Had a great kayak trip with Alex and his assistant, Pan. They were very co-operative in meeting everyone's needs. We got a late start because the others on the tour were late. I had a time constraint and they dropped me off at a point closer to my hotel instead of going back to the drop off point. I am sorry that Pan had to paddle the double kayak the rest of the way on his own but he assured me that didn't mind.
Their primary concern was that I enjoyed my trip.
The tour was wonderful. The kayaking was not difficult. We saw things from a different perspective that you don't normally see.
Alex and Pan were very enthusiastic and informative as we stopped at one castle and kayaked around the others. I learned a lot about the history of Greece and Nafplio.
We stopped at a secluded area for snorkeling, swimming and snacks. They have fresh, cold watermelon, cantaloupe, figs, cherries and cake. Very refreshing. They pointed out caper plants growing on the side of the cliffs. Alex even found some sea urchins which he cut open for us to taste the eggs. Something I had never done before.
I would highly recommend taking a tour with Alex and his people. I know I will take another tour with them if I come back to Nafplio.
Thank you both for a wonderful morning.

We took part in a 7 day sea kayaking expedition between Nafplio and Porto Heli with Alex and the Wild Human Team. It was absolutely amazing. One of the best experiences of my life.

Alex was an excellent teacher and whipped our group into a kayaking machine, covering the miles with ease within a few days considering several of us were kayaking novices.

We saw the amazing coastline and Alex was a fountain of knowledge about Nafplio and the surrounding area. His enthusiasm was infectious and made for a truly enjoyable trip.

Also, a special shootout to Ben and Debs from Wild Human for helping to organise the expedition and introducing us poor Brits to this beautiful part of the world.

My friends and I kayaked with Alex and Pan last week while staying near Nafplio and had a great day on the water. We kayaked to 3 islands off of Tolo Beach and enjoyed listening to the local history, seeing sea caves, swimming in a secluded cove, hiking to a small church with amazing views and snorkeling in the clear waters. We also stopped at a beach for fresh fruit and snacks. What made this trip wonderful was the enthusiasm and engagement of Alex and Pan. They were so much fun to spend time with and you can tell they love doing the tours. They also took amazing pictures of us the whole time so that we didn't have to worry about getting the perfect shot. They shared the pictures with us later that day on Google drive so that we could save an access all that we wanted to. What a nice touch. Even if you are a beginner kayaker, they make you feel safe and the paddle is totally do-able. Thanks Pan and Alex for a great day!

Absolutely fantastic, i booked this tour as a surprise for my husband on our last days in Greece, and we both got a surprise. Ancient archaeology in the raw. Private beach with amazing home made lunch, time to spend swimming in a couple of places, a little area with loads of tiny little gems of history. loved loved loved!

We signed up for a kayak tour of the sunken city near Epidavros during our recent trip to Greece. We were staying in Nafplion for a few days, and it sounded interesting. But to be honest...I had my doubts. Our “Greece trip” was heavily loaded with serious history sites…off the beaten path places where we are generally the only ones there. Think Mystras, Monemvasia, Hosios Loukas.

On the surface, this didn’t fit the bill.

We’re experienced kayakers, but even so, Alex’s introductory explanation taught me things I’d never known…how to properly hold the paddles, stroking techniques, the importance of holding your frame. All very helpful things that I will use in the future. Later that evening I noticed that I had NONE of the normal aches and pains following a day’s kayaking. Thanks to Alex!

The site itself was pretty amazing. The small theatre in Epidavros is interesting…but I could have spent the entire day poring over the sunken city remains. It was just spectacular! You are basically viewing a port city from the Classical Age (maybe earlier) complete with loading docks, walls, large storage amphorae, etc. It’s all about 8 feet below the surface, and easily visible.

It turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip! We’ll definitely be back next year for one of the others.

Bottom line: We had an absolute BLAST. I’d do this again in a heartbeat.

Very nicely done Alex!

Thank you!

PS For those of you apprehensive about the level of physical exertion: I’m 62 years old and in reasonable, but not in spectacular shape. Had absolutely no problem! On the other hand I’m a good swimmer. If you can’t swim, you may want to rethink this trip – only because you won’t appreciate the sunken city – which is really a jewel!

Our family of four had a fantastic day out on the water with Alex, Pan, and Pan. We enjoyed the small theater, snorkeling sunken city, and the hidden beaches -- none of which we would've found on our own and appreciated hearing about them from the local perspective. Alex has deep knowledge and was eager to share it. He was very helpful and responsive leading up to the trip as well. All three guides were incredibly warm, seemed to genuinely enjoy being with us, and were enthusiastic in talking with us about life in Greece. They were great with our kids (ages 12 and 14) and struck a wonderful balance of being sure everyone was safe (we had a guide with each kayak!) and also making it fun, loose, and light. We had a delicious lunch and learned about local cuisine (including sampling freshly caught sea urchin right on the beach!) and culture. The scenery is hard to beat. It was one of the most memorable days of our three-week trip to Europe. We'd highly recommend any trip with PanExpeditions and will look forward to seeing Alex, Pan, and Pan again next time we're in Greece!

Alex, Pan and Pan (2 guides had the same name 😊) did an OUTSTANDING job taking us by sea kayaks so see the castles and coastline of Nafplio, Greece. They explained the history of the island and were well prepared for the day. We also got to snorkel on a quiet beach and they provided some delicious fruit and snacks. They took and shared pictures of the day. It was a great day! At the end of the excursion he made a recommendation for lunch that turned out to be the best meal we’ve had yet! Thank you panexpeditions for a wonderful day!!

This was a highlight of my trip to Greece. It is an all day tour. After kayaking a distance you get out at several locations. One, you hike to an ancient amphitheater, then you get put to snorkel tour an ancient sunken city, then you stop at a private white sand beach and snorkel again then eat lunch on the beach. We saw octopus, sea turtles and many gorgeous vistas. Highly recommended.

This was an amazing tour! The tour guides were so personable, knowledgeable, and fun! They let us take our time, didn't keep to a strict time frame, just leisure, and laid back! It was beautiful, relaxing, and the lunch was delicious! Make time for this tour, it's totally worth it! Love loved it!
