The Envy of Social Media: My trip began in Athens, that included an impromptu night out until 7am, a relaxing spa treatment at our hotel, and a 10 course meal at the 2 Michelin starred Spondi. From here, we flew Aegean Air to Mykonos, where we found our only hiccup, as the hotel was clearly behind in their recent renovations and could've used a solid week or two before opening their doors to us. That said, the views were spectacular, and all excursions were fantastic (sunset catamaran is a must!), as well as a day boat tour to private beaches and Dragon's Island. Local tip: Oti Apomeine - roasted piglet on a spitfire. Eat here! From Mykonos, we headed to Santorini, and by far my favorite hotel I have EVER stayed at. This place is a must. The service was nothing short of 5 star with the staff remembering every detail of our preferences. The views were breathtaking, and we enjoyed the donkey ride up the mountain as well as local faves. No view will ever compare to here. We left Santorini for Heraklion, which I must say I would skip in the future - it's a large city, with a legitimate TexMex restaurant, but the hotel selection is more for business than pleasure and the ferry ride over was terrifying as we hit rough water. From Heraklion we did a wine tour at Dourakis Winery - a total highlight. And we ended our trip in seaside Chania Town, while a little touristy, the hotel was another gem. Walk the streets, hit the beach, buy some local art! My agent worked with me to very specific requests for the level of luxury I was after, and having a member of their team greet us in every city kicked off each new adventure. This was a great balance of being on your own schedule, but with the comfort of having a local contact for any issues. Also, having all transports included was SUCH a bonus. Truly, this was dream vacation out of the movies, and the comments from friends back home all expressed their envy. I would 100% recommend this company as well as this trip!! Efcharisto!!
The wonderful locals; the Greeks are incredibly friendly, kind, and excited to show you their GORGEOUS country! The food: freshest seafood you can imagine! The views: words and even pictures will never do it justice. The wine: who knew the Greeks had such phenomenal heavy red wines? The hotels: stunning.
I would only spend one day in Heraklion, or none at all. I would stay in Santorini longer. I would try to hit Mykonos nightlife, but I injured my knee on the plane to Mykonos. And I would hit more beaches. I'd love to hit Corfu and Navagio Beach (Zakynthos)!!
