A Recent Review of this tour

Manos was a great guide - nothing was too much trouble for him. He selected excellent economically priced hotels and recommended some very nice restaurants. We were a bit surprised when our vehicle turned out to be a taxi. But it was an excellent, comfortable Mercedes Benz! Now we tell all our friends about our fantastic 2000km taxi ride. The itinerary was excellent and very appropriate for 5 days. We saw many of Greece's iconic historic sites. All were really amazing. The tour was just great.
