A tour that outdoes the reviews and a sunset that outdoes any others. The cruise was so professional from start to finish and some of the best service we had in Santorini. The sunset cruise followed an amazing route - red beach, white beach, hot springs, thira and oia. You don’t feel rushed at each point. The food is pretty basic but good home cooking and delicious bbq, and your drinks are always filled. The catamaran is spacious so you can sit with your group without being on top of the other people on the tour. The music - which is key! (as you’re on there for 5 hours) really was the perfect vibe! And the staff super friendly and knowledgeable. Really so so worth the money! Enjoy!

This tour was incredible! The crew was super friendly, and the boat was lovely. We really enjoyed the freedom of being able to stop wherever we wanted for as long as we wanted. And the food was amazing! I highly recommend this activity.

Great experience. The guide was perfect, had a perfect command of French and had enriching explanations. The boat was not too full, we were a small group. The shuttle system was great too. Everything was great.

Very relaxing day out on a super catamaran, felt comfortable and crew very friendly. The food and drink was great would definitely recommend.

Awesome boat for a very fair price with good food and enough wine! Great for couples and young people!
