The day itself was overall really good and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The facilities were useful, the bar/shop was well stocked. However, the ‘80% occupancy’ due to Covid felt non-existent. There was allocated seating but many groups had no allocated seats and there was no opportunity for social-distancing when seated. Very enjoyable day however, and highly recommended, but would have been more relaxed/enjoyed had there been less people on board due to current COVID pandemic.

It was excellent! Great experience, very organized tour, happy and helpfull staff. Paxos and Antipaxos are extremely beautiful. You shoul choose Ionian Cruise for this trip. It was an incredible atmosphere! Maria(the guide) explained us a lot of history along this trip and was super kind. We first stopped to Paxos to visit it and than We stopped to a beautiful (almost unreal) wild beach in Antipaxos while other companies do the opposite so it wasn’t crowded. You Could easily think that you were in the Carraibean (at Antipaxos beach). Also the staff had a nice surprise for us, a young greek couple who danced traditional greek dances.

It was a well organized trip. We enjoyed every minute. Although it took 10hours, it was not boring at all. We loved swimmimg in the stunning blue water at Antipaxos, visiting Paxos and entering the Caves. What could be improved: the staff in the bar seemed bored of tourists and showed no hospitality or minimum level of politeness. The guide’s English could be improved, the information shared was confusing at times.
