This was an amazing tour! Our guide Theodore 'Teddy' was amazing. He got the group interacting, he was fun cheeky - in a good way, and just made this the absolute best experience we had in Greece. Teddy's knowledge of Greek history was incredible, he knew so much and made it really fun to learn. EVERYTHING...COMES...FROM...GREECE!!! I would highly recommend the tour, the ruin was fantastic at sunset, and the sunset itself was breathtaking. If you are lucky enough to get Teddy as your guide then the whole experience will be 100% better. Also, a shout out to Alex the driver who was also really lovely and professional. His driving was very good and very safe, in a city where driving terrifies me!!!

Guide (Theodore) at the top, very nice to go see the temple at sunset. Too bad for the price of entry (10 euros) not included in the price of the activity. The beach where we stopped was very nice but again any consumption was quite expensive. Good activity in general :)

Teddy was a wonderful guide for this adventure. We had an issue with our van, but he quickly remedied the issue and found us a place to relax and have a drink while we waited. He had plenty of knowledge and trivia to share with us about Greece and patiently answered all of the questioned posed by a young traveler in our group. We arrived with plenty of time to explore the area. It was cold/windy, so be prepared and check the weather before leaving. Unfortunately the sky was cloudy so we didn’t have a great view of the sunset, but it was still a wonderful trip!
