As an experience, wonderful. Cheerful, professional crew. Astonishingly good value. We had a fantastic time. Thoroughly recommend if you have a spare day in your holiday and want to see Symi for a short time, and relax and enjoy for the rest of the day.

The pick-up/drop-off went smoothly, the small island of Symi is beautiful and really worth a visit. Staying in the monastery was also an experience for me. I really enjoyed the time at sea. It was an unforgettable day
