Wir haben spontan morgens früh für den gleichen Tag gebucht. Alles hat super geklappt. Aufgrund von Covid waren wir nur zu zweit und hatten daher eine private Tour. Der Guide war super sympathisch und hat uns viel erzählt. Würden ihn aufjedenfall weiter empfehlen. Wir wurden am Anfang unserer Tour auch zu einem "Imbiss" gefahren, wo wir vorher nochmal auf Toilette gehen konnten. Die Tour hat dich aufjedenfall gelohnt, vor allem für solche die nur für einen Tagstrip aus Athen angereist sind ufn ist auch genau auf solche zugeschnitten. Das nächste Mal würde ich aber eher eine Tour bei Sonnenuntergang machen und eine Nacht dort schlafen.

Chris was knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. We have the perfect amount of time at each location. Very informative! We also had some great opportunities for pics after the monasteries at some beautiful places!

We had a shopping & toilet break on the very beginning of the tour, so don't worry if you arrive unprepared. The guide Chris was interesting and funny, the tour was well balanced; not exhausting, but we still managed to see quite s lot.
