the tour guide is very friendly and very knowledgeable about the local culture and history. Even though we visited about 6 places but the journey was never felt rushed. This tour could be an epilogue of your subsequent village visits as it serves as an introduction of the iconic spots in each village. all in all, a very recommended tour for those who don't rent a car.

Great tour with Nicholas to learn about the island and see some sights. Everything was interesting, I just wish we had more time at the pottery workshop and less time at the last stop. There are some nice landscape views as you pass different villages. Definitely not for those with fear of heights as the bus goes mostly on a very narrow mountain road. Bring 6 euro extra- 4 for the entry to the temple and 2 for the tasting of the spirit made locally.
