      Definitely recommended Zagori tour
      We had a fabulous day! Giorgios picked my husband and me up with his spacious SUV and took us around Zagori telling us about the history, the geography, the demography, the culture and every subject under the sun that we asked him about lnowledgeably, with wit and good nature. He made his very best and succeded to make the day easy and very enjoyable for me too notwithstanding my walking disability and the rain. We visited villages, stone bridges and marvellous lookouts. Giorgios is an excellent driver too and at all times we felt safe and well cared for. I understand his company offers many kinds of different tours, which in itself, is an excellent reason to come back to this beautiful part of the world.

      Excellent trip
      What a great trip we had today. Giorgos is a competent guide and a very nice person. He is knowledgeable and flexible, so we adjusted the trip to our liking. Giorgos is a person that you instantly feel comfortable with. He is absolutely not just after your pocket. You get the feeling that Giorgos want you to have a great experience first of all. Can only recommend Epirus Adventure.

      A day to remember with Epirus Adventures
      We spent a wonderful day with Epirus Adventures. George our guide is extremely knowledgeable about Ancient Greece and more recent history. He brings it to life with great enthusiasm. Walking in the Acheron River (which, legend had it, flowed to the underworld) was a unique experience in truly stunning scenery. Swimming in the river in crystal clear water was an added bonus. George then took us to Souli where we learned of the history of the brave inhabitants of this mountainous village who struggled against the Ottomans. Here he took us to a charming local restaurant which served delicious local fare. We were also fascinated by the first stop on our trip, Nekromanteion. This is a most wonderful experience and we would highly recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

      A wonderful tour and great adventure.
      This all day tour by George was excellent. It could not have been better. Our party of 6 all agreed that this tour was the best of our 3 week trip. George was very knowledgeable and very friendly. We were all very happy with our experience and would highly recommend this to everyone.

      I couldnt recommend Epirus.Travel and George more for any adventure !
      Would highly recommend Epirus.Travel and this particular tour we went on. We booked this very late which was no bother to Giorgos ( George ) who advised us where and what to do from the start! Less than 10 hours later he was waiting for us at the port for our days adventure to begin! What a day it was! George went out of his way to give us more than we expected from the tour, giving us a complete full days tour of everything and more on the list! He is extremely knoweledgable, great fun to be with, very accommodating, easy going and immediatly made us feel at ease comfortable and relaxed in his hands as he took us on our adventure. Nothing was to much trouble and he ensured we had the best days travel! Sivota, Parga and of course the Acheron River are breathtaking - there was just so much to see, so much to explore from beautiful beaches, sea side coastal towns steeped in history and charm, ancient forests and olive plantations, ruins, fortresses, castles and not forgetting the mythical crysal clear waters of the Archeron springs! I enjoyed every second of the day and it really was the highlight to our weeks holiday in Greece. I would highly recommend doing any trip with George. You will be in the best hands. I look forward to going back to Greece and in particular the Epirus region and will 100% go through Epirus.Travel and do another adventure. I cant wait!

      The best day trip - George made our day
      This was our first time to Zagori. From the time George picked us up from the hotel, going around Vikos gorge, the stone bridges, and Zagori villages, we had the most amazing time. The views, and experiences, and photos.. George made this a perfect day trip.

      Amazing day trip in Zagoria
      We did a 4*4 tour with Jorge in the Vikos area and we loved every second of it. Jorge is kind, knowledgeble, humorous - simply the kind of tour guide you wish to travel with! He answered all of our questions and was very helpful in giving us recommendations for the rest of our trip in Greece. Would definitely take a tour with him again!

      Giorgos (George) was great!
      George picked us up on time in front of our hotel and wisked us away to start our day with him. He was a good driver and we never worried about trouble on the road despitethe fact that we spent much time on difficult mountain passes. We saw many of the stone bridges, including one that has recently collapsed that they were fixing up during our visit. He was also prepared with water for us and his mother had prepared a Greek treat for us as well that was delightful. The route was well planned and he was knowledgeable about what we were seeing. He was also flexible meaning that if we wanted to stop somewhere or not go to a place he would rejig his schedule to accommodate. We saw several villiages from a distance, walked 3 of the stone bridges and viewed 2-3 others. George showed us the natural pools in a canyon that was fun to walk along. We also saw the Vickos Gorge from a viewing point that was spectacular! We ended the day with a traditional Greek meal at a restaurant with a terrific view from the terrace where we ate. Overall it was a great day!

      Oh. My. Wow!
      This tour is the best. Our original plan was to tour the Vikos Gorge and the bridges ourselves. We are so glad we changed our minds; every minute with Epirus Adventures we spent relieved that we popped for the expense and had George take us on his magical tour. In part because our rental car never would have made it up all the roads, but mostly because George was the perfect host. He is effervescent, knowledgeable, doesn't talk too much, doesn't talk too little, gracious, funny, and very kind. On a practical note, the scenery is beyond amazing. It is nice to ride around in a private jeep and enjoy the views without accidentally driving off a cliff. And while the maps didn't make the region look too difficult, it's more complicated than it seems. We would have seen far less had we tried on our own. We were never rushed and George was never annoyed, even when we may have been slightly annoying ("Will you please pull over so I can take a photo?" Repeat.). Especially when you take in to account the length of the tour, the fuel, and the (delicious) lunch, the price is well worth it. Often times smaller companies provide the best service, and this is definitely one of those times.

      A lovely day
      Firstly, let's deal with the price. It seems expensive, but actually it's very good value for money. This is a private tour. You could of course go to the region in a coach, but you would not see half the sights, and you certainly would not be taken to the best ones, the roads are just too narrow, steep and windy. George is an excellent and safe driver, and his car i (Website hidden by Airbnb) that can navigate the smallest and humpiest of stone bridges. There are plenty of extras included in the tour, including lunch. Now, I have been on excursions where they serve you the tiniest amounts of macaroni in tomato sauce. With George, you go to the best of the tavernas in the area, with the best view, the owner tells you what they have, and you order whatever you want and eat the meal with George. Me and George had beef with fresh porcini. Porcini, for goodness sake! My partner had freshly caught river trout and wild greens, and the Greek salad had vegetables from their own garden. I don't know how much it cost because George paid the bill. Anyway, this is not a restaurant review. You can do whatever you want for as long as you want, although it's best to let George guide you, as he grew up in the region. It's not a start at nine, back to your hotel at five type tour. Ours lasted an extra hour, and others have lasted much longer than that. I don't need to describe how wonderful the Vikos Canyon and Zagori region are, because as you are reading this you are already interested in going, but it exceeded my expectations, there were many wow moments, and now it is one of my favourite places in Greece, if not the world. But the best thing about the whole trip is George himself. He is such a happy, enthused, generous, interested, caring person - a really lovely man. He just wants you to gave a good time, and will be as flexible as possible to accommodate this. We felt that we started the day with a driver/guide, and ended the day with a friend.

      Stone bridges of Zagori
      This tour is fantastic if you enjoy nature and its natural elements combined with human made features which blend with the surrounding nature. George, my driver and guide, was very knowledgeable not only about the area but also it’s history. I was shown some breathtaking views, in particular the Vikos Gorge. George not only took me to places in the itinerary but also to a couple of places he thought might be of interest to me. I had a fantastic day, thank you😊

    Epirus Adventures made our trip to Ioanina one to remember! George is a knowledgeable, warm, welcoming, and humorous tour guide! We are so lucky that we found George through a long, confusing Google search. Ioanina is a gorgeous city, but it can be tricky to navigate on your own. And that is why George is a diamond in the rough. He has made close connections with the different artisans and cooks that you will meet on the tour, and for that you will feel fully immersed in the beautiful culture and history of the city. We were so full by the end of the tour and even had leftovers to take home with us. The food stops are incredible, simple, and fresh. The streets you walk along are picturesque. And the company is lively and friendly - you feel like you are being introduced to family. You can't get this experience anywhere else. I guarantee it. If you have a chance, book the tour and help spread the good word about Epirus Adventures. You will be thankful you gave it a try. Thank you George, and best wishes!

    Cheers
