Amazing trip! Much better than planning this route myself through public transportation. Our guide Theo is very knowledgeable and informative. He answered all our questions from archeology to even botanical questions. Very throughout. The trip was smooth. The pace was nice. The wifi didn't work during the trip but that was ok for me. The time we have in Nafpilo is a bit short and would be nice if we can extend it longer. However, we get the chance to see almost everything. Strongly recommended!
