What people are saying about Naxos

Fabulous tour!!! So glad we booked it. Nikolas is an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide! Together with Mike, his skilled bus driver, they made us feel safe and comfortable throughout the tour with its many winding roads and their easy banter and Nikolas’ witty jokes!! The bus was spacious and very comfortable and we never had trouble hearing Nikolas on the bus’s intercom or outside (no whispers required.) he made good use of the time spent on the bus with his stories and vast knowledge. This tour was well worth it as we otherwise would never have seen the more remote and other beautiful and breathless spots of Naxos nor have learned so much fascinating history that only a local could know and tell it. All The stops on this tour were interesting and we never felt rushed. Would highly recommend this 8-hour tour to everyone who visits Naxos!!

the tour guide is very friendly and very knowledgeable about the local culture and history. Even though we visited about 6 places but the journey was never felt rushed. This tour could be an epilogue of your subsequent village visits as it serves as an introduction of the iconic spots in each village. all in all, a very recommended tour for those who don't rent a car.

This tour was amazing!! My bf and I did it on our third day in Naxos. We were worried the tour wasn’t going to happen due to it being the off season. But thankfully it did and it did not disappoint! Would really recommend this tour if you are in Naxos especially since the island is so big ! Shout out to our tour guide Nikolas he was the best !! Book itttt

Nikolas was an incredible guide! I learned so much about Naxos island, got to meet really cool humans from all over the world, and spent many hours laughing and enjoying the gorgeous views. Naxos truly is, the best island!

Absolute highlight of our 2 week trip! Other catamaran tours haven’t compared to this one
