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

Everything!! We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects and thought everything well thought out and organised. Loved the ferry journeys. So nice it was all taken care of.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

For this trip would say to others give some thought about walking about in Santorini especially if dodgy knees and hips are in evidence!

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

Yes definitely. Thought the whole idea brilliant.

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

10 out if 10. Wished we could experience it all again. Onwards and upwards maybe try out some more walking hols!

review 17 Apr 2018

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

The walks in the countryside surrounded by spring flowers and wild herbs. The three islands were very different, but each were magical in their own way.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Go in the spring. The islands are fairly quiet and later in the year Santorini in particular can have up to 6 cruise ships each day visiting the island. Also try and visit Akrotiri if you are interested in archaeological sites.

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

Yes. It was very good to use local family run restaurants.

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

It was a very good group with a very enthusiastic leader and it gave me a taste of what the Greek islands can offer.

review 29 Oct 2018

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

Thanos, the extremely knowledgeable guide. And the unexpected interesting-ness of Naxos! Less tourists yet much more to see.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be aware alternative days largely spent travelling between islands so only one full day on each. However travelling on the ferries was part of the experience.

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

Not beyond giving them custom.

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

Enjoyable.

review 20 Oct 2015

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

Sea kayaking. Wanted to do it but was apprehensive. Our guide gave us all good instructions and confidence and we had a fantastic time paddling over a sunken city and seeing turtles. The coastline is stunning and colours are amazing.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take some reef shoes for kayaking and you will need walking trainers or boots. A pole is very useful too.

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

Certainly. We had lunch prepared by local people and ate produce from their garden and cheese and yoghurt from their goats. The husband and wife who took us for the evening boat ride also prepared food themselves on board. I really liked the fact that we could fill our water bottles at the large water cooler in the hotel. Please encourage others hotels to do the same. Our guide was environmentally aware and had a love of nature and animals.

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

Very enjoyable. A good programme and a pleasant group of people. Excellent guide. All food v good. Hotel could be better. Definitely a holiday to recommend.
