    Everything was great due to Galina, the guide. But the company did extremely bad. Nobody had informed us that the guide would have waited us in Santorini, not in Heraklion. We arrived at the port by 7:00 a.m. and found no guide. We did not know what to do for a long time.

    The agency has nice app, which works well with all ordered trips, but a trip to Santorini was not perfect, because the app showed meeting point at a different place, than the very late mail from the agency. There were no precise instructions how to proceed after arriving at Santorini. Once we figured that out, everything was fine. The trip is very demanding especially when hot. But it is a must see destination.

    Crossing aboard a ferry lasting 1: 30/2: 00 very comfortably installed. In Sanmarini, an extraordinary French-speaking guide. You will learn the history of the Islands with a lot of very interesting anecdotes. Magnificent views and splendid architectures. A special thank you to the tour operator because I had to change the day because of the bad weather and it went without any problem.
