WALKING ON THE GREEK ISLANDS
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Santorini was fabulous. I would definitely like to return for a longer stay than the 2 nights, which we had.
What did you think of your group leader?
Cecile was a very good guide. Cecile was French and fluent in English and Greek. Her knowledge of wild flowers, herbs and tress was of great value during our walks. Eating mulberries straight from the tree. Cecile also helped us with ordering Greek dishes in the restaurants and discussing items in the shops.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Be careful when travelling on the train from Athens to the port. One of our group was nearly at the receiving of an attempted pick pocket, while boarding the train.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Walking poles are not necessary on this trip as there is no difficult terrain. If you wish to spend more than half a day in Athens, I would recommend booking a few days eithr at the beginning or end of the holiday. It was not an issue for me personally, as I have visited Athens several times over the years.
