We enjoyed the Naxos highlights tour during our recent stay in the island and I have to say that these people really love what they do. Our driver and our guide were so passionate, happy and ready to answer all of our questions. It is a tour worth doing as you will get a better understanding of the history of Naxos.
This is a highly recommended activity as it includes exploration of some of the most beautiful villages of the island. The olive oil tasting in Eggares was magnificent - thank you for a great day!
We booked this tour via Greeking.me and we did not regret. The mini van was clean and modern, our driver was great but the star was our guide, Eugenie, who was like a walking encyclopedia. We learned so many things and hope to return in Naxos one day.
