The tour with Nektarios was great. He asks what you would like to see and then adjusts the route. He made great suggestions for the tour and it was absolutely worth it. He could tell me a lot about the story. It was super interesting. You could also ask any questions that he was able to answer very well. It was a great day and I would book a tour there again at any time.

We had a wonderful, varied day. The guide spoke perfect German. We got a lot of background information about the country and its people. We were always free to choose what we wanted to do next. Picking up on Sithonia wasn't a problem either, the route was simply adjusted. For us a perfect vacation day. Absolutely to be recommended.

It was a great day with Nectarios. He told stories and talked about Greek history on the way. We visited charming villages, special places, buildings on the way. Had a delicious coffee and lunch on the tour. Time was running with him - wish would kept this day longer! We enjoyed it very much!!!

Great! Beautiful and comfortable, highly recommend to all (families, couples, small groups of friends).
