Our guide, Zefiros, was there to pick us on time by our hotel. The tour had a good pace and we visited places that we couldn't find on our own. Highly recommended!
We booked this tour for our first day in Naxos and this was a great choice, as it served as a wonderful orientation tour. Dimitra is a great person and guide and we are reallu lucky that met her. Tour ended with dinner at meze meze, great place close to the port.
