”This was the highlight of my travels around Greece, I visited many islands but I won’t forget this sailing trip. From our driver who picked us up from our hostel to the captain and his assistant were so friendly and so much fun. The food they made was all fresh and made by the captain, there were unlimited alcohol and water. The sunset was unforgettable, I will remember this for a lifetime”
”If you’re looking for a day full of beautiful landscapes, a breathtaking sunset, the stories of the island by the captain, a delicious greek meal cooked by locals, the company of friendly people and the experience of a real sailboat then this is what you need! We had a truly awesome time and we would definitely go again”.
