Our travel agent, Ina, did an amazing job recommending places she felt my partner and I would enjoy. She was exceptional in modifying the plan based off of our comments and genuinely made everything incredibly easy. We ended up going to Athens, Naxos, and Santorini, with Naxos being our favorite! At first, we had reservations about Naxos as most people tend to go to Mykonos, but Naxos was perfect for what we had asked for: calm, traditional, and the most beautiful water I’ve ever seen in my life. We could not be more pleased and we’ll have memories to last for a lifetime!
The hotel was beautiful and the location made it easily walkable to restaurants. The only downfall was that they pushed 2 twin beds together and they split apart multiple times.
Our travel guide did a great job explaining the history. My fiancé is a history lover and had a lot of questions that the guide was more than happy to answer! And he genuinely seemed to really appreciate them, haha. The guide had a great pace and gave us time to walk around after explaining the history for photos.
Our guides, Akis and George, were absolutely amazing! They were incredibly friendly and fun, while remaining professional and gave us all a great experience! I expected the food to be mediocre, but it was actually AMAZING and one of my favorite meals during our entire 9-day Greece trip. The location of the sites were great and they briefly explained the history of the locations, one of which was a place where if you put clay from the rocks on your face…your skin doesn’t age ;) you know I slapped that on, ha! Plus we had plenty of time at each spot and did not feel rushed at all. I will say the water was a bit chilly…but definitely worth while!
Our guide was great! We stopped at 3 different locations and we had plenty of time at each spot. The guide did a great job explaining the history of the volcano as well. The men who worked on the boat, especially the main guy were a hoot and he even helped me with my wound after I tripped on the top of the volcano, ha! I expected the food to be mediocre, but it was absolutely amazing and I even went up for seconds! We apparently went on a very windy day which we didn’t realize because the crew did such a great job, it was only rough for about 20ish minutes and even then it wasn’t bad. The crew did a great job safety wise and even provided us with blankets as it got a bit chilly after the sunset.
