We were fortunate to find Alex and Pan Expeditions online while we were staying Nafplio for a few days and to be able to book a morning trip for the following day. We chose the Medieval Fortress trip, which allowed us to dock at the fort in the harbor for a brief explore and to learn some of the area's history and then to paddle on around the point to a secluded pebble beach. There we had a fruit and cake snack and had the opportunity to snorkel or swim, and to sample fresh sea urchin that Alex caught and opened for us.

Since we were the only people on the tour it was a leisurely pace, full of beauty. The kayaks (Perception) were top class and all the necessary equipment was in very good shape. Alex was helpful in his tips (always useful even for experienced kayakers), especially when the wind picked up in the afternoon on our paddle back to port.

We had the choice of returning to port by van or by boat and happily chose the latter. If we were in town longer we would definitely have booked another trip with Alex. A great experience, highly recommended.

Alex is a great guide; he knows the history of Nafplio and is a highly skilled kayaker. Without getting in our way, he was always monitoring our progress, making sure that we were handling our kayak comfortably and avoiding rocks where they might have presented a risk. He was prepared to tow us had we needed assistance. This was important because the wind kicked up mid-tour. He also took photos for us, which was an unexpected bonus. I really liked that he cared about the environment and picked up garbage that had washed ashore. In addition, he gave us an excellent suggestion about where to spend a couple days we had open. We told him what we wanted (off the beaten track), and he suggested Dimitsana, which was perfect for us.

We took part in the 'Medieval Castle Kayak Tour' in Nafplio on 10 September 2017. It was a great experience: the guides were very friendly, helpful and took care of us (inexperienced with kayaking) very well. The historical explanation at the Castle was interesting too, and we loved the snorkeling and the fruit snacks.

Thank you!

Sea Kayaking tour, snorkeled sunken city, hidden beaches, amazing local tasting and wonderful homemade local meal on secluded beach!

We had the most spectacular time with Alex, the tour itself was amazing, Alex made it perfection! Don't go with any other or you will be disappointed. The beaches and water are absolutely beautiful, conversation was lovely, food was unexpectedly delicious (a real meal!) this was the highlight of our trip to Greece! We will be back, thank you Alex!

Nafplio is a very beautiful place to visit both for Greeks and tourists. We started from Athens and it is very close by and we had booked the 2-day tour (1st day in Epidavros, 2nd day in Nafplio).

Alex and his team, are great professionals, having thought of every detail so as to make this experience as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. The equipment, the snacks and the foods were all great, above expectations for such an activity. There was never a moment that we felt bored or unattended because they have carefully structured the schedule so as to be full but not tiring.

We had an amazing time, we laughed a lot and we did learn things about the area that we didn't know about. Alex is very knowledgeable about the history of the area, which was a very pleasant addition to the experience.

I would definitely recommend it for a very refreshing weekend getaway from the city!

Tip: Bring your sea shoes and your sunscreen ;)
