The experience was incredible, the organization and the staff on board as the guide were great. I had a great time, and the landscapes were brutal. The food they offer was very delicious. If I came back I would repeat without hesitation. Furthermore, it was a great feeling to return with the sunset and the party that was held.

We enjoyed this boat tour, the crew were very friendly and on top they had dancers on the boat at the end of the tour. And visiting Paxos and Antipaxos was totally worth it, the beaches over there are amazing.

Good activity, the tour of the islands is free and with enough time to eat and walk around. Same with the swimming stop, the views are incredible!
