Overall, we enjoyed our trip tremendously, and look forward to working with you on the next vacation. You did sent us to places that you have obviously been or had personal knowledge and it was pleasant not to deal with any stress or hassles. The transfers and overall organization of the trip was seamless. We had no hassles trying to arrange any of the transfers, as you had planned it all out and organized it nicely for us. I would suggest in the future not to arrange for transfer of the airport as we had to do on the way out (change airports in NY).
We did enjoy our vacation overall. Your hotel selections in Santorini and Mykonos was fabulous. We enjoyed ourselves in Santorini which is breathtaking and Mykonos which is a lot of fun. The best hotel on our trip was in Santorini, with superb service. Santorini was relaxing and felt like home with no pressure. The catamaran trip was quite enjoyable and relaxing with delicious food prepared right on the catamaran. The people were wonderful. We enjoyed the beaches of Mykonos and we are glad that we did not stay in town at Mykonos. It is so much better to stay in the hotels close to the beaches. There are great restaurants close to the hotel. We enjoyed watching the world cup games in many different restaurants in Greece.
We did not enjoy the hotel in Athens. It was cramped and old. Our elevator to the 6th floor was often occupied, slow, and the steps were not easy to take to the 6th floor, although we had to do it a couple of times. We had to walk 15 minutes to another hotel to work out at a very poor facility. We could not get an iron because the hotel did not have any iron to give to the guests. I also want to mention that it was very difficult to convert US dollar to Euro in Athens. I went to 3 different banks, had to produce my passport and pay a commission to convert. This was not the case in Santorini or Mykonos. Most merchants in Greece prefer and some demand cash and dislike credit card transaction, which made it difficult as we did not take a lot of cash with us. We did enjoy the private tour at Athens as Laura is knowledgeable about the history.
