We had such a fabulous day with Nikos and Semeli! It was an easy walk from the cruise ship to the beautiful boat. We were a family of 8 adults and a 3-yr-old. The day could have not been more perfect! We sailed and stopped a couple of times for swimming and amazing pictures. The lunch Semeli prepared was also absolutely delicious! I highly recommend booking the tour!

This was an amazing Sailing trip! I brought my Finacee for his Birthday present!! He is very interested in sailing and learning more about it and Nikos was super sweet and showing him a lot about how sailing is!! We saw some beautiful places, had a lovely Greek lunch and wine and the entire experience was just Amazing! Nikos was also a great guide and can tell you a lot about the history of the places we visited!! Definitely recommend this trip to anyone.

Can’t recommend this trip enough. We always do boat trips where ever we holiday in the Greek islands, and this was a fantastic day. Nikos suggested we join another couple for a semi-private trip, and I think having 4 of us was perfect (see their review below!) a chance to relax, make new friends and enjoy the day.

Firstly the boat was immaculate, I have never been on such a beautiful clean and comfortable boat. With 4 (or even if you were 6) there there is space to stretch out without feeling like you are stopping others from doing the same (I’ve been on others that say ‘luxury sailing yacht’ and you can’t even lie down to sunbathe without being in someone’s way).

Secondly the drinks and food, constant offers of water/beer/wine and snacks. Plus a lovely lunch of pasta/salad and home-made meatballs (Auntie dies a great job).

The sailing was fun, the stops and the clear blue sea beautiful. Nikos was so knowledgeable about the area, the history, and also other places to visit on this lovely island.

If you get the chance book your trip you will not regret it. It really did feel like a special day out.

We had a beautiful day sailing with Nikos and Alex and a group of 4 on the "Be Happy". Great places to swim and snorkel after a jump from the boat, afterwards relaxing on deck with a beer or glass of wine. Perfekt introduction to sailing from Nikos and Alex, with the opportunity to steer the boat. They also did a nice job in the kitchen for lunch. Nikos gave us a lot of information about sailing and about things to do in Crete. The Souda bay offers some protection as well as the opportunity for more wind and waves further out. So we highly recommend the trip.

We had a great week with family on Crete. This day however, is without doubt the one that will stick in our memories. We had an amazing day on the boat, with views, baths, laughter and great food and drinks. Thank you Nikos and Alex. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Crete.
