Breathtaking views. Gives you the opportunity to go into 2 monasteries and a 3rd stop to stand out on boulders to get panoramic views from afar of the monasteries. The tour guide provided adequite history info on bus transit about monestaries as well as key landmarks on the way. Tour allowed you free roaming once on the ground so you could do what you wanted with the hour or so stops. Food was great!

The four of us had a great time, crew were really good fun. Drink & food plentiful, the Sunset was great & swimming off the boat was enjoyed by several onboard. Sat with some lovely people, a couple had just got engaged that morning, two girls from France (one was celebrating her birthday) so everyone was in high spirits & it really made the trip. Would highly recommend.

Great English speaking guide interesting information about the island and what we saw Lovely to have two hours stop at the northernmost village for lunch and look at village caves great. Coach comfortable. Plenty of toilet stops. We were so glad to have been on the winding narrow mountain roads with an extremely good coach driver instead of driving ourselves.

Well organised trip and a lot to see. Our guide Eva was very informative. Lovely views along the way

Wonderful experience. Guide and driver were well informed and welcoming
