Great tour with Nicholas to learn about the island and see some sights. Everything was interesting, I just wish we had more time at the pottery workshop and less time at the last stop. There are some nice landscape views as you pass different villages. Definitely not for those with fear of heights as the bus goes mostly on a very narrow mountain road. Bring 6 euro extra- 4 for the entry to the temple and 2 for the tasting of the spirit made locally.
