Forgive me if I'm being a little picky, but the coach picked us up very late from a location about 10 minutes walk from our hotel - the other trip we did managed to pick us up from the hotel.
We almost gave up waiting, especially as we couldn't get through to anyone at the office. Thankfully, we'd already called a couple of days earlier to confirm and were told our pick up was between 10.30-10.40am, not 8am as on the ticket, otherwise we'd definitely have given up long before 11am when the coach finally arrived.
The delay was probably due to four very ignorant passengers firstly making us all wait 15 minutes at the Achilleon Palace, then after waiting another 20 minutes at Paleokastritsa we set off without them. Somehow they were on the coach after our next stop at Bella Vista as the coach driver had undoubtedly gone back to try to find them. I was very ashamed to be the same nationality (British), especially as everyone else managed to get back on time even though for many, their first language wasn't English.
Unfortunately, waiting at the gates of the Mon Repos palace set off my hayfever, which got gradually worse all day, so it was a relief to get back to the hotel to be honest.
That said, it was an incredibly hot day (nearly 40C) and our guide did his best under the circumstances, although he got off while we were in the north of the island, making the last part basically dropping people off as the driver didn't speak much English. To finish with a good point, he was an excellent driver, navigating small roads and hairpin bends very well.
I appeared to be lumped into a tour group that was mostly from the hotels in the northern part of the island. I was the last pickup at around 11:00, so I never got the tour of the Old Town since they did that section on their way to pick me up. The guide was good, the bus driver very capable, the bus a little dated. The sites are worth seeing, but since the last part of my tour was dropping guests off in the northern hotels, I spent the last part of my tour passing by some rather uninteresting places.
