James from South Africa
I was looking on the internet a day trip to enjoy myself. I had seen all the sites of Athens and had one free day left. The sneaky shots of OYZO smashed me! Amazing people, amazing atmosphere, and great crew! I would recommend to everyone! Bill, our captain was great!
Beth from England
We were lucky as we sailed from Athens to Mykonos with a flotilla! Our skipper was more than perfect! The hidden cave on the way with the turquoise colours was breathtaking. Amazing yacht and fun experience.
Enrique from Malta
Highly recommended to everyone. Our skipper Tom was great, the team atmosphere was unique and the whole sailing was way out of my expectations. We were thinking to rent a boat on our own, but we would have missed the whole country!
Kimi from Holland
Well organized, friendly skipper, amazing activities and like-minded travellers. Would definitely go back again next summer!
