A Customer Review

I want to thank you for a wonderful trip to Greece. Everything you planned for us worked out great. The transfers, the tour to Delphi, the flights to and from Santorini and the hotels in Athens and Santorini were just what we wanted. Dana Villas was perfect. They even let us stay in the upgraded room all four nights. The Titania Hotel was very nice too. We will not hesitate to promote your services whenever we hear someone is planning a trip to Greece. If you have a supervisor, please let them know how much we appreciated your help in planning our trip. Again, everything was perfect! Thank you so much. P.S. I want to go back!
