    I toast to a woman of great virtuousness, patience, knowledge, kindness and acceptance. A good human being with a sweet essence. Margarita enriched my understanding of Greek culture in an engaging and accessible way. She was thorough and thoughtful, and also able to accommodate all vegan and vegetarian dietary restrictions so my beloved and I didn’t feel left out. All of her recommendations were exceptional. We would love to tour with her again!

    Very much as the brochure; knowledgeable guide and good local guides. Expert safe driver. Be aware that the footing was often uneven and the paths steep and slippery in places. Our less active companions were not able to get to some sites and had to wait with the bus. Know your capabilities. Also, no tea-making facilities in the rooms was a bit of a let-down.

    First the good. Greece has many very interestng historical sites spread out over 900 miles, so a bus tour is expedient way to travel. Our guide was very nice and helpful. Great bus and driver. The first hotel in Athens had very nice "upgraded" rooms. The site were very good with good local guides. The not so good. The rest of the hotels were decent yet worn out with 3 having barely functioning air conditioning. Most of the food at hotels was decent to fair breakfasts, but the dinners were not very good, better to just go out on town and find something. All small towns and hard to find food above average at best, though Delphi has great resturants. Returning to same hotel in Athens has "regular" rooms not as nice. That hotel does have very good restaurant dinner and breakfast buffet. Summary, great sites, guides, transport, but food, lack of ac a big disappointment. The first day additional boat cruise to 3 islands was a 13 hours waste of time and money. Horrible lunch, spent 1 hour at good town Hydra.and other 2 a waste of time.
