What people are saying about Plaka, Naxos, Greece

The Naxos Highlights full-day bus tour was amazing - far exceeding all expectations! Tour Guide Nikos and the driver were both exceptional. Nikos is fluent in English and a wealth of information on the island, which he clearly loves. The driver must be complimented on his skills in extreme driving conditions! Only 1 criticism (suggestion for future tours): a longer time should be spent in Apiranthos, where it was too short to do more than have a snack. This could be a lunch break for 1.5 hours at least. Most of us were hungry by then! Time at Apollonas could be shorter, making up for this - most passengers did not swim, so 1 hour there there is adequate. This is the ideal tour for an overall picture of Naxos and to be informed of many facts which one would otherwise be unaware of. One can later return to the village/s of choice by local bus. Visited: Demeter's Temple, Damalas, Apiranthos, Chalkio, Apollonas, Kouros statue, Kitron distillery, pottery workshop, ancient olive oil press.

The tour was great! It was easy to find the meeting spot in the morning, the driver did a tremendous job going around the narrow island roads, and the guide was incredibly informative. The stops on the tour were fantastic- from Demeter's Temple to the olive oil museum to the citron distillery to the towns, everything was truly beautiful and showcased a fascinating aspect of Naxos' history. Loved every minute!
