A great day at sea to circumnavigate Milos on a sailboat. However, the wind conditions did not allow any canvassing. Dora, our host has a perfect knowledge of the island and its history. Sailing, listening, diving, swimming, eating and finally discovering places inaccessible from the island, this is the program from 9 a.m. to over 7 p.m. I recommend JP

Excellent !!! all amazing! the place, the boat, the captain, and our guide dora, excellent, good vibes, energy and we learned a lot from her too... Lots of food, and very very tasty! They treated us very well, and taking into account the needs of the passengers. super recommended !!!

had a super day! Dora is a great guide who takes care of her guests and wants to give them a great time. The food was delicious (and lots of it!), goggles and flippers are offered at the swim stops. Only we couldn't take underwater pictures, but that was the only downside

Dora and the captain were amazing. Great locations, and we were very well cared for!

We loved our tour with guide Dora! Very nice day, super friendly.
