What people are saying about Perissa

We could not make the date planned due to an accident and this company was so kind to let us go the next day. Lily out tour guide was excellent- her knowledge of the history of Thea was very interesting! She handled a couple of unpleasant guests with respect, had the situation under control. Thank you Lily and Niko our driver!!

Lena is absolutely amazing and has a truly beautiful soul. Would do this tour 1000x again if I could have someone as passionate as her guide. Recommend company should probably be paying her more as she is worth her weight in gold and then some. Not enough words in the English dictionary to summarize all the good things to say.
