Private Delphi and Hosios Loukas Monastery - Great Lunch and Drinks Included
"My husband and I feel so thankful to have booked this tour because Nikos was the most wonderful guide. From the very start he was courteous, professional, so knowledgeable and incredibly accommodating. Shortly after I booked, Nikos reached out to me to talk about pick up/transfer details on the day of the tour. He was even kind enough to drop us off at Piraeus port so that we could make our ferry to Hydra the same afternoon. He treated us to a wonderful lunch in the town of Distomo (it was actually one of the most memorable meals we had in Greece!). We felt like we were in the best hands with Nikos. If you are deciding between a group tour and a private tour, we believe it was 100% worth it to spend a bit more and go with the private tour. Efcharisto Nikos!"..."

Overnight on Mykonos Island from Athens
"A very good trip to take, well run. There was a guide who assisted you at every point of passage and the Greek ferries are well run and clean. We selected the four star option, the hotel was a very nice one named the Pelican Bay Art. The room was beautiful with a balcony. The view was OK, nice but with only a glimpse of the ocean and the rest was of the hills and countryside. The hotel's restaurant and pool were perfect for a lunch and later a swim after a day at the beach. The hotel's restaurant food is very good, and there is a fantastic seafood restaurant named Nikos Gallop just a short walk up the road. Highly recommended, the restaurant is off-of the touristic path. The Old Port of Mykonos is beautiful though some spots touristy, but well done in any case."..."
