Just beautiful, relaxing and delicious. Only the stay on Samiopoula was a bit too short for us at 1 hour. But that's whining at a high level because the whole trip was very nice, and the stay on the private beach, which was much longer, was super nice! The food was simple, but that quickly puts the statement into perspective, as it was very, very tasty. We can unreservedly recommend the trip to every Samos vacationer! So you get nice pictures from the water on the beautiful island of Samos.

Very nice team, very good service, delicious food (grilled by the captain himself, who then calls you to eat with the conch shell) and beautiful beaches! To do this, make another stop at sea and hop off the boat into the sea. I highly recommend!

Well organized, nice people. Great food with a mega beach atmosphere. Swimming in 2 different bays and jumping into the sea was also great. We can only recommend!!!! Super easy booking.

Fantastic staff, along with the hostess and Captain George. Recommended tour for the whole day

Crew was super sweet and caring exceeded expectations
