What people are saying about Kleftiko

This was truly such a highlight of our trip to Milos. 10/10 - recommend immensely. Each of the 10 passengers were asked to do a self-test for covid the day before and go in-person to attest to a negative result. It was clear that they took everyone’s safety very seriously. The actual trip was amazing too. We went to a bunch of beautiful spots, and had access to goggles, snorkels, and paddle boards. We were served a truly delicious home-cooked lunch with a variety of options (octopus pasta, fresh cheese, fresh fish, chicken salad, Greek salad, potato salad, tzatziki, etc — all restaurant quality, one of the best meals we have had on this trip!), snacks, a Greek yogurt parfait, Greek beer and other specialty drinks, and fresh fruit. The captain and the first mate/chef were both so kind and friendly. I couldn’t recommend this high enough. A fellow passenger shared that he had done a number of catamarans over his trips and this was certainly the best.

What an amazing experience! The sailing trip was definitely a highlight of our trip to Milos. The guide Yiannis was so fun, funny and informative. Our captain was great - even though it was windy we didn't even notice as he expertly guided our boat to all the tops spots. The food was excellent and the drinks aplenty. Highly highly recommend.

We had a great time on this trip. It was my girlfriend's birthday and when the captain heard about this he even organized a birthday cake upon arrival in the port. This describes the general friendliness, service & warm experience we had with Excellent Yachting. We can completely recommend, 10/10!

This was a completely excellent trip—beautiful sights, amazing food, and fantastic guides. We absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it as one of the best experiences of our trip to Greece!

We had such a good day! The sea was amazing, and the team very nice and fun to be around! I recommend this trip.
