Had a great day! Picked up near our B&B. Beautiful authentic boat. Delicious lunch, freshly prepared, on board and something for everyone on the different islands. Cycling, swimming, site seeing, history... We were served at our beck and call by Sam and associates! During lunch the tzatziki was gone, but Sam made sure I got a whole portion to take home when I said goodbye. Really great and definitely recommended!

Kostas our guide was superb, his knowledge as a qualified archeologist meant he could tell us so much more about all the historic sights we were looking at. The history, the stories and him sharing his knowledge and passion for his Athens was unforgettable
