Trip to Greece - Jun 6 - Jun 14, 2019
Tasos was great in planning our trip. We got to see everything my grandson wanted to see and more. The guides he booked were great, everyone of them. The driver, Nikos , he booked for the Olympia, Vasse, and Mycenae trip was the most professional diver we could ask for. He was very accommodating to our every need. Very engaging in conversation and went out of his way many times to makes us happy. We felt like we met as strangers but parted as friends. The boat trip with Socrates was special as he cooked on the boat, which was great, and let my grandson steer the boat under his supervision. We had a very nice experience. Dimitri and Maria were also very good in handling our trip when Tasos was off having a baby.
Two things could be improved. The reservation for the retreat in Abeliona got messed up so we had no place to stay Between Maria and Nikos we found a suitable replacement place to stay but required an extra 1.5 hours of driving. Thanks to Maria and especially Nikos for handling this.
Suggestion would be for someone to confirm reservations the day before we arrive so as not to have too many issues. Plus the retreat in Abeliona, appears to be past its prime especially seeing that not a single person or staff was there when we arrived Think twice about booking that again.
Second area for improvement was the Pi Athens hotel. It was ok but not quite what we expected.. located in a run down area of the city and not near enough outlets where needed especially in the bathrooms by the one and only mirror. You can tell they are trying but not quite up to my standards anyway. The staff was excellent and very accommodating but the hotel itself is lacking somewhat. We still had a very good time though.
Thanks to all for their help and making our experience an enjoyable one.
