We were picked up at the hotel at 3:40 a.m. and had a great experience. Recommended for everyone who likes history and would like to experience and see a lot of new things. We had 2 super nice tour guides who were always on hand and helpful. The tour description is 100% accurate...

Unfortunately 1 star is still too much. The places were really great and adorable but the rest wasn't. I ordered a tour with a German-speaking tour guide, unfortunately we only got it in Russian and English. My companion didn't understand a word and I was busy translating English all day. Since the majority were Russian tourists, 80% of the information was only in Russian. So that we simply did not receive 80% of the information. The drive was also very long. We were picked up at 5:20am. An hour later we stopped for breakfast (pay for it yourself), then drove another 2.5 hours to stop at a shop for religious stuff. Then another 15 minutes to St. Nicholas Church. Then came lunch (incl.), which was no longer warm and tasted bland. Then again about 1 hour drive to Myra town. Then like a half hour drive to the boat tour. After the boat tour, another shop with expensive onix stones and a 3.5-hour drive home.
