Reviews

  • Marialena was a phenomenal tour guide and knew just where to position us for the perfect picture or to keep us in the shade. The food and drinks part is simply to die for and can be reviewed in an entire article on its own as we sampled many different sweet and savoury dishes and local drinks. Highly recommended and such a refreshing experience from start to finish.
