Worth it!

Me and my family/friends all took the private 5 hour sunset tour and it was worth every penny! We can’t stop gushing about it. The crew was so accommodating and friendly, the food was delicious, the scenery was gorgeous- I think this will end up being a highlight of our trip!

The best experience in Santorini!

This private cruise was one of the best things we did in Santorini. We checked the port/cruise ship schedules to see the busiest days so we could avoid being in town while all the visitors flooded the streets and decided on a day to take this catamaran cruise. We're so glad we did this. Christo and Stefania were an amazing team, giving us the best service throughout the day. The meal was fantastic as well! We felt so relaxed and just happy by the end of the cruise. Highly recommend this experience!

Fantastic Experience!!!

Absolutely amazing from start to finish. We were picked up from our hotel and taken directly to the boat. The team on board were very friendly And couldn’t do enough for us! We enjoyed 3 swimming stops, amazing food cooked from scratch and watched the sunset. I would absolutely highly recommend this cruise to anyone! The value for money for the trip and experience is so worth it!
