thank you Private Tours for the wonderul experience!
the first part of the tour in mainland Greece was great, our driver was very polite and had many knowledge about the places we visited. In some of the places we also had licensed guides who were very experienced and provided us with in depth information about the sites we visited. The hotels we stayed were all very nice. The cruise to the Aegean and Turkey was very enjoyable and we had the chance to visit many islands in only 3 days! And of course the last part of the land tour where we also visited Zakynthos, was excellent! We left Greece with wonderful memories and we need to thank private tours Greece for their assistance in making our trip a once in a lifetime experience.
Amazing Days (Private Customized Christian Tour)
We just returned from an 10 day customized Christian tour of Greece where we followed the footsteps of St. Paul. We had organized this tour for a group of young adults.
While in Greece, we visited Athens, Corinth, Delphi, Thessaloniki, Nea Fokea, Phillippi, Verea, Meteora. We also took a 3 day cruise and visited Mykonos, Kusadesi (Turkey), Patmos, Crete, and Santorini.
There are so many great things to say about Private Tours Greece, but I will try to keep it short:
1. Our Experience with Mrs. Dmitria (the Private Tours Greece representative who organized the trip for us):
We communicated back and forth for many months with Mrs. Dmitria to create this customized trip. Throughout all the communications, Mrs. Dmitria was very patient and flexible. She worked with us to make many changes to the itinerary until it was something that met our group's needs in terms of budget and covering the places we wanted to see. When we realized that we were not able to afford visiting the islands through a private tour, Mrs. Dmitria recommended a regular cruise for us, and she also booked us this cruise. Her recommendation for the cruise was excellent. In addition, the tour guides she booked for us were also great.
2. Our fantastic bus driver, Vassillis:
Vassillis is a pretty amazing person. Vassillis was not only our driver, but he was also the person who took very good care of us the entire time we were with him. His driving skills are great, as he was able to drive us safely for long hours and far distances, even when we got a little noisy on the bus. Vassillis also has the patience of Job (a skill I need to learn from Vassillis) not only for waiting for us, but also for putting up with our endless questions for him. When we asked him to take us to authentic Greek restaurants, he took us to restaurants where the staff treated us with great hospitality.
Perhaps the most striking part was when one of our youth was very ill on the bus, and he kept driving around to find a washroom for her (although we were already running late). When he could not find any place for her to use a washroom, he stopped at a "cafe" only for men (women are not allowed inside). Vassillis got off the bus, bought a coffee to convince the staff inside to let us use the washroom, and then he stayed inside the "cafe" until we were finished and the youth was feeling better.
I guess what impressed me the most about this company is that whether I was dealing with Dmitria or with Vassillis, it was very clear that these people REALLY cared about us, and about our young adults. They sincerely wanted us to enjoy every minute of the trip, and they consistently went over and above to help us enjoy everything.
Thank you very much Dmitria and Vassillis for everything! I think we all fell in love with Greece because of you!
