This trip was operated by a Ammon express. We were a group of three people which was really nice and had Dimitris as our amazing tour guide. If you can try to book this tour with him! We drove to the third leg of the peninsula of halkidiki and took a cruise around Mount athos. It was an amazingly beautiful journey and I was lucky enough to see Dolphins on their natural habitat :) Just the trip itself was very relaxing.

It was a fantastic experience. The cruise was great. The guide George provided a fabulous passionate insight into the history associated with the area, both Mount Athos and the whole of the north Greek area. Thank you George for your insight into both distant and modern history of Macedonia and its place in Greece.

The cruise is amazing. After the 2 hour cruise, I did go at a taverna called "Lefteris Tsikoulas & Patrycja Kubacka"(www.pirgos-restaurant.com), the food were excellent.

An amazing trip. Relaxing, no hurry at all. Thanks a lot to our guide Yanis.

Brilliant trip and thank you Helen. Fantastic guide
