The discovery of Tinos the superb is really worth it. Valentina is a great guide, we learned a lot, especially about the church of Panagia and its anecdotes. The meal organized in the small Tavern was very good. We enjoyed discovering the local craftsmen, in particular the making of wicker baskets and the peeling of capers;) a pity that the convent is closed because we are convinced that Valentina and her love of the island of Tinos would still have taught us a lot of things . Thanks to her and the driver it was great we highly recommend :)

Nice educational excursion Unfortunately, the times given are not correct. The boat would leave at 12 noon and we had to be there 20 minutes before time. There was also no one to be found from the Tour. The boat does not leave until 1315h. So you will not be home until 2200 h instead of the expected 2030 h. Valentina is a good guide and knows a lot.

Very interesting excursion, highly recommended!

The meeting point was given by get your guide as 11 a.m., unfortunately nobody was there at this time. A call to the organizer then informed us that the correct time at the meeting point was 12 o'clock. It only started at 1:35 pm with the ferry. That was a bit annoying, but the whole thing was made up for by the great German-speaking support. We were the only Germans who had an exclusive and very informative travel guide, so to speak, who was responsible for the German information in addition to your colleague. we learned a lot and were also able to ask many questions. For this, a very special thank you! We really saw a lot and it was very informative. This excursion is highly recommended.
