Reviews

"Otroligt bra service"

 Stort utbud av utflykter till bra priser. Ett plus att kunna få hjälp på svenska vid bokning. Vi kommer definitivt boka genom dem igen. Malinkrch, Jan 2020

"Good service"

 I used Destination Platanias' services to book a sup boarding trip. It was easy to book and pay for the trip via their internet pages. I really enjoyed the trip. The guys at the sup boarding company were really friendly and helpful. Where the sup boarding takes place is beautiful. If you have a waterproof camera, do take it with you. - Kati P, Dec 2019.

"Mine bedste anbefalinger"

  Efter 40 besøg på Sonio siden år 1996 . Kan jeg kun anbefale disse 3 skønne/aktive kvinder (de var jo næsten børn da vi læret dem og kende ;.) Hvis du ønsker en indholdsrig og aktiv ferie og som os tilbagelænet ferie tilrettelagt af dem, kontakt denne side. Mine bedste anbefalinger, fra hele min store famile som selvfølgelig også kommer i Platanias." Tom Barnbæk  2018.
