Noreen & Friends in Athens and Crete, Greece - Travel Reviews

Noreen & Friends, USA

Good Morning Danae,

I just wanted to thank you for putting together a wonderful vacation. The only comment from a few of us was that we should have stayed longer in Athens.

Everyone had a wonderful time. We had some pictures taken by a professional photographer, but we haven't uploaded them to the cloud yet, so I can't attach them. I have attached some smaller group photos. At the Acropolis, in Heraklion at a taverna, one of John and I at the Acropolis and one in Agios Nicolas.

It was a pleasure working with you and if we travel to Greece again or if I know of anyone planning to travel to Greece, your agency will be first on my list.

Warm Regards,
Noreen

Thanks John.

We are safely back and had a very nice time. We especially liked the hotel you selected for us in Crete (Avili), a beautiful and unique property. On Santorini we ended up renting a motorboat for several days to get out on the water each day as we loved the sunset cruise you arranged and wanted to spend the days on the water. Our guide in Athens was great. I am recommending you to a number of my friends and you should be getting some calls in the next year.
