I absolutely loved my time at Sails! There are loads of volunteers who are all great fun and the team is so welcoming and understanding. I was lucky to be able to work extra shifts in my first week meaning that I could choose whether to be paid extra hours, or to take extra days off; I took the days off and had the best time exploring the island. You get 3 meals a day, you can have as much or as little as you want which is great!

I would 100% recommend this to anyone and everyone, the site is right by the beach and there is a bus into the city regularly, so you’re never bored:)

I really enjoyed my stay in Kos! .I fell in love with the Aegean Sea, so blue! a peaceful place to think and write if you are looking for some time to enjoy yourself. George's family make you feel more than welcome and the volunteers always find a way to have fun. The work schedules are easy and leave you plenty of time to enjoy local life. I look forward to coming back...💙💙💙

I finished my Sails on Kos experience a week ago and I already miss that place.
It was my first time volunteering, but I think it will be hard to top.
As soon as I arrived, I was welcomed by this generous and warm-hearted family and immediately felt at home. The work wasn't hard, the hours were respected and I had plenty of free time to relax and get to know the whole island. The atmosphere was amazing, not only among the family and volunteers but also with the guests.
Sails on Kos is without a doubt the perfect place for an unforgettable experience.
I hope to be able to come back soon! 💙

My time at Sails is going to be hard to top. From the beginning I was welcomed by this warm-hearted family who made me feel like home from the very beginning. The work wasn’t too hard, work hours was respected and there was enough flexibility to enjoy the island. The atmosphere here is amazing and so are the sunsets. My highest recommendation 💙

My experience with Alexi and his wonderful family was amazing! I really want to go back one day. The place is beautiful and has a magical energy. I was able to improve my English, get to know new cultures and new cuisines.
