What people are saying about Halkidiki

The experience was unforgettable! I am grateful for the driver who picked us up as agreed and for the care that all the people involved took of us. The beaches that we visited are among the most beautiful I have ever seen. As I said earlier, this was an unforgettable experience, well worth the money and I will be doing it again next time for sure!

Amazing Day with Greg on his boat yesterday. I made a mistake with dates so we were late but nothing was a problem and Greg let us stay later than planned to make up the time even though it was my mistake. Beautiful stops for snorkelling and the kids loved the SUP board really fantastic day would highly recommend it.

We really enjoyed our trip, seeing different monasteries and spending some time on Ammouliani island (you get about 1,5h to spend here. There is a snackbar on the beach or you can bring some food if your own). Make sure to be on time in the morning so you get a good spot in the boat. Staf is very friendly!

Staff very friendly and helpful. The view it’s something fantastic. One of the best choice to do in holiday. Good music, nice view and close friends. I would recommend

The pictures do not do the activity justice!! It was absolutely wonderful. Friendly staff all around and the lunch was also good.
