We booked a private boat and car tour, you will not regret this! Beating the crowds, stopping and swimming when and where you want, in some of the clearest blue water, private beaches to yourself! I mean who gets a private beach to themselves in Greece in July!!!! But best of all was our guide Iraklis, he made the day! such great energy, they say you can really tell when someone loves what they do and he really does! We spent the day with a friend not a guide! Treat yourself and go private!

Iraklis guide was very good organized during the trip, he showed us special places with local history, presented in a very interesting way the itinerary and he created a wonderful atmosphere within the group. If you want an amazing day than you have to choose this tour and Iraklis! Enjoy it!

The tour was really easy to book, we were collected on time from our accommodation, the tour guy is very friendly and chatty you really enjoy your time from the begging till the end of the tour,
