The cruise was very nice. A large boat which made our voyage smooth. The stops were good and surely take advantage of the swim stops. Note the direction of the sun if you need to worry about it as it gets quite hot. Only issue was that we were not on the inventory of passengers. But they let us on board when I showed them the online booking confirmation.

This cruise is a must, we visited lovely places, given free snorkelling equipment when we went swimming, lunch was lovely, Hosts was fabulous throughout, credit to them, we would like to say Thank you for an amazing time.

We had a fantastic holiday in Lefkada but both myself and my husband voted this trip our favourite day overall….

Amazing tour! Very informative and plenty of swimming! The beds on the boat are soooo good :) Five stars!

Great day out ! Enjoyable food and friendly crew .!
