This was a fantastic tour for my husband and I. Alex provided so much insight into the background of Nafplio, and did so in a way that was memorable and entertaining even to my hubby (who's more of an adventure person then a history one). He is a fantastic storyteller. A snack (with delicious cake baked by his own Mom!) was provided on a beautiful beach that had the clearest water we saw in all of our time in Greece. Snorkeling equipment was graciously provided and it was very interesting to us Canadians to see the unique varieties of fish swimming about. We found this tour to be the perfect length of time for us, and the kayaking portion neither too strenuous nor too slow-paced for two reasonably fit people. The kayaks and equipment provided were all in great shape and we were pleasantly surprised by the level of organization demonstrated throughout this tour. We feel the value for the price is exceptional, and cannot recommend Pan Expeditions (and Alex, our guide) highly enough. Don't hesitate to book this one.

A unique and exciting way to see the city of Nafplio and learn the history. Alex was kind with the kids (7&9 yrs), well informed and helping. We definitely recommend the tour and will surely go for the "sunken city tour" next time we visit the area. Great way to make good memories as a family

Alex, the tour guide, is a truly exceptional guide. Along with the requisite kayak and outdoor experiences, what Alex truly brings is an engaging personality and constant entertainment. While kayaking through the ocean, Alex blended tales of medieval Napflio with modern stories and funny life anecdotes. We learned a ton about the area and thoroughly enjoyed delicious snacks (including homemade cake) on the beach post-Kayak. Alex later took the time to give a host of recommendations from dining to activities after the tour over email helping to plan the remainder of our trip. Alex, thanks again for a wonderful time!

Alex's tour is much more than a Kayak ride. We swam in the warm, clear Aegean water; we snorkelled; we learned Nafplio’s key role in medieval history; we ate lunch together. We learned so much that when we went to Palmidi castle the following day, we understood how and why the castle existed. It was exciting and memorable.
We also kayaked quite a distance- without any problems. Don't worry about the paddling - my wife and I are no longer young; yet Alex paced the trip so that we stayed with our younger trip members without any issues at all.
Alex loves his work and he loves Nafplio!

What an amazing experience. We had so much fun. Alex is a great guide. He was very good at teaching us how to kayak. He told us the history of Nafplio. We saw all the castles and kayaked to a very small beach where we were able to go snorkelling or just for a swim. He also put out an assortment of fresh fruit and home made cake. He took just beautiful pictures of us during our tour. I highly recommend doing this tour and I know for sure i will be back next year to do another tour with Alex. :)

This was a great and unique tour as it combines paddling with history. It is such a nice route along the coastline of Nafplio as you can view all the historic sites from an unusual perspective and the scenery is just beautiful. The paddling was very relaxed and the time flew by. Alex has a great storyteller and knows a lot about the local history, but was also ready to chat with us about the current situation and the environment in Greece - it was really interesting to get insights by a local. We had also a nice break at a small beach with melons and a cake. Overall a very recommendable tour!

The scenery is amazing and it’s incredible peaceful being out on the water in a kayak. More importantly though, the guide was amazing and really went above and beyond to ensure that we had a good time. Very knowledgeable about the local history if you’re interested, with lots of stories about the castles and town, and something we really liked was that he took lots of pictures with his waterproof camera so we have great memories of the trip. Definitely the highlight of Nafplio for us.

Fabulous tour! My husband, myself, and our two teens had a terrific time kayaking with Alex. Beautiful scenery, tucked away coves for swimming, fascinating history, an impeccable guide, and cake made by his mamma. To boot, Alex was so helpful and keen for us to learn however much we wanted to about how to kayak more efficiently. I'm dreaming of doing a 7-day kayak trip with Pan Expeditions next year. Thanks so much, Alex!

We had a great time with Alex! He made the trip worth while as the weather wasn't the best. Great knowledge about the castles and their histories, made the trip up to Palamidi Fortress even more special because we understood its history and importance. We stopped on some beautiful beaches for a couple of breaks and some lunch. Can't recommend enough!

a wonderful experience through and through. The kayaking itself was great fun (and too difficult), and the scenery was absolutely gorgeous. On top of that, the crew - Alex and Pan - were fantastic; super nice, and extremely knowledgeable. oh, and the beaches we stopped at were beautiful. So this tour is definitely recommended!
