Beautiful scenery!

Organized tour. Knowledgeable guide and very friendly. Always concerned if we needed some waters since it was very hot during our tour. To make everyone is well hydrated.

“The tour was awe-some and Our tour guide Maria is excellent.”

The tour is excellent. Because of the limited time (since I grab the whole day tour), we didn’t have ample time to explore the place but anyway, I recommend that atleast I will spend two days when I come back for this tour. Thank you and more power!

Had an amazing day with Ilias, who were our private driver and guide! He showed us some incredible monasteries and beautiful views. The long train ride from Athen was definitely worth it! A very memorable trip.

Amazing overall

This was one of the best tours I've ever done. The tour guide and the driver were very kind, enthusiastic, and knowledgable. It was the perfect balance of taking pictures, history, and sightseeing. I would recommend this as a must-do trip for anyone!
