  • Our family had a fantastic time, I wish I could remember all that I was taught in regard to the wonderful, historic sites we visited. Every detail was taken care of and our guide Nassos was exceptional, a walking encyclopedia. We had a fantastic time with our other travel mates, 13 individuals from all over the globe. The ride, a medium size passenger van was not full, as it was just prior to the busy season, so everyone could stretch out and it was a very comfortable ride. This was our first trip to Greece, we stayed for two weeks and visited Athens and then Mykonos and Santorini and spent the last four days on this tour. We were parents and two grown sons and would have missed so much if we had not also taken this tour. I recommend this tour for those individuals that have the time, you will not regret it.
