I have never been a big fan of travel agents. In my experience, they always screw something up and I have to try to straighten things out on my own while I'm miles away from home and supposed to be on vacation. Our agent Hilary really did a spectacular job planning our trip to Greece. I contacted her through Zicasso after doing a bunch of research on my own and becoming completely overwhelmed about all the options of places to visit, where to stay, and what to do. She made great recommendations and came up with wonderful suggestions for things to do that never would have occurred to us. (My wife was sold on Hilary when she suggested that the best way for her to spend 3 hours waiting for me at the Athens airport was at the spa at the airport Sofitel!) Every place she sent us was wonderful, all the arrangements were handled perfectly, and everything went exactly as planned. The one minor hiccup we had - with a pickup at the Athens airport - was resolved quickly and professionally. Hilary was always very accessible and responsive. I can't say enough good things about her. We've only been back for a few days, and I've already given her name to several friends for their next trips.
Greece was absolutely beautiful, the people were warm and friendly, and the food was great! Some of the highlights for us were the "off the beaten path" things that Hilary at this travel agency arranged for us - we did a pretty strenuous 5 hour hike down a mountain and along a dry river bed in Crete, led by a colorful Cretan "mountain man," and we took a beautiful private catamaran sailboat cruise in Santorini. We also spent a day at a magnificent beach on the western coast of Crete called Falasarna.
Make it longer, especially spending more time in western Crete.
