All very well organized. All stops were made with enough time each. The incredible thing is that they lend you water toys to float or paddle. Enjoyable music for all tastes. The very enthusiastic guide during the tour. The stops at the beaches were very worthwhile, you reach hidden corners within the island, thus disconnecting from everything else. On Xi beach, with the experience of the natural Spa it was unique. The guide took the time to take photos of everyone who wanted!!! A super plus, why can't you swim down with your cell phone, right? Water and young white wine included (obviously don't expect the finest wine). Do not drink too much on board, the tide can give you a hard time as well as other passengers. The food, besides being traditional, was delicious, for dessert they even distributed fresh watermelon, very traditional. Hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are vital. Highly recommended tour for your vacation in Kefalonia. 10000%.

This must be the best tour I have ever done. You get to see all the main attractions of the island and explore the caves and beaches around Kefalonia with a great guide. The visit to the vineyard is amazing as you’re surrounded by an incredible landscape while tasting some of the best wine I have ever had. The organization of the tour is impeccable!

Really good experience, the description met expectations. Had unlimited wine which was a nice touch and the different stop off points all had something different about them. Finished at 5 which was a perfect time go off and enjoy the evening. The lunch was a reasonable size and was of good quality.

This is a nice experience to have at the beginning of your stay in Kefalonia. The hosts were really nice and funny, the food was good and we got to enjoy every beach we visited. I would definitively recommend this experience.

Great staff, food was yum. Kids loved jumping off the boats and exploring the different beaches.
