Overview
More
We are a passionate team who has established for the cruisers a new standard for high-quality private shore excursions, with a personal touch, at the best prices. Often people spend long time to find the agency that they have booked with, wasting valuable time. We, however, are the only Tour Operator with its own office opposite the port of Katakolon.

I believe that we had the option to add in a Licensed Tour Guide however, opted not to get one. For the ruins we took about 1.5 hours and about 45 minutes in the museum - we did not visit the modern museum.
