Great excursion, although the journey from Thessaloniki is quite long at 3 hours. The guide Rita shared a lot of interesting information during the trip. The monasteries and rocks are very impressive and definitely worth seeing. It's a pity that you only visit 2. Please note: access for women only with long skirts or dresses (if you wear trousers, a (wrap) skirt must be worn over them.

One of the most impressive experiences... Despite the long journey there and back... Perfect chauffeur... Perfect guide... And the rest at the tavern... A top restaurant with a perfect T-bone steak... I can only say... A perfect day that leaves nothing to be desired... I've booked several times through this platform and have never been disappointed... Thanks to the entire team...

A unique moment where we appreciate the beauty of the sunset but also the very good times spent. Everything is well organized with the cup and the fresh fruit, the break for swimming. Thank you for everything ! Highly recommended for this discovery thanks to the show Escape Belle!!
