Fantastic experience, wonderful views and highly professional and pleasant tour guide (Trifonas). Coming from relatively flat country of Estonia, we were mesmerised by the crystal clear blue waters and views of mountains. Highly recommended! Jõukohane füüsiline pingutus rikastatud ujumisega nii koopas kui rannas. Kindlasti soovitame!
