Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Do not book this tour. I’ve spent time on this tour last year and still regretted. I’ve contacted customer service with no support. Attached is my communication with Viator/Tripadvisor.

False advertisement: First, it's not even remotely "semi-private," the boat is filled with a bunch of other groups (mainly the boat driver's female friends) who are NOT paying customers. These girls were given special privileges to operate, utilize comfortable seatings with shades, and even handle the steering wheel to operate the boat. The consensus was these girls were the boat driver and his friends' girlfriends.

Unprofessionalism: One person, who was an elderly lady, on board wasn't feeling well and asked all "paying guests" if we could skip the last dive and we all agreed. Yet, the crew refused to accommodate us. This resulted in the elderly lady nearly passing out due to excessive heat exposure. On top of this, the bad time management caused our tour to extend an hour beyond the time listed. The boat driver and his friends were late for nearly everything. We arrived at our meeting spot to conclude the cruise over an hour late, causing us to nearly miss out on the last tour we booked.

Mistreatment: The crew routinely kicked all "paying guests" out of the shaded bench, so their girlfriends could sit and pose for photos, while the rest of us got severe sunburn (two of the victims were part of our group). They wouldn't let us sit anywhere else outside of the uncomfortable side of the boat, which was extremely painful. To make matters worse, they often yelled commands at everyone, making it difficult to have a good time with their aggressive behavior. One guy on board drank way too much, and they still kept offering him alcohol despite clearly being intoxicated. Honestly, they should be investigated for how careless, inappropriate, and irresponsible they were throughout the whole cruise.
To provide some rebuttal to the claim that we showed up late: We were the second group that showed up. When we arrived, the boat driver was still waiting for another group to join us. In addition, we showed up at the exact same time as the boat driver's girlfriends. Therefore, this claim that we were late is false.

Conclusion: The bad customer experience, mistreatment, and false advertisement have led us to submit this complaint and request.

All of us have booked with TripAdvisor before and are loyal customers, this is the first time ever we all had to file a complaint. This is a serious case for us and we need to get this sorted before we proceed with directing this over to TripAdvisor management.

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 This review with all photos and documents of this guest we will give to our Lawyer company for the rights,(this guest in Paros had psychological problems and we called an Ambulance to the hospital that they stying till the night FerryBoat moved them to Naxos.All the afternoon we had contact with the Hospital and his friends .Next day they came from the yacht and saying many thanks about our Hospitality,Trip Advisor not give to the owners the posibility to fix photos from our Activities ,One Photo are 1000 words. This guest make another review some years ago that means is not healty. George

I booked with Captain George the private sailing tour for my birthday, and it was excellent! The crew was very nice and funny! My friends and I had a wonderful time and would do it again! We sailed across small Cyclades and saw all the beautiful beaches and crystal clear blue water! Thank you Captain, you do a great job.

Travelled from Canada to Naxos and planned this sailing day to celebrate one of my friend's birthdays.
It was an early morning start and was a little chilly considering the time of year we went, but the views leaving the port in the morning were very pretty.
Due to the weather, the original trip we hoped to go on was unavailable (it happens!), but we still got to see many noteworthy attractions and Captain George did a great job at explaining the history and significance of what we were seeing.
We stopped a few times to swim, one time being into a cave. They provided a small snack and beverages and also took us to a different small island to enjoy lunch. It is worth noting that this restaurant very up many stairs and I feel this was difficult for some of the members of our group. Lunch was great though!
Unfortunately, we did not see any wildlife or marine animals, once again, it happens. Impossible to guarantee these things.
Overall, it was lovely getting out on the water and enjoying the boat ride.
Captain George is quite the character, very funny and endearing.

I was on one day trip to Koufonisia with Theosos. It was great pleasure to sail with this captain. Passenger may feel that they are safe, captain knows Cyclades backwards and forwards. Nice atmosphere on boat, local snacks. I really recommend this company and captain!

I totally recommend this boat cruise! It was absolutely the highlight of our trip in Naxos. A well spent day with beautiful people on board that made our day! Nice sightseeing around blue crystal water. Captain Thiseas and his co captain Angel were very friendly and willing to explain us a lot! While in Naxos don't miss this amazing and funny experience!
