Our hiking tour with Thomas was exceptional. The route was well planned and engaging. The guide paced our walk perfectly for our group and took us to many scenic spots and interesting locals. Thomas was knowledgeable about every facet of the landscape - the history, botany, local farming practices, the economy, the culture. He generously shared his experience and was able to answer our many questions. Afterward, we felt we could look around Naxos and understand so much more about what we were seeing. Our many thanks to Thomas and for the comfortable, proficient drivers who saw us to and from our hotel.
