  • I couldnt rate this company more highly, they responded quickly to my enquiry giving us lots of options and information, then due to my lateness of booking, they managed to squeeze us into the tour we wished for at the very late minute. The tour was not specifically for families but our amazing guide did her absolute utmost to ensure that the children were fully entertained and focused so much of the content to appeal to then. I was 100% delighted and would heartily recommend them to anyone who was travelling to Greece ( with or without kids!)

We are all busy parents so we always try our best to accommodate any last minute requests… we will pass your compliments to the guide who seems to have done a fantastic job with your family! Warm regards!
