What people are saying about Laganas

This trip was fantastic. Our guide (unfortunately didn’t catch her is name) was so helpful and friendly. My dad was on crutches and I had previously emailed the tour company to ensure the boat was accessible. Our guide was absolutely amazing, helped my dad on and off the boat at all times, I can’t thank him enough. Although there’s no guarantee you’ll see turtles, we saw 2 massive Loggerhead turtles. These amazing creatures were just swimming around underneath the boats and popped up for a breather - it was such a great sight to witness these magnificence creatures in their natural habitat. There were plenty of swim stops near the caves as well as an hour to roam on Turtle Island and also grab a snack from the floating Tuck Shop. Thanks again to the guide, he made it so enjoyable and really helped my dad enjoy the trip too!

HIGHLY recommend this tour! Khalifa was an awesome guide kind, informative & passionate about the topics. We saw a sea turtle on the boat tour thanks to our amazing captain, the water & landscapes were breathtaking. Olive press museum was more enjoyable than I had expected, don't forget to try some of the cosmetic products. Don't pay 5EUR to enter the island across the bridge, theres nothing to see that the tour hasn't already shown you except for a keyring with your photo on it.

It was lovely, we managed to see a turtle while the captain wasn’t chasing or in any way disturbing the lovely sea animal! Great day!

Great tour, great guide, great captain! Beautiful places! Always a pleasure!

Beautiful experience. Friendly and exclusive guide
