A Recent Review of this tour

Chantel once again provided a wonderful day for us outdoors in Athens. She organized sea kayaking for us with an expert guide and changed her schedule to make our experience happen based on the current weather/wind conditions. After a nice kayak paddle to a small uninhabited island and back we headed for a short hike to see the sought after endemic saffron producing crocus plants just now blooming. Then a trip to the beautiful and rejuvenating Vouliagmeni Lake. The garrarufa cleaned our feet!
