What people are saying about Naxos

This is the best way to see the beautiful island of Naxos! As a group of 6 women, we considered renting a van for our recent trip to Naxos. What a relief it was to find this alternative. Our driver Nikolaus picked us up at our hotel and drove us to several beautiful villages and beaches. The itinerary was entirely up to us but he offered suggestions. The price was comparable to a rental and we were able to tour Naxos safely, we did not have to worry about parking as Nikolaus dropped us off and with a text message was back to pick us up within 5 minutes. I can not recommend this rental enough! Thank you again Nikolaus!!!!

Steven was an excellent driver; he helped us decide the route that made the most sense. He shared a lot of information about Naxos. Highly recommend this driver and experience for people looking to see the small towns of Naxos without being on a big bus or having to drive yourself. An excellent time !
