Lovely experience in Greece facilitated by KimKim
Sep 27 - Oct 5, 2023
Our trip had its ups and downs, but overall we enjoyed it very much. The mythology walk of the Acropolis was great; the guide was very knowledgeable and the sights were amazing. We did get off to a rough start though because our Uber dropped us off at the wrong place, so we were late in joining the rest of the group, but the guide was very accommodating and let us join the tour. The tickets to the Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, and Ancient Agora were supposed to be included in the tour, but we had to purchase our own, which wasn't a big deal. The Athens food tour was definitely our favorite. The food we tried was incredible. The guide, Dorella, was very laid back and friendly, and the other people on the tour were nice to talk to. Our cooking class in Naxos was held in a farm and we got to see some of the animals and even feed them. That was a highlight for us. The instructor was very friendly. I do wish the meal we had cooked was a bit more complex though. I felt the one we made - stuffed vegetables - was too easy and basic considering the price of the class. The sailing tour in Milos was absolutely beautiful. The water was gorgeous and we got to see caves once used by pirates, which was really fun. The 2 people running the tour were super nice and knowledgeable about the history of Milos. The ferry to get from Naxos to Milos was a terrible experience though. I wish we would've been told that the ferry to Milos tends to be late. Had we known this, we might've opted for a domestic flight. All of the drivers scheduled by kimkim were great - always on time and considerate. Despite some hiccups, we had a wonderful time and look forward to returning to Greece sometime in the future.
