the trip was a lot of fun--as always not enough time. the company did an excellent job for the most part in choice of hotels and tours. the guides were excellent! would like to have avoided such huge crowds. should have arranged such things as the Acropolis on a day without a cruise ship in town.
Meteora was the best because there were fewer tourists. the hike in the woods was wonderful. the landscape gorgeous! we loved our accommodations in Arahova--by far the best lodging. Our guide at the Acroplois was brillliant. Our hotel in Rethymnon was charming and the restaurant excellent.
would not stay at the accommodations in Nafplio--hated that place. would not take the boat ride near Athens--1st class only if you choose to spend the whole day indoors. TOO CROWDED!!! Felt like cattle in a herd--unpleasant. there are some things Greece should do: 1. spread out the tourists to a larger variety of places--there are so many of interest in Greece. this would make it more pleasant for travellers and spread the wealth among Greeks. it would also prevent infrastructure from being overtaxed. 2. take care of abandoned pets. we had a lot of fun in Greece but whenever i remember our trip i will always feel pain and sadness for how badly the animals suffer. it is inhumane and reflects a cruel mentality.
TRAVEL COMPANY COMMENTS:
Thanks very much for taking the time to leave your feedback about your trip to Greece with us. I’m happy to hear that overall you had a lot of fun!
Greece is a very popular destination and it certainly does get crowded when the cruise ships unload passengers, even in Athens, which is a big city. Unfortunately, there was not a day free of cruises while you were in Athens. But I’m glad that our guide helped make your experience at the Acropolis much better.
I’m glad you liked the accommodations we chose for you! Regarding your hotel in Nafplio, it’s certainly not a classic hotel with the full services one would expect but more of a countryside guesthouse, which I understood you preferred. For the day cruise in Athens, I understand how frustrating the crowds must be but it was the best way to see three more islands in the limited time.
On your next trip to Greece, I would be more than happy to propose more off-the-beaten-path destinations within Greece, there are plenty and I really enjoy when our guests can discover the side of Greece unknown to most.
Take care and hope to see you again soon!
