Angela (Aggeliki) Giannioti

Hi everyone! I am Angela (or as my Greek friends call me, Aggeliki). Let me introduce myself: I am a travel and adventure lover just like you! I work in the travel industry, for a quiet few years now, and I love creating new exciting trips, tours, and above all, experiences for people from all around the world that choose to visit this amazing country called Greece. I am also an Adventure Travel Guide Standard Board Member Representing Greece since 2015.

Born and raised in the US by Greek parents, I have been living in Greece since 1992 and loving it - there is no better place to live! Sun, sea, mountains, rivers, nightlife, food, culture, people, parties, fun, and a safe environment all consist of making Greece the ideal place to live or (if you're not that fortunate), to travel to during your holidays or even for a city break!

I aim to give you a feeling of what Greece has to offer. Guidance, my recommendations on things to see and do during your stay, 'Don't Miss' tips, and plenty of other info to bear in mind before traveling or during your holidays here! Making amazing lifetime experiences for amazing people all over the world that choose Greece for their vacation, is my profession - so, let me help you experience Greece like never before through off-the-beaten-path tours and trips! Your trip will for sure be a memorable one! Get in touch!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I specialize in each and every destination in Greece! Especially the hidden gems and the less mass tourism destinations. But even in the world famous islands, like Mykonos, Santorini and Crete, I know all the unique and authentic places to visit and see along of course with the must see and visit touristic spots. My expertise is providing unique, authentic, memorable experiences. Either you are an outdoor and adventure enthusiast, a food junkey, or a history and culture addict, or you just want to enjoy the alluring Greek blue of the beaches and islands, I've got you covered! I want to provide special moments that will for sure be the highlights of your trip. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I always loved traveling and discovering new places. Especially the hidden gems of each destination! From the moment I remember myself as an adult, I remember getting in my car and heading for road trips! I discovered each and every corner of Greece and met amazing locals along the way! As the years past by I found myself being a travel expert of Greece! Then it hit me! I have to share this knowledge with other people! So, I found a job at a travel agency and quickly scaled my self up to being the director of the incoming travel planning department. After getting the necessary knowledge of running a travel business I decided to establish my own travel company, back in June 2018. Still sharing my local expertise and experience with the same excitement as day one! "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I once went with a group on a trip to Epirus Region. While having a walking tour in Metsovo village a took the group uphill so they can see the narrow streets and houses of the village away from the mass tourism spots. During our walk I turned my head and peaked inside a house. I saw a woman weaving on a loom and stood there and started talking to the group about how the locals use the weaving techniques and how this is part of the local culture. At that point the woman inside the house saw us and invited us inside to see the procedure up close! She showed us how it's done, she talked about how this is part of the local life and the ways they use the woven creations, and eventually sat every person of the group in the loom so they can personally experience the weaving procedure! It was an amazing experience for all of us and the people in the group were so excited and amazed by the hospitality of this local woman. It was the highlight of our trip for sure! "

We did have a nice view of the parthenon from our room so this definitely made up for the space. Also, we ran out of hot water the first night so that was a bummer. Otherwise this hotel was super cute and Aphrodite was a great hostess. Breakfast in the morning was delicious.

* Anastacios our tour guide was very pleasent! He took us through the Acropolis and was very informative. He did go off on a couple tangents and he mentioned how influencers just want to come and take pics so we felt a bit weird asking for a photo. We didn't get a chance to go to the museum. He asked if we still wanted to go but we opted not to since the Acropolis tour took so long.

*Ivis 4 Boutique Hotel - was definitely very fancy and probably the honeymoon stay we were expecting. We didn't have a nice view of the parthenon but otherwise it was very nice. It would have been nice to stay here a couple more nights.

Santorini
* Blue Dolphin was AMAZING. This definitely felt like the honeymoon stay we were hoping for. Since the moment we arrived in Santorini we were welcomed with such hospitality.

* Trail Guide Artemius, was AMAZING. He took us to Oia and took us to the Blue Domes. He asked if we wanted photos and even went as far as to take videos. All along the trail he told us about Santorini and its history. He told us about him and his family. He was such a pleasure!

* The Cruise was so much FUN. George and George were very nice!!

* Luxury Travel - i think this was the name of the driver company who took care of picking us up and dropping us off throughout our stay . Again sooo very nice and very reliable.

I will talk with Anastasis to see what exactly happened and you did not manage to get to the Archaeological Museum. Maybe it was due to the National strike in Greece on that day?

Anyway, thanks again for trusting us with your trip planning. I would love to assist you with your next trip to Greece and show you some more great spots of my country - this time hopefully no strikes will take place! :D

When we hit snags along the way (which weren't many), Angela was right there to revise the itinerary. I'm usually the one to plan our trips, so it was a real treat for me to have someone else take that on and who better than someone who knows the country and can provide more than just a "tourist's" view.

Here is my honest review of Greece and our experience with Kim Kim. I will 1000% use Kim Kim to book my next trip. Angela was fanatic. All of our drivers were on time to take us from one place to the next and all of our tours and ferry tickets were handled in advance which was extremely convenient. More about the drivers below.

The weather was not great for us. Looking back we wish we went in September. There were no crowds which was amazing and we never waited for a restaurant and were wondering the streets without bumping shoulders with other tourists however it was very windy and we needed coats. It certainly didn’t ruin our time but I think a month earlier would have been less crowded but warmer!

Here are the hotel reviews:
Melo- Athens
Marta was awesome. She worked at the reception desk at the hotel. It was in a great location however it’s kind of loud at night if you’re not able to sleep with a lot of noise. It didn’t bother us but worth noting. The room is an odd shape but it worked for the 2 days we were there. It was clean! The shower was cold at night so shower in the morning! Local breakfast was good especially Frogs!
The floor in the bathroom gets really wet when you shower and the tub takes awhile to fill just an fyi

Abasa- Santorini
Tiyana and the owner were so sweet. They provided recommendations for restaurants and kindly drove us into town 1 night and to a winery another day. The room was a really nice size and the water was always hot. Tiyana recommended a restaurant in town and made us reservations and the breakfast at the property was great . The only negatives for me were the location, it was a bit of a hike all uphill into Fira and there weren’t many sidewalks. We made it work because luckily we had some tours and things so we didn’t need a car. The other downside were the flies.

Liana in Naxos
The view was the best and we got free drinks that were really great upon arrival. The downside the room was musky the people were not as friendly the breakfast was terrible the jacuzzi wasn’t hot and overall was our least favorite even though it was right in the beach. We were only here for 2 days so it wasn’t a big deal for us. I think September this would be perfect time to go because you could’ve spent alot of time on the beach and not the room. Plus more places would have been open. The town of Naxos was really great though. We enjoyed visiting and it was quick bus ride into town.

Ivis 4 -Athens
Was our favorite. Sooo clean the food and drinks were both fantastic and the room was modern, functional and clean. The only negative for me was the bed wasn’t super comfy but I could look past that given the other bonuses. The hotel had a gym unlike other hotels. It was in great location was still a little loud but less than Melo. The bartenders and servers were all fantastic. The breakfast was the best!!

Overall the drivers were good and all were on time. I would give all but 2 of them a 10/10. Our first driver was a little lost in Athens so I had to navigate for him. It was a long travel day and he kept doing laps of the city which was getting a little frustrating. The other driver was after our catamaran cruise in santorini. He was flying on all the windy roads and changing music and I think he had 2 friends with him during the drive. Everyone else no complaints.

Restaurants / tours
In Athens we went to dopios which was amazing. The popcorn shrimp was fantastic.

We did the Greek mythology tour and our guide Magda was wonderful. She remembered all of our names and was so insightful on the history of the city and mythology.

Santorini we really liked all the coffee/ espresso we had. Do not get smoothies at the hungry donkey though and for dinner we liked kokkalo. The villages tour was great because we got to see a lot of the island. It was probably our least favorite of the 4 we did but we still enjoyed the sightseeing. The catamaran cruise at sunset was awesome but towards the end the water was choppy so if you get seasick just know it’s a long tour but worth it if you don’t mind being on the water!

Naxos was the cutest. I high recommend the taste of Naxos tour. We learned alot of about the island and were able to taste local cheeses, liquor and foods. Our guide George was also wonderful. 10/10 experience.

Thank you to the Kim Kim team for all your help! I would recommend working with Angela to anyone looking to go to Greece! Looking forward to planning our next trip with Kim Kim soon.

Angela did an amazing job. Our trip was highlighted by the wonderful guides there. Helaine was so thorough with a delightful voice and beautiful stories. We started our adventure with the Acropolis and many stories of the mythology surrounding it. We ventured toward Delphi and so much that surrounded. Started one day at a small mountainside farm in Meteora for coffee and sweet spoons, lunched with locals for lamb cooked over coals of an open fire, ended at a family winery. In between there were Monasteries on top of bluffs, a wonder and marvel to see. Churches being restored, icon art being created and some of the history of the Greek people! Athens was wonderful as well, walking the streets and markets, tasting the flavors. Christina was also a delight reading the Greek coffee grounds, and showing us the sights old and new. The street art there was a special walk scattered with updated housing, shops and markets.
Santorini was a magical place, the Mystique was enchanting! Don't miss Mia's Tia next door, its a special drink! The sunsets at Oia and shops were wonderful. We loved cooking and tasting at the winery. An uncovered ancient city and red sand beaches were a highlight as well as, a seaside lunch at the black sand beach. We ended our time at an outdoor show of Greek family Wedding!
Crete was a magical, lovely area and we managed to visit the eastern and western areas with Alexander. Eastern was a special river area with pomegranate and Bay leaf trees. We visited a family olive farm and saw the working of it and tasted the delicious harvest. We enjoyed old monasteries and nunneries with lovely hand made jewelry and beautiful scenery. We saw 13th century monasteries preserved, and ended our day with the most tasteful meal cooked outside over hearth and stone oven! The western area we visited a lovely town being restored
and the valley of the 5 virgins. We hiked and saw ancient Sycamore trees, beautiful gorges and abandoned monasteries, still visited by local people. We ended our day in a local tavern with spring fed waterfalls and fresh trout. Delicious!

Angela helped my wife and I plan the most amazing honeymoon. She was able to direct us to islands that fit exactly what we were looking for. From the very first time we stepped foot in Athens, everything was taken care of for us. Our driver was waiting there for us with our name on a sign. He was prompt for every pick up and very friendly. Our first hotel in Athens was in a great location, right near Plaka. She also booked us on a small group tour that took us around the main sites in Athens. From there, we went to our first island, Milos. Angela suggested this island from our little questionnaire that we filled out on Kim Kim. We were looking for something that was different from your typical islands. It had beautiful beaches, amazing people, and the hotel we stayed in, Eirianna, was delightful and charming. When I was planning this part of the trip, we went back-and-forth about different excursion options, and she was able to find exactly what we were looking. We did a very small group, boat tour and a private food tour of the island. Both of those tours were absolutely amazing and a must do in Milos.
Our last and final stop was in Santorini, again helping us find the perfect small little hotel, with stunning views of the caldera. She helped us not only book a local tour, but also helped us rent a car that was dropped off right outside of our hotel. She coordinated all of our transfers to the airports, ferries, hotels, restaurants, and tours. We literally did not have to think about one thing. That is exactly what we were looking for! She was responsive the entire trip and always checked in to make sure we were having the best time ever. If you were thinking about going to Greece, you must work with Angela. She is responsive, accommodating, easy to work with and prompt. Overall, this was one of the best vacations we have ever been on. I cannot recommend her and Kim Kim enough.

Janne was a great driver and turned out to be a wonderful guide on his own as he got us from our hotel in Athens to Delphi and Meteora and back to Athens. He gave us a nice bit of color along the way.

Nicole gave us a tour of Therassia with lots of local information and history. The tour was a bit of death march up hills and stairs, but we saw wonderful caves, a beautiful church, and tasted local figs and plants along the way and got the triumphal sprig of rosemary when we reached the pinnacle!

The one thing I would recommend is doing the tour of Athens and the Acropolis+museum in two four hour days. Or waiting until you have fully recovered from the jet lag. It was more than a bit of a death march and, by the afternoon at the museum, we all felt it was interesting, but just wanted to lie down.

I highly recommend this kind of tour. It was private, just the three of us, and even though the tour guides have an agenda, which gets in the way of in depth exploration, every moment was orchestrated to give us the highest and most comfortable experience possible (except when marching, but that is easily adjusted for in the future).

I will never go on a tour with a large group after this experience and I will definitely use KimKim again for my next trip.

Sweet Home Boutique Hotel
Athens

This was a great hotel, tucked into a narrow street. It is family-owned and the rooms are comfortable. The breakfasts are a wonderful display of local foods (who knew Nescafe was so good?) and the staff gracious and helpful. The view from the room was surprising. We were on the top floor and when I first looked out, I just saw another building, but a closer look revealed the backside of the Acropolis, just across the way! Wonderful. Plus, there is a gramophone museum in the basement.

This is a lovely retreat with a view of the ocean from the top of a hill. The rooms are generous with a little sink and some dishes as well. Breakfast is served individually and we ended up eating on the courtyard every morning to enjoy the view before the sun got too hot. The foods were amazing and tasty. The coffee press was excellent and the selections were wide and tasty. The pool was nice and we enjoyed it immensely after slogging over the sights. It was a quick walk down the hill to any number of tasty restaurants. The food in Greece was very good. I never had a bad meal there.

I really can't stress enough how much I would recommend Giannis as a tour leader to anyone that likes to have fun even during the boring parts of the trip like driving. We really made a friend for life there.

The mountains and oil trees were amazing and literally everywhere. Delphi was my favorite spot to visit. The ruins were amazing and the view is like none other. The Acropolis and Acropolis museum was also amazing to see in person. The sheer size they used to build stuff at thousands of years ago is astonishing.

I was on the fence about using kimkim as we had never used a travel agency, but they (Angela) did an amazing job and I would highly recommend them. There is nothing that I would change about our trip except maybe make it longer!

Great location, it was 20 mins walk to most major landmarks in Athens and great restaurants. It's on a street with a busy nightlife that last till 2AM and at night you have to walk through some hookah lounges to get to the hotel. So may not be the best option for families with small kids. Great helpful staff. No complaints. Minor gripe is they don't provide hair conditioner. I thought it should be standard in all 3* and above hotels. I had to buy my own. And

Our trip was well planned. She listened to our needs and gave us multiple options, so we felt in control. Thankfully when we thought we were too tired for an experience and contacted her to bail, she convinced us not to drop it. She was right every time. Here are some of the tours we LOVED:
Food Tour on Milos with our guide Michael. As a native, he had loads to share. He also owns a nightclub, Fiki. When we visited, he treated us like gold. Ask for the Spicy Salad - a drink to remember.
Janos was our guide when we sailed and explored Kimilos Island. We appreciated his relaxed style, and the service plus lunch was five-star.
Private sailing on Milos was a true highlight, thanks to the captain, crew and challenging winds. We sailed to coves and caves you couldn't get to otherwise. The crew brought plenty of wine and songs and played guitar as we sailed into the sunset.
If you go to Naxos, TAKE THE DISTILLERY AND OLIVE TASTING TOUR. Promponas Distillery brings more to the table than you will ever anticipate. Third-generation owner, Katerina, is all heart. Get ready for the good stuff.

This hotel was beautiful and we really appreciated having the pool on the hotter days. However, check in took almost an hour as it seemed like the receptionist took the time to verbally list out every single thing we could do on the island. I wouldn't have minded this as much, but we hadn't been given our room key yet and had just gotten off a very long and rough ferry ride, which we explained to them kindly, to try to move the process along. The main reason for this low review though is that on our last night in the hotel, an employee entered our locked room while we were sleeping to remind us of our airport transfer in the morning, even though we (through our travel agency) were the ones who arranged it. This was really inappropriate and honestly put us on edge the rest of the night. The hotel rooms do not have phones so I understand why they didn't call, but entering a guests room is extremely inappropriate and made us feel very unsafe.

14 Reasons Why
Athens

Such a cute and funky little hotel in the heart of Athens! Loved the whole aesthetic of the hotel and our room was spacious and fun! The absolute best part though was the food!!! This hotel is also a brunch place and as hotel guests, you get 20% off their menu. We arrived a little early for check in so decided to get some food while we waited and oh my god. Instagram worthy, healthy, fresh food! And very affordable! The best part??? The breakfast that is included with your hotel is.the.same.breakfast!! So you get very high quality food to start off your day. We ended up sandwhiching our time in Athens around our trips to the islands, so we stayed at a different hotel on the way in and we talked so much about how we wish we had gotten to stay at this place longer. Absolutely loved it!

Tips for future travelers

Its a bit farther from the acropolis than other places but very close to metros, great restaurants and a whole host of other Ancient sites!

Beat the Crowds Acropolis Afternoon Tour
Greece

Loved that this tour was focused on the myths and culture behind the Acropolis and Parthenon, rather than the architecture like all the signs were. Our kind was very friendly and knowledgeable! We ended up going to the Acropolis again on a different day to just take our time walking around but the name "Beat the Crowds" tour is no joke! Great experience!

Escape to theTomato Industrial Museum Bike tour
Santorini

The ride over to the Museum was beautiful! I loved seeing all the beaches and cliffs, and the electric bike made it a very smooth ride! Our Guide was also extremely nice and was very helpful for us getting started with the bikes! That being said I feel like the description of this activity was very misleading. It wasn't really a "tour" per say, more of a "follow the leader to your destination" as we didn't stop anywhere along the route to talk or take pictures of anything. The Tomato Museum was interesting and the tomato juice and paste we got to try were incredible! The activity description said we would get to "Seal our own tomato pulp" which we were so excited for such a great souvenir, especially after tasting everything! However, in reality, you sealed your own *empty* can with a tomato label, which was a bit disappointing. Finally, the activity description said on our way back from the Museum we would stop at Vlychada Beach where we would "get to quench your thirst with light refreshments at the beach bar". This is very misleading. We were able to take a few pictures of the beach from where we parked the bikes before heading into the Museum, but then pretty much packed up and left immediately on the return. There was no stopping for refreshments. We went straight back to the starting point. The frustrating part, is the route you take to the museum is FILLED with amazing looking restaurants and beach bars where my husband and I would've LOVED to stop in at, but as soon as we made it back to the starting point, our transport was there to take us back. We did not get to explore or experience any part of the beach, other than riding past it.

More stops for pictures and information, update the description of the activity to be more accurate.

Sea Kayak in Milos
Greece

BEST THING WE DID IN GREECE! Our guides were amazing, so fun and knowledgeable! We went through rock formations, caves, tunnels, absolutely amazing time! They took just enough breaks both on the water and off at different sites for us to be able to keep up! An awesome surprise was that we got GoPros to take all the videos and pictures with that we wanted even underwater, I can't wait to get them back! Truly an amazing family run business as we even got 2 homemade snacks per person from the guides mother (that were AMAZING). I would absolutely do this again and recommend it to everyone I know!

Athens to Meteora day trip by scenic train ride!
Athens

LOVED seeing these beautiful cliffs and monasteries! The pictures we got look like they are straight out of National Geographic. The tour guides were so fun and incredibly knowledgeable, pointing out all of the details we could've wanted, including a fun Game of Thrones photo Point! The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 was that based on the activity description, I wasn't aware the monasteries each had their own entrance fee or that most of them only took cash. There was one monastery we didn't get to go in because there were no atms at the top(and we didn't know to stop closer to the bottom), which was really disappointing because it was one of the biggest ones! We spent the time taking beautiful pictures of the surrounding areas though. The train ride is also a little rough and long but overall a beautiful trip!

-Sarakiniko in the morning - Love that we were able to add this in, the 1.5 hours in the morning was perfect, no crowds, it wasn't too hot, and gave us just the right amount of time to explore, jump, and take pictures
-Milos sailing tour, even with the stop changes we had a lot of fun and we loved the group we were with :D
-The Milos food tour was also fantastic with Giannis and gave us so much insight into the island. ----The Santorini kayak tour was also amazing
-All time classic Santorini tour with Katie (Katy?) was so informative, and we have told everyone about Akatori.

Our 2 least favorite activities honestly have nothing to do with the activity, and more of just our over commitment took away from the experience:
Athens food tour, the tour was great but after the 5 hour walking tour that morning, another 5 hour walking tour a few hours later probably wasn't our best idea (But once again this was on us, the tour was great, we were just a little too tired to enjoy it fully)
Santorini catamaran sunset tour - It was great, but I think we would have enjoyed some more time in Fira or Oia, instead of being on the boat. If we hadn't also done the Kayak tour I think we would have enjoyed this more but we loved the kayak tour more than this one.

Milos was definitely our favorite island and experience as a whole, everywhere we went on the island was a great time from laid back Pollonia, picturesque Plaka, the historic catacombs & theatre, to the variety of beaches, we already want to go back.

All of our hotels & car services were wonderful and made the trip run so smoothly. We will definitely recommend KimKim to all of our friends and family!

Olia Villas & Suites
Imerovigli

This suite was exactly what we were hoping for. We had a two bedroom/two bath suite that included a jacuzzi, a steam room, a mini kitchen, and a pool on the patio that looked out over the caldera. It may not be appropriate for small children, as there were steep stairs going down to the steam room that had no gate enclosure. It is close to small grocery stores and a little lunch/dinner spot with very good souvlaki. Nice restaurants were also nearby. If you want to experience the drama of the caldera and enjoy walking, this is a beautiful hotel.

When we started planning our trip to Greece, it quickly became obvious that we would need some help. while we usually do our own planning and booking for our two trips a year, we knew we had to reach out for assistance. We found KimKim online with a solid number of good reviews and thought we would give them a try. They put us together with Angela who did a wonderful job for us. Not only did she spend an immense amount of time with us in advance going back-and-forth with options and changes to our plan, but she also continued to reach out during the trip to make sure everything was going well. There were numerous ferries involved as we transferred between islands as well as a flight back from Crete to Athens at the end. She always reached out before each of these transfers to make sure we confirmed our seating on the ferries and to see if we needed anything. One of the best features provided by her was the transfers for every time we had to move. Someone picked us up at the airport and took us to our hotel, from our hotel to our ferry, from our ferry to our next hotel, etc. etc. We moved a total of five times over 18 days and the logistics worked out perfectly. I would highly recommend Angela to make your travel arrangements in Greece. She did a wonderful job, and we will reach back out to her when we return for another trip.

Also, a little unusual for us, we elected to book a significant number of tours as we wanted to make sure our time was well spent while we were there. Again, their recommendations for tours were spot on and we had a tremendous time. We saw significantly more than we normally would have if we just relied on our own means to see things. The same can be said about their hotel recommendations. We stayed in predominantly small boutique places with tremendous views and/or locations. We traveled to Athens, Naxos, Santorini and Crete. In the end, Crete turned out to be our favorite place and we spent four days total with their tour operator Alex. We saw almost all of Crete and even hiked the Samaria gorge with him. He went way above and beyond the normal tour guide. Don’t go to Crete without him!

The hotel was located in a quiet part of Athens, yet close enough to Plaka, the oldest and fashionable in Athens. The beds were extremely comfortable as was the bedding.

Cheeses and hams to start, with croissants and other savory breads, freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee and then they gave you a menu for breakfast! So much food and very delicious.

The room contained all modern amenities, although it was lacking in storage for clothing, if you were staying more than a few days. We loved the location and were steps away from tons of restaurants and shops and the old harbors was not too far away.

Because of Covid-19, breakfast was on our patio or in our room and coffee, croissants, cakes and breads came automatically and then we ordered yogurts, omelets, as well as freshly squeezed juice. Only comment is there was not enough space to put out clothing so we dressed from our suitcase.

Best of Ancient & Modern Athens
Greece

Our tour to the Acropolis in Athens was hindered by an heat episode on my part so the trip was reorganized and we spent a good part of the day in the Museum seeing the Parthenon and Acropolis thru Eleni's adept descriptions and commentaries, it was close to actually being there. Eleni made the tour enjoyable and educational. Regrettably we spend so much time in the museum, where it was cool and where there was less concern for my "health", that we missed part of the food tour that we were really looking forward to. That said, Eleni made sure we got our souvlaki and Loukoumades, that was super delicious.

Unexplored Culture of Santorini
Greece

The tour we took in Santorini was a bit of a waste-the Unexplored Culture of Santorini. We went to a tomato factory that is no longer used and we were given a recorded tour thru the factory. Since cherry tomatoes were not in season, there was nothing to see in the fields. Our guide Yannis was full of information as he lived thru the earthquake of 1956 and had many stories and those including the tomato factory that was under a few feet of mud . We then went to the Symposion for the music part of the tour. It was run by a fascinating and talented couple who renovated the property from wine making to music making. They were a fascinating couple but we would have preferred hearing Greek music from our talented host instead of making our own "pan" musical instrument.

East Crete Secrets Off the Beaten Track: Through the Eyes of Locals
Greece

Our eastern Crete tour was the best. Alex was an incredible guide who was so knowledgeable about everything Crete. Our driver was also engaging and full of knowledge about olive trees and all things growing. We went on this tour with 2 other lovely ladies that made the trip that much more interesting. We checked out all different plants growing on the side of the road that were used for cooking or for medicinal uses. Alex took us to a remote restaurant, where mostly locals eat and we had the best meal in our visit to Crete! Everything was prepared in wood burning ovens and they were able to accommodate us as vegetarians, with the most incredible roasted vegetables, stuffed peppers and sautéed herbs and greens from the 6,000 varieties in Crete-they had wood roasted lamb and goat for the carnivores They made their own wines which were part of the meal and delicious, as well as home made cheeses. We stopped at a gorge, where we went thru a flowing stream only to come out to the most amazing view. We have many pictures from this spot. We went to an old monastery that was run by nuns, where they gave us cookies and allowed us to wonder their beautiful and zen spot. There was a small store where the nuns sold things that they made.

Guides, Drivers and Staff
both Alex and Yannis made the tour so very interesting. Once we dropped off the ladies, it was still at least 30min back to hotel but Alex was such an interesting person that he kept us enthralled with his stories and photos as he deep dives and has some wonderful underwater photos.
Transport

Western Crete - Six Senses Mosaic & Venetian Rethymno
Greece

Our last tour with Nicolas and the driver, Yannis was a lot of fun. We visited a super cool herb farm, where they had hundred of jars of herbs, teas and special soaps, as well as gardens where a lot of it was grown. We spent a lot of time choosing soaps and herbs that were so reasonably priced. We had drinks on the veranda before we departed to a beautiful gorge that we could not access due to the last smaller earthquake that cut off easy access. The roads along with way were filled with pink and white flowers with the snow capped mountains in the background. Nicolas took us to a part of Crete where you can see both the Agean and Libyan Seas. We visited Monasteries in both eastern and western Crete that were beautiful as they were historic, We had lunch in tavern that was surrounded by running streams and you can drink the water right from the stream! The lunch as delicious grilled fish, tzatiki and another Greek speciality that we'd never had before that was phenomenal! We also went to a Monastery from where the monks got into soldiers gear to help fight off the German's in WW2. We later visited a monument celebrating their fight.

In 2020 we had planned a two week vacation in Greece, but Covid delayed our plans. Dec 2021 we decided to get started planning again. My wife and I enjoy food, wine and seeing ancient sites so we planned Athens, the ancient town of Akrotiri on Santorini and the island of Crete. A friend of ours worked with Angela and so we asked her to help arrange our tours and transportation to and from the airport.
In Athens, our guide was Eleni and she did a great job in showing us the archeological museum and Plaka. We walked on our own in Plaka and near the Acropolis.
On Santorini, our guide was Yannis who showed took us on a tour of the old towns from Oia all the way to Akritiri. There is great wine in Santorini which comes from grapes which grow in the islands volcanic soil. On our own walked through Oia, Fira and down to the lighthouse at Akrotiti, and we had wine tastings at Aroma Avlis (where we also had an incredible dinner the night before) and Sigalas Winery. We skipped some of the bigger wineries but there are maybe 20 more on Santorini.
On Crete, which is filled with olive groves, Alexander showed us the Eastern part of Crete with a visit to an olive oil factory and we toured as far south as the Libyan sea. Nikolas and our driver Thasos took us on a tour of the western part of Crete from Chania over the mountains to the south overlooking the Libyan sea. On our own we walked through the old towns in Heraklion, Chania and Rethimno.
We rented a car on both Santorini and Crete so the days after the tours we drove to some of our favorite places. The Minoan archeological site in Akriti and the Archeological museum in Chania were among our favorites and should not be missed.
I think guided tours are a great way to get a feel for a place when you have limited time, but you also need time on your own to explore. We had four organized tours which was perfect.

Angela from Greece Adventure Trips organized our trip at short notice (just a few weeks). She was prompt, friendly, and figured everything out. She organized all of our travel within Greece and it went flawlessly.
Our trip started with an evening in Athens where we stayed in the Elektra Metropolis hotel (wow --- great location right in Plaka with great street walks and just 10 mins walk to the Acropolis). That evening, we did a walking tour of the Acropolis with the most amazing guide (Alex --- he is a trained archaeologist and he taught us so much in just two hours, great story teller, friendly and kind -- Alex also gave us great information on what to do during the rest of our Greece trip). I think we should have spent another day in Athens but I had been insistent we should spend most of the trip in the islands. Next time!
The next morning, we took a ferry from Piraeus to Naxos. Very scenic few hours, though very crowded on the ferry because it was the easter week. On Naxos, I think we were there just about at the start of the tourist season, since many places were just opening. Our hotel 18 Grapes was a boutique resort, very laid back and luxurious. The food from the small resort restaurant was amazing --- especially the sumptious and scrumptious breakfast served with style and personal charm. We took a short taxi ride into the city to walk around, check out the stores and restaurants. On day 2, we rented electric bikes at a great place called Aurelia Bikes and biked around half the island, getting to see some of the beautiful villages in the interior. We got really lucky finding Aurelia Bikes --- they manufacture their own bikes optimized for the region. When unfortunately I got a flat tire a few miles away from the store on the way back, the owner was kind enough to come out in a truck to pick me up.
The next day we took a ferry from Naxos to Santorini. Here, Angela had booked us into the Santo Maris Luxury Suites in Oia. Ultra-fancy resort hotel and just a few minutes walk from the heart of Oia (with the beautiful views, white and blue buildings, shops and restaurants). We hadn't pre-planned this, but because it was right in the midst of easter week, the same evening the citadel of Pyrgos on Santorini had its annual celebration (which is something unique --- tens of thousands of lanterns light up this citadel on a hill) --- we got to go walk around in the midst of it and enjoy the amazing experience. The next day, we did the caldera hike from Oia to Fira (beautiful, picturesque, though in hindsight should have heeded everyone's advice to go from Fira to Oia instead).
Finally, flew out of Santorini, thru Athens, and onward. Every step of the way, things went flawlessly.
Much kudos to Angela for making great default choices for us. She did also suggest various guided activities on the islands but we decided against because we just wanted to chill and do stuff on our own. Also, our party had two vegans and two vegetarians, so we weren't entirely sure a planned culinary tour or wine-and-cheese tour would work out so well for us. But for most families or groups, that would be an added plus.
In hindsight, I think I'd have added a day in Athens. The ferry has different ticket options and I think if I'd known that, I might have picked a ticket option with more of a view). I think I'd have been a bit more prepared for how touristy Santorini is (Naxos is so laid back in comparison). But those are just minor details that would have have added at most a bit more icing to our amazing Greek vacation cake.

They are truly animators and Greek Ambassadors. They treated us as friends rather than clients, Their first concern was that we had a good time.
