Overall I would highly recommend this agency for future travelers. My planner for the Athens portion assisted me throughout the entire vacation. He was a knowledgeable , educated , friendly and professional individual whom l I enjoyed working with the most. The majority of my trip was smooth and issue free even with all the travel arrangements, flights, boats, and busses.
There were minor complications in Santorini which were addressed quickly and accurately. As someone traveling alone my opinion may be different but I did notice some things among the local culture I feel should be addressed. The Greeks struck me as a very proud , hardworking culture and receive less recognition in the world than they should. If you are traveling to this country during high season please be empathetic that on the islands the local culture works seven days a week without time off through the duration of the season. If you don't always receive a friendly welcome it is probably because they are exhausted.
Again this is coming from a single traveler, Santorini is a couple's Island. Wouldn't recommend going alone . There are places to go and things to do if you're single but it isn't the same as being with a significant other. There were a few times when I was actually uncomfortable being there . Very beautiful island though , I understand why it is somewhere to bring your significant other. Even if you are not into history Akritiri is something you MUST see on the island, ruins that date to 4500 b.c and in relatively good shape.
The most memorable part of my trip was the island of Mykonos . "the party island". It was here I met the most friendly and outgoing locals eager to teach me the language and spend time showing me around. In fact I didn't feel alone at all . Wasn't thrilled with the glass bottom boat tour only because there really wasn't anything to see ,although the onboard bar quickly dissipated any unsatisfied thought of the cruise. The hotel in Athens was very enjoyable and the staff were more than pleasant, hopefully I can return one day .
Knowing what I do now , even though Santorini was very beautiful as a single traveler I would have chosen a different Island and booked some other tours. Otherwise nothing.
