    100% recommend this trip. We went on it during our honeymoon in Santorini and had one of the best days! The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more attentive. The food was really good and there was plenty to eat. There was a great selection including fresh seafood.
    The stops were well planned and there were several opportunities to swim and snorkel. There isn't too many others on the boat so there are spaces to relax. We met lovely people on the cruise too. Beautiful boat, really up together and a smooth trip.
    Amazing way to view Santorini and find out more about it - would definitely do this again if we were to return to Santorini!

    We really enjoyed our trip to Santorini and appreciated the bus pick up from the hotel, ferry ride, and bus transportation on the island. We booked online, so the explanation of how to get our ferry tickets and how we determined which bus to ride was a little confusing. But once we figured it out we had a great experience!

    Really great experience with a friendly crew. My wife is gluten free, and we let them know this before the trip and they accommodated her needs with the lunch meal they make. I would recommend this to anyone!

    Booked this via a travel agent as wanted a boat trip that did not last all day. Was told to on board at 11:30 but didn’t set off til 12:15 so not sure why that was.
    Boat itself doesn’t go very far only into the next bay which Is Malia Bay for a short stop for people to swim then back round the other side of Hersonnisos to St George’s bay for a longer stay where snorkelling is better and lunch is served in this time. Food was ok basic. No drinks provided so take your own or get charged 2.50 for a warm can of pop.
    Boat wasn’t overcrowded when we travelled but can imagine it would unbearable if it was full as not much shade if you don’t like the sun.

    We booked a 6-hour boat trip. We are a family of five and had an absolutely fantastic day. The trip took in private beaches and beautiful swimming/snorkelling in rocky coves that we had all to ourselves, even swimming (guided!) into a sea cave. The skipper was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the wildlife, helpful and friendly. Drinks (water, soft drinks, beer) were provided, as were delicious local sandwiches.

    The weather was bad on our chosen day - Seaze the Day were really helpful in rebooking, great communication, gave us a choice of times and different boat options.

    All in all, a fantastic experience.

    It was a really nice day. The crew was super nice with our kids and the food was really good.
    We had big waves that day. Which meant that the second stop was canceled and the tour was only 3 hours. They didn’t really tell everyone about that which was not so good.

    Very good experience. Was able to get picked up from out hotel (for a price since we were outside the 10km free range). very nice skippers and nice views. just wish we stayed at the island we visited for longer than we did. An hour and a half would be nice.

    Thank you so much Yanni & George for a fantastic day trip, small group of of people were catered for so well, fresh fish and salad beautifully cooked. We also had a history lesson of the island of Dia, snorkeling & sup included. Also the pink flamingo added for wanted a swim aid! We had fun, totally recommend.

    We had an amazing time with Panos and his team! We booked this tour spontaneously the afternoon prior and we couldn’t be more pleased that we did. We were a bit hesitant to go snorkeling considering it’s November and the mornings have been pretty chilly this time of the year (it’s the first week of November). By the time we arrived to the drop off location with Panos and we were given wet suits, the sun was shining and we were pumped for swimming. The ride out to the spots was pleasant and we spent a ton of time in the water. I would definitely recommend bringing a GoPro to take some pics in the water (we did). Wetsuits are provided, towels aren’t. They even provided a banana and water bottle as a snack, which we didn’t expect at all. Overall amazing experience, would book through them again if we come back to Crete.

    During our stay in Crete we decided to visit Santorini. Everything was so smooth and well organized! A plus is the pick up from our hotel that made our day a pleasant experience. The staff and guides are very friendly and really helpful. We had the opportunity to explore Fira and Oia and stroll in its alleys. The guides were really helpful and with good recommendations! We really enjoyed this day trip and it's highly recommended.

    Should be 5 star but as so many people visiting in one go, it does spoil the experience somewhat. However the ferry ride was pleasant, clean boat and the food was adequate. When on Gramvousa, it is definitely worth the walk to see the fort at the top. The structure is remarkable and the views stunning. Good walking shoes recommended as the path is steep and uneven in places. The only downside was the long wait at the port before the ferry left which made for a longer day than is necessary, however this seemed normal for anyone on an organised trip.

    Had a lovely day & felt it was good value for money. I did however feel that the boat was a bit overcrowded & the beach we stopped at for a swim was amazing but very tiny and far too many people to enjoy it properly. It was literally standing room only.
    The bbq was quite nice but finding a space on the boat to eat it was impossible. People were standing at the bar trying to eat as there weren’t enough seats.
    Spinalonga was very interesting and glad we went. There’s a lot of uphill walking and clambering over rocks so wouldn’t recommend if you have trouble with walking.
    You can swim off the back of the boat which was lovely and the water is warm and crystal clear.

    We arrived at the island and were told we had 1hr 40 mins before we left. However by the time we had all disembarked and queued for tickets, we had lost half an hour. Our guide , Gloria, was very passionate about the island and gave a very informative talk in 30 mins about the leper history, which we would not have known about if you had decided to just walk around on your own. However, this left you just over 30 mins to walk around the rest of the island which was simply not possible, and I'm fit. It is a lovely setting and I feel you should have more time here. So buying tickets in advance or included in the price is an obvious solution to avoid queuing. The other issue is the 30 min stop for swimming. There were easily 200 on our trip that day and about 10 went for a swim. It was a windy day and you could see they were a bit cold on getting out. We can all swim in the sea on holiday at our own time if we choose. As many others have pointed out in previous reviews, I'd rather have more time on the island as that is the whole point of the trip and how it's advertised. So overall, we all enjoyed the trip but there can be big improvements for the majority who don't swim and want to enjoy a special piece of history.
