The discovery of Tinos the superb is really worth it. Valentina is a great guide, we learned a lot, especially about the church of Panagia and its anecdotes. The meal organized in the small Tavern was very good. We enjoyed discovering the local craftsmen, in particular the making of wicker baskets and the peeling of capers;) a pity that the convent is closed because we are convinced that Valentina and her love of the island of Tinos would still have taught us a lot of things . Thanks to her and the driver it was great we highly recommend :)

A very authentic visit and a guide, Valentina, passionate about knowledge and very friendly. Far from the hectic atmosphere of Mykonos, Tinos is an island with beautiful landscapes and this day was one of our favorites in the Cyclades.

Sophia was awesome. She knew the history of the Greek islands extremely well. Lunch was great too. Would highly recommend this trip.
