The most fabulous day!

We had just the best time on this sunset sailing cruise! We have all been on many boat trips before but all agreed that this was by far the best. The boat was the perfect size for four of us - lots of room to watch stunning Santorini sail by and catch some sunshine rays. The food was fantastic! A great selection of chicken, prawns and mussels served with Tatiana's special rice, Greek salad, tzatziki and bread followed by a platter of the freshest juiciest fruit. And plenty of free flowing delicious white wine and beer. Had a great time swimming in the clear blue sea and none of us had ever seen a sunset so beautiful. Spiros and Tatiana were wonderful! Great fun and very knowledgeable and could not have been any more helpful. We would highly recommend the sunset sailing cruise with Spiros and Tatiana to anyone.
