Trip was wonderful with a good amount of relaxation on the islands and activities/history. Greece is a beautiful country with amazing scenery and food.
There were a couple of issues that arose but did not deter us from a wonderful itinerary.
The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly, and the hotels chosen were perfectly located.
The tour guide in Athens and Meteora were very good and knowledgeable. And the catamaran and Akrotiri tours in Santorini was amazing. Meteora itself was worth the bus ride and should not be missed by anyone who goes to Greece!
We also took a cable car ride down to the old port in Santorini and a donkey up to the city which was very unusual and memorable.
I would have perhaps extended my travel by a day so that we could spend another day in Athens to do some souvenir shopping and explored the city on our own time.
I think a more personalised service would make the trip perfect - perhaps a meet and greet at each city to explain the tour and give an overview of the city instead of a piece of paper would make it more personal.
There was also some confusion around the Caique tour and we ended up having to change our itinerary, and pay the excess immediately. If we had not rang the number provided on the letter, we would have missed out on the trip completely. Once again, this could have been avoided should there have been a meet and greet when we arrived in the city with a brief overview of what we would be doing.
The ferry to Santorini was an hour late, but we had arrived 30 mins early. Understandably, this was not the fault of the travel agency but the company could have checked the ferry status prior to pick up to move the pick up time to avoid standing in the dark and cold for 1.5 hours.
Lunch to Delphi/Meteora was not provided until 4PM, perhaps a notice in the morning to bring a snack due to a late lunch would have easily avoided this frustration. The bus to Delphi/Meteora was also very small and had no leg room.This can get quite uncomfortable during a 3 hour bus ride.
