Nicely organized trip! Saw both green and blue caves (our guide was organized and planned out the perfect time to get there with minimal line ups!) Got to swim in Stiniva Bay and another bay in Pakleni, cruise around the yachts in Palmiziana, stop in Koniza for lunch and browsing shops. They even had goggles on board which came in handy when wanting to see the beautiful fish while we swam.

Both the guide and the skipper were absolutely amazing! Really lively and great energy. Lovely experience, loads of swimming and learning. The blue cave was beautiful and so were all the other places we stopped at.

I went with a group of friends and would definitely recommend. You need cash for the boat to the blue cave and there isn't any an ATM on the island so be prepared for this.

Great tour. Claudia was an amazing guide. Just wished we had more time in Stinivia beach.

Our guide was very organised and brought us to some amazing locations.
