Panos, the skipper of Alex Boat, could not have been neither more professional nor more pleasant. The four hour sunset private tour was the true highlight of our one week stay in Santorini. Experiencing Santorini and its sunset from the sea was truly a unique experience. It was worth the investment. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic day !!! Panos is THE host for the island of Santorini. My husband and I wanted to spend an afternoon swimming in the Caldera and we had an afternoon to remember. Panos shared his knowledge of the Caldera which made the private swimming and snorkeling more interesting. After our morning swim in the hot springs and private... More

After sitting on a terrace overlooking the caldera for 6 days, it was time to be on the water. Panos was the perfect guide and host. We enjoyed his guiding, our discussions of Greek culture and way of life, and of course his food! The boat was clean and comfortable. A truly memorable experience. Thavmassia!!!!

Islands and water beckon you to experience Santorini by boat. A private tour with Panos is the way to go. Staying in Oia,the pickup and drop off was from Ammoudi Bay for our 3 hour excursion which covered all we wished to do as my wife can be prone to seasickness. It was not a problem on this trip,she was... More

My husband and I were not sure if we could afford this private tour for just the two of us but decided to splurge since it was our honeymoon and we were so glad we did and would do it again! It was our favorite part of the entire trip! Panos was so informative and his tour allowed us new... More

We booked a full day - nine hours - cruise and Panos, the captain of the boat, did not disappoint. It was well worth doing the whole day - from 12.00 noon to sunset around 8.30/9.00 in August. We were whisked off the dock as soon as we stepped out of the cable car and Panos had worked out a... More

Why does Panos get such good reviews? Because he is fantastic. We were 4 people and we booked a day rental while we stopped off on a cruise holiday. Having seen the huge queues for the cable car and the miserable looking donkeys I was so pleased that we had decided to treat ourselves. The people in the queues were... More

We booked a 5 hour private charter with Panos. While other folks from our cruise ship were waiting in long lines for the funicular or braving the crazy donkeys, we zipped off in our speedboat for a close view of the volcano and some fantastic swimming in the sulfur waters. It NOT the place where the tour boats go, but... More

6 of us booked a 5 hour private charter with Panos!! The port was sooo busy and everyone was waiting for the cable cars and looked miserable!! Not us!! Panos was there waiting for us and we quickly got on the boat and left. He gave us great information about the island while stopping at 3 places to swim. The... More

We booked for a five hour private cruise on July 9th. We were 4 people. We reserved this charter based on the excellent reviews and we were not disappointed. Panos, the skipper, picked us up on time. He shared his vast knowledge of Santorini with us. The only regret we have is not having booked a full day charter. He... More
