Ancient Greece's Classical Sites - Aug 14 - Aug 22, 2021

Traveler: James N. - Local specialist: Tasos Mylonas

Of course the Parthenon is most memorable and our guide (Eleni), also an archeologist, had an encyclopedic knowledge of Greek history and mythology. I really enjoyed running on the 1896 Olympic Stadium track. Thank you. Cooking class was fabulous. We loved what we cooked and the wine tasting...so much fun. Ilia and Demetri were fantastic. The tour of Delphi and our guide Penny were superb. Brava, as Penny would say. Great hotel and nice swimming in Galaxidi. The tour of Olympia was too quick. Not enough time to explore. The tour of Mycenae was a bit rushed also but Theo was great. So glad we stayed in Nafplio. Seeing Prometheus Bound at Epidauros was a dream come true. It was on our bucket list. Corinth was cool - Eleusis not so much. The last day/night in Vouliagmeni was a nice touch - wonderful dinner.

Hello Jim,
Thank you so much for your kind words and comments!
I have passed on the feedback to each one of your guides and hosts and they are delighted that they helped make this trip enjoyable and memorable for the two of you! It was a great thing that you booked the trip early on so I had the flexibility to book the guides who I thought were the best match for your interests, and I am very happy it paid off.
I have also taken good note that a couple of the tours should be allowed more time, thank you for pointing this out.
I wish you the best!
Tasos
