Excellent all day tour of Naxos with female guide whos name I dont' recall, but who was a great guide and was very informative. Our driver handled the windy roads, particularly up the mountain well. We visited Demeter Temple, Halki village for Kitron tasting, Apeiranthos village, Apollonos village for lunch and a swim, Kouros of Apollonos statue, and an olive museum for tastings and Oia for sunset, with drop back to hotel. Great value for €25, a comparable bus day tour we did was €50 on Santorini, where everything is a bit more expensive than the other islands. Day is long, and you often don't have much time at stops, so get off the bus quickly and go explore, don't delay or you'll cut into time at each stop
The tour guide and bus driver were wonderful. Very informative and friendly. It was a lot of stops for one day and it felt like some stops were rushed. I would have preferred a couple less stops and more time in Halki, the pottery shop, and/or the olive press site. Side notes for other travelers: they email you the day before with your pickup location (this was really easy and helpful); the only entrance fee was for the first site (4€); lunch was around 2pm and you pay for that too.
Great tour. We were very happy we did it. Our tour guide dimitri was very nice and knowledgeable. He explained everything very well and welcomed any questions we had. He also read Greek poetry towards the end of the tour, which we absolutely loved! It was the perfect way to end the trip. The driver vasily was awesome! His driving skills were amazing, I couldn’t believe he got us through some very tight spaces. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Really lovely and carefully planned out tour! Our guide was fully dedicated to our well-being and gave us a lot of information and fun facts throughout the whole time. Really recommend it to anyone looking for a more mellow, but equally interesting day full of history and delicious tastings!
The was a confusion in the beginning of the excursion with identifying the bus. When we presented our tickets to the guide, we were told that we were supposed to go with a different company. In the end it turned out that the guide did not get the right information.
