What people are saying about Preveli

We were lucky to have Barbara as our guide. We can only confirm the positive reviews about you. She gave us entertaining, useful information to take with us. Our excellent driver guided us safely through the sometimes winding roads. . The excursion as such is very varied. Bathing shoes are an advantage for the part at the bay of Preveli, because you can walk in the river along the palm forest there. Only criticism for us was; the stay of 2.5 hours we found a bit long. At the tavern recommended by Barbara at the next stop, we had a very tasty meal. The excursion is recommended.

The boat was clean and comfortable, and nicer than the large group boats and I bought my ticket on the bus. the cliffs along the coast were spectacular and we saw goats up on precarious ridges. The river was as the pictures, clean and not too deep so walking to some small falls was easy. Water shoes helpful for it's stony but ok without as some smooth. the restaurant regimented for lunch was local and delicious. family business and work a great view of local mountains from the port. a really worthwhile tour.

Excellent experience, strongly recommeded. The tour guide (Pelagia) and the driver (Stelios) were fantastic and their warmth and hospitality made a fantastic tour even more amazing

The trip was organized very good. Enough time in each location. Everything was on time. Great day tour to see that beautiful area in the south.

Varied, since you leave several places and can therefore go swimming at different beaches & you can see a lot of the island!
