Once I planned the trip I forwarded the information to Kimkim. From that point forward they chose the planned route based on my request. They picked the route along with, driver service and hotel options along the route. The travel route was chosen to minimize travel time and maximize exploration time. Our trip included visiting multiple historic sites. The Acropolis in Athens, Apollo in Delphi, Olympia, Nafplio and the island of Crete, where we visited Knossos palace and did a foodie tour in Chania. All of our guides were wonderful. My one complaint would be that we never knew what our guides name was until we meet up and at times it was really just by accident that we connected. Either we approached individuals to see if they were our guide or they approached us. Our driver service was great. The drivers picked us up at the given times and we were given advanced notice of any changes. I will definitely use this company again without hesitation. Thank you

Hotel Review
Kalimera Archanes Village

This cottage was so cute , comfortable and relaxing. Michael, the owner was more than accommodating. Maria made us breakfast and Michael arrived every morning with fresh bread and some new and exciting Greek pie to taste . He also recommended restaurants in the area. Thank you Michael and Maria.

The Palace of King Minos and the House of Minotaur
The Palace of King Minos and the House of Minotaur

Greg our guide, was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable that he made the whole tour very interesting . Everything in the museum was excavated from the site. The artifacts are amazing to see. It’s hard to believe that the palace was 5 floors, in places. The place where fact and mythology intersect.
