What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Felt comfortable rather than inspired. Highlights were time spent chatting with other travellers, watching sunrise over the Aegean, and arriving in port on each island. Old town on Naxos was lovely and worth an extra visit.

What did you think of your group leader?

Cheerful, charming and helpful but not very interested in or knowledgable about the places we visited. It was a bit of a whirlwind tour, but I did not feel I learnt a lot about what it was like living in the area, and I'm sure there was a lot more historical interest than we had drawn to our attention!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Take a good book or Kindle for the ferry journeys, or get lucky and have good company (which I did)

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Carafes of local rose wine go down a treat, and leave no hangover!
