Visting the peaceful beach where Aphrodite’s rock is located was lovely as was Milomeris Falls. Antonios, are driver was careful and safe. A most enjoyable day out.

This trip was so surprising! I never thought the monasteries could be so captivating and beautiful. Our guide Sofia told us many interesting facts and our driver George was also very nice and drove carefully through the mountain roads. We never felt rushed, there was enough time at every stop. For the price this trip was such a steal!
