An excellent tour of Naxos’ old town and it’s connection to Greek mythology! Our tour guide was welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. The other members of our small group were friendly too and clearly interested in mythology. Our only issue was reaching the meeting point, as our tour guide said, using Google Maps etc to explore Naxos is a bit pointless as it gets confused with all the narrow streets. Better to ask a local how to reach the meeting point. Overall, a fantastic way to learn and be entertained whilst also exploring the beautiful old town of Naxos!

The tour was thorough and fun. We heard details of greek mythology that we had never heard before. Our tour guide was wonderful with both the kids and adults on our tour, answering all of our questions. I would highly recommend this tour!
