Really great tour, the guide and driver were brilliant! Each stop is the perfect amount of time and you get to see loads of the island. None of the places were overly packed and none of it felt rushed. I was abit anxious about the hairpin bends before going but the driver was absolutely fantastic and they make you feel super safe, so there’s no need to worry! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting

Amazing experience, stairs not as bad expected. Coming down was a little worse than going up but totally worth it. Beaches were lovely, a little stony on the sand but crystal clear waters. Plenty of activities to do as well.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING !!!!! Loved learning about the filming and learning about the island. Our tour guide was amazing and the bus driver was very skilled. Would love to go again

What a fun well informed little tour. Regina and the driver were great and full of anecdotes

Great trip visiting all the Mamma Mia sites with loads of local information thrown in
