A must-do

A fantastic day: our guide Demetra was AMAZING, she knew a lot of things, she knew the *right* things, knew when to tell us, was always there for us and a lovely person human-wise. The trip was well set, well organized, the places where fantastic. A must-do, you see things you normally don't menage to see! I would go every day!

Very nice tour. The guide - Demitria - full with knowledge, lovely. The bus and the driver were comfort and reliable. But... your site told us that it would be a 7 hour tour. It took 12 hours !! Please update the information in your site.
