I went kayaking with my wife on our honeymoon. This activity was the best activity my wife and I experienced out of our entire 9 day trip in Santorini. The host was kind, welcoming, and light-hearted. They showed us such a wonderful time and left many options up to our group to ensure that we enjoyed the trip to the utmost extent. There was also a lot included in the tour - food, transportation, wine, water, snorkeling gear…. And the cost was very fair given the amount provided. I highly recommend this excursion to anyone staying in Santorini.

If you’re looking to do a kayak trip look no further. Kalioppi and her team is fantastic. She’s super sweet, makes an AMAZING meal, is just the perfect human for this experience. She treats you like family and takes you on a great kayaking journey through some caves and then to a stop to cliff jump. Her smiles continue throughout the trip and her love for kayaking is very much noticeable. Was my favorite activity we did in Santorini.

The whole adventure was fabulous. Kostas was an entertaining guide. The pace was relaxed and we enjoyed the information he gave about the geology. Our needs were accommodated well and we were comfortable in the cool windy evening with the borrowed wind-breaker coats and water shoes.

I loved the guides! (so patient, knowledgeable, and sweet!) They showed us more of the beauty of Santorini, and provided everything we needed for this experience! The picnic was so delicious and filling! I am so glad I got to have this experience!

This has been the best kayaking experience ever. If I ever go back to Greece, I would like to visit the instructors because they make you feel the warmth.
