Our travel agent, was awesome! She greeted at the airport with a very detailed itinerary and a cell phone for our use 24/7 if we needed anything from her. The times we did call her, her response was immediate as was her ability to clear up any issues or concerns.
The trip was excellent. The hotels were excellent and just what we wanted. Our transportation from Island to Island was excellent all of our drivers were prompt and informative. The tour guides were outstanding. Excellent recommendations for restaurants and places to visit.
We did not care for the bus tours, just not our thing. The food was not good on the bus tours. Because there were so many people on the bus, it was difficult to hear the tour guide when she spoke. We have been on tours where headsets were used for large groups, this would be highly recommended.
We especially liked the hotel apartment we stayed in at Hersonissos. The family that ran the hotel was awesome, extremely friendly and welcoming. The food was outstanding!
We loved Crete! The people were so welcoming in Crete. It was less tourist filled and felt more laid back. Both Hersonissos and Chania were very relaxing and enjoyable. We had an excellent tour guide for Knossos Palace, we really enjoyed our time at the olive oil and vineyard tour.
Meteora was unbelievable! The tour guide at the Acropolis museum and Acropolis itself was outstanding. Santorini was very beautiful and relaxing, we were treated like VIP's by the boutique hotel and given a chance to see the sunset on their private sister hotel's balcony. The catamaran bbq tour was awesome!
No bus tour, the prearranged places to eat had terrible food compared to what we had anywhere else in Greece.
We would probably rent a car, instead, to tour other cities outside of Athens. The hotel in Mykonos was a very cookie cutter type and we would have preferred to be at a hotel on a quieter beach instead. We visited a beach hotel in Ornos and spent a day on their beach, it was excellent.
I would have spent more time in Crete. Santorini was beautiful and a memory I will never forget, but one time is sufficient and I probably would not go back. So many more places we would have liked to see in Mainland Greece outside of Athens but no time so will definately have to go back to visit Olympus, Thessaloniki, Corinth & Sparta and MORE islands.
TRAVEL COMPANY COMMENTS:
I highly value your review, thank you very much! I am so sorry you did not enjoy the group activity; it was the reason I strongly recommended the private mainland tour, as after 10 days of private tours with our excellent guides, no group tour no matter how good can meet the same quality of experience.
I understand that the budget plays a role, in your future trip to Greece that I hope you I will have the honor to plan for you, I will insist more in a private tour with one of our knowledgeable private drivers.
Thank you for using our office and Zicasso for your vacation.
