Christos Gravas, was our wonderful Travel Advisor. From the very outset in planning, he considered our desires for islands to visit, type of accommodations, and interest in side ventures.
Chris was kind, personable, and extremely helpful to us while we took our trip. He was immediately responsive by text or phone with any questions or concerns we had along the way.
Chris was very friendly and welcoming upon our arrival the first day. He had sent us a detailed itinerary for each day of our trip. We received ferry tickets for three different days when we arrived. Chris was also quite helpful in sending our final hotel a link in order to print a hard copy of our airline boarding passes. He arranged drivers to be ready and waiting to transport us to and from each activity and hotel. Each driver was punctual, polite, friendly, and helpful with luggage and knowledge of the area.
Each hotel Chris booked was luxurious and central to interesting sights, beaches, restaurants, and shops. The breakfasts each morning were sumptuous with a lovely, delicious variety of offerings.
We loved the opulent double room with sea front view at Saint Andrea Paros Seaside Resort. The porch was relaxing, the staff couldn’t have been kinder or more hospitable. The huge pool was beautiful!
Cyano Suites Premium Suite with Sea View was absolutely decadent! Two bathrooms and a huge space, also with a lovely porch, overlooking the Temple of Apollo. It was within easy walking distance to The Old Market district and stunningly beautiful beaches. The amazing homemade baked goods and frittatas, fruit yogurts and variety of coffee choices started the day on such a positive note!
We loved our Executive Room Caldera View at Agali House in Santorini. The private patio overlooking the Caldera was stunning. The pool here was a welcome relief from heat. We got our exercise in with the many stairs between the walking path of Firostefani and our hotel door. The hotel was midway between Fira and Imerviglio, so we had an opportunity to hike to both locations. So very scenic!
Katerina, a lovely, knowledgeable and friendly food guide, took us on a fantastic four hour food and drink tour through the Plaka area of Athens! Such fun, and an opportunity to be introduced to the traditional foods, drinks, and snacks that make Greece such an amazing place to visit!
The authentic Greek cooking class and tasting at Anezina Villages in Paros was a fantastic, memorable experience, and not to be missed! The instructor was a lot of fun with a great sense of humor, and tasty recipes. We can’t wait to try them at home.
The Traditional Village and Family Home Cooking in a quaint inland village in Paros was intimate and lovely! The mother/ daughter hosts were warm and very sweet and the meal was great!
We enjoyed our tour of the Moraitis Winery in Paros. We learned a lot about the production and process of Greek wine making. The guide and sommelier taught us so much!
The Santorini Wine Tour was absolutely fabulous, and must be included in your itinerary if visiting this island. Hercules was so entertaining, fun, and quite knowledgeable. The three wineries were great, particularly the last overlooking the Caldera. What a wonderful experience!
The piece de resistance on our final night in Santorini on The Sunset Oia Catamaran cruise was phenomenal! The Delos Boat with three crew was memorable, entertaining and so enjoyable! The native Greek,Alice, was a remarkable cook and created a luscious dinner onboard enjoyed by all.

Our dinner at Aktaion restaurant was absolutely fabulous and right next to hotel. Highly recommend. Take a hike to Imerovigli. Beautiful, scenic hike with many photo opportunities. Book the Santorini Wine Tour to visit three wineries. It was terrific and a lot of fun. The last winery was especially gorgeous. Don’t miss taking the Sunset Oia Catamaran tour. Ask for the Delos Boat. Alice is a native and her cooking onboard was fabulous! We had a blast on this cruise. Everyone was friendly. Unlimited beer and wine, soft drinks, water. Opportunities to snorkel and swim. Such fun!
