A Customer Review

The trip was absolutely wonderful. Everything that was listed on the itinerary occurred right on target just as you said it would. The trip was planned with a lot of fore thought for shopping, eating, watching, travelling and good leisure time. We did not feel rushed at all. I wish now that we had left some time for Turkey, but I didn't want to bite off too much and I certainly would not have left anything off our trip. I would like to thank you for attending to our trip as if it were your own. I would be happy to give positive testimonials to anyone that asks for your credibility and ability. We are very happy with the results of our travelling and will get in touch with you when we are in that area again. I would happily return- Greece has so much history and so much to see and do as I am sure Turkey does as well.
