HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! What a fun and beautiful day! Alex and Yannis were great guides. Full of knowledge and enthusiasm. Very professional, kind and well equipped. My husband, 6 year old son and I took the 6 hour tour of the Ancient Sunken City. The hours flew by. We had another 40s-something couple on the trip and Alex and Yannis did a great job of engaging all of us, including my young son. We had a blast kayaking, snorkeling, playing on the beach, swimming and eating delicious fruits and foods cooked by Alex's mum. So lovely! The water is refreshing and clear with mountains rising in the background. You can even see a bit of a volcano. In addition to the sunken city, we saw schools of various fish, sea urchins, sea turtles and coral. We didn't want the day to end and wished we could just bring Alex and Yannis along for the rest of our trip. This would be a great experience for couples, friends, families, team building and even alone. I loved how Yannis had my son in his 2 person kayak. They got to have fun and try to race us to the various beaches. They made a great team. This a wonderful way to spend time in the beautiful outdoors, learn current and ancient Greek history and perspectives and just enjoy life.

This tour was fantastic! Alex and John were very knowledgeable about ancient mythology and shared some interesting theories/stories about the theatre and the sunken city. They even gave us extra info about the big theatre of Epidavros. They took pictures for us and let us take our own photos of the sunken city, which the promptly shared with us after the tour. They gave us plenty of time to snorkel and had a lovely snack of melon and orange cake. The experience is definitely not one to miss!

So far, this tour was easily the best experience we've had during our time in the peleponnese region. Alex is a really friendly and open-hearted guide, who shared many stories with us, not only about the ruins, but also the sealife and life in greece in general. If you have the time, definitely go for the long tour. We booked the short (4h) tour, but took closer to 5h, because we enjoyed it so much and took our time. Time really flies on this tour and if we come back, we'll definitely book the longer tour to see even more of the coast.

The highlight of the tour is of course the sunken city, which is located at a small beach. Alex shared a number of interesting theories about the underwater ruins, which we got to explore equipped with snorkeling masks and a rugged underwater camera provided by him. Afterwards, we enjoyed some fresh fruit and other snacks on the beach. A really fun experience for everyone, who likes kayaking and snorkeling, I think.

I found this tour by chance on and I was amazed as sonn as I met Alex. To me he is a compassionate and warm-hearted person extraordinarily passionate about what he does. A formidable foundation for the tour!
After a brief introduction into kayaking in the old port we made our way into the open water, in the direction of the Sunken City and to the small theatre of Epidavros. Alex provided us with profound knowledge of history, mythology and local information as well as with homemade food. To me, this was a tour where you not only learn about history but also "feel" it while snorkeling through the ancient ruins. This was a perfect experience to me. I highly recommend it.

This is a brilliant activity and I wholeheartedly recommend it. Alex is a lovely fellow and organised the whole thing perfectly. He met us at the waterside, explained the day and had us in the water very quickly. All the equipment was in top-top condition. We visited some lovely beaches, had enormous fun exploring the sunken city with his snorkelling stuff and had a delicious home made lunch. We've done quite a few kayaking trips and I think this was definitely the best, because of his attention to detail and enthusiasm. Even if you've barely kayaked before, it was pretty easy and you should definitely go for it. If nothing else, the scenery is incredible, and Alex himself is such an enthusiastic and attentive guide that you couldn't possibly fault him.

We really enjoyed our Tour with Alex. Alex has great knowledge about the history, legends and environment of the area and it was fun and educational journey.
The kayaking itself is suitable also for people doing it the first time and the route is slightly adjusted taking weather and tour participants into account, but still visiting the main spots mentioned in the tour description.
The snack and lunch were great, we were treated to a homecooked meal and cake.

Thank you Alex for an amazing last day of our Greece vacation.

If you are debating on whether you should do this... DO IT!!! This was the highlight of our month long trip around Greece. Alex was fantastic - so prompt in communication, very friendly, and professional. He oriented us to the kayak and gave tips on how to paddle. Not to mention he has top of the line equipment. We paddled to the ancient theater of Epidavros, had snacks (fruit and homemade orange cake) snorkeled over the sunken ruins, took photos with his underwater camera, and had delicious homemade lunch at a beach. Alex gave great insight and local perspective into Greek mythology, the theater, sunken ruins, etc. We really enjoyed talking with him. He really takes the time to tailor the experience to each group. We hope to be back in the future for his other kayaking tours. I cannot recommend this highly enough!!

Where do I start.. Alex is just the best! The whole experience was just amazing!!! We took a taxi from Athens just to go on this trip and it didn’t disappoint! The ride was supposed to be 2 hours but ended up taking an extra 45 mins so we were late but Alex very kindly managed to accommodate us and added on the extra time at the end so we got to see everything. The home cooked Greek meal was to die for (I want the recipe!) and the sites and tour was something I will never forget. Credit to Alex though as he made the tour, his knowledge of the history, land and mythology was superb plus the extra tips on how to improve my kayaking skills has helped me so much. If you are in Greece do NOT miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity, you won’t regret it!!
