WALKING ON THE GREEK ISLANDS
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Seeing the Acropolis and a great education on all things Greek and Island from the tour leader.
What did you think of your group leader?
Thanos was great. Clearly loves everything about the area so every question on everything (from asparagus to Zeus) wasn't just answered but expanded upon (eg: what's that flower, answer: it's camomile, used in XYZ and prepared by ABC, for ... etc). Also, extraordinarily, instead of cutting our tour schedule due to the poor weather and strike he actually managed to expand it by adding in another island and throwing in his own tour of Athens - which I thought was incredible. I've been on a few tours and have always been impressed by the leaders, but he was outstanding.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Maybe April was too early to go and I think it would have been more fun with a bigger group (only 4 of us).
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Exodus (I think annoyingly) do this with other trips but I can't understand why you'd fly into a city like Athens, then leave it without a tour. It's a great missed opportunity. So I flew in a day early to do a walking tour of the city, and was lucky enough at the end of the trip to get another tour wtih Thanos who knows the city very well.
