Now that we've found KimKim, we won't go it alone again. We had the luxury of enjoying our vacation without a care in the world. Angela ensured we were in good hands from when our plane landed to when we returned to the airport 17 days later. Angela checked in on us and sent us important reminders during our trip, so we never missed a beat. Several times we raised our glasses and said, "Yamas Angela!"

Now that we've found KimKim, we won't go it alone again. We had the luxury of enjoying our vacation without a care in the world. Angela ensured we were in good hands from when our plane landed to when we returned to the airport 17 days later. Angela checked in on us and sent us important reminders during our trip, so we never missed a beat. Several times we raised our glasses and said, "Yamas Angela!"
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.

Hotel Reviews

Urban Frame Hotel

Athens

We are giving this five stars for location; they are 6 minutes from everything. That was our running joke anyway because we never had far to walk. The neighborhood is delightful. The staff is helpful. There is coffee available in the room. Breakfast is served at 8 am, so if you have early plans, include a stop at the nearby bakery/ coffee shop before you go.

Tips for future travelers

Be patient when the staff tells you to close all the windows and wait 30 minutes for the air to kick on. It works!

Ostria Hotel

Milos

It lacks a view so we have to give it only 4 stars. The staff is fantastic. The rooms are more spacious than most boutique hotels. I liked that there was space to hang our clothes to dry.

You'll need to walk down a narrow main road to get to town.

Vigla Hotel

Amorgos

Perfect place to stop in the middle of a long trip. You don't need to leave the hotel for a fantastic dinner with a view, poolside drinks, excellent hospitality, laundry service, and rooms with luxury amenities. It's a crazy ride to get there, but you won't get anywhere on Amorgos without such experience. The village is charming. Every meal will fill you up, and still, you'll ask for more.

Taki's Guests

Naxos

It's a family business, and they are eager to please. When it comes to the included breakfast, forget trying to tell them you're full. They firmly believe the way to a customer's heart is through the stomach. The harbor, town, bus stop, and nearby beaches were close by. We wanted for nothing. The online pictures are accurate.

Tips for future travelers

Don't be afraid to ask for anything you need because they are eager to help.

Sweet Home Boutique Hotel

Excellent location. Very welcoming. The best view of the Acropolis.

Tips for future travelers

Take the stairs at least once to get a greater appreciation for the building. Beautiful! Stay on the 4th floor with the view if you can.

Athens Highlights Mythology Tour

Greece

The guide was very informative. You will find yourself standing a lot. It's a large group tour so expect the obvious. We are glad we did it when we first arrived in Athens.

Cape Sounio & The Athens Riviera Sunset Tour

Greece

This was an average tour but might have been better if buildings hadn't been closed or stops missed. Our guide and driver were as interesting as the tour. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center was closed and the mirror pool was not as impressive as the photos. We were not able to get close to Lake Vouliagmeni but did manage to see it from a lookout point. I think we would choose to go there for the day instead of the tour. I don't remember "Enjoy a selection of meze (Greek tapas) and a drink at a seaside tavern" but we did get a fabulous recommendation for one in the city. The sunset was pretty at the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion. Our guide new where to take the money shot.

Full Day Boat Tour Unique Sailing Experience to Agistri Moni Aegina

Greece

As good as it gets for a large group tour. The food and people were good. The island visits touristy and the beaches are not so pristine. Be ready for crushed rock, not sand. My husband loved his first jump in the sea. We had fun.

Milos Food Tour

Greece

If you go to Milos, you must go on this tour. It's a fantastic way to understand the history of this island and appreciate its history. Yes, I am still referring to a food tour. We cooked fish in the sand, ate fresh goat cheese, and ended with island wine. Our tour guide, Micheal, was the bomb. Request Michael if you can, as he is a local and owns a cocktail and wine bar called Fiki. He's an incredible host, as were all the establishments we visited along our tour.

Full Day Sailing Tour Around Milos (Catamaran from Adamas)

Greece

This was one of the biggest unexpected highlights of our trip. I can't believe we almost canceled it due to the winds. The boat was just the right size for the six of us and the 2 person crew. They sailed with the winds and took us to places only small sailboats could go. The waters were crystal clear. We sailed through caves where the water's turned purple. We found white rock cliffs to jump from into the incredible coves. The food was okay but the drink was plenty. It kills me that I can not remember the name of the fabulous woman who served as shipmate and guide because she also entertained us with song. The captain shared his guitar and let us play while we all say. He played a few beautiful songs and sang with our guide. I am so sorry I can not remember their names. You could not ask for a more memorable Greek sailing tour.

Kimolos Tour from Milos

Greece

This was a cool reprieve and a lovely day at an incredible secluded beach. If it's any indication of the beauty, there were a number of $M Private Yachts off the coast, but no cruise ships!!!! We love this island, its history, and the very special community that keeps it alive. Janas (sp) was our guide. He was extra laidback and allowed us to guide our own exploration and ask questions. Its a tiny island worth honoring.

Discover the Secret Amorgos (Kato Meria)

Amorgos

We're giving this a five-star rating only because our guide added the monastery upon request. The tour was not overwhelming, but the guide shared many interesting facts about this sleepy, somewhat untouched island. The island is a diamond in the rough, and we hope it stays that way. We recommend it WITH a stop at the monastery.

We particularly appreciated the tour through the village of Langada. The stop at the bakery at the end was a nice finish. It's not Amazing but recommended if you want to know a little more as you explore.

Following Ariadne’s path in Naxos (Wine, Spirits & Olive Oil Tasting)

Greece

An absolute must. It was only two stops but well worth it. Our driver Spyros was funny. Katerina, the owner of the distillery, was a generous host. We could have spent another hour there but had to leave for the Olive Oil Tasting. We could have passed on the Oil Tasting; it was touristy and deserved three stars.
