Nothing to fault! Great experience. They catered a special itinerary for us as we booked two tours and with that we managed to see almost the entire island. They provided us with professional tour guides whom were great. The sites suggested were thoroughly enjoyable. We savored go very moment. The service provided to us from start to finish was exceptional with strong attention to detail and guest experience. Thank you for the amazing time and memories! They contacted early on, confirmed the itinerary, the day before confirmed pick up and set up us with great guides. There is not enough time in the world in order to enjoy, and take everything on. Would do it all over again. Highly recommend!

We had an amazing day out on this trip last week. The crew were both very friendly and we were lucky enough to have six other like minded guests who were very easy to get on with. We stopped four times throughout the day to visit beautiful beaches and snorkelling spots only accessible by boat. There were two paddle boards which were also fun to use and explore the various coves and beaches. The lunch was nice and there was plenty on offer to drink. If you are considering a day sailing from kefalonia, I would definitely recommend this trip!

This tour was amazing! Private and way better than going with my cruise line! They made sure we got back in time and went above and beyond for us! Elena and Devin were a great team and made us fall in love with the city.
