Samantha "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..."
