It was a nice, relaxed and varied tour through the quiet mountains to the beach on the south coast with getting to know nature, country and people, the opportunity to buy olive oil, herbs etc. (buying the products we tried was definitely not a must) and Lunch in a tavern.

The safari was everything we hoped for: filled with local, unique experiences and memorable sights. From learning about how olive oil is made and tasting amazing local foods and raki (lots of it...), to exploring secluded areas high in the White Mountains and taking in breathtaking views if vultures flying, the safari was everything that’s advertised and more. Costas was an amazing guide and made our day better with his fun attitude and interesting facts about Greek culture. We had such a great time, couldn’t recommend it more!

We recommend. On the tour from north to south you get to see a lot of the island. Our driver Paul was able to provide a lot of information that made the trip, in addition to the breathtaking landscape, something special. In addition a delicious lunch and the raki, wine and olive oil tasting. All in all a very nice day.
