We had a wonderful day. George took us to the Blue Lagoon to Antiparos and we had a stop on the Island of Paros later where we had some delicious local lunch and drinks. George is strict but with cause, he is also a funny, experienced and attentive guy and although we did not open the sails up (no wind), the trip was a great success and we loved it. PS: happy birthday George! :)

This was supposed to be a highlight of our trip to Naxos but it turned out to be our most disappointing day. Although George is clearly an expert sailor and the boat was spotless, his attitude throughout was contemptuous, dismissive and arrogant. I understand that safety must come first, but he was incredibly controlling about who was allowed to sit where, whether we were allowed to use masks or snorkels, whose turn it was to steer. It felt like being back in school.

The actual content of the day was also a let-down. We were not given the opportunity to even discuss where we went, let along choose, and apparently it was not possible to use the sails at all, the whole day. So we just motored to the Rina cave where we were all shouted at to jump off the (still moving) boat. After a very quick swim in and out of the cave we were taken to lunch at George’s mate's tavern in Schinoussa where a mediocre meal for four cost us €150. There were no menus, no prices and very little choice – it was, frankly, a scam. My husband and I were charged €50 for one small fish, and my two kids were charged €25 for starters they did not want. (When we raised this with George afterwards he just said it was our fault for not checking.)

On the way back a few people in the group asked if we could stop for a swim, so George rather grudgingly pulled in to the bay by Alyko beach. But the boat was too far from the shore to do anything other than jump in, swim around, then get back on board again.

In all the day cost my family nearly €600. We would have had a much better time if we’d stayed on the beach.

The most adventurous experience in Naxos!
Since the first moment we understood the Captain George was a true seaman.
We couldn’t ask for a more authentic trip in sail boat.
All the stop were amazing, but the return only sailing was the best we could ask.
Everything was perfect, we reccomend it.

Great trip with great captain. The best part was the cave swim and the sailing on the whole way back.

This sailing tour was the highlight of our trip!! We started the day pretty early and didn’t have enough time to have breakfast, however they offered an assortment of homemade small breakfast pastries and drinks which was amazing. The actual swimming and sailing was so fun, and George was a great/ accommodating host and Captain. The cave swim was insane, it’s all you could ask for. After Ending the day with a visit to a nearby island to have a delicious lunch, we made our way back to be met by dolphins alongside the boat! 1000% recommend, we had grins the whole day! Thank you George!

Amazing experience! Captain George took us on a private tour, as we were only 2 people that day.
We saw dolphins, a turtle and of course a lot of fish when snorkelling. We got to swim in an amazing blue lagoon, and in the caves.
A great day and more than worth its price! Would recommend!

My wife and I enjoyed a day of sailing from Naxos to Paros which included two snorkeling stops on the way. Captain George and crewman Cornelius are excellent sailors and entertaining travel guides. Wear your bathing suit and bring a towel and your mask and snorkel,although masks, snorkels and noodles are provided.

A very different day and a must do activity if you're in Naxos.

PLEASE READ!!!

First of all, he's gonna try to write a long article on how he "doesn't remember us" or "we seemed happy" or whatever that's gonna make us seem to be the unreasonable customers. But PLEASE hear me out before you book this trip.

I booked this trip last August when my partner and myself visited Naxos and Captain George's boat was the only one that still had some availability when all other companies were not available. We paid in advance and showed up the next morning. Turns out the reason why his company was available was it was a really windy day and it wasn't suitable for sailing. But Captain George was very confident that it was gonna be fine although he was the ONLY crew member on board! There were 20 of us on board and only one girl had some sailing experience.

The tour started with very nerve wrecking waves outside of the port and I was very nervous. One of the girls on board didn't know how to swim so was asking for a life jacket because the boat was rocking back and forth and she was terrified. But Captain George was a bully and refused to give her a life jacket. I was also told off by him because I asked a few times where we were going as it was very difficult to understand his accent. Eventually after a nerve wrecking trip we got to this place where we could go for a swim. The same girl who asked for life jacket asked again as she wasn't good at swimming and Captain George being a bully himself told her either she jump without the jacket or just sit on board. I never understand why he did that ...

When we got to Paros we were taken to this restaurant. Myself and some others didn't like the menu so we decided to find somewhere else to eat. When I told him that we would find something else and we will meet him later out of politeness he was so rude and pissed that we wouldn't eat at this place he probably gets commissions for ...

Later in the afternoon after speaking with a few other crew members of some other boats at the port we decided that it wasn't safe to go back to Naxos on his boat. So we just left and took the ferry back to Naxos. We told someone else on the same tour to let him know. But he actually did't count the number of people before departing Paros and realised that we were gone after the boat is way out of the port.

The whole trip was anything but relaxation and fun. Captain George is a bully and was very unreasonable with his customers. Myself and many others didn't feel safe at all but that seemed to be the least of his concerns.

His Google review page had similar reviews on he made someone else cry but now that page doesn't exist anymore. I don't know if it's because he again is trying everything he can to avoid bad customer feedbacks.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

LUKE W ***** Best sailing/Boat trip in Naxos Review of: Naxos Daily Sailing Tours Amazing experience, Captain George was super fun and generous, provides all equipment (snorkeling, etc) and leads all round spectacular day!! (Which captain takes photos of and provides you with a dvd full of memories and the end of the trip) Whether you want to sit back and relax, or learn how to sail George will accommodate for either. All things considered, including a lower price than all other boat trips, Naxos sailing is the one to do ! Ref to review. The big problem with some unsatisfied guests is that Trip Advisor does not give to the owners to fix some documents like photos from the tour (A photo is a thousand words) in the reviews on response and some when they satisfied during the touring band many thanks at the night in the yacht to pick the DVD, later they are strange and fix a bad review. This is the reason I ;m copy reviews from the same day from other guests. And now the reality. In the morning we have a 20 minutes briefing about the weather and the desired destination, this happened from my 45 years of experience in professional yachting in Greece. The above guest choose to enjoy their lunch altogether,I Never had Any Commission from the islanders all these 20 years of Daily Tours in Naxos. These tests were not familiar with the sea also they do not swim very well and I did not take the risk for their safety to live them to swimming even at 3 meters depth. Later in Paros, they did on the clear beach with low deep waters. If I have the possibility to publish some photos from them in the response I can do to see the truth. IIn the summertime I cancel some tours due to wind bout not for us or for the yacht performance But for the guests comfortability and we rescheduled the tour another day. Thank you George

If you want to get the full sailing experience - Naxos sailing will definitely fulfill your expectations. You get to see beautiful spots around Naxos and Paros and you get the chance to actively participate in the sailing trip. Be aware that George has clear expectations and will tell you what to do ;)
Overall it is a great combination of fun, relaxing and actively seeing some beautiful spots around the islands!
Highly recommended - thank you George!
