It was good activity, sailing around in private cruise. The hosts were really good , cooked us really good meal. showed us around the places in boat. The boat was not able to park on any of the beach or shores, as the bottom part underneath boat was big. But that wasn't really necessary as we were enjoying the view from boat.

10/10 would do the tour again! The food, music, and swimming were spot on. There were many different age groups, but the crew did an amazing job of bringing everyone together for a really fun experience :)

This was awesome! We started our Santorini trip with this cruise and we had a blast meeting new people, visiting the beaches, eating the greek food and all the wine!!

Great activity! Magnificent landscapes! A great welcome with the support staff just incredible!

Very enjoyable day with our flexible driver/guide.
