A Customer Review

We are back at home now, and wanted to let you know that overall the trip was a great success. Alice was very responsive and helpful - she really did an amazing job keeping track of everything for us while we were in Greece. We also wanted to thank you for all of your hard work in organizing everything. Please feel free to use us as a reference in the future.We were most pleased with the Marianna Pension in Naplion, the Amalia Hotel in Delphi, and the Porto Fira Suites in Santorini. The transfer arrangements went off perfectly smoothly, and having all the tickets and vouchers was extremely helpful too. A question: do you only make arrangements for Greece and Turkey, or do you work in other countries as well (i.e. Spain, Italy)? Oh yes - the Mykonos Palace Hotel was truly fabulous as is their restaurant Notos. The beach itself at Platis Gialos was also quite wonderful - we hope to return there sometime.
