Memorable Greece Holiday Trip - Apr 28 - May 10, 2022

Traveler: Nancy F. - Local specialist: Tasos Mylonas

Working with kimkim, and especially Tasos allowed us to fully experience the culture and beauty of Greece. Tasos listened to what we were interested in doing, curtailed a schedule that fit those interests and made sure that we were happy with the plan.

Working with kimkim, and especially Tasos allowed us to fully experience the culture and beauty of Greece. Tasos listened to what we were interested in doing, curtailed a schedule that fit those interests and made sure that we were happy with the plan. We had one issue while visiting, and it was quickly resolved. The support we received throughout the process was wonderful. No question or request felt bothersome and he guided us through the experience. I was also impressed with the transfers to hotels and excursions. All of the drivers were professional, on time and shared their love of Greece. Lampros was our driver in Athens. He was exceptional! His information was interesting, he was such a gentlemen and went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable. His English was very good. One of our favorite experiences was in Nafplio when we went traveled with Dominic, the tour guide, to Nemea. While visiting the Temple of Zeus, he brought the story alive through his knowledge and passion of that time period. Then we visit wineries and finished at a local organic vinegar producer. Nickos and Maria cooked us a delicious lunch using their vinegars and local foods and vegetables from their garden. I truly appreciate that Tasos planned tours that took us off the touristy path and immersed us in the culture while trip placing us in boutique type hotels that were close to many restaurants and local markets. We hope to use kimkim in the future-Bravo!

Hotel Review

We loved our stay at Home Sweet Home! It truly felt like home due to the owner's personal touch. She was there everyday helping with breakfast and she was helpful answering questions and guiding us to local places to eat. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms were impeccably clean. There was an elevator to help with luggage which was helpful. It was walking distance to the most of the sights in downtown Athens. Wonderful!

Activity Review

The sights that we saw were outstanding and the crew on the Catamaran were exceptional! Great music during the sunset and loved when the captain shared information of the various sights as we came upon them.

Food

I liked that there was a variety.
Transport

We would rather take a taxi back since we drove to an hour to get home. There were 2 large vans and it was confusing upon leaving the catamaran as to which one we were to get on.

Cape Sounion was a beautiful place to see the sun set. We wish we could have brought a blanket and bottle of wine! Lampros made frequent stops allowing us to get out and captures some pictures at scenic spots, while sharing some information about each place. Fantastic!

Alex was great. There was a language barrier but luckily Adam came for the villages tour so that he could support and communicate more clearly. Thank you kimkim for this.
