AMAZING!! Giannis, our guide, did an incredible job in explaining the main landmarks and also additional information as we drove to our destination. He is communicative, informative, and professional. We couldn't have asked for a better guide! Highly recommend!!

our guide was very good, but I wish you could’ve taken us into any of the places we stopped. It was not clear from the description that he was only a driver. He did do a lot of explaining of things we would see, but it was not the same as having someone with us. Apparently that could’ve happened, but it was never offered.

Amazing trip, Tas was our driver and was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He covered everything from battles, mythology, the culture, etc. Tas showed up on time and made us feel like family. He made ajustments to our tour to show us more of his beautiful country and finished the day off in a outstanding restaurant that he recommended. We would strongly recommend this tour group and would recommended you ask for Tas.
