What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

Water, children, food and a boat – this on paper is a match made in heaven. I am a seasoned ‘Explorer’ and wasn’t sure what to expect from this more relaxing holiday compared to the other adventures we had been on, however I needn't have worried at all. Travelling with my wife and two boys, I was absolutely gobsmacked how much we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves through the week. The children of various ages instantly bonded from the moment the crew welcomed us aboard. The combination of sailing around the Greek island of Evia stopping off at a new port each day made this tour both enjoyable yet really interesting. I’m not sure how many jumping off the boat competitions I entered, but every time I got beat by the kids – an absolutely outstanding holiday topped off by the most amazing scenery and hospitality along the way.

Thanos

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Thanos and his crew (his family) are the most likable people you will ever come across. They bent over backwards to ensure the children were always safe when swimming or around the caique, nothing was too much trouble for them. The cook made the most amazing food in the smallest galley I have ever seen, but it hit the spot every time for both adults and children alike. Thanos is very knowledge and passionate about the Greek culture and history and is the perfect host to make history come alive each time we ventured off the boat. We will definitely be going back.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

The cabins are small and hot in the summer months so only pack the essentials in your bag as you will soon realise that no one stands on ceremony when it comes to evening attire. Take a soft holdall as this is easier to store than hard suitcases. Most of our group slept on deck each night to catch any breeze that came our way, this was a nightly routine which was a laugh and a giggle - you might want ear plugs though :-)

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

The weather can play a huge influence on the itinerary so just go with the flow, Thanos will always insure you get the most out of your visit to the beautiful island of Evia.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

Visiting the ancient olive trees and Orthodox church in the tiny fishing village of Panagia and feeding turtles in the nearby stream, followed by eating wonderful fresh fish at a table on the harbourside with our newly made friends, in view of our beautiful caique (boat).

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Thanos was fantastic. Passionately patriotic Greek, he was keen to share his knowledge and love of his home land and culture with us, but not in-your-face. He was wonderful fun with the children. He couldn't do enough for us, making us feel at home on the boat within minutes of boarding and giving such an aura of confidence and competence that I felt completely safe and relaxed.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Book as soon as possible! Don't miss the opportunity to swim from the boat and snorkel in the beautiful clear water. Take plenty of suncream and insect repellent + earplugs - the Evia summer festival can go on most of the night at the weekend.

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

I went on this holiday with my 6 year old son. We both loved it. I could relax and chat to the other adults, whilst my son had a fantastic time with the other children. They were all different ages - he was the youngest, the oldest was 17, but they all got on incredibly well. The boat is an experience and really good fun, the food was wonderful, and the crew were so welcoming. There was just the right amount of activity (going round the island, learning of the culture and history) and total relaxation. A real highlight for me was swimming off the boat every day - sounds daft but I loved it. Lots of finishing touches made it a wonderful holiday.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Thanos is a great tour leader and the crew on the boat were wonderfully relaxed and welcoming

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Chill out and enjoy! Don't pack too much - there's not much space in the cabins and you really don't need a lot.

We were looking for a relaxing week 'away from it all' and this trip delivered completely.  The hospitality we received from Thanos, Peter and captain cannot be faulted - they did everything they could to make sure everyone enjoyed their holiday.  The trip combined visting an area of Greece we would otherwise not have been to, the opportunity to swim in the beautiful turquoise sea most days, the chance to visit some historic sites and enjoy fantastic food, both in local tavernas and particularly from Peter in the galley. The accommodation on the boat was compact and basic, but fine and a part of the experience - you can't beat stepping outside your cabin to see the sun glinting off the sea.  We particularly enjoyed not seeing any other British folk on holiday for the whole week!  Thanos and team took care of everything, leaving us to relax and enjoy our holiday completely.  We have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending this trip. (FGC - 7th January 2011)
