    • Hello and Happy New Year!

      My family and I are coming to Naxos May 24-29 2022. We are a family of 7 (5 children ages 13, 11, 11, 8 and 6). We are staying in an Airbnb near Agios Prokopis. We would like to have a day to go inland and see the villages Chalki, Damalas and Philoti as well as hike Mt. Za. We would also like to possibly do some type of cooking/baking with our family. We were planning on not renting a car because they don’t seem to have cars big enough for us. Is there a way to hire a driver for the day?

      One day we would also like to take a cruise around Naxos and go to Rina Cave. We would love for it to be private but are okay if its can’t be.

      Thank you for your help!
