One of the highlights of our two weeks in Greece

We're so glad we chose this boat tour out of the many that were offered. The boat was immaculate, safe and very well-organized. The crew was superb - informative, helpful and supportive. The lunch exceeded expectations in every way, with a wide variety of proteins, excellent salad, pasta, bread and tzatziki. The chance to snorkel and swim around the volcano was a great surprise. The tour was just the right amount of time to see many of this beautiful island's sites.
