Great trip to Greece

We loved our trip to Greece. Lots of fun activities (really interesting guides, e-bike cycling tour), good hotels and restaurant recommendations. Rebecca was knowledgeable and helpful throughout - and especially when we needed to move all our arrangements back by a few days she reorganised it all in 24 hours. Very impressive.

What was good about our local partners in Greece?

Very responsive, always available Good hotel and restaurant recommendations Perianth hotel in particular was great for location, views, room quality and service. Only drawback is that it is *very* noisy late at night, esp on Saturdays. We had seen this on tripadvisor, and decided to go ahead anyway, but I’d suggest to pre-warn people Good quality guides and activities Really efficient rescheduling dates

What could our local partners in Greece improve on?

Some of the paperwork felt ‘cut and paste’. Large chunks of stuff felt like straight from the guidebook and a bit random/repetitive. Maybe you could streamline it ? Sometimes precise meeting points were not clear. Could you use google maps references maybe ?

What did you think about the guides or drivers on your trip?

George (Athens) - very interesting man, lots of stuff to tell about Athens. However, for our family 4 hours was probably too long - 3 would have been fine. Also would have been better with a coffee break built in halfway round at a nice cafe - we asked to stop, but later than we’d have liked and the location was nothing special, just where we happened to be. Anastasia (acropolis) - super interesting. Only problem was over scheduling. - not her fault, but 3 hours of Acropolis after 4 hours of Athens was a bit too much. To her credit, we cut back the walk through Plaka, which was the right choice Dimos ( cycling) - really nice guy. Great fun all round. Excellent bikes. Christina (Peloponnese) - really nice. Great storytelling approach. Fascinating locations.

What advice would you give to other travellers planning a trip to Greece?

Bluefish - very nice, but expensive and a little pushy Long walk behind Grand Sarai hotel down to Karathona beach - a real highlight. Nafplio Old town restaurants - Bounos. Excellent fish. Also ISTI (new Italian next door) great. And across the bay Valsamis fish restaurant was great

What was the most memorable part of your trip?

Breakfast on the balcony looking at the Parthenon.
