What people are saying about Cyclades

Excellent trip. We were blessed with good weather and a nice mix of a total of 10 people. Everyone seem to thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The trips to the tiny caves and cove via small boats have been really amazing. Made 3 or may be 4 stops for swimming. The two guides have been excellent and do look after the group. One of the guide was on his last boat trip as he will be going back to get his master after this trip. Food and drinks were plentiful and all homemade good quality. If you want a lot of meat and carbohydrates then you will be disappointed though. Highly recommended.

Tour was great and organized, and extremely fair price for all that you get. There were a ton of people around to help, especially during the busy port area. The best part was the guide, Spiro. He is incredibly kind and funny, and was able to turn his guide commentary into storytelling.

10/10 would do the tour again! The food, music, and swimming were spot on. There were many different age groups, but the crew did an amazing job of bringing everyone together for a really fun experience :)

This was awesome! We started our Santorini trip with this cruise and we had a blast meeting new people, visiting the beaches, eating the greek food and all the wine!!

Great activity! Magnificent landscapes! A great welcome with the support staff just incredible!
