Our trip was a bit of an issue due to Covid. We had it planned since 2020 and just now completed it. Harris was amazing working through it all with us. I didn't even want to go, but once there, it was incredible. Every hotel stay was perfect! The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and everyone was so kind.

Our trip was a bit of an issue due to Covid. We had it planned since 2020 and just now completed it. Harris was amazing working through it all with us. I didn't even want to go, but once there, it was incredible. Every hotel stay was perfect! The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and everyone was so kind. The guides that we had with our tours were exceptional! Sophia, Matina, Elena and the other two (can't remember their names) were all wonderful. Andreas, who was our guide in Chania for the food tour was also awesome! The only trip I would caution planning for people is the Samaria Gorge hike. We consider ourselves very fit for our age, but we found it to be a bit strenuous. We are glad we completed it, but we would never do it again. Were the views worth it??? Maybe. We have hiked the west in the USA and have seen the same and we didn't have to put near the effort into those hikes!
Nicoletta at the Grotta hotel was the nicest, most generous person. She is the owner and you feel the love the minute you walk into the hotel.
Tinos was our favorite island.
I could go on and on, but honestly, we do not have one complaint. Harris did a spectacular job and had great patience dealing with us throughout the planning stages with Covid.
Kudos to him!

We enjoyed this location versus staying in Oia or Fira. More quiet. They brought our breakfast to our patio each morning. Lovely! Nice location.

Food was delicious, but they gave us entirely too much food. When the main course came, we couldn't really enjoy it. Food was very good. Staff was great!
