We went on a trip as a family of 4, including a daughter of 10. we were all delighted. Dimitris explained to us the rules of kayaking. We were all delighted. The trip was in a small group of 8 people, so we felt safe and cared for. Dimitris took us to a beautiful beach where we could also swim. He told interesting stories about these places. Everyone got a large snack and a supply of water, so we didn't have to worry about anything. This is the most beautiful trip of our stay in Greece. Even our daughter, although at first she was a little afraid of the waves, later sang happily while rowing and after 4 hours did not want to end the trip. Dimitris also took beautiful photos of us, so it was a nice to keep these memories. This is our most beautiful trip in Greece. The views, beauty of the beaches and colors of the water are unforgettable! I definitely recommend a trip with Dimitri, you can see that he loves what he does and puts his heart and care into it.

Dimitris is a great guide takes you to very nice spots to snorkel and chill on the beach. I went with my son (11) and we had an amazing experience. We also really liked the food and drinks Dimitris had prepared. Photo’s and video’s were included and atmosphere was very relaxed! Definitely recommend it!

I really liked the whole trip - very friendly staff, good food, bar stock, time spent on different beaches, punctuality. Nice people on the ship. Only the seagulls didn't like it, I guess they weren't hungry ;)

And we really enjoyed the kayak tour with Dimitris. He made a lot of effort and explained everything really well. Each kayak also got a cooler with drinks and snacks. We would definitely recommend the tour 😊

Dimitris is the Best! Thank you for the perfect kajaktour!!! It was amazing.
