“What a fantasic experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

My friends and I we took exclusively last July, the traditional sailing boat PEGASUS for a day cruise around the caldera of Santorini.

First stop the volcano of Nea Kameni. An elementary experience, walking as fas as possible from the masses and main paths across a luna-like landscape, guided by Elfi.

Next stop the island Palaia Kameni offered both Fun and therapy! We were allowed to dive into the refreshing floods of the hot springs, splashing about in the warm fumeroles and digging in the sulphurous mud. After the swim, a local ouzo and Greek snacks were offered by the captain.

After having passed the southern shores of the caldera and Aspronisi, the next stop on our cruise is the island of Thirassia for lunch and swimming. We were touched by the simplicity of archaic life this remote island embodies - the "Old Greece", or what Santorini may have been like fifty or a hundred years ago.

The way back to the Port was like a continuous Highlight - extensive views of the most beautiful and highest caldera cliffs, an impressive finale accompanied by the sounds of the sea and of Greek music. What a fantastic experience!

EVCHARISTO - As Elfi told us in Greek means "Thanks a lot".

“FANTASTIC!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2011

Santorini! I believe that it's the most amaging island of the world! We visit it every year,but...this time,we took a 4 hours private cruise around Santorini with "PEGASUS"a fantastic wooden schooner! Everything was grate that day: the weather,the trip and the famous Caldera view! Captain Dimitris and our guide Elsi tried the best for us to have an unforgetable!!! timeon Pegasus.The greek "mezedes" were very very tasty and Santorini's wine the best as always! Thank you so much! We can't wait to see you again!

“MAGICAL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2011

I have just come back from a wonderful trip to Santorini and the highlight of my trip was an mini cruise on the Pegasus. I have been to Santorini before and had seen the Pegasus sailing by but never in my wildest dreams did I imagine what an amazing experience it would be. From the minute you step on board you are treated as royalty and it is something that you have to experience if you go to the magical island of Santorini. Pegasus is Santorini at its best - beautiful and magical.

“Pegasus... simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2011

A beautiful wooden boat that made our trip to Santorini unforgetable for the whole family. Our parents, my husbant and i marnelled the incredible view of the cliffs and the volcano, while our kids pretended that they were pirates!
I wasn't a "boat person" before, but this private sailing trip with Pegasus, Captain Dimitris and his crew, made me change my mind. We can't wait to come back and try the sunset cruise, with Pegasus of course!
Captain Dimitris THANK YOU so much for your last year's hospitality and prepare Pegasus for "our pirates" this summer....!
