My husband and I found this travel agency on Zicasso and initially had reservations about using a travel agency that we hadn’t heard of that was based outside the U.S. (i.e. time zone, language barrier concerns, etc.). We were planning our honeymoon to Greece and didn’t want to encounter any mishaps during our trip. However, this company far and away exceeded all of our expectations.
Soon after we submitted our online query, we received an immediate response from our agent. He was professional, polite and incredibly knowledgeable about all of the Greek Islands. He provided extensive background on each of the islands we were considering and helped us weigh our options, ultimately creating the perfect honeymoon package for what we were looking for. We visited the islands we wanted, stayed at 5-star hotels and booked memorable tours/activities…all while staying within our budget. In the months leading up to our big trip, our agent was accessible via email and phone, responsive and very informative. He helped book our domestic flights within Greece and made all of our ferry arrangements (even booking us in business class, which was a great surprise!). Before we departed the U.S., he sent us a welcome packet and all of the vouchers we needed for the entire trip.
The trip itself was, in a word, unforgettable! We absolutely loved all 3 of the destinations we visited, as well as every one of the hotels. Each hotel had honeymoon treats waiting for us upon our arrival – fruit baskets, bottles of wine, flowers… it was very romantic. We cannot say enough about the hotels our agent recommended – we never wanted to leave!
The activities that he planned for us – a sunset cruise in Santorini, tour of the ruins at Akrotiri, a winery tour and walking tour of Athens – were each special experiences that we would highly recommend to any travelers. The sunset cruise was on a beautiful, 16-person catamaran with very friendly staff that all spoke English. They cooked a delicious Greek dinner for us and took us to some great spots around the island…before concluding the tour off the coast of Oia with a gorgeous sunset.
We also greatly enjoyed exploring the ancient ruins in Santorini, and our guide who led the wine tour was not only professional and friendly, but he was incredibly knowledgeable about the local grape vineyards, the wine making process and the different varieties of wines we sampled. We cannot express how impressive our Athens tour guide was. He had so much passion for history and absolutely loved sharing with tourists his knowledge about his country/city. He was friendly, professional and very thoughtful – following our walking tour, he took us to an art gallery where he serenaded us with piano music as a honeymoon gift to us!
The logistics throughout our trip were quite impressive. A guide was waiting for us upon arrival at each of our destinations – they had been tracking our flight/ferry arrival times and had clean, luxurious transports to each of our hotels. Everyone spoke fluent English and had excellent recommendations about the local area (restaurants, sites, getting around, etc.).
Our agent helped to arrange a stop at the currency exchange for us before we departed for a remote island (without a bank/ATM)… and was able to secure an extra night’s stay at our hotel when we considered extending our trip for another day. He even called (our driver) to speak with us upon our Sunday evening arrival in Athens to welcome us and check-in to see how our trip was going.
In the end, we were thrilled that we had decided to book our honeymoon with an agency based in Greece that was able to coordinate all of our on-the-ground logistics and last-minute changes. I cannot recommend this company (and especially this agent) enough… I only wish they could help us plan our next trip to Europe!
I think our biggest regret was not spending an extra night in Athens. We would've liked to have had one additional day in Athens to walk around and enjoy the European city life. Everything else on our trip was planned perfectly!
