Our driver, Yannis, was fantastic. He drove us safely to all places, arranged all activities on time and in the right sequence so that we could see everything. He is also very knowledgeable and can tell you a lot about history, which really changes your view on those places. He also treated us with traditional Greek cookies. We were impressed by his knowledge, the service provided and we had a great day! Thank you.
