Inexpensive and interesting trip, self-guided to two contrasting places. Filerimos beautiful and so peaceful, we had one hour there. Valley of the Butterflies is nature at its best - truly special experience. Lots of steps, some quite rough but with good handrails. It takes about 50 minutes to reach the delightful cafe at the top, by which time you will definitely have earned a rest! We are late 60s/early 70s and managed the climb OK - but do take sensible shoes and water. You don’t need a sunhat for the walk, since it’s shaded by trees. We had two hours there.

Very personable and nice driver (Georgies) who speaks German very well and also answers emails. Very pleasant, comfortable and compact Mercedes coach with leather seats and air conditioning. At the butterfly farm, it is essential to put on sturdy shoes and be ready to crawl a lot without a break in order to be able to see everything - preferably without the kids with a lot of drinking and physical activity

The Tour was good, 2 hours in the valley Valley was almost not enough, the air condition was too much! The valley is 5 € each extra, there is an ICE tea for 4 € worth the money, Toilette is 0,50 € at Fileremos there are lots of peacocks, the cloister is worth a visit (10 € each)
