This travel agency helped us plan a twelve day vacation in Greece and then assisted with transportation to all destinations and events once we arrived in Greece. We were overall very pleased with their services and had a great, mostly worry-free time in Greece. The agency's reps met us at the airport when we arrived in Greece, arranged for private and group tours (as we preferred), provided transportation to three different destinations in Greece, selected our hotels, allowed us to make our own plans when we preferred, adjusted our plans when we needed to change things and were available for personal consults while we were on our trip. We would use them again for a return trip.
Hard to say. We thoroughly enjoyed Athens, Santorini Island and Rethymno, Crete. One thing we enjoyed because of the personal transportation and tours offered through the agency was the opportunity to talk (in English) with a number of Greeks and get a feeling for their outlooks and their lives. This definitely enriched our travel experience.
Check passport requirements for entry to EU. Although we have taken more than a dozen international trips, we were not aware of the rule requiring passport to have at least 90 days remaining from time of scheduled return. We assumed all we needed was a valid passport. Other than that, which caused us a little delay in leaving U.S., not sure we would change much, except be sure that the hotel in Santorini has as few steps as possible. We are reasonably fit regular walkers in our 60s but we found the steps up and down to our hotel room oppressive after a while.
If we made a second trip to Greece, we might spend more time in rural mainland Greece. We feel like we have "done" Santorini, so would not be inclined to return to it or another similarly commercialized Greek Island. Would be open to other islands and feel like there was more to see and experience in Crete as well.
