Our guide George was a very entertaining guy. He told us many stories while exploring the little caves around Kleftiko in a dinghy which was a great experience. The food was super tasty and homemade - not your usual tourist menu stuff. We were only 12 people on the boat, and they required everyone to submit Covid certificates before the trip so it felt quite safe. A tiny negative is that we did not follow the original itinerary. This is 100% understandable and fine (depending on winds that day etc) but it should have been communicated better. When we went directly to Kleftiko, I was afraid that we would have to skip the visit to Sykia cave altogether. We did go back there later on which was great because it was less crowded. Be aware that we spent very little time around Milos rock, *the* picture spot of Kleftiko. If you are looking for the super instagramable photo of floating in the sea in front of that landscape, you may not get it on this trip. I still loved the experience overall!

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.

Such an incredible tour. Stavros and Daniel were incredible friendly, fun, and informative. I am traveling solo and felt very welcome and comfortable with the crew and other guests. We hit all the must-see places along the coast, got close up with the caves, and had a perfect amount of time for snorkeling/swimming/tanning at multiple locations. Would definitely recommend!

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.

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!
