Reviews for Botanical holidays on Karpathos Island, Greece


review 5 Apr 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

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. Their love & passion with the island also inspired me.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Don't forget to put sun screen !

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely will benefit the people there. They want more people to know their island and come for vacations. There's a lot of take away for me too: flowers & herbs, to make pasta, to fish the sea urchin .....Tourists have the responsibility to keep the island clean. There's also volunteers to keep the island at the best. A foundation will be set up shortly for the protection of the island.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It's an unexpectedly wonderful vacation. Unfortunately I cannot stay any longer. There's so many trails I didn't hike.
