I would rate this trip 4.5 star - good range of coverage, accommodation (in most places), activities and free time. The only reason why I would deduct half a star is because Santorini accommodation could have been much better and choice of restaurants for organised group dinners could also have been better vs going to a place where all the other travel groups go - took away the authenticity.
Wish we had a little longer in each town, and a curise as an optional would be lovely.
Awesome. Saw all the sights I wanted to see with getting great information
It was a lot of fun but some of the hotels weren’t incredible and there were some times when our guide wasn’t in the same hotel which was concerning especially when we had a medical incident
Trip was almost perfect only issue was the weather kept us from taking the ferry to Paros, which was devastating as I was looking forward to Paros. I think maybe a flight could have been a better option for transport to pros, however understand it would add to the feed also
Badly organized. Would never go again
The places we visited were beautiful! although there was a fair bit of extra cost that I feel like could have been included. Such as the "guided tour to the Acropolis" in Athens. Key word "to". If you wanted to actually explore and go up there you had to pay extra and do it in your own time. 10 days was amazing, but it just goes so fast, you've only just got on an island and all of a sudden you've got to up and leave again. I feel like you'd really get your moneys worth if you had 3 day and nights on each island. Not including Athens, 1 day is definitely enough.
Greek island hopper was amazing. More walking then I had expected but that also meant I had time to take in the surroundings. The guide was a local that had live in Greece their whole life; so was super passionate about the country.
Some optional activities included a archeological site but no explanation was given about it, we just walked around it, the trip leader spoke good English but was really hard to follow at time
Completely worth my money. Everything seemed fairly priced, our guide was able to recommend both higher end or inexpensive authentic Greek food everywhere we went. The memories and experience I'm taking away from this trip is absolutely worth every penny. I would definitely do this exact trip again just to relive it all.
El tour es muy bueno, incluye los principales destinos para conocer, con todas las facilidades para poder visitarlos de forma agradable. La selección de hoteles esta bien. María, la tour leader de mi grupo, hizo un buen trabajo, siempre estuvo al pendiente de todos, lo único que le falto fue darnos el recorrido por el centro de Fira.
Lo que no me gustó fue la actitud y prepotencia del chofer que nos llevó al hotel en Mykonos: nos hablo mal diciéndonos que no ocupáramos los asientos de enfrente de la camioneta porque estaban reservados para las personas que bajaban antes, lo dijo de mala manera, levantando la voz y de forma despectiva; al final fuimos nosotros quienes bajamos antes.
La atención del personal del hotel de Atenas y Pharos fue regular; el servicio del hotel de Santorini y Mykonos fue buena.
Greece is amazing so the trip was great!
The tour was so much fun and we packed a lot in, the only thing that the tour didn’t include was Acropolis. We had an awesome tour guide that made sure my meal requests were put into the kitchens (vegetarian)
Definitely recommend this tour, perfect amouny of relaxation as well as fun and cultural experiences!
Fantastic value for money! The included dinners were at some fantastic restaurants and the optionals were def's worth it.
Waste of money. I could have done a similar tour myself and had a much better experience. WAY TOO MUCH time wasted on travelling in boats purely because its the cheapest option. €50 more each and we could have hoped on an hour long flight rather than an 8 hour uncomfortable boat ride. Ridiculous.
so much fun! incredible places!
There was a strike when we were suppose yo go to paros so we ended up staying in mykonos another night and day. I loooved mykonos and paros was super quiet so it ended up working out good.
The sights were amazing, the accommodation was very average
Alki our tour guide was amazing! she definitely made the trip worthwhile with all of her expertise knowledge about the beautiful Greek islands and had a fun and uplifting attitude.
alki was always helpful knowing the language in greece, friendly, caring and informative.
Saw the highlights of Athens and the islands. Our tour guide knew some great places to visit during our free time which made this tour all the greater.
Per previous comments - better accomodation required
Well organized, great hotels.
Best trip ever! Much better than I expected, I want to book another!
Best way to see Greece, amazing trip!!
2 nights in each place gave us time to actually explore and enjoy each island.
The initial costs did not cover activities during the day- found that you would have to pay extra on top if you wanted to do anything extra.
We also weren't given any options with different activities we could do(i.e. not inside information from a local) - if we weren't interested in the paid activities, would have to do the research ourselves.
The optional extras were great, I highly recommend doing them all. We didn’t have much time to do the Acropolis but do recommend getting in.
Athens- Hotel was nice and great service.
Mykonos- the hotel was beautiful but not that close to the town.
Location of Paros was great- right in the town.
Santorini was a 20min walk from Fira and not a very nice hotel.
I think it was a fair price provided i got some discounts.
It was a good trip and i would recommend it to my friends
Beautiful scenery and wonderful people
It was great I just wish we were closer to the water to be able to swim more. Myconos was really the only place where we could do that. Santorini we were too far from any of the beaches and had little time to get to one of them.
I’ve wanted to visit Greece for a long time, and I’m so glad I chose this trip to do it!
The trip was spaced out enough to visit a number of islands and still have time to explore them properly.
With all the difficult travel parts like ferries already organised for us, it left us with plenty of time to meet locals and check out all the islands had to offer.
I cannot wait to return!
Not enough time spend on each island. Spent a few good hours a day waiting for ferries etc.
This trip was the absolute best! Our tour guide delivered such a wonderful experience and was very engaging with everyone and was so full of knowledge regarding Greek history. So many options were available to tempt everyone's difference needs and it was wonderful to have a smaller group as well as I found it a lot easier to get to know everyone.
Mykonos and Athens apartments were great. Maybe something a little close in Santorini would be best.
I enjoyed the freedom of the tour. I was completely in control of the amount of involvment in activities, which was refreshing.
I also highly recommended my Tour lead Maria, she definitely went above and beyond what was required and ensured everyone enjoyed the Greek Islands.
Themis was a wealth of knowledge, enjoyed a party and new all the best photo spots, beaches, clubs, restaurants and sunset spots. He really made the trip amazing. His passion for his job shone through day in day out. He made the days memorable with his wealth of local knowledge, passion for his country and culture and his energy levels to have a great day, everyday :)
As mentioned previously....
Thanks to our fabulous tour guide. She was very organised which was awesome, and the activities we did were heaps of fun!!
Everything catered to and amazing itinerary
Our local guide was awesome and the islands were beautiful.
I had such an amazing time in Greece.
The whole experience was fun and breathtaking
I didn't understand money for value for this tour and I got it on sale too!
Food was average, optionals were way too expensive. trip Leader was a dissappointment
Was just amazing! Well planned and amazing team/ suppliers.
Was a very fun and interesting trip
Good price of money for what is offered
I thought it was a little overpriced but it was a fantastic experience.
This trip was a great price. Maria the trip leader was amazing at her job and you could tell she was passionate about it which made it even more amazing. Definitely great value.
Lovely islands to explore and relax.
This was a great tour but obviously any tour is going to be more expenisve than doing it yourself. The optional activities were also quite high priced as well
Did not make any purchases as the choices were not great.
It was extremely overpriced compared to what you got out of the trip
This was such a lovely summer trip I just wish we had more days in Mykonos, Santorini and Paros. But overall Mykonos was my favourite and I will be going back next year.
My tour guide Athina was the best, she was always there, and she went above and beyond to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and was very accommodating. Thank you Athina.
Good amount of free time and activity balance! A lot of fun!
As mentioned above the advertising of 10 days and it really only ended up being 7-8 brings the value down.
Could have had nicer accommodation in Athens and so much extra money needs to be taken into consideration for the “optional tours”. Spent way too much money on food as not many meals are included.
I got a really good deal on the trip, so the price wasn’t too expensive. The budget hotels and restaurants were a bit run down but I guess Topdeck just picks cheap places to go to. Probably worth the experience for some people though.
Far price for a good time
Good mix of accommodation and travel between areas was nice
Our trip leader was very experienced and organized. He knew exactly where to go, what to do, and how to get there.
The ancient monuments and historical sites were exceptionally preserved and wonderful to experience.
