Nota was an awesome tour guide. We enjoyed our trip to Poseidon's Temple and it amazing views and had a cappuccino in the coffee shop at the bottom of the temple. We then stopped to see the Vouliameni lake and learn about it healing waters. I would totally recommend Nota who is also an experienced Archaelogist to any one who is interested in any of her tours. She is absolutely wonderful.
