Pick up ist früher gekommen als in Email gestanden ist,das war bisschen stressig aber nicht so schlimm. Zum Hafen sind wir fast 3 Stunden mit dem Bus gefahren,dass war viel.Aber alles was wir gesehen haben war wunderschön. Kristallklares Wasser,unberührte Insel Koufonissi. Einzige was uns negativ war,von uns zwei eine kann nicht schwimmen deswegen konnte nicht baden,obwohl ich hier unter Bewertungen gelesen habe,dass es ein kleines Shuttle Boat gibt’s mit dem man vom Schiff zum Ufer geht. Das gab’s leider nicht. Sonst war superschön!

Beautiful scenery. Very nice boat. We stopped to swim and have fun 3 times and they provided snorkeling gear and noodles. Drinks were included and the people on our tour were very relaxed and fun.

The whole experience was 5-star. The catamaran was comfortable. The tour was not crowded. The staff was helpful and friendly. And the food was superb.

Beautiful lazy day on the catamaran, stops at various places to do a little snorkeling, unlimited cold drinks. Very nice crew.

Great day out, took us to some nice spots. The day disappeared very quickly
