Explore the attractive island of Kos and admire white sandy beaches, crystal-clear water and idyllic mountain villages. Start above the city of Kos and visit Asklepieion.

The former temple consists of three levels and was once the place for the foundation stone of modern medicine, because there Hippocrates wrote the oath of the same name, which has survived to this day. Drive on to the small village of Antimachia and see an old windmill and a traditional farmhouse. Continue through olive groves and unspoilt countryside to the Kefalos peninsula. Admire the island's most beautiful beaches and enjoy a Greek lunch (optional) in the picturesque Kamari Bay or take advantage of the opportunity for a short refreshment in the crystal clear sea.

Absolutely to be recommended! We wanted to explore the island on our own and not be dependent on stuffy buses, delays, taxi searches or alternatively rental cars and parking spaces and simply leave our belongings in the car for a day trip. A private driver was the best solution and we can warmly recommend this provider. We were written to in advance after booking and asked about our route for feasibility and timing and were then picked up at the hotel in the morning. The driver himself was super professional, courteous and friendly, the car (a modern minibus) was clean and air-conditioned. We agreed on the times of the pick-up and the driver was always on time to the minute, and we had the WhatsApp number to postpone it if the worst came to the worst. All in all, a perfect, relaxed day out.

The tour was beautiful, the guide, an older man, was very nice and could tell a lot about Greece and Kos and their history. The guide's German was also very good, but of course with an accent. The time between the stations was also perfectly fine, enough time to look at everything.

It would have been interesting to make a stop in Kefalos to get to know this beautiful dreamy place better. Instead, honey production could have been omitted. But otherwise a successful excursion to many participants, unfortunately.

Highly recommended! The guide explained us the history of Kos in perfectly German and for lunch brought us to a tasteful local restaurant for small money, really appreciated. My family and me have enjoyed the tour very much!

nice, sunny day, comfortable bus, not to crowded. great guide, with a lot of knowladge. the day just flew by
