Do this tour. A highly original way to learn the history of beautiful Napflio . 9 participants embarked on a four hour adventure in kayaks, hugging the coastline and stopping for on-water history lessons from our incredibly knowledgeable guide Alex. He is a master story teller, pacing the information so we could absorb it, all the time watching out for us in regard to our control of the kayaks. ( he is highly certified in this as well. ) simple delicious snack part way through when we stopped at a small beach. No skill required. Very memorable trip!

Must do experience.

Alex was fantastic! All of the history and stories made this spectacular. Loved swimming in the sea too.
A must when in Nafplio

After two weeks in Greece, this was absolutely a highlight for us. Alex is an incredibly engaging, passionate and wonderful guide - we learned so much and did so via the fun of kayaking. It’s not too challenging and makes for a great experience for all!
Family excursion - fun for everyone

This was a perfect day for us and everything it promises. Clear and easy instructions for non-kayakers were given at the beginning and everything we needed was provided. The views were exceptional and our guide Alex was very knowledgable and entertaining, providing local and historical information with humor. The visit to a small sandy cove for snacks and snorkerling was a chance to relax and absorb the amazing experience. We were very pleasantly suprised at the quantity and variety of fish we were snorkeling with. We cannot imagine a better way to see the fortress sites of Nafplio and could not have asked for a better host and guide.
True taste of Greek history in relaxed fashion
Heather_B, Aug 2023
This was a really fantastic part of our holiday. Quite apart from the beautiful surroundings and general peacefulness of being on the sea in a kayak Alex , our guide, brought local Greek history to life. Paddling between viewpoints we were told about the battles for control of Nafplion between the Venetians, Ottomans and Greeks. Alex was excellent at setting the scene for the attacking and defending forces. He had obviously read widely and was able to answer all questions. We were captivated by the stories and after the kayaking was finished we drove up to Palamidi Castle. Really excellent day. Thanks Alex.
Great way to see and learn about Nafplio

Alex is knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Nafplio and Greece! The tour was a great way to see Nafplio and the castles by water. It was an easy outing with beautiful sights all around. And the snacks midway through were an added bonus!
Amazing time!

Alex was amazing. Our ship didn’t dock in time to be there exactly at 9am so he waited until we got there around 920. He was so nice. He was very careful to explain all the safety issues. Then his tour was fantastic and he was so knowledgeable and his explanations just brought everything to life. Antonia was wonderful. The little beach they brought us to was incredible and then they offered us fruit and homemade pound cake. The whole experience was awesome. I highly recommend this tour to everyone.
Gently kayaking and history tour in one.

We really enjoyed this experience. Alex is an excellent leader sharing both his considerable knowledge and his enthusiasm both in history and the environment. Would happily recommend this trip. Don't hesitate, this one of our best days in this lovely area.
Fun, friendly, informative.

Loved the history lessons about the forts. It really helped me appreciate what I was seeing and understand something of the backstory.
Perfect paddling day
Pia_G, Sep 2021
We had an awesome time in and outside the Kajak. Alex and Pan were great, they took enough time to explain anything you needed to know and were always there to help us. It was a fantastic experience and if you're lucky you'll get a homemade cake from Alex' mum, it was delicious. Were already looking forward to go on another tour with Alex, he's a funny, open and very friendly guy with special skills for taking great pictures that will remind us on the trip for quite a while. Thanks for everything!
