Everything worked out perfectly. From the hotel transfer to the catamaran ride to Bodrum. We had a very nice tour guide who explained everything to us. You could have taken a tour of Bodrum Castle, but we didn't want that. I can only recommend it, Bodrum is very beautiful and if you want to go shopping, you are in good hands here and at a good price. Of course you have to act.

Very, very relaxed excursion with great stops. Great driver who was always concerned about our well-being and had many interesting things to tell. Very tasty food - a great selection. Time flew by!

it was wonderful right on time, very well organised and the crew of the boat were fantastic!! highly recommended

Best trip we have done on Rhodes! Just the right amount of time needed, beautiful stops and excellent service!
