What people are saying about Dodecanese

We enjoyed this trip more than we expected! Maria was a great guide who gave interesting information and the stops on the tour were all great. We could have done without the wine-tasting as it’s clearly just a sales pitch and too quick and rushed to be helpful if you really were interested in buying wine - but it’s not a deal breaker! As well as visiting all the different sites, we were really pleased just to see more of the island, even if just through the coach window.

We personally found the entry into the monastery unnecessary and overpriced. However, we learned so much about the island and its history, the food in the small town was also very tasty and sufficient. Time at Butterfly Valley was very tight with time. Otherwise a very successful and filled day!

This tour was great! Exactly as advertised and Maria was a fantastic guide. She even provided a restaurant recommendation near our BNB that was our favourite restaurant of our stay. Highly recommend!

We had a great tour which was well organised and fun. Lovely walk through the village from the bakery to thw wine tasting and then onto the restaurant for the cooking lesson and lunch.

It was a great tour and we saw a lot. We were picked up by minibus and were a small group. Thanks to Nina our tour guide.
