Archaeology holiday in Greece
Fantastic, well organised, informative and great fun. Wonderful memories of our visit to the Peloponesse. (more)Gary Gleeson
The most memorable part of the holiday was our hike along the Lousios gorge that ended with a wonderful picnic among the ruins of Gortys, an ancient healing centre...We would rate the archaeology activity holiday overall as among the best holidays we've had in Europe. (more)Ellen Taylor
The people we interacted with throughout our holiday, including Christos and his father, the drivers, the specialized tour guides, the hotel staff, and restaurant and shopkeepers were extremely warm and friendly. (more)Randi Morrison
From €980 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 €790 - €920 excluding flights
Lefkada walking holiday in Greece
I had a fantastic time, enjoyed the wonderful walks, the natural environment and the great company! (more)Alex Pooley
Excellent. I will be back next year! I would not hesitate to recommend to a friend. (more)Violet Holley
From £529 - £576 excluding flights
Writing courses in Greece
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. Vaso's food was also a memorable experience. Our boat trips were also brilliant. All in all, very beautiful place, very interesting people and participants and very helpful staff. (more)Alexia Papageorgiou
The instructors, the food, the town, the people who ran it... It was the most perfect holiday. (more)Maya Van Kirk
From £1195 - £1245 excluding flights
Greece walking holiday, Naxos and the Cyclades
I came back loaded with an experience of a lifetime and made friends for a lifetime! I didn’t just come back from a holiday, but I came back with an experience that echoed – ‘I lived in Greece, like a true local and experienced life in Greece in its truest sense' (more)Sarita Chitrapu
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
Late April is a wonderful time, still off high season: almost deserted beaches where you can already swim - although water is still a bit on the chilly side, and wonderful spring blossoms on every trail. Very relaxing, a real Greek "hanami", guided by an enthusiastic and friendly Greek woman! (more)Esteve Marie
From £761 - £822 excluding flights
Cyclades sailing & walking holiday in Greece
Excellent, thanks so much. We really enjoyed the trip, the company, the places we visited and the people we met. (more)Gesche McGibbon
10 out of 10 based on the companionship, weather, knowledge and sheer good fun that was had by both of us during this holiday. (more)Rebecca Coker
First-rate. A great and memorable experience. It also introduced us well to the people of these smaller islands and their way of life. Happy to recommend strongly. (more)Lawrence Holden
From €774 - €860 excluding flights

From £949 - £1099 including UK flights
Cyclades walking holiday, Greece
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
Our guide was able to speak to everyone and we were welcomed and given fruit, honey, drinks, desserts, and wine. Our a accommodation owner gave us a tour of his orange farm and marmalade. The island, villages, and ocean were beautiful. (more)Sandra Stanton
The most memorable parts of the holiday were walking in Syros & seeing the beautiful scenery & wealth of wild herbs & flowers. Also Annie was a great guide and very attentive to us, and helped the group in many ways. (more)Catriona Collum
From £529 - £576 excluding flights
Greece cycling holiday, archaeology tour
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. The holiday operator Christos was very knowledgeable and took us on a mini tour of The Corinthian Canal on our way back to the airport as a bonus on his own initiative. (more)Christine Mitchell
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
Walking holiday in Naxos, Greece
Memorable parts? Discovering Greece through Naxos. Tips? That your advice was excellent and accurate. Local benefits? It was some income for locals who are on hard times between their debts and Euro needs. The islanders seemed to feel that a return to the drachma was not an option. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Leaver
From £531 - £575 excluding flights
Walking holiday in Greece
Memorable parts? Visiting the Temple of the Dragons on the top of Mount Oci, Evia. Tips? Make sure you have stout walking boots. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Excellent. Will book again. (more)Jan Pryer
From £829 - £949 including UK flights
Sailing holiday in the Aegean Sea
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
Awesome! I recommend everyone to try it. (more)Ruben Campos
From €590 - €720 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 €559 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
Greece archaeology and activity holiday
Memorable parts? I am planning to write a separate letter of thanks to our wonderful hosts, but 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. The art we saw was of course amazing--Delphi, and Olympia, and the Parthenon, as well as the lesser-known archeological museum in Tripoli--it... (more)Ellen Lambert
From €980 excluding flights
Sifnos walking holiday in the 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 £529 - £576 excluding flights
Greece yoga holiday
All of the holiday was memorable, from the yoga sessions, to the clear blue sea and wonderful scenery, and our excellent hosts and accommodation. I loved this unspoilt area of Greece. (more)Carol Taylor
Amazing - I left the holiday feeling healthy, refreshed and very relaxed - it was exactly what I needed after a very busy, stressful period in my life and I would not hesitate to go again. (more)Ragani Lindquist
From £790 excluding flights
Multi activity holiday in Greece
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
Every day was special and exciting and We would repeat every day again...Everybody in the organisation did their best to make everything wonderful (more)Nicolescu ion
From €820 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 €820 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 €590 - €720 excluding flights
Luxury Greek Island holiday accommodation
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
The wonderful view of the sea from the cottage, and the fantastic swimming in the clearest, blue sea water i have ever seen ... Just go - you will be rejuvenated! (more)Raju Bhatt
From €2495 - €4950 per week (sleeps 4-6)
Sailing & conservation holiday in Greece
The whole experience was wonderful. Sotiris, our skipper was fantastic , very professional, kind and fun. This holiday was wonderful...it could not have been better...we should have stayed longer. It really was a very unique experience, very special to me. (more)Joanne David
Excellent! Every aspect was amazing. My partner and I are both deeply grateful to everyone who works for the operator for making such a special and memorable experience. We will almost certainly be booking up again! (more)Alison Crawford
A fabulous holiday. Sotiri and Melita were delightful and knowledgeable hosts. Annie who did the reservations was efficient and friendly. The boat was well equipped, safe and comfortable and the fellow guests good company. (more)Susan Sargeant
From €774 - €860 excluding flights
Peloponnese holiday, cultural tour in Greece
Excellent...Getting to Mycenae early enough to go straight to the top of the sight and having five minutes absorbing the atmosphere on our own. (more)Nicholas Rigby-Jones
The mountains around Nizwa in Oman and the night spent on the dhow off the coast near Muscat was the most memorable. (more)Vicki Neech
From £1399 - £1499 including UK flights
Naxos holiday accommodation, villa and B&B, Greece
We stayed with Gilly as bed and breakfast guests for a week in early May this year and I thought I must write to say how friendly and welcoming Gilly and Robin were. They gave us a delicious breakfast each morning and made our stay very special by giving us lots of excellent information on exploring Naxos and tips on tavernas to eat at. Our apartment was very thoughtfully decorated and equipped, the rooms light, pretty and tasteful, in a simple Greek style but with personal touches and everything... (more)Kate Hay
From £40 - £200
Villa holiday in Crete, Greece
Memorable parts? I went on holidays with my 96-year-old mother, which is memorable in itself... At the last minute she had some health problems so it seemed we had to cancel the holiday but she was so keen to go! And we had a great time. Tips? Get a car to go around, the place is unreachable otherwise and not easy to find if not with very clear directions; by night almost impossible. Local benefits? The environmental impact is definitely low, no air-conditioning and solar... (more)Laura Palmucci
From €24 - €70 per room per night
Crete cooking holiday in Greece
Memorable parts? I've enjoyed the Cretan cooking week so much, I've learnt how to prepare some of the delicious Cretan dishes, but mostly I won't forget the warmth and friendship I experienced from my host and lovely instructor/cook. This was definitely a memorable trip that I will carry in my heart for years to come. Tips? Go with an open heart and mind to experience the tastes and smells of the place and to meet the locals who are kind and warm, you definitely will end up with new... (more)Asma Abu Taleb
From €1100 - €1300 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 €865 excluding flights
Lesvos holiday accommodation, Greece
Memorable parts? Just being able to completely relax and read and enjoy ourselves. The sea is beautiful and clear. The whole atmosphere of the place is very chilled. Batteries definitely fully recharged. Tips? Vatera, Lesvos is a place to go if you want a completely chilled 'do nothing' kind of holiday (which we did). It was perfect for our needs because it enabled us to wind down, read a lot, swim a lot, and not a lot else. If you like a holiday with things to do or lots of exploring... (more)Emily Hunka
From €35 - €99 per accommodation per night
Walking holiday in Tinos, Greece
Memorable parts? It's impossible to just pick out one thing. The places we stayed were well chosen and really nice to be in. The walks were all wonderful - varied and interesting. The instructions beforehand and those for the actual walks were excellent and included lots of information about the island. Our manager was very knowledgeable and friendly and efficient and made it possible for us to walk on our own in places we would not have otherwise ventured, knowing that we had total backup... (more)Hazel Hayhurst
From £531 - £575 excluding flights
