1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Kayaking through the submarine tunnels was incredible.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

There were some moments where we crossed open water on the kayaks that was a bit rough when the wind picked up, so would recomend building a bit of fitness up before hand. The hike to the church ontop of the hill is also steep and I found this a bit hard work to climb in the heat.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Most of the travelling we did was either by walking, cycling or kayaking and this reduced environmental impacts. We would also buy things from the local shops, supporting the community.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Overall, I would recomend this trip, it was a high activity holiday and got to meet some great people and the guide knew a lot about the area and made the holiday very fun. At the time of writing this, we did have to provide our own lunches each day, where I would have paid a bit more to have this provided for us but a really great experience.

Read the operator's response here:

Thank you for your feedback. It is always great to hear people's impressions. All of our trips are tailor made. The trip published on the RT is just a frame and can be tailor made. Some people opt for more SUP touring, others prefer all dinners and all lunches. We are absolutely able to cater to all those needs. We do need to know about them upfront, though. :) All inclusions and exclusions (no lunches) were clearly communicated upfront as has the list of things to bring to make this an epic adventure. We are always open to questions. If we don't get a question, it's hard to give answers. :) Long live adventure!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We have enjoyed every aspect hugely. Food with local people both delicious and a privilege; the apartment was perfect; the island beautiful and seakayaking was awesome - all we could have hoped for. Our guide, Mike, made every trip fun for all four of us - knowledgeable, experienced, caring and fun. It's all been an incredible week.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Go ready to work at paddling - the joys to find in coves and islands are reward for a bit of effort getting there.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We definitely felt the way the operator arranged their guided trips supported the wider local community - a local apartment, breakfast and evening meals with local families, a focus on minimal impact when exploring the islands by kayak. Tourism done the right way is now a critical source of income for the island.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Awesome. We were a family with two teenage boys. We like being active but we're not experienced sea kayakers.
