      We loved every bit of our boat experienced. We booked the sunset traditional boat tour, which turned out to be great: it never gets crowded as they only allow a maximum of 10 people on the boat. It was too windy, so we could not go to the Hot Springs... but the backup plan the stuff organised was just as cool. We spent some time in a quiet little bay, where the water was as blue and clear as it could gets and full of colourful fish. We then had dinner there (very early!!! 17.20) and sailed to the Red Beach, where we enjoyed one last dip in the sea while admiring the splendid golden hour. We were then approached by a catamaran of the same tour organisation, with whom we partied for a while... we had so much fun!! And the little kids on the other boat loved it as well. In the end, we enjoyed the sunset while returning to the harbour. The staff was lovely!!! Would definitely recommend!!

      Great ride on a small old Greek boat

      Beautiful sunset cruise on a small Greek boat (10 people maximum) departure 3.30 p.m. return 7.30 p.m. to the port. Very nice crew who knew how to make us enjoy a sumptuous sunset far from the hordes of overcrowded maxi catas with a full sound system. Greek meal with very friendly unlimited drink. Really happy with our afternoon

      Excellent trip, small group and we had a lot of fun. The food was good, the crew were excellent as well. The views are just to die for and taking the sunset cruise wa perfect for us. Just the right amount of time on the boat and to swim as well. The driver picked us up with plenty of time, although they never confirmed what time they would come to get us, but we were waiting for them about 2pm (when the tour officially started 3:30pm). All in all, great value for money and awesome experience. We wanted a more traditional and smaller boat, rather than the more- touristy ones that we encountered on the way with lots of people on board and a tacky 'dancer' & show on board.
