2. From Agia Efimia: Day Cruise to Ithaki Island with Lunch

Bright and early in the morning, set sail for your first stop Polis Beach. While there, take the opportunity to see the eastern shore of Kefalonia, including its beautiful bays. Your first stop rewards you with stunning coastal views, complete with a marvelous pebbled shore and crystal clear, beautiful water. Your time at Polis Beach eventually concludes with a snack and a drink, before you set sail for Kioni Village - a neoclassical gem flowing amphitheatrically down to the sea. As you sail north along Ithaca’s coast, take in views of the popular village of Fiscardo in Kefalonia. Continuing to sail, approach Kioni for a long stopover. As you enjoy your swimming/snorkeling, the crew prepares a traditional Greek lunch. This lunch is later served on board along with soft drinks, beer, and local wine. Following lunch, continue sailing to the east coast of Ithaca, enjoying views of the magnificent Vathy Bay as well as other charming beaches. Your next destination is Gidaki Beach, considered by many to be the best beach in Ithaca. The turquoise blue waters and the natural landscape with its scenic, lush vegetation impress every visitor. The bay is open, ideal for swimming from one side to the other. Over the water, you can see one of the small islands of Ithaca, Atokos. As you enjoy the sun or swim around, your crew prepares a variety of fruit for dessert. Following this, we set sail back to Agia Efimia where your arrival at the port is estimated at 6:20 PM.

This was a great day out with our guide Theodore who was friendly and helpful, giving us lots of information about the area and answering all our questions. He also volunteered to take family photos at all the scenic viewpoints. The minibus tour was great but the high light of the trip had to be the boat excursion to Navagio (shipwreck) beach where you get to spend an hour before being taken to the blue caves. I was amazed how far they took the boat in to the caves, we were lucky that at one of the caves the water was not too choppy and were able to take a quick swim here too. Theodore didn’t join us on the boat trip but his colleague Kostas was also very pleasant. After the boat trip there is a quick lunch stop at a local taverna which was okay - my wife says her prawns were amazing. A quick stop at the oldest olive tree on the island and then back to be dropped if at our accommodation. A thouroughly good day and I felt it was great value.

It was a very varied and great day. You could feel his joy and openness with our guide Dennis, he was also extremely attentive to the group and distributed water to everyone at the beginning (even if according to the description this was not included). Above all, we appreciated his friendly and easy-going manner. Dennis also always asked about our well-being and shaped the trip with a lot of humor. We would definitely recommend the trip, we were able to explore the popular parts of the island and see all the beaches as per the plan. The trip to the shipwreck was one of our big highlights! There were plenty of opportunities for eating/drinking breaks and toilet stops throughout the program.

We were picked up on time in a clean, well-air-conditioned bus. The tour was great. We stopped at many places but were told early on that we wouldn't be able to visit Shipwreck Beach due to high winds that day. Although we weren't able to visit the beach, we did get to visit one of the farms on the island and learned a lot about the history of the farm, met some animals and got to try some delicious wine! Dennis was a lovely tour guide and I'd happily book the tour again.

We were very happy with this tour. Our guide was Spiros, he explained and showed us a lot, he also made himself available as a photographer. The way to photograph the Shipwreck Beach was really awesome! All the stops were great, there was enough time to take pictures and/or swim. We can really only recommend this tour. Many thanks to Spiros and his team!

Little bit late to pick up, but experience with this price was excellent!
