Great English speaking guide interesting information about the island and what we saw Lovely to have two hours stop at the northernmost village for lunch and look at village caves great. Coach comfortable. Plenty of toilet stops. We were so glad to have been on the winding narrow mountain roads with an extremely good coach driver instead of driving ourselves.

Perfect day to Paxos/Antipaxos and caves under the september's sun, sea was hot, very good explains by the speaker, and great vibe on the way back with the DJ on the boat !
