What people are saying about Peloponnese

This was our FAVORITE day of our Honeymoon. This tour is a MUST if you're looking for a full day of action, adventure and beautiful sights. The Captain George was the highlight of the trip. He's the youngest boat captain in Milos, and is hilarious, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about the island and about boating. We had plenty of time to swim in the water, snorkle, cliff jump, explore caves via a tender boat and to relax on the boat in hammocks. They served breakfast, lunch and dessert which was all FANTASTIC and had unlimited wine, beer and ouzo. It was a wonderful experience all around and we wont soon forget it.

I wish I could give 10 stars. Nicholas is the guide and business owner. His van is pristine new and very comfortable. He has video screens and prepared videos for us about places we would visit in the van. He had water and drinks for all. He is really knowledgeable, friendly, and excellent English.
