We were lucky on day one to shoot the Northern Lights. We never saw them again. The Ice Beach was an amazing experience but the waterfalls and scenery generally was amazing. We were lucky enough to have received a large dumping of fresh snow which made the country spectacular. (more)Viv Gower

The most memorable moment was exploring Poros on foot: great views in the almost uninhabited western part, and climbing up to the top of Poros town and seeing where the locals lived. Also, Hotel Saronis on Agistri was wonderful, especially the breakfasts. The restaurant in front of it was great too. Both very friendly. (more)Debbie Williams

The entire route was memorable between places, orchards, wildflowers Coastal regions. History, architecture, the people and food and wine. (more)Sanjiv Dewan
Hard to pick out high points of this vacation because there were no low points. Even the brief and brutal thunderstorms on two occasions did not dampen the spirits (and only dampened cycling kit for a short while). The theatre at Epidavros was spectacular and the experience of staying in Napflio was memorable. (more)Lucy Watson
Every day presented something new and memorable. The archaeological aspects, notably at Epidaurus, Mycenae, and Argos, lived up to the epic tales that surround them. (more)Greg Liebman

It was lovely and authentic, not mobbed with foreign tourists, we felt we got to meet local people in their setting. Fabulous part of Greece with so much to see and do.
