The booking process was really fast and easy. The pick-up service was convenient. My son and I were picked up by Maria (our guide and driver) on time from our hotel. The minivan was quite roomy for us and two other tourists. Maria was such a wonderful guide. In addition to the amazing monastery, she also took us on a pilgrimage to St. John's cave and to a beautiful mountain site, totally out of our expectation. Everything about the tour was satisfactory, including the lunch and her treats. I would definitely recommend it.

The tour was perfect. Starting from the booking process online that was easy and fully understandable. The timing of pick up and ending was really perfect. The guide (that is also the driver) was amazing. She knew all the details of the places that we visit and also she let us do bonus activities that have been the plus value of the tour. Lunch was good and I definitely recommend the tour and the agency.
