We are exploring several cities in Greece. Some I knew quite a bit about and a few that I knew very little about. Vasilis (Bill) showed us around the town of Nafplio. He gave us the history of the Old Town... the city walls... the Bourtzi Castle... The Palamidi Fortress and so much more. I felt like I had a much better understanding of the town and this helped me enjoy my stay so much more.
Our tour was perfect. Vasilis was at the agreed place on time. He has told profound knowledge of the city in very good English in an entertaining way. It's a shame that we no longer had time for other wonderful experiences such as a bike tour with wine tasting. Super recommended!
We were a group of 4 people and were excellently guided through the food culture of Greece. We also learned a lot about the history of Nafplio and Greece. Our guide also responded extraordinarily to our questions about the culture and customs of the Greeks.
The treatment of our guide and its preparation left us eager to return to Nafplio! A beautiful tour. Excellent
Great day picked up from the airport and went straight on the tour.
