Karin Duke-Roedler review 6 Aug 2023
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
The surprise birthday party at the river that Dimitris, our guide, organised for my kids.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
We went in July/August, when is was very, very hot. The hotel in Tripolis is far from the sea, and the local pool is Tripolis has shut down some years ago. There's a hotel about 10 minutes drive away that has a pool, for which we got tickets and were able to use at one particularly hot afternoon when no programme was organised. You'll need a car / taxi to get there. There isn't much of a programme - other than the transfer and drop off at the beach - for the last two days in Nafplio. The family room at the hotel in Nafplio is only practical with young kids; the adjacent room is tiny and the beds not comfortable for anyone older than 10.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
No, this wasn't apparent.
We used the petrol minibus every day. We used plastic water bottles.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
It was a great experience. Our guide, Dimitris, was amazing. He knows all and everything about his country, is kind and just how you'd want your guide to be.

Dear Karin, thank you for your nice review regarding our Family Activity Holidays in Greece. Although this holidays does include driving around, this is inevitable so you are able to visit all those beautiful places of Peloponnese. However, all the activities we do are environmental friendly (cycling, hiking, sea kayaking etc) and the local community benefits the most from this trip. Our company is local, all our guides and employees are locals and we use small local hotels for your accommodation. On top of that, all guests receive guidelines about responsible travel and ways to reduce impact in the area.
