We were first timers...never used Zicasso, never heard of this travel agency, never have been to Greece and definitely never Island hopped and our first experience was amazing!
We decided to take our two teenage boys to Greece before the oldest heads off to College and life gets too busy for them to want to vacation with their parents. ;) I chatted with our travel planner prior to booking the vacation so she could get a better sense of what our family was like and what our interests are. After that call she provided us with Itinerary that seemed perfect for us...it was a perfect balance of tours, activities and much needed R&R.
Our hotels were spectacular! Every one extremely different. I asked me husband during the trip which one was his favorite and they were all so amazingly different we just couldn't choose. Our Greek Vacation included; Athens, Mykonos, Santorini and Chania (an absolute MUST).
The phrase, "you need a vacation from your vacation" definitely did not apply here...we came home relaxed and refreshed and already thinking about where we want her to take us next!
Thanks again Zicasso and to our travel agency!!!
The catamaran in Santorini was so fun and the food on the boat was outstanding. It happened to be my son's 18th birthday that day and somehow they knew about it and had a cake with candles! :)
Chania is the most beautiful place I have ever seen, well, other than the sunsets in Santorini and Elia Beach in Mykonos...
Our guide in Athens was fantastic. She detoured because we had two starving children that were getting crabby with all the walking...took us to a great gyro shop!
Dune bugging in Chania was pretty cool even though I didn't go...my kids said it was awesome.
Now experiencing it I would do a few things differently.
1. We took a high speed ferry from Santorini to Crete and then drove to Chania. We were on the later ferry so our 2hr transfer to Chania by car was in the dark. Not being a back seat car person I found the ride to be unsettling and would have preferred to take a flight right into Chania.
2. I read lots of places online that ATV's are super fun on the Islands. I promised the kids we would get some and then got there and quickly realized that it wasn't a good idea. There are a lot of accidents that involve ATV's on both Mykonos and Santorini. My kids were disappointed but understood...I guess it comes down to comfort level.
3. We did two nights in Mykonos and four nights in Santorini...I think I would do three and three.
