Great excursion, although the journey from Thessaloniki is quite long at 3 hours. The guide Rita shared a lot of interesting information during the trip. The monasteries and rocks are very impressive and definitely worth seeing. It's a pity that you only visit 2. Please note: access for women only with long skirts or dresses (if you wear trousers, a (wrap) skirt must be worn over them.

One of the most impressive experiences... Despite the long journey there and back... Perfect chauffeur... Perfect guide... And the rest at the tavern... A top restaurant with a perfect T-bone steak... I can only say... A perfect day that leaves nothing to be desired... I've booked several times through this platform and have never been disappointed... Thanks to the entire team...
