A Recent Review of this tour

We had an amazing tour of Aegina with Christina. We visited the Temple of Athina and the church of St. Nectarios amongst other things . Christina was very knowledgeable and helped us with the Ferry tickets and cab on the island . She has a great knowledge about the history of Greece and very passionate about it . I will strongly recommend her .
