A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our Best of Kos tour with Ioannis. He is extremely knowledgeable about the island and its rich history and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. We loved the pretty mountain town of Zia (try the home-made lemonade!) and enjoyed the interesting tour of the local winery, as well as the visits to the Askclepieion and Kos town. Thank you Ioannis!
