Nice trip

Quite a nice trip on the island. Through the lake into the mountains. Awakening. To come out on the south side of the island. Back away a nice photo stop. Just a pity it was in German as English. Because you had to choose a language when booking.

Excellent excursion.

I highly recommend this excursion. I received two days before an email for the explanations of the care which were very clear. The guide was very involved and gave us a lot of details. We were able to make the most of every moment. It was a great day.

Great trip, memories made.

Amazing trip with a good guide and comfortable coach. Amazing memories including the privilege of seeing 2 Griffon Vultures in the wild. Lake Kournos was magical and the trip gives you plenty of time to enjoy it. A lovely experience.
