Our driver Mr. Giovanni was great! The whole trip was so smooth. We were 4 people and we were dropped at elafonisi Beach first and asked to meet in 3 hours. We had enough time to spend the way we wanted to. Next we left for Falassarna beach and there, there was a beach club we could eat, drink or use the cabana/sunbed (chargeable 10-30 eur). But very good. Overall a good experience. We left at 9 and were back by 6.30 PM

Jon the driver was chatty but not over the top. 8 of us with plenty of space for everyone. Air-con so we were all very comfortable. Both beaches were amazing. It is a long journey to get to the first beach but each journey after that was about 1.5 hours. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

Christine and Costas were amazing. Both were so helpful and attentive. They provided a lot of knowledge and accommodated my dietary needs, I have no faults at all to mention! This is one of my favourite excursions ever and would highly recommend! Thank you for giving us all a great day!

Great tour, two nice young men who explained everything, kept checking on you, drove here in a motorboat. Fantastic bay and unbelievably beautiful colors of the water, absolutely amazing! Basic fitness is necessary, although jet skiing on the open sea is strenuous for beginners.

Excellent. Perfect amount of time spent at both Elafonisi and Falassarna beaches. Great way to meet fellow travellers. Driver was very pleasant and affable and drove really well through all the windy roads.
