What people are saying about Paros

Our experience in general was amazing. The explanation of the winemaking process was very interesting and all of the tastings that were included were delicious and beautiful. our guide Dora was very knowledgeable about wine and wine making process and the wines of Santorini. Dora was also very attentive and responsive to the members of our group. I enjoyed the cooking class as well however I would make a couple of recommendations. it might have been more fun if we were allowed to do a little bit more of the actual cooking instead of it being mostly demonstration. Also they need to have better knives for the cooking class. The day overall was loads of fun and I would do it again.

This was an amazing tour and experience. The captain was a fantastic sailer and guide. His boat was well maintained and immaculate in terms of cleanliness. The food was wonderful and our group of 9 was a great mix of personalities and nationalities to spend 9 hours with. We visited two stunning smaller islands and a beautiful cliff area of Naxos. Highly recommend this experience with Costas on The Lady K to anyone interested in discovering the little known areas of the lesser Cyclades.

This was the best thing we did on our trip! The Captain and the first mate were lovely. We stopped at several swim spots and had snacks, lunch, and dessert. The whole day was perfect.

Everyone has said it, the day was a Joy! I had my reservations but by the end of the day, and by how quickly the day went, it was just so much fun. Highly recommended.

Friendly staff, great locations and plenty of time to swim and explore
