HIGHLY recommend this tour! Khalifa was an awesome guide kind, informative & passionate about the topics. We saw a sea turtle on the boat tour thanks to our amazing captain, the water & landscapes were breathtaking. Olive press museum was more enjoyable than I had expected, don't forget to try some of the cosmetic products. Don't pay 5EUR to enter the island across the bridge, theres nothing to see that the tour hasn't already shown you except for a keyring with your photo on it.

This tour takes you to Keri Caves which is definitely the most beautiful part of the island. The water, the caves and remote beaches are indescribable! There is no stop for lunch but you can grab something at Turtle island which has boat bars if you need. Tour guide was super nice and the quick stop for the tasting at Olive Museum was also fun :) highly recommend it!

Great tour, great guide, great captain! Beautiful places! Always a pleasure!

Enough done and seen. You get enough water, very nice

Beautiful experience. Friendly and exclusive guide
