Unforgettable day

We were taken care of by the coaching team for all the safety instructions, it is very serious, nothing is left to chance and throughout the hike great caution and very good support. Adonis is super nice as well as Dimitri they had prepared a delicious picnic for us with super delicious mama figs. A lot of explanations on the site and the history of the Adonis volcano is full of humor and great knowledge of the island. We had a very pleasant day and will be back next year for sure. Big thank you to all three of you but I forgot the first name of the 3rd guide. The small drawback is that we do not speak English and the guides do not speak French.

So fun and wonderful way to see the island!

We had such an enjoyable day kayaking, snorkeling and swimming. We got to see 2 beaches of the island: red beach and white beach. The kayaking instructors were excellent, knowledgeable and led us when in the waters. Harris was our guide and he also took photos of us throughout the trip which allowed us to leave our phones safely behind on land. Harris also gave us the opportunity to jump off a small cliff which was incredible. A picnic was also provided including fresh watermelon. The location is also great with lots of lovely places to eat nearby, and is just down the road from the Akrotiri escalations site. All in all this was such a great experience - for families or for anyone wanting to explore the island in a more unique way whilst also doing some exercise.

This was such an awesome experience. You get to see some incredible views of the island, they gave us a good amount of breaks, and the guides were so much fun. They made us a fantastic lunch and told us some great stories about Santorini’s history. Overall, this was probably my favorite experience on the island!
