Wonderful relaxing holiday
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
For me the most stunning cultural experience of the trip was our visit to Acotiri (site of the Minoen city destroyed by the volcanic eruption in 1650 BC) and the nearby museum with some of the artefacts and frescos. (The rest are in Athens). The walks were so peaceful with stunning views and interesting villages.
What did you think of your group leader?
Thanos was an excellent and personable travel companion. He had a deep knowledge of ancient and modern Greek history and culture. (As well as the flora and fauna of the area). All the arrangements worked perfectly, he was helpful, well respected by people we met and took us to some great restaurants and coffee stops!
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
If you have any special dietary needs or are not a great lover of burgers and chips I would take some food with you on the ferry journeys. I had forgotten that an island holiday in October may be a bit cooler due to the breeze, so take a thin long sleeved top though it was still shorts walking weather
Is there anything else you would like to add?
It was a wonderfully relaxing way to see a lot of Greece, the walks were interesting but not demanding. So my advice would be book now!
