Santorini: Fabulous Fira, Akrotiri, Santorini’s beaches, Magical Oia, Santorini tastes, Volcanic close-up. Few islands have the power to captivate the way Santorini does.

Athens: The Acropolis and Acropolis Museum, Areopagus and Ancient Agora, The Plaka, Mount Lycabettus. Sun-drenched and mythic, Athens is a big and modern metropolis with inspiring world heritage marvels at its very heart.

And Kuşadası, which dominates the gulf of the same name along this stretch of the Aegean coast, is one of the most vibrant and popular destinations in modern Turkey. It’s been an important port for centuries, hosting a variety of civilizations and for a time some of the most infamous pirates of the Mediterranean Patmos: Skala, Chora, Cave of the Apocalypse, Agriolivado beach. Patmos is shaped like a seahorse, its two main portions joined by a narrow isthmus at Skala. Just five kilometers south from there Chora, the inland island capital crowned with the fortress-like Monastery of St. John the Theologian.

Great experience. Harris was amazing, really informative and customised the tour for us. Was able to answer all questions thrown at him, and even helped out with further recommendations. Only minus i have was that the wine tour was our first stop in the morning - was hoping for a little more from this part of the tour. I would still very much recommend.

This must be the best tour I have ever done. You get to see all the main attractions of the island and explore the caves and beaches around Kefalonia with a great guide. The visit to the vineyard is amazing as you’re surrounded by an incredible landscape while tasting some of the best wine I have ever had. The organization of the tour is impeccable!

Our guide was really adorable, flexible on schedules, times for each destination. It was a real pleasure to do this tour of Kefalonia and to discover this island with a person who knows it well, who explains the places in question to us and answers our questions.

The day was excellent. We were able to see much of the island. Fiskardo was beautiful and the winery lovely. Our driver was amazing- he couldn't do enough to help us.

Great experience! Got to see most of the island in a luxury van. The guide was friendly and informative without being intrusive to our experience.
