Great experience, highly recommended
, Oct 2021
We had a great time and being a small group was definitely nicer than some of the bigger cruises we've seen online. The boat was beautiful, the team onboard was super kind and funny, the food was great, we honestly had the best time and are so happy we booked this cruise for our last day in Santorini.
Really nice trip
, Sep 2021
Lovely trip. Sunset was beautiful. Swimming was fun. Was a small group so nice intimate setting. Food was tasty. Would recommend this tour for the sunset alone.
Awesome Sailing Cruise
, Sep 2021
What we liked about this cruise is that there were only 10 people allowed on a tour, we like small number of people. The food was yummy, and the staffs were really nice and knowledgable about the area which we enjoyed learning about Santorini. We highly recommend this tour.

Lovely cruise with an amazing crew!
, Sep 2021
It was such a fun friendly experience. The crew were so knowledgeable about the island and interacted with everyone on board. I liked this more as a smaller boat of just 8 of us so no pushing or shoving or waiting for anything. The meal on board was delicious and we were constantly served any drinks when we wanted
Beautiful cruise & nice people!
, Sep 2021
We had the very best time on the boat. It was one of our highlights in Santorini! We started at Vlychada Beach, saw Akrotiri Lighthouse and went to Nea Kameni. We stopped three times to go for a swim in the sea and also had the chance to swim at the hot springs near the volcano. The people on the boat were very lovely and Martha and Paris are super nice people. They told us interesting facts about the island and took really good care of us. Defintely worth checking the tour out!
Perfect experience and a must do
, Aug 2021
Excellent experience for the great meal to the music attitude and of course the view! The smaller mono hull sailboat and 10 guest limit was perfect for our family. A must do while in Santorini.

Rocky waters but good experience
, Oct 2019
We went out of a day where the waves were really bad and the other couple with us got very sick. But the crew did a wonderful job of accommodating everyone and making the best of the situation. The food was delicious and the views were amazing. Would recommend this tour but also to check the weather before you go out.
Brilliant day out

My wife and I finished our 5 week Balkans tour with this sunset cruise and I can easily say it was one of the top highlights of our trip. We especially enjoyed the small number of people on the cruise 7 guests and 2 crew members. We almost felt as though we were on a private tour! The crew was fantastic... We never had an empty beer or wine and the food was absolutely delicious! We enjoyed swimming in secluded areas and relaxing on the front of the boat as the sun set on our last night in Greece.

All so worth it !!! I was picked up on time from my hotel. The people at the marina were extremely warm and welcoming. Most of all - the sailing crew were the BEST !!! Great and funny tour guides while skipping the boat, cooked up a delicious meal, took the best pictures of the guests, provided us with blankets and jackets for the cold weather and kept us smiling and laughing all the time. The background music was perfect. Even though the sun decided to hide behind the thick clouds the entire time - this was one trip so well worth it !!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. BARCAS SAILING !!!
