Nota was just wonderful, accomodating, nice, knowledgeable, fun, and is the spitting-image of a former neighbor of mine -- a plus! And she can take great photographs with you! She also linked me up with a potential guide in Santorini. And she gave me a great idea for dinner, which I did. All in all, a marvelous time & she feels like a new friend as well. By all means, book her!! Janet from Arizona

We had a great tour with Nota. She picked us up from the cruise ship terminal when out boat arrived and we visited Olympia and the adjacent museum. Nota kepy us entertained and also jas a wealth of knowledge of the archeological site of Olympia and the region. After visiting Olympia we visited a lovely winery. Nota then took us back to the cruise ship terminal and walked around with us showing us a great museum of ancient greek engineering. I recommend that you do a tour with Nota in Olympia
