Great tour! Our guide picked us up from our hotel and gave us great information about the island and places to see! He came with us on the boat and was a fantastic photographer for us as we visited the blue caves and shipwreck beach. The boar captain was extremely skilled and flexible to what we wanted to see and how much time we wanted to spend on the beach. The organizer was extremely helpful and communicative, and was flexible on start time which was great for us as we flew to the island that morning and needed a later start!

The trip was amazing! We did the early one at 9am. A pick up from our hotel was organised. Everyone was absolutely friendly and nice. The boat was waiting for us up arrival. Our captain was more than amazing- very knowledgeable about the area, showed around the caves and we managed to see some hidden spots as well outside of The Blue Caves and Shipwreck beach. We just had a lovely trip around the coast and some breathtaking views as well! It is worth every penny to book with them! Will definitely book again when I come back!

Start to finish an excellent experience. Clean spacious and private transport to the harbor where we boarded our boat. Don’t wince at the early start time- by the time you leave Navagio beach the giant tourist vessels are arriving. Our captain expertly navigated the caves and brought us to a isolated beach to play with iur young daughters before returning. The caves were a really cool bonus!

What a fantastic tour and team supporting! It was raining so the boat was a bit delayed, so the team took us on a scenic drive around the island to kill some time. Once we arrived at the dock, we got right on the tour boat and just had the greatest time! Thanks to all for making such a spectacular experience for our family.

Super beautiful. First to the shipwreck. Got the time to stay there for an hour. Then to the blue caves. Wow so beautiful. Very impressive and nice to really get into it. Super nice captains. Good consultation.
