WALKING ON THE GREEK ISLANDS
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Really enjoyed all three island - Naxos, Santorini and Paros. Each one has something different to offer, and the great thing about this trip is that you get out into the countryside to pass through villages you might not otherwise see. The coast walk in Santorini is fabulous - it is the most tourtisty of the islands, but the views will make you forgive this. Explore the little streets of the main town of Paros at night, a few of us done this together and it was just lovely.
What did you think of your group leader?
Cecile was great, very friendly, helpful and a good laugh.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
I scheduled in a few extra days in Athens, I would recommend this as you otherwise won't really get to see Athens. The hotel linked with this exodus trip (The Jason Inn), is in a great location for exploring the city. Go to the sunset in Oia when in Santorini. Don't let the throngs of other tourists going put you off. We found a lovely (if a bit expensive) bar to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset from. One of my favourite moments of the trip. Be prepared for a quick turn-around between some activities (i.e. arriving and hotel and departing for dinner, etc.) and quite a bit of ferry time. But neither of the above seemed an issue for anyone in the group.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
The trip has made me want to go back and explore more of the Greek Islands...a great 'taster' trip!
