The ride was great, the transfer worked perfectly and everything was easy to find. The boat was a bit crowded in my opinion but well what the heck. Otherwise, beautiful points are approached and you can take fantastic pictures. The stopover in the city is very pleasant and you have enough time to look around the small town and enjoy 1-2 beers on the promenade. I would do it again

We had a great day on the boat. Very well organized cruise with a guide at the top! Superb landscapes! We were able to swim despite the weather (overcast sky and rain at the end of the day), very rough seas at times. During the day we took a break of one hour to swim and 2 hours in the small village of Paxos, the rest of the time on the boat. Remember to cover up well if the sun is not at the meeting. The return was done in music with a dj and dancers. Activity to do without hesitation!!

I write this review in comparison with another trip, similar, that I did last year in Cyprus. Also via this app. Compared to that one, this one was way more expensive for what it offered. Nonetheless, the experience was nice. The small village we visited was cute, but nothing wow, the blue caves were interesting, but again, nothing wow and the water from Antipaxos island was indeed extremely blue and awesome to jump in and enjoy. The guide was awesome, fun and knowledgeable. The crew on the boat was super nice and they even made some sort of barbecue for us (not included in the price) and of course....the bar and the DJ that played music on the way back. Nice experience overall. I used the app despite the price because I ve used it many times before in other countries and it is extremely convenient to have the pick up service from your hotel (they came and took us right from the hotel -keep in mind that s not always possible, depending on the location, so ask ahead).
