I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
The Laconia coastal bike tour was such a fantastic way to really see the country and feel like you've lived a bit of it... the scent of hot olives and orange blossom greeting us as we meandered through little back roads and dirt tracks we would never have thought of taking if we'd been finding our own route...

Would highly recommend, this was our eleventh biking trip around Europe, we go same time each year, the first week in May, the group (seven mates) have rated this in the top three. (more)martin mitchell

Cycling through quiet countryside and seeing rural life, miles of apple, orange and olive trees, sheep and goats grazing, beehives everywhere, wild flowers, birds, lots of opportunities for sitting and drawing or dreaming. (more)Fiona Eccles

A few things to consider:

The trip as a whole was memorable: well organized and all the expectations were met! Traveling around the lake with the good guide and the nice boat trip to

The vacation had a 'local' feel and it gave me a nice experience to talk to the local... (more)Wilco Veldhuizen

Excellent vacation, we enjoyed it all - highlights were Meteora, where we did a hike to view the monasteries and walking in the Vikos Gorge, stunning, our photos don't capture the majesty of it all. (more)Penny Thomson

Beautifully restored house in Portaria where I stayed.
A little bit too long. A week would have been enough. 2 days in Athens. Two days in seeing Delphi and Meteora and three in Portaria. (more)Julie Griffiths
