We had an amazing day kayaking with Kalliopi and Niko, who were so lovely, welcoming and friendly. Our transport collected us from our accommodation and Niko (and one of the dogs!) met us at the top of the track in the 4WD. All the equipment we needed was provided, including water and sun hats which we most appreciated. We had a coffee and were introduced to the rest of the group who would be kayaking with us. The weather was perfect! We paddled out along the coastline with Kalliopi describing the geology and folklore of the scenery around us. At lunch we stopped for a swim and snorkel in the beautiful clear waters – so many fish! Lunch was delicious (especially the spinach pie!) and Kalliopi had very kindly taken into consideration all of our family's dietary requirements. After lunch we kayaked some more, through a cave, and back to base. Finally before our transport collected us Kalliopi sent us the photos she and Niko had taken during the trip. An amazing day – thank you so much!

This has been the best kayaking experience ever. If I ever go back to Greece, I would like to visit the instructors because they make you feel the warmth.
