It was an easy hike with an amazing guide Gibson. We stopped by for a coffee in the morning to get some energy to get us going, enjoyed tons of beautiful views, had some beach time, and just enjoyed an awesome conversation with Gibson about everything and nothing. Thank you for a relaxing day!

Francis is a great guide and speaks English very well. The tour takes you to a remote beach that is more popular with the locals. Definitely worth seeing! If you are used to taking longer walks, the tour is not a problem. Sun protection is highly recommended as there is hardly any shade.

Really chilled out walk with Gibson and two philadelphians they were nice and flexible. Learnt a bit about the culture of Greece highlight of my holiday thank you so much guys.

It was a very good experience. Valentina the guide in Tinos was great and she taught us everything very well.

Despite a rainy day, the guide was able to adapt and we took full advantage of this day
