It clearly exceeded our expectations. We were picked up from the hotel on time. Chilled bottles of water awaited us on the bus for free. At our first stop we looked at turtle nests with our guide Sakis from Dalí-Tours and learned a lot of information about the Caretta turtle. After that we went to the glass bottom boat, where we were able to take sensational pictures of a turtle. Then we went on to the Keri caves. There we made a stop for swimming and dived through one of the caves. Diving goggles are a must to see the beautiful crystal blue sea water from below. After swimming, we continued to Marathonisi, the infamous Turtle Island. There we had the opportunity to have a small snack, which was sold on site. The olive oil museum afterwards was unplanned, but extremely interesting. We also had the opportunity to taste and buy various olive oil products.

While there was a bit of a delay with getting on the boat not the drivers fault, once on the boat we had a fabulous time. Plenty of opportunities to swim, we got to see a turtle and the driver was careful to not get too close. I thought it was a great day.

Very well planned & organized, great value for money. Our driver george was the best and our boat captain who's name I did not catch was great too, highly recommend this tour

Very good experience where we were able to see turtles, discover part of the island and learn more about the manufacture of Greek olive oil

Skilled guide Value for money! Beautiful "must see" experience
