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

All the sites were interesting. We especially liked Delphi and its museum.

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

Would be best to research the sites in advance.

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

Hard to say. Certainly did not do unnecessary harm to the environment.

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

Definitely a fascinating experience. The guides gave us everything they were supposed to. Only down side was the lack of background on the sites. Would be much better if they had Archaeological certification or at least were able to give more information about the sites.

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

It’s difficult to choose from so many amazing places. Of the ancient sites, Delphi stood out, with good signage on the site itself and just sufficient restoration to allow one to imagine its original magnificence. But with the stunning mountain scenery (and hair-raising roads) of Zagoria, the relaxed charm of Nafplio or the magical, flower strewn mountain setting of Mystras, there are so many places to choose from.

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

This tour does not claim to give in-depth information about the sites it visits – although Angela did give a brief introduction to each site as we drove and Nikos is brilliant with dates. If you like lots of background information, do some research before-hand. Also, advice about local eating places would be helpful.

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

We understand that all the hotels visited were locally owned and managed. We learnt from Angela and Nikos, and from conversations with small business owners, how devastating the country’s financial policies and the impact of conversion to the Euro had affected individuals and jobs. It is also evident from the vast number of unfinished buildings, the prolific graffiti and the streets that the economy is struggling. So we sincerely hope this brave venture to provide work and a living for local people is a success.

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

It was an amazing and thoroughly enjoyable experience, all conducted with relaxed efficiency. We covered a lot of miles but being such a small group allowed us to spend time looking at what really interested us. We enjoyed staying in some of the less touristy places, such as Nafpaktos, and it was great to be able to ask lots of questions. Angela and Nikos were excellent hosts, good traveling companions and went out of their way to make our trip enjoyable. Greece has so much to offer in addition to its beaches – the scenery was spectacular, the roads relatively traffic-free out of the cities, the wild flowers are stunning, the history is awe-inspiring, the food excellent and the people are friendly and welcoming.
