What people are saying about Andros Island

Our host Chantal was great and very knowledgeable of the island and its attractions and history. Given it was only us on the tour, she also went out of her way to make sure the tour is as tailored to our needs and interests as possible. Definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see a lot of different aspects of the island in a relatively short amount of time.

Our guide, Angela (english version of her Greek name) was wonderful. Her English is very good, she explained not only the history of the island but gave us a wonderful insight into the culture as well as introducing us to delicious local foods and customs. My husband and I were very happy with this tour and felt we got to see a lot of this beautiful island.
