The driver was very attentive and made the day special. The mini bus was very comfortable with good air conditioning. The group was small and we could reach all the points quickly. We took very good fotos at the viewpoint of Navaggio and the fotos of us that took the driver were excellent! We ate at a nice tavern typical greek food. Unfortunatelly due to the weather conditions we couldn't swim at Navaggio beach, but we had several opportunities to swim in beautiful places afterwards. I would definitely recommend. Amazing views. Tired and happy at the end of the day.

Zakis was a fantastic and safe guide/driver. We had a great time with our 4 yr. old. Thank you!

On the whole a very interesting experience. Worth it.
