Dear friends,

Based on our long experience in preparing excursion programs for Greece, we do not offer dinner included due to the menu being too uniform, which is prepared for groups. Thus, our customers have the opportunity to try more of the delicious Greek dishes - seafood, pork kebab, lamb, stuffed eggplants, zucchini, moussaka... Our tour guides could always direct tourists to where they can eat enough and at good prices!
