Because we travelled out of season we found it very difficult to access tours locally. I had used Get Your Guide previously so decided to look on their website and found just what we were looking for. We had a shared minibus with just one other couple; the itinerary was exactly as described and our driver Chris was friendly, efficient and informative. We were picked up and dropped off at the front door of our hotel so couldn’t have been more convenient. Really couldn’t fault it.

It was wonderful. We were there last year and booked it twice. The first time the water was unfortunately very turbulent. But the second time it was just us and Marina. It was the best experience we have ever had and we will definitely be back this year. Marina put in an incredible amount of effort and she radiated an incredible amount of serenity and calm. I hope we see and again.

Highly recommend this day trip! The communication from the tour company, our guide Theodora and the selection of local food and wine stops were all excellent. I would do this again in one of the other regions on the island on my next visit.

Great trip to spend a day away from the coast without renting a car. Good wine and great food. Beautiful mountain villages - worth seeing.

Thanks to Theodora, our lovely guide. It couldn’t have been better!
