It did not have one single highlight -the entire trip was enjoyable. (more)Christine Singer
Seeing a brown bear was the highlight of the vacation but this was definitely the icing on the cake. The friendly people, wonderful mountain scenery, incredible views, amazing walks, butterflies, orchids and peace and quiet made the vacation memorable at all times.

Everything! Although the weather in Karpathos island is a bit dry, it has plenty of resources, olive & almond trees, honey, large variety of herbs, dairy and sea food. Majority of the food is homemade. The clear blue sky and sea, the spring breeze, the cleanliness of the island.
And...how to make the goats as obedient as dogs :)
The people are so friendly which makes me feel like I am one of them. Hotel room is clean, very good service and cooked me good food everyday.... (more)Phyllis Lee
