We had one of best family vacations ever and we cannot thank our agent enough, with this travel company, for her expert advice, guidance and hard work. Our agent spent a tremendous amount of energy organizing our trip. She asked a lot of questions, listened and made recommendations that she thought would make us very happy--and she succeeded beyond our expectations! We toasted to our agent every evening for the lovely day she organized. We added two people to our trip late in the process. Our agent handled it with her typical good humor and earnest desire to make our trip one full of wonderful memories. Our agent was always available to answer questions and I enjoyed her tremendously as a person. I plan to stay in contact with her--she is lovely.
We visited Rhodes, Athens, Santorini, and Crete. Our agent organized a wonderful mixture of activities for the family with a perfect combination of culture, sailing, exploring, shopping and downtime. We had so much fun, so many laughs--two weeks and we were sorry to leave. As we were a family eight, Our agent booked us in lovely apartments and villas. Each location was wonderfully unique and authentic to the island, often full of history. In Rhodes we stayed in an apartment within the medieval walls; Santorini in a beautiful villas overlooking the caldera; and in Crete a sixth generation mansion converted into a hotel. Each accommodation was so thoughtfully ideal for us, thanks to our agent.
Our agent advises, listens, stays within budget, is amazingly attentive, professional and so lovely to work with--she also made me laugh a lot and did a beautiful job. We are very grateful to our agent for arranging our vacation and the making of so many wonderful family memories.
Rhodes, Athens, Santorini, and Crete were all amazing--each in their own way. We wanted to feel like we were staying someplace organic and unique in each island. Our agent selected accommodations that made waking up for the day feel like part of the island experience. In Rhodes, she located us within the walls of the medieval city. It was a fascinating feeling to emerge from our apartment into the tiny cobblestoned streets full of history. In the evening, restaurants and shopping were minutes from our vacation home. Being very proactive, our agent arranged for our additional travelers--I was incredibly grateful. In Santorini, our agent booked us in a gorgeous villa overlooking the caldera. Again, it was a lovely place to wake up in, with stunning views. We enjoyed breakfast by our private pool and a swim before we headed off on an adventure. Our favorite pastime were the sailing trips our agent organized for us. Ready to relax from our day, we loved our evenings by the pool, relaxing with delicious food and cold cappuccino served by the establishment. The chef even loaned us her dog for a few evenings, as we were missing our own pups. In Crete, our agent booked us in a lovely hotel run by the same family for six generations. The hotel and staff were lovely and centrally located in the beautiful Venetian port of Chania. We took a lovely tour of a typical Greek village, homes and visited a local artist. Again, we loved our days on the water, sailing and visiting islands south of the island. The food was amazing. Our guide for the Acropolis was incredible. The whole trip was amazing. We know a lot went into making our vacation so effortlessly pleasurable and we are very grateful to our agent for that--it was perfect!!
We would do very little differently. Perhaps, and we are not sure about this because we LOVED our hotel and location in Chania, we might stay two nights in the southern portion of the island. We loved visiting the beaches down south. To us, it was the stuff of quintessential beaches in the Greek islands, like the pictures on the calendar I bought.
The tour guide in Rhodes was a nice woman, but lacked the imagination and cultural depth to enlighten us in any way. We were a half-hour late, but that was not the issue.
