I have another review under "Extreme Divers". George, Evan and Amelia were *terrific*. Easy to work with, fast replies to emails, details of the trip are worked out in advance (with great clarity) and fun. George is a terrific guide - full of information and patience. You'll find the organization is honest, reasonably priced and worth your time and money. Please give this event serious consideration - you can't go wrong. NOTE: They adhere to strict COVID safety guidelines. We even got a Rapid Test the morning of the event in accordance with local / state guidelines.

We’re a family of 5 kids aged 15, 13 and 10. We had a great day. Pick up from hotel, 40 minute in air conditioned van, George told us a lot about the area. Then on to the boat and 25 minute trip to temple. Great fun in the rib across the bay. 15 minute walk to temple. Great views. Back on boat across bay. Snorkelling in cave, then on to a remote beach for more snorkelling. Savoury and sweet pastries and lots of fruit and water on the boat. We had a really great time. Thanks George. You were a great host.

We booked this tour on our first full day in Greece, and it was the perfect way to settle into our vacation! George met our group, which included five children ages 4-15, at the hotel. He made it very clear from the start that it was our day, and activities could be tailored to our preferences. The group opted for more swimming and snorkeling time, so we spent the day anchored at various locations doing just that. George was the perfect guide. He was warm and informative, and open to answering questions about our surroundings and about his country. He even got in the water with an underwater camera to shoot pictures and video of the kids, which he emailed to us later. It was easy to see that he loves spending his days on the water! It was also obvious during our time together that safety was George's primary concern, and both he and the skipper were always aware of the wind and (on a few occasions) the distant sound of thunder. After a delicious late afternoon snack of fruit and pastries, we docked the boat and took a scenic drive down the coast to the cape, to visit the temple at sunset. The kids really enjoyed this part of the trip as well. The day was definitely one of our most memorable of the entire trip. It was fun and informative and relaxing, but above all, we really felt that we lived and experienced the best of what Greece has to offer. Would highly recommend!

My 2 young adult children and I had an amazing day at sea. We had a windy day and I was a little worried if that would interfere with our day, but George took excellent care of us. He knew all the places to visit on a windy day to ensure our safety and comfort. He picked us up at our hotel, had plenty of water and yummy pastries and fruit for us. We ended up driving to Poseidon’s Temple to explore the ruins due to the wind, so we could maximize our snorkeling time. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Greece. He speaks excellent English. George recommended a great local restaurant basically unknown to tourists, and due to them not offering an English menu he came up with us, made recommendations, showed us the freshest best fish to order and helped us order. We had an amazing meal looking over the city of Athens. We would highly recommend this tour.

We were a group of 8, our first trip to Greece with our adult children. You couldn't have asked for a better tour or guides, Evan and George were wonderful!!! Evan picked us up on time in an air condition van, spoke excellent English, he had everything well planned. It was the first time snorkeling for some of us and they made it effortless, so
glad we tried. The water was amazing..We ended the day at the Poseidon Temple which was also a don't miss. Evan's and George's personality made this trip. Gave us so much insight of their country and way of life, treated us like family. Wanted to take a countryside tour with them but ran out of time. I know this, if we ever get the opportunity to visit Greece again, I know who we will tour with. Thank you for a lifetime memory.

My family of 4 (two teenagers) spent the day snorkeling with George and his crew on our way to the Sounio Cape. George was AMAZING and very knowledgeable. He and his crew are completely trustworthy. We were able to tailor our trip to meet our needs and requests. At the end of the day, George dropped us off at a recommended restaurant with the best views of Athens, and the food did not disappoint. By the end of the day, we had made a new friend, and we will definitely book this trip again with George and his family run business when we return to Athens. I highly recommend this tour! Thank you George for showing us an amazing time!!

This experience was so worth it. We were a group of 7 and had a great time. George was so friendly and knowledgeable. They truly make the day about what you want. We felt safe the whole time and had a blast. Definitely recommend for people that want a private day on the ocean away from the crowds.

We were two families with kids 10-13 yo. We had an amazing day with these guys! George is a wonderful host. We got picked up at our Airbnb and taken to the boat (an hour drive) during which George was super chatty and interesting. Then we were given two options: go snorkeling, come back, drive to Poseidon temple and see the sunset there OR go to Poseidon temple first with the boat, climb the mountain by foot, then go snorkeling and see the sunset from the boat. We chose the first because it was better for the kids. It was amazing to snorkel and see fish and sea animals. George had pastries, fruits, and water on the ship (though I think he underestimated the appetite our growing boys have!). After our visit to Poseidon temple George recommended a local seafood restaurant with an amazing view of Athens. We needed dinner and that seemed like a great option. We arrived there at 10pm and even tho the kids were exhausted we had a wonderful meal. George took us back to the Airbnb after dinner. We arrived at 1am. It was an unforgettable day. Highly recommended!

We were four friends traveling to Athens and to Paros this month and we contacted George several months in advance because of his fantastic reviews on TripAdvisor. He was So helpful in making sure we stayed in a quiet area of Athens to relax after our time in the city,helped to choose the island we traveled to, (Paros) made sure we stayed on the ideal part of the island, and he arranged our ferry! That was before we even arrived! When we did arrive we were met by George and his son who presented us each with a rose. We had our first Greek culinary experience at a restaurant he chose for its local appeal, and started a trip-long love affair with Greek food. What I know is this, thanks to my experience with George, Athens is a real, living place for me. The fresh air out of the mountains. The Aegean with schools of fish falling like leaves through impossibly clear water and Poseidon sea grass waving, it lives inside me now. The sun setting at the Temple of Poseidon after a day in the sea will remain one of my best experiences, but it’s hard to choose just one day as every day he arranged was perfect, we trusted him to guide us and reaped the benefits!

Are you reading this because you want to Experience Greece? If you are, like I was, see Greece with George, see the Aegean with Nikos as your skipper. You will remember the experience long after the souvenirs have faded. As an American from a young country, seeing Athens, the birthplace of civilization as we know it was incredible. Seeing it (and Nafplio, the Corinth Canal and Mycenae!) while just talking to George about it, not reeling facts like a tour guide but conversation with an interesting friend with a joy for life and a wicked guitar. On the water or on land there is no way to experience a city like you can here with them. Our dinner overlooking Athens with fish and shrimp speared that morning, our walking tour of Athens that gave me a feel for the city I know I could have gotten nowhere else, the taste of fresh picked apricots, the neighborhood farmers market. None of that would have been possible without a passionate interested guide who can show you the Greece of the Greeks, not the guidebook. I can tell you everything we did, but that isn’t the point. The conversation, the Overall experience, being with a local and having the local experience, That is the point, and if that is how you wish to see the places you visit, this is the place for you. Don’t pass up this opportunity!! I’m still thinking about many of the things we talked about as we traveled and I’m sure I will for years to come. Thank you George, Nikos, Evan and of Course Panayotis for an unforgettable first experience of Greece, it will certainly not be the last.
