Overwhelmingly....YES!

By: KAW


Reviewed on: 20 Jun 2018

We realize our trip was only as enjoyable as the many layers of details set up prior to our departure. We had many many transfers on our recent family trip to Greece and every driver was on time, friendly, professional in dress and demeanor, and proficient in English. Our local guides were knowledgeable and informative....and willing to tailor our excursions to our personal interests and time line. We could not have been happier with our hotel selections. Our Villa in Naxos was a dream come-true in every-way. Beautiful secure, well maintained Villa and surrounding grounds. The location provided privacy and proximity to activities, and restaurants with a staff (that became like family) on site-24/7. A overwhelmingly positive experience!!
