Best day of our holiday by far! Felt like a celebrity for the day on our own private boat. Worth every penny! Panos was very informative but still allowed us time to ourselves so we could experience the views privately. Swimming in the hot springs was amazing and the lunch on board was divine.

Panos was there to meet us right on time and we had a lovely few hours spent with him and his assistant Dimitri. We had plenty of time swimming in the volcanic waters along with a fantastic time swimming and snorkelling afterwards whilst lunch was prepared for us. The local food and wine was lovely too. Four hours would have... More

The trip was booked over the internet well in advance. The communications were excellent and all details and arrangements made clear prior to our arrival. The boat itself is a clean, comfortable and functioning working boat. Panos (Skipper) and Dimitri (crew) are polite, friendly and professional. Panos speaks first class English and has impeccable manners. He imparts a great deal... More

I booked this trip while my wife and I were on Honeymoon, as it was her Birthday as well while we were in Santorini. I booked a morning / afternoon half day trip, which was 5 hours and it was by far the highlight of our trip. It was very easy to arrange, Panos let us know all the details... More

It was an incredible day in Santorini. Panos and Dimitri are very polite and the service is amazing. Our half day charter was perfect, the real hot springs, the diving at White Island, all the geography and historical information provided, the food and the most beautiful sunset of our lives. We really recommend this charter. Try it and you certainly... More

What an amazing way to spend a day. My wife and I booked the Alex for a half-day sunset cruise. I made all the arrangements with Panos by email--it was easy and efficient. Panos and his first mate Dmitrius were right on time, and we had an amazing day. His knowledge of the archaeological history of Santorini is extensive, and... More

I booked this boat trip 3-4 weeks in advance of our trip. We took the half day in the morning with just my new husband and me. This was the least expensive private excursion I found, and the experience was excellent. Panos' agenda is perfect--beautiful, informative, once-in-a-lifetime experiences--but he'll go anywhere else you suggest. The food is delicious-- mezedes or... More

Our half day charter was terrific As a family of 5 it worked out to be good value for money to have a comfortable private boat with an captain as knowledgeable as Panos show us around the caldera and tell us lots of interesting information about Santorini. We enjoyed the swimming stops and had a laugh at the hot springs.... More

I done a lot of research as Santorini offers a number of boat and sunset cruises but after speaking with and researching we decided to go with Alex's boat rental, we were not disappointed in the slightest. Panos and Dimitri were first class gentleman. Knowledgeable, approachable, at ease and non intrusive. We booked a private half day charter and let... More
