  • Very good place for kids. There are snakes and lizards as well. The Crew is very polite and respectful to the kids. Amazing experience for the little ones!!!
  • Unequivocally one the best family days out, great safe educational fun for all, a literally hands on experience
  • The biggest in Greece, very nice for all ages, especially kids. Nice, friendly staff
  • Aquaworld was amazing! The staff were kind, friendly and extremely funny. They allowed us to take pictures of the animals whilst holding them and had a great array of sea animals and reptiles. Entry for 2 adults was €16, we arrived at opening time (10AM) to see the animals being fed and my girlfriend and I had an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend
  • It is truly an amazing place to visit even though it is quite small. The guides readily explain everything about all the animals - it is clear they love their pets a lot. The most amazing part is at the end: big and small snakes, turtles, lizards and iguanas - all you can touch, caress and even hold! Our daughter did not want to leave asking for "yet another snake":) We recommend this place to everyone!
