Franklin B. «By far one of the best tours I have ever attended Ioannis the tour guide was outstanding and a very easy way with the passengers along with tremendous knowledge of Greek history and places of interest on the Island . The tour was undertake in a private luxury mini coach with air con and cold drinks Highly recommended not one to be missed.»
Shailesh M. «We were in Kos for 3nights 4days as part of our 14 day Greece tour. Our tour in Kos was in the able hands of Loannis, a super guide with vast knowledge of the history & archeology of Kos. Besides our pre planned itinerary, we wanted to visit Nisyros island, which has a unique active Hydrothermal crater with boiling water spots & spewing sulphur gasses which make yellow crystalline formations at the mouth of the vents. The regular tours had not started ,so Loannis arranged truely private tour for four of us! Hats off to Kos private tours our stay in Kos was just superb!!»
Hunley R. «Ioannis was awesome! He took his time, we never felt rushed, we covered a lot of ground, and left with a deep understanding of the history of Kos. Our only disappointment was that we didn't have more days to enroll in the other tours he offered. He took a personal interest in the two of us, and made us feel right at home, and went above and beyond in every way. We highly recommend Ioannis for any tour he offers, and will book with him again on our next Greek holiday. »
