The trip was very well organized, we didn't have to worry about anything on site. We were allowed to decide for ourselves which sights we would like to visit and whether and on which beach we would like to swim. Because the tour on the island was led by a local, we got an impression of the way of life there and learned a lot about the history and sights. So all in all a great excursion that I can recommend to everyone.

for meteora area and monasteries what can I say...its a miracle on it's own..no doubt that is worldwide known and UNESCO heritage....our driver was careful experienced and friendly also the van was super clean and comfy...totally worth it
