Such a great experience. We had so much fun exploring the bays and the host had facts about the different spots we stopped at which was good! Mike (Host) was very helpful, made us feel comfortable and a good camera man, haha. the other staff were friendly too. The snacks provided were gorgeous and very fresh. We also used the transfer which was very helpful as we didn’t have to worry about getting taxis there and back. We did have to wait for transfer on the way back tho as too many people were booked on and only a small minivan. Overall an amazing experience and would highly recommend to anyone!

Was brilliant from start to finish , we paid an extra €10 for transfer from our hotel and back. While in the trip Mike (who was so helpful) explained every place. The sites were so beautiful and the snacks on the trip even better with a taste of Greek food. Would highly recommend! Definitely worth the money!

Had the best time on the Sofía Sea Cruise! Well worth the money. Hosts are so lovely and make the whole trip comfortable and fun! The beaches and coves we visited are beautiful. Will definitely use the Sofía Sea Cruise if ever back in Rhodes. Jessica and Molly Schofield :)

Very nice trip. The guide provided entertainment and gave brief information at each stop. Unfortunately, you don't really see many fish when snorkeling. Nevertheless, I definitely recommend it as a half-day excursion!

Absolutely brilliant tour, Maria and Yanis were amazing, the ancient city of Kamiros is a must see, incredible! And the local wines, honeys, and olive oils are incredible and you get to sample them all on this trip!
