    This was a super fun day out. Our guide, Sakis, was so helpful, funny and all around a pleasure to have as a guide. The activities were well planned and everything went smoothly. The boat trip was incredible. So relaxing. The side activities did feel slightly rushed, I would have skipped the olive oil museum to have more time at one of the other stops, since it's a turtle tour.

We then proceeded to Laganas to get on the boat to turtle island and the caves. It was very chaotic with lots of people waiting for boats and we were left here by our guide to get on a boat with lots of others not from our tour.

Amazing day! We got picked up from the hotel and the trip is half on a minivan, half on the boat. We’ve done several stops in the minivan, including the viewpoint from above the shipwreck which was awesome. The boat trip has 2 main stops where you can get out of the boat, they take you to the shipwreck beach with no need to swim there and another one in the caves where you can dive and explore the caves , which for me was the best bit. After the boat trip, we stopped for lunch which is not included on the price but much needed. Our tour guide was Dionissios, and he was great! Throughly recommend this day trip, absolutely fantastic day. Boat fees are not included and cost 15 euros per person. Bring shoes, swimwear, towels, drinks and snacks, as it’s a long day.

We were picked up by the bus at the hotel at 7.45am and then stopped at several hotels to collect people. Buggies are not allowed on the ship, so I took my stretcher with me for our 1 year old daughter. On the way there and on the way back we made a stop where you could go into the water from the ship. You were allowed to stay for 1 hour at the shipwreck. There is also the opportunity to buy food and drink on board! The shipwreck in Navagio is laid out in such a way that you can get into the water over a bridge and thus it is also possible to get to the beach with a small child. We were back at the hotel around 4.45 p.m. The crew on board was very friendly and it was really beautiful! I would definitely recommend it!

Despite initial difficulties maximum recommended. Caution, the port consists of two parts, the gps takes you to the wrong place, and there is no passage. After a phone call handled correctly, they came for us.

Boat great - new - comfortable - good viewing and can be inside or out. friendly crew. The sites were amazing and the waters more than amazing. Enjoyed swimming - could be a little longer.

Great tour if you are on a short vacation and you want to try a bit of everything. Guides are very friendly and try to make everyone feel good and comfortable.
