We had such an amazing time on this catamaran trip!! the images of the boar are pretty much exactly the same as what is shown online so there are no surprises. There were other couples on the boat that we had drinks with and got to know well. After we all went swimming around Delos island, the captian made an authentic home cooked Greek meal for us in the kitchen which was delicious.

This was one of my favourite things we did in Greece. The guide was amazing and it was such a magical experience to visit.

clear directions of meeting point, boarding time and return. Helpful staff on deck. sufficient time to walk around Mykonos

Very well organized. For me personally, it's better if more time was left for Mykonos instead of Delos. :)

Everything was so well organised and we just had the best day.
