Most memorable for me, I would probably just go for the trip to Mycenae, as it had been a long-held wish to go there, and it didn't disappoint! (more)Neil Holt
This was about the best holiday I have ever been on; with excellent licensed guides informing us of the archaeology in the historical Peloponnese and in Athens. (more)Alan Wallis
Really good. Easily lived up to expectations. (more)Malcolm Torry

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

Our Yoga in the morning with wonderful views, our teacher Shelley Weiner, our Demos in the mornings, our writing course and our fun evenings with singing, dancing and auctioning.

The instructors, the food, the town, the people who ran it... It was the most perfect holiday. (more)Maya Van Kirk

Greece walking holiday, Naxos and the Cyclades

I had a fantastic holiday. Ten out of ten possible. Annie the guide was large part of that. Very professional and with a big heart. (more)ERIK Svanes
I enjoyed eating island food, including greens picked from the wild and boiled hyacinth bulbs (the place was alive with tasselled hyacinths in bloom) and of course lots of raki on Amorgos in a rustic restaurant that was really our hosts' home was something I will never forget. (more)Steve Gattey
From £685 - £740 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)

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 £416 - £457 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 €649 excluding flights
Greece cycling holiday, archaeology tour
Cycling through quiet countryside and seeing rural life, miles of apple, orange and olive trees, sheep and goats grazing, beehives everywhere, wild flowers, birds, lots of opportunities for sitting and drawing or dreaming. (more)Fiona Eccles
Excellent- marvellous landscape, lots to see, good bicycle rides, meeting some special people, smooth service, many moving conversations and the pleasure of Greek life. (more)Helen Wells
Excellent. Good hotels, reasonably priced food, well maintained cycles (The best cycles we have ever hired). The sites of interest on our journey were better and better everyday.

From €698 - €728 excluding flights
Laconia cycling holiday in Greece
Good fun, we felt we were well off the beaten tourist track at times. Scenery impressive. (more)Hilary Thomas
Everything about the trip was excellent. The operator has done meticulous research to map out the cycling routes and provides directions that are informative and easy to follow. The equipment provided - the bike and the GPS - were top notch. (more)Andrew Wallace
From €735 excluding flights
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
Excellent...Visiting the Temple of the Dragons on the top of Mount Oci, Evia was the most memorable part. (more)Jan Pryer
From £849 - £1079 including UK flights
Rhodes family activity holiday in Greece
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? All the activities, hotels and restaurants that we used / went to were owned and run by locals which gave us a sense of not only an authentic experience but that we were contributing to the local economy. Overall rating? We had an excellent time and enjoyed every minute... (more)Lindsay Earle
From €850 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
Greece yoga holiday

From £790 excluding flights
Greece archaeology and activity holiday
I am happy to tell you that this vacation was our very best ever. My husband and I went with our 16-year old granddaughter. What was so great about the trip was that it appealed so much to all of us, despite our very different ages and different interests. (more)Ellen Lambert
I cannot say enough good things about this trip – it was fantastic, a one of a kind experience, an informative and eye opening introduction to a most beautiful country, and a chance to slow down and enjoy the sights on foot and by bike. (more)Juli Morgan
From €990 excluding flights
Multi activity holiday in Greece
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
Excellent, we all really enjoyed the different activities. The rafting was brilliant, although in fairness all the activities were excellent, well organised and suited to all abilities....We will definitely be back! (more)June Nelson
From €840 excluding flights
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
Sailing holiday in the Ionian Sea
Every moment on the boat was highly enjoyable, the islands we travelled to were extremely beautiful, the food was exquisite, the sea so clean and blue as you would only imagine on postcards. The most memorable moment of the holiday was a night swim and snorkel amidst the luminous plankton. (more)Carolin Sommer
Fantastic we were well looked after, and very welcome on board the sailing boat. Swimming and sailing also the Greek food and Taverna's recommended by Annie and Satera were fantastic. (more)Vanessa Sutcliffe
From £416 - £457 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)
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 excluding flights
Greece walking holiday, Kythnos
A perfect short break, balanced walking, swimming and eating. (more)Jerry Stuart
The locals are very friendly, and nearly all greeted us as we passed along the roads. (more)Martin Pollard

Peloponnese self catering cottage sleeps 2, Greece
Five Stars!...We enjoyed everything about it. We found the cottage suited us perfectly, we took our 21 month old and the owners provided a cot,mosquito net and paddling pool for her (more)Hannah Prothero
One of the best holidays we have spent in Greece, and we have been many times. Koroni is a beautiful unspoilt town. (more)Corinne Bushby
Great! We had everything we needed, and the cottage was very well equipped. The best part for us was the beautiful garden, with loads of places to sit. (more)Rebecca Ingram
From €50 - €100 per cottage per night
Rural Crete holiday villa, Greece
Memorable parts? The drive to Panokosmos, once we had left the main autoroute was exciting. The road wound up into the hills and the last 200 yards the road was narrow and hair- raising but what a fantastic place to reach - brilliant hill top home with the most fantastic views. Looking out over the mountains and valleys each morning never ceased to impress us. Panokosmos is a place to escape to - to relax in and just 'unhook' yourself from the daily madness that could well be your daily existence.... (more)flis hughes
From €100 - €230 per accommodation per night
