We thoroughly enjoyed our Best of Kos tour with Ioannis. He is extremely knowledgeable about the island and its rich history and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. We loved the pretty mountain town of Zia (try the home-made lemonade!) and enjoyed the interesting tour of the local winery, as well as the visits to the Askclepieion and Kos town. Thank you Ioannis!
