A Customer Review

We are back in the U.S. after our wonderful trip to Greece. I want to compliment you on the excellent choices you made for our small group. The three hotels were wonderful. The Athens hotel was very simple but the location was perfect! The Naphlion hotel was the absolute high point of the tour! We loved the rooms, the service and the location! The Delphi area hotel was nice because we needed the pool to stay cool in the heat of the region. The two vans worked out very well for us and the rental car was very helpful. They were very accommodating and the cars were in good condition. I appreciate your willingness to offer us so many choices as we decided where to go in Greece and the nice choices you made once we decided. If you need a reference for future clients in the USA I am glad to be of assistance. Thank you, Jodi
