Our agent planned a two week trip for our family of three (my husband, myself and our 15 year old daughter) to Athens, Crete, Santorini and Mykonos. From the very beginning of my contact with him, our agent was amazing. He was helpful, knowledgeable and interested in making our trip personal. He succeeded beyond our expectations, planning walking tours, drivers and (most importantly for us) hiring extraordinary tour guides. Our transportation (flight from Athens to Crete, ferries to Santorini and Mykonos, flight from Mykonos to Athens) was flawlessly planned and we were so thankful not to have to hassle with arranging those things on our own. Having drivers waiting at airports and ferry terminals, after long days of touring and traveling, was well worth the expense. Our hotels were gorgeous and the suite our agent procured for us on Santorini literally made me cry it was so unbelievable. Our agent's suggestions of day trips and tours in each of our locations added so much to our trip, and by providing us with drivers and guides we were able to experience much more than we would have been able to on our own. Our guides had tickets in hand, knew ways to get to sites like the Acropolis that allowed us to bypass much of the crowds descending from cruise ships, and continually impressed us with their knowledge and passion about their country's history. It's hard to put a price on your guide knowing the secret to finding an empty women's bathroom at Knossos. I just finished putting together an album of our time in Greece and am once again amazed at how much we managed to do and what an extraordinary trip our agent planned for us. When we have the opportunity to visit Greece again (and we will) I can't wait to get back in touch with our agent and have him plan round #2!
It's hard to decide what was most memorable-- we loved the relative quiet and beauty of the beaches on Crete, the breathtaking beauty of Santorini and the remarkable ruins of Delos near Mykonos.
The only thing I would do differently is to make sure I communicated more clearly about what kind of accommodations we preferred-- we stayed at gorgeous places throughout our trip, but as a family discovered in the course of the trip that we preferred smaller and quieter locations.
