    We were a group of 9 and this private tour was the best we did in Greece!!! Both brothers were very helpful and told us Greece history during our trip. We’ve taken other boat trips with snorkeling in other places but this one was special bcse they taught us how to do that and were patient with my kids. They took more than the 7 hrs they advertised. At the end they recommended us one restaurant and took us there. He helped us to order... they were LO MAXIMOOOO!!!

Fantastic!

This was a great excursion! Our guides were so informative, professional and very friendly! And the views from the water were amazing. Definitely worth the value. The kayaking was not extremely difficult even with the choppy water due to the winds. The meal was delicious and they were extremely accommodating to our dietary requests. We would definitely recommend this adventure. We never felt rushed by our guides. And the pickup and return to our hotel made this trip so easy.

Excellent!!! Excelente y 100% recomendable

Terrific adventure!

Kayaking was an absolute blast! Our guide and driver took us on a "private" tour around Cape Sounion where we did kayaking, snorkelling, dinner, and caught a beautiful sunset at the Temple of Poseidon. I really recommend this activity to anyone who wants a break from the tourist attractions of Athens and wants to try something physical!

Fantastic! Excellent afternoon in the sea and ended with a walk around the Temple of Poseidon and a traditional Greek meal on the beach. I would give 6 stars if I could. The service from the company was impeccable and our guide was amazing. I wholeheartedly recommend this trip.
