We had an unforgettable trip!
May 2 - May 21, 2023
Chris did an awesome job planning our trip. He understood clearly what we wanted and helped us understand what we didn’t know we wanted. We didn’t know rental cars could be delivered/picked up at your hotel. GENIUS!!! The local support team was very helpful and comforting. They answered any questions, effortlessly made slight timing changes we wanted, and caught schedule changes (ferry) that we would have missed completely.
Location, Location, Location of a fantastic hotel. The hotel is directly across from the Lighthouse. We were in the superior suite which means our terrace overlooked the entire port and a sunrise view. The patio out our door has a beautiful sunset view. Irene was fantastic taking care of everything. I recommend the bed and breakfast options with the Greek breakfast.
Noble Suites was a fantastic place to start our trip. Our suite had a big picture window with a view of the lit-up Acropolis, which was an incredible sight to see upon arrival.
The view from Orizontes View Hotel was stunning. The hotel itself was nice, but the location and view were the main highlights.
Amymone Suites had a great location in downtown Nafplio, but the hotel itself was not particularly special. It was a little small, but that is to be expected in a downtown location. Overall, it was a good option given the location.
The guided tour of the Acropolis and the food and drink walk around Athens were fantastic. The tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable, quickly adapting to our interests and preferences. It was great having a private tour, as it allowed us to personalize the experience and have more in-depth conversations.
We expected a lunch and olive oil tasting at a farm, but it turned out to be at a campsite. We only got to taste one olive oil, and there wasn't much of a tour or explanation of the production process. On the bright side, the olive oil we tasted was good enough that we bought some to take home.
The wine tasting and lunch at the winery in Nemea were excellent. The lunch was a delicious three-course meal, and the wine tasting was informative and enjoyable.
The sunset catamaran cruise was amazing. The catamaran, crew, and other guests were all great. The food and drinks were excellent, and they even had a barbecue on the boat, serving fresh fish. The weather was perfect, and it was an overall fantastic experience.
