Wonderful tour of the Castle and surrounding area before end at the Portara for sunset. On the way through the streets from the castle to the Portara we were able to sample some Raki and homemade lemonade. After the sunset we were able to sample locally made citron. We did this our first evening in Naxos and were given many great suggestions how to spend our next few days.

If you would like a tour that is informative and personable, this is the tour for you. Zeta gave us a great tour through the history of Naxos and its castle/fortress, ending with sunset at the Partara. If you don't have a lot of time in Naxos and want to learn more about the city you have to do this tour!
