Amalia, our local specialist, planned the most unforgettable honeymoon trip we could have ever asked for. She was attentive to every detail and thoughtful in choosing activities that both my husband and I would enjoy. We wanted a delicate balance between fun excursions and time to relax and explore independently. Amalia did an excellent job of communicating with us to create this perfect itinerary and was flexible in making any changes we requested and answering all the questions we had along the way!

We were fortunate to have 3 weeks in Greece and wanted to experience places and sights that many tourists may sometimes overlook. Upon arriving in Greece we were gifted Ouzo, some delicious Greek mountain tea, and provided with all the documents, tickets, and information we would need for our trip from Amalia's team. We began our time in Athens and soon took an amazing road trip through the mainland to visit places like Nafplio and Olympia. Our next stops were the beautiful islands of Zakynthos and my family's home island of Kefalonia. Amalia created a detailed itinerary for each day of our trip and perfectly coordinated with local businesses and travel companies to ensure our travels between locations were smooth and stress-free.

Our itinerary included incredible suggestions for restaurants, must-see attractions, detailed information, and insightful history of each location. One of the absolute coolest parts of what Amalia put together was that it was all accessible through an app called Vamoos. This app enabled us to get real-time updates on flights, ferries, and direct links to maps and directions needed for our trip.

The excursions picked and booked by Amalia were beyond delightful. Each guide and company member we encountered was courteous, kind, and very knowledgeable. We also enjoyed the balance of private excursions and a few group excursions where we had the pleasure of meeting other people from all over the world. Some of our favorites included a private guided Acropolis tour and horseback riding on the beach.

Each of our hotel accommodations blew us away - we had the most incredible views and were always located near many shops, restaurants, and attractions. Our top hotels included 18 Micon St in Athens, The Gambello Hotel in Nafplio, Hotel Europa in Olympia, and our favorite hotel was The Balcony Hotel in Zakynthos, which came with a panoramic sea-view balcony.

The rental cars we drove during our stay were perfectly sized, brand-new, and from companies with kind and responsive staff members. We always felt that we were their top priority and were thankful to have been met upon arrival in each location and transported in a timely manner to and from the airport or other locations.

Amalia and her team were always available if we had any questions or needed assistance. We are truly thankful to her and the trip she created and came home with a lifetime of memories as newlyweds!
