We’ll take you from North to South, from mountain villages to beach resorts and show you the many faces of Kos. A visit to the Asclepion – the temple of Hippocrates - will start of your tour, a chance for you to step back in time to the beginning of modern medicine as we know it. In the village of Zia, fantastic photo opportunities await you with the stunning views overlooking our neighboring Greek Islands and across to Turkey.

According to local folklore, by drinking out of these springs you will be rewarded with eternal youth and fertility. Be sure to take some empty bottles with you!
