Nice boat trip to Ithaca which has beautiful coves. In a pandemic period I would have expected more attention to social distancing and masks, instead they embarked more people than they should, so much so that we were massed and masks were optional. Such a pity! It would have been more correct to warn and not to deceive people by stating on the site that everything would be done safely. It was not so.

Lovely boat, very informative, didn’t rate the village stops we made. The capital was bland and characterless. Swim stops very brief. A lot of time spent on the boat for not a great deal. I usually love these types of trip but the atmosphere was lacking somehow!
