This was our 3rd trip planned by a Zicasso agency and once again our expectations were either met or exceeded. Our agent worked closely with us to make sure our itinerary was well thought out and paced according to our wishes. Our hotels, perfectly located, gave us an opportunity to easily explore each location by ourselves when we weren’t with a guide. If planning a trip to Greece is on your agenda, we wouldn’t hesitate recommending this agency.
We had many memorable moments on our trip with the following highlights:
Food walking tour with our guide in Athens. We visited all the major markets and ate everything from spanakopita and olives to sliced meats, cheeses and baklava.
Temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounio. A little over an hour’s drive from Athens. A must see if you enjoy beautiful sunsets and an excellent meal waterside.
Cooking class in Naxos with our chef and our guide. We participated with 3 other couples and had more fun than we had expected. Everyone is involved in preparing the food and while it’s being cooked you get a tour of the family farm where everything you’re about to eat is grown. We stuffed tomatoes, peppers and zucchini and rolled grape leaves into delicious tasting dolmades. The chef even served us freshly made rooster soup! Expect being greeted like you’re part of the family coupled with dancing and lots to drink.
Wine tasting and lunch in Santorini at the winery with our guide. Really enjoyed the white wines of Greece everywhere we went but had a couple of good ones here. The wine and food were great but the view from our table was even better!
Akrotiri archaeological site. Amazing site and look back into how people lived thousands of years ago.
Our meal at the restaurant. Overlooking the caldera with exceptional food and a spectacular view of Santorini, this was one of the most romantic meals we’ve ever had.
The Palace of Knossos and the Heraklion Archaeology Museum. A must see if you’re lucky enough to be visiting Crete. Be sure to ask for this lady as your guide. She will make the Minoan world come alive for you. We’ve never enjoyed touring an archaeological site/museum more.
The old town section of Rethymno. Charming cobble stone streets and alleys filled with shops and excellent restaurants. Great place to simply wander around. Beautiful Venetian port and beach.
All our drivers and guides were exceptional. They added a tremendous amount of value added to our experience in Greece. The travel company did a fantastic job of pacing our trip with all the activities we were looking for and enough down time to rest and recoup before beginning our next adventure.
