we got picked up from our hotel by Thanis ,our tour guide, in a lovely TUI minivan. we drove to pick up the remaining guests then headed off to the mountains to take in the amazing views. Thanis spoke good english and explained the history of the various small villages very well. the ride was a bit bumpy at times but this was to be expected. we saw many animals like cows and goats on our way. we stopped off at a lovely taverna up in the mountains for 20 minutes (this could be shorter, food and beverages were chargeable). we then headed for zia, a lovely village in the mountains, to watch the beautiful sunset whilst having a greek dinner. all drinks are included and you can have as many as you’d like, however second meals are chargeable. the food was lovely and the view was amazing. we were given 30 minutes or so to wander round the shops in the village which was wonderful. we then headed back to kos town to drop off the first guests and Thanis gave us a little exclusive tour of kos town on the way back to our hotel which was an added bonus.
overall it was a really good experience and it was well worth it.
