We just got back from a Sept 2019 ,two-week trip to Greece. Our travel specialist at the company gave me the exact trip that I asked for. He LISTENED!
We wanted archaeology and engineering, that happened almost every day. We wanted to get a taste of the islands. The travel company arranged a day tour of three islands. I wanted a dance class; the company arranged an authentic Greek private dance lesson in a dance studio. We wanted guides some of the time but not all of the time. We had a marvelous PRIVATE Archaeologist Guide to the Athens Acropolis and an equally excellent guide on a neighborhood tour of Athens. We also had a terrific driver for eight days in the middle of our trip, who was extremely knowledgeable on history and mired of other topics. This worked out great because our driver could feed us anecdotal information on the ride and we were free to visit the sites at our own pace. Our driver also introduced us to a variety of Greek food, music and literature as well as several enchanting villages along the way.
I also did not want to be changing hotels every two days and I wanted to pick the hotels. The company was on board with my choices, although admittedly I should have had them decide the hotels based on their knowledge. The company suggested using the city of Nafplion as a base for most of the site visits. Agreed this was hard on our driver (although he never complained about the sometimes-twelve-hour days) but much easier for us!
All in all, it was a jam packed wonderful two-week trip to Greece. We saw almost too much! Maybe next time we will try the “relax on the beach, swim in the sea version!”
