Overall rating

(6 reviews)

The team at Dassia Ski club were amazing. They had to reschedule our activities the following day as the weather was unsuitable for the activities, communication was always on point. Me and my partner had fun for his birthday, especially the inflatables. George and spiros and the crew were informative when we weren’t too experienced in SUP, and put safety first when paragliding. Nearly had whiplash at inflatables but it was fun 🤣

We really enjoyed the activity, had a lot of fun and had an unforgettable day and experience. The town of Gios is definitely worth a visit and we were also very impressed by the caves. We had a lot of fun jumping from the boat in the bathing bay. I would book the activity again and again.

It was a very cool experience! The guide was helpful and calm, and everything was very professional. The views from above were amazing and worth the money! Highly recommend!

Great places and views that we wouldn't have found on our own (only with the travel guide as a book).

First time doing it and loved it , staff are very welcoming too
