What people are saying about Kos

Amazing experience. A must-do activity when visiting Kos! We arrived at the Old Port and walked along the marina until we saw the Odyssey boat and picked a great seat on the deck (we later realised this seat would be the prime splash zone while at sea but we loved it!) The crew of the Odyssey boat were so friendly, we felt like we were in safe capable hands. The captain provided some great insights about the local area and the islands we visited (all in English) and the time spent in all 3 locations was just enough. Amazing experience to swim off the boat, disappointed that the dolphins all seemed to be hiding when we sailed by the fish farms but not to be helped! Great to have lunch provided (even catered for Veg/vegan). Nice atmosphere with the music and be prepared to get up and dance with the crew before you arrive back at the port! Can’t fault the experience, we had so much fun.

Steve is a skilful driver and a very entertaining guide. He had tons of cool stories to tell about the places we visited. The tour took us to some unique and beautiful spots that we certainly wouldn‘t have seen otherwise. The car was spotless and very comfortable. Unlike on other (boat) tours we took, the lunch at a tavern was delicious! We had a fun day and can highly recommend the experience. Thanks again Steve!

We were a group of 7 attending this activity . The weather on the day was really sunny with no wind making the experience excellent. The trip, the transfer and overall experience was pretty good . We enjoyed the day visiting the abandoned village and the volcano. Highly recommended this trip and is a must when visiting Kos

Wow!☀️ Amazing sailing and good vibes! Captain and his crew is are polite and smiling people. Vegan lunch was excellent and delicious! Thank! ❤️

Loved it, amazing way to see the other islands and great value for money. Really worth it.
