Loved traveling with the guides--they treated us like family. (more)Brynnen Ford
Delphi is extraordinary, as expected. Olympia is a real surprise - much richer than just athletics. Mycenae is beautiful and moving. Lousios Gorge fascinating. (more)Nick Heath

Sailing holiday in the Aegean Sea
Great experience and gave us a good taste of sailing, now ready for some more! (more)Melanie Meurant
The most memorable part of the holiday were the views from ashore and on dry land. The Cyclades are really unique. (more)Lorenza Campana
There were so many highlights it is hard to pick out the best - snorkelling in clear blue waters, visiting deserted beaches, wandering through the streets of ancient villages far away from all the tourists, eating marvellous local food, seeing ancient ruins, sailing under starry skies.... (more)Madeleine Minto
From 458 - 558 excluding flights
Liveaboard diving and sailing holiday in Greece
We could not rate our holiday any higher. All six of us are eager to return. We miss the stories and history learned from Sotiris and Annie, the deliciousness of the local authentic food, the curiosity of learning about a new place and its culuture and the genuineness of the hospitality everywhere. (more)Danielle Romme
I had a really lovely time. (more)Melandee Brown
Excellent...For me it was the opportunity to see some amazing places, both on land and underwater. The night dive on Polygaios with the bioluminescent plankton was mind-blowing, Avatar style! (more)Mathias Bredvei

From 735 excluding flights
Brown bear tracking in Northern Greece
Memorable parts? Seeing a brown bear was the highlight of the holiday 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 holiday memorable at all times. Tips? Be prepared to do plenty of walking over rough and rocky ground, possibly in high temperatures. Enjoy the local people, food, culture and scenery as much as possible. Don't expect to find bears, just... (more)Liz Pitt
From 599 excluding flights
Seaside accommodation in Greece, Antiparos Island
Memorable parts? Breakfast! Soaking up the view of sea and island whilst enjoying the delicious food and contemplating the prospects of the day ahead... Tips? Don't hesitate to book and think of arriving by ferry from Athens, so much better than by plane. Local benefits? Yes definitely. Overall rating? If you love the sea you will love this place. (more)Petrea Middleton
From 60 - 180 per accommodation per night (sleeps 2-5)
Greece self drive holiday, Peloponnese beaches
Memorable parts? The entire 21 day trip was fantastic. Upon the agent's advice we went to the Mani and certainly enjoyed the interesting castle houses, as well as the landscape and uncrowded sightseeing. Also, Nafplio was probably our favorite town with so many interesting sites nearby as well as the beaches and natural beauty. We could have stayed there longer. Driving Greece is the way to go. Get out of Athens and see the small villages especially in the Peloponnese. June was the perfect... (more)Sarah Turner
From 730 - 890 excluding flights
Walking holiday in Greece
The walk in which we ascended Mount Kliosi and the Acropolis of Styra - visiting the 'ancient gate' the cave of ST.Nicholas and the ruins of Castri Armeno - fantastic views of the coast! (more)Glenn Tobin

Memorable parts? The children had the most wonderful time, they were on the go all the time and loved all the new adventures and activities Tips? Dont hesitate - this is worth doing! Local benefits?

It was like going on holiday to a friend's house who takes you to all the best places in the area. (more)Tony Mcleod
Superfabulous...Overall the holiday was very memorable & exciting, however, rafting was the best as we could take even a seven year old. Nafplio was just an amazing place to be (more)Cheryl Suares

From 840 excluding flights
Luxury Greek Island holiday accommodation
A wonderful holiday which far exceeded our expectations. (more)Susan Purnell
The location of the accommodation, our home for the next few weeks was simply stunning. The gardens lovingly tended to by the owners Marilyn and Spero, provide a perfect relaxing haven to unwind. The entrance to our cottage was awash with wisteria and the fragrance of white jasmine filled the air. Spotting a Pine Martin one evening was really exciting for all of us! The place is awash with all kinds of wildlife, green lizards, giant centipedes, and birdlife galore. A very exciting playground for... (more)Alison Brookes Day
Pretty much perfect!.....The tranquility, the love and care in every detail and the warmth and generosity of our hosts. (more)Michelle Aloof
From 2495 - 4950 per week (sleeps 4-6)
Peloponnese family activity holiday in Greece
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. Tripoli is not a tourist destination, which was nice in some ways but we stayed there a little long, the hotel could do with a pool, could be nice to also have a couple of nights elsewhere. (more)Julie Dickerson
Absolutely wonderful. Every day was different, but wonderful. We really enjoyed the scenery, the food, the people and the activities. (more)Angela Terrill
Fantastic holiday. Will certainly go there again. We spend the following week in Creta and enjoyed beaches and diving. Will have to there again to see other Greek wonders, including vineyard and olives trees. (more)Celine Bergeron
From 840 excluding flights
Walking holiday in the West Cyclades, Greece
Excellent...we stayed at a family run guesthouse, ate at local taverns, tried local products, used public transport and walked to get to places. We cleaned up a beach after having a picnic. Our guide in general provided useful information about the local flora and fauna, the culture, economy and environmental issues (more)Xenia Karantani
Very interesting and enjoyable. We're very pleased with the experience. The hiking was great exercise. However, I think the most memorable part will be the good company we had in Annie Antonatou, our guide and host. (more)Deborah Pearson
From 685 - 740 excluding flights

Botanical holidays on Karpathos Island, Greece
Memorable parts? 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

Messinia cycling holiday in Greece
Memorable parts? Visiting Koroni, Methoni and Pylos - beautiful, historic seaside towns. Tips? You need to be pretty fit as there is a lot of uphill cycling! The last two days were fairly easy going as the coastal road was flat, but the first few days were very hilly and one day especially, we cycled up a mountain and down the other side. Local benefits? Cycling is always environmentally friendly and the local people seemed pleased to cater for tourists in what is a very... (more)Alison Whyte
From 735 - 775 excluding flights
Northern Greece wildlife conservation tour
Memorable parts? Going on a walk with the conservationists up the various mountains and then trying out Greek drinks such as their coffee and "Mountain tea" that was made from local plants. Tips? To know what the weather is when they go, so they can decide if they want to be there during hot weather or somewhat cooler. Local benefits? Not directly us being on the trip, however the conservations as a whole are doing really good work preventing the death of bears while still... (more)Ruairi Benn
From 850 - 950 excluding flights

Ikaria Island holiday, organic farmstay villas in Greece
Overall we would rate our holiday 10 out of 10 and fully intend to visit again in the spring, when the wild flowers are blooming. The vineyard is one of the nicest places we have stayed - just what we needed after a stressful year in our business. (more)Helen Maggs
The highlight was the welcoming nature of our host family who shared with us not only their beautifully and painstakingly restored property with its breathtaking view of their terraced vineyard, but also their time, thoughts, knowledge, skills and family fun. (more)Lee Anne Wallach
We were attentively looked after by our hosts, Giorgos & Eleni. They took us to a village festival on the island, Ikaria, and our 17 year old daughter joined the dancing in the village square until 6 in the morning. (more)Gabriel Irwin
