It was excellent! Our guide Vasiliy took us to everywhere we could possibly want to go, and then new places that were aligned with our interest beyond that. He was a safe driver, friendly, and clearly knew his way around the area. One of the best things I’ve done in our time in Greece.

Caring and nice driver, who had received a different info than we had ordered. But, no problem for him to be flexible. Comfortable car, felt safe and secure. Overall a very nice excursion.

It was nice to have transportation, our guide spoke English just not super fluent. Overall great experience

Great driver! Very friendly and knew exactly where yo go
