Well worth it!

My fiance and I had a fantastic time on the Catamaran with Iro and Demetrios! The sailing was a lot of fun and very relaxing! Iro looked after us the entire time and also provided interesting history about Santorini and the surrounding islands along the way. Although it was nearing the winter season still got a chance to swim which was nice and relaxing but best of all was the bbq lunch, best food we've had on the entire trip! Full credit to the crew for making this an unforgettable experience. Would 100% recommend this tour!
