We are exploring several cities in Greece. Some I knew quite a bit about and a few that I knew very little about. Vasilis (Bill) showed us around the town of Nafplio. He gave us the history of the Old Town... the city walls... the Bourtzi Castle... The Palamidi Fortress and so much more. I felt like I had a much better understanding of the town and this helped me enjoy my stay so much more.

Our tour was perfect. Vasilis was at the agreed place on time. He has told profound knowledge of the city in very good English in an entertaining way. It's a shame that we no longer had time for other wonderful experiences such as a bike tour with wine tasting. Super recommended!
