What people are saying about Central Macedonia

GREAT EXCURSION!!! Me and partner joined from Psakoudia, only a short drive and we both really loved it. The boat was great. All the stops we made were really nice, picturesque and we had enough time to do what we wanted while we were at each one. Food was really nice and enough for the average person. Really reasonably priced snacks and drinks on board if you need. Staff were all welcoming and lovely. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting Halkidiki.

We really enjoyed our trip, seeing different monasteries and spending some time on Ammouliani island (you get about 1,5h to spend here. There is a snackbar on the beach or you can bring some food if your own). Make sure to be on time in the morning so you get a good spot in the boat. Staf is very friendly!

This was an amazing experience, Sven was really great and friendly. We got to swim which was super fun and the sunset was beautiful! We also got to see the moon and the boat ride was lovely ! I would definitely go again !

The pictures do not do the activity justice!! It was absolutely wonderful. Friendly staff all around and the lunch was also good.

The instructors who conducted the activity were super helpful and pros.. Will recommend this activity to everyone ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
