Antonis was very prompt to answer any questions that we had before the trip and during our stay in Greece. All the arrangements were made keeping in mind our requests and interests. We came back very happy and would gladly recommend him.
Antonis was prompt in his response and was quick to help when we encountered a small glitch during the trip. We enjoyed our Athens stay and the tour to Delphi, Epidaurus, Olympia, and Meteora. Santorini was a disappointment; we did not like the hotel, which was barely operational. We enjoyed staying at the Athenian Callirhoe, which was conveniently located near the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum and Plaka. We thus found the Athens half-day tour redundant and felt that we had wasted time waiting for the tour to start.Read More Read More Less
Our hotel in Athens was unsatisfactory. This hotel caters to tour groups. Every morning at breakfast it is a fight to find a place to sit. During my first stay of several nights, my room was tiny and unsatisfactory. The staff, on the other hand, were good and responded well to my requests to improve the room.
In Crete our hotel is excellent.
My drivers were all good.
The trip was utterly wonderful. We asked for knowledgeable guides and all had advanced degrees. An education every day. Affordable too.
Antonis was amazing. He worked with me to develop a perfect trip for my family! He exceeded my expectations. Each experience that he arranged for us was superb and tailored to our needs and likes.
Everything was easy and smooth. I can't wait to work with him again.
