included a stop for swimming in the beautiful crystal blue waters. We then had a stop at Marathonisi , which was incredibly busy. After returning to land, we visited the olive oil press which was really interesting and we were able to sample and purchase the olive oil. There was no pressure to buy anything which was nice. . We finally visited cameo island at the perfect time to take sunset photos.
