We enjoyed the activities & places we visited on the tour. Our driver & tour guide were excellent. However, Covid protocols were not totally followed. One man in particular did not wear his mask on the bus. Nothing was said to him by the tour guide as far as we could tell. He remained non compliant

Excellent activity, highly recommend. Did this on September 10th, 2021. The host communicated ahead of time about our pick up location making it very easy to start the tour. Very well planned and executed. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Naxos Island and it’s history. Naxos is a beautiful island and this tour takes you all over, from sea level to tiny villages in the mountains. The stops were fabulous especially at the pottery shop, so many beautiful items to look at and purchase plus the 4th generation potter does a wonderful live demonstration. This tour gives you a great overview of how life on Naxos was and is currently. Our tour guide was fabulous and our bus driver was highly skilled at maneuvering the narrow, twisted roads. Thank you to both of them for a great day!

Excellent all day tour of Naxos with female guide whos name I dont' recall, but who was a great guide and was very informative. Our driver handled the windy roads, particularly up the mountain well. We visited Demeter Temple, Halki village for Kitron tasting, Apeiranthos village, Apollonos village for lunch and a swim, Kouros of Apollonos statue, and an olive museum for tastings and Oia for sunset, with drop back to hotel. Great value for €25, a comparable bus day tour we did was €50 on Santorini, where everything is a bit more expensive than the other islands. Day is long, and you often don't have much time at stops, so get off the bus quickly and go explore, don't delay or you'll cut into time at each stop
