Our guide was awesome! He is really funny and outgoing. Go Konstantinos! The destinations are really cool and interesting the coolest part was the waterfall wich looked just amazing and was so refreshing to swim in! The thing that was really special about the tour was the small size of it. Only one jeep with 8 people in it allowed for us to take as much time as we wanted at every stop and connect with the other passengers and also Konsantinos and ask him a lot of questions. The higlights of the tour were: The beautiful waterfall, the amazing venetian bridge, the crocodile story, aphrodites rock, the ride down to the waterfall (the roads were steep but we had a lot of fun) and of course the winery with delicious wine tasting and a really nice view over the valley (we sat down looked at the scenery and enjoyed the wine)

Our guide, Sofia, was very knowledgeable, I liked very much the way she was telling us all the stories and the myths. The bus was very comfortable, in my opinion, we were given enough time at each stop to roam around. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Had a fabulous day our guide Konstantinos was fabulous and knowledgble would definitely recommend thanks for a great day James and Fiona 🥰
