The excursion was really amazing, well organized, everything was in time. Our guide was very good and big thanks to our driver she was perfect, because we were passing a very narrow roads in the mountains and sometimes it was really scaring. We saw a very beautiful and unique places. Thanks

It’s a long day picking up all the passengers from the various hotels but a good service. The stop off at local village for refreshments helps break up the the drive which can be very slow despite some amazing backdrops. Once you are there it’s all worth it. Glass clear water!!!! Even in October the weather was 27 degrees Recommend renting an umbrella with dual sun beds for 9 euro as the sun there is hot!!! Return trip via another village with breathtaking views overlooking the seas was excellent. Having the Small winding road blocked by local goats quite an experience. You must do this trip.

we had an amazing day. our driver did a great job navigating the narrow winding roads and made us feel safe. we enjoyed the story time from our guide and learning about a little history of the island. the stops along the route in the morning and afternoon were a bit touristy but we didn't mind as they weren't very busy. we had plenty of time to take in the beauty of the beach before heading back.
