    The information exchange in planning the tour went very well. The tour information and itinerary provided for the trip was the best and most complete for any tour we have taken. All drivers and tour guides were available at the exact minute scheduled. The guide in Athens, particularly, was excellent and answered all of our many questions as well as being very in tune to our needs. We had several questions for local staff and they responded immediately. In addition, we recommend the Hotel Kouros in Mykonos to anyone. A beautiful well maintained hotel with an excellent staff on all levels.

  • Elizabeth N — November 09, 2017 — Europe

    Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I appreciated the flexibility in catering to elderly travelers. We got so much more out of the trip with a private driver and guide. Worth the money. A memorable success!
