Reviews for Peloponnese vacation in Greece, Mani & Laconia


review 13 Oct 2019

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

We saw stunning scenery and beautiful old villages at our own pace. I felt that we avoided tourist traps entirely, and saw the real life of this lovely region. The hotel in the Mani was unique and full of character, but totally modern. We were able to be adventurous and wander through incredible sites, yet our guide made sure that we felt very comfortable and secure. We ate great food in gorgeous, but relaxed settings right on the water's edge.

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

If you appreciate personalized care, great flexibility and a small group, this tour is excellent. We met the tour company owner for dinner the first night, and that proved to be a great orientation to Greece. The Mani is such a beautiful region, with tall mountains coming down to the sea; I really recommend this trip to those who are a bit adventurous and who want to see a part of Greece that's very different from your standard "Greek island vacation".

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

The hotels served lots of local products. We chose restaurants for lunch and dinner that were obviously locally owned, and they served specialties like locally caught fresh fish.

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

The trip was excellent on all levels. The original itinerary was great, and we were able to easily change it around so that we had a "free day" in the middle of the trip to relax at the beach and pool, to loaf and read and explore the natural environment. The guides we had were super: well-organized and they allowed us lots of flexibility. They were wonderful ambassadors for their country: very knowledgeable and friendly people whom we enjoyed getting to know. They made us feel that they would do anything to make our trip special and unforgettable.
