What people are saying about Navagio

This was a great day out with our guide Theodore who was friendly and helpful, giving us lots of information about the area and answering all our questions. He also volunteered to take family photos at all the scenic viewpoints. The minibus tour was great but the high light of the trip had to be the boat excursion to Navagio (shipwreck) beach where you get to spend an hour before being taken to the blue caves. I was amazed how far they took the boat in to the caves, we were lucky that at one of the caves the water was not too choppy and were able to take a quick swim here too. Theodore didn’t join us on the boat trip but his colleague Kostas was also very pleasant. After the boat trip there is a quick lunch stop at a local taverna which was okay - my wife says her prawns were amazing. A quick stop at the oldest olive tree on the island and then back to be dropped if at our accommodation. A thouroughly good day and I felt it was great value.

Great tour! Our guide picked us up from our hotel and gave us great information about the island and places to see! He came with us on the boat and was a fantastic photographer for us as we visited the blue caves and shipwreck beach. The boar captain was extremely skilled and flexible to what we wanted to see and how much time we wanted to spend on the beach. The organizer was extremely helpful and communicative, and was flexible on start time which was great for us as we flew to the island that morning and needed a later start!

We were picked up on time in a clean, well-air-conditioned bus. The tour was great. We stopped at many places but were told early on that we wouldn't be able to visit Shipwreck Beach due to high winds that day. Although we weren't able to visit the beach, we did get to visit one of the farms on the island and learned a lot about the history of the farm, met some animals and got to try some delicious wine! Dennis was a lovely tour guide and I'd happily book the tour again.

The private boat tour is a great mix of great spots. Our guide Stefano was an excellent motorboat driver, his calm demeanor was very relaxing. He knows every corner of the coast and skilfully steered us into even the smallest cave.

Little bit late to pick up, but experience with this price was excellent!
