What people are saying about Nafplio

Our guide was very charming and informative. Usually, the tour apparently includes a short boat trip, which we couldn't do on that day, which was a shame, or cheese tastings which we'd done on a food tour the previous day! So we sampled Greek coffee instead.

This was an excellent trip with an excellent driver
