    The expat Greece tour was such a great experience, however, I believe this was down to our guide Rose, nothing was ever too much for her, she loves the country and it definitely showed. I loved to story times and all the interesting facts she shared with us, felt like I learnt something new everyday.

    Wow, Best of Greece. This was our forth of five Expat Explore Tours and I must say, it had been our best with Expat Explore thus far. We had 12 days of sun, fun and laughter with our very informative, helpful, funny, and friendly tour leader Rose Brown. (In my sixties, I kind of walk slowly and she kindly kept pace with me.) Even with our tour companions, I feel like this was the best group we've had. Everybody became friends with everyone, thanks to Rose paving the way. If you want an in depth tour of Greece, the Best of Greece is right up your alley and hopefully you get to have Rose Brown for your tour leader, a gem among tour leaders in Expat Explore. Cheers and happy touring. God bless....

    I took this tour from September 24th-October 5th 2017. I have been on other group guided tours so I was familiar with what to expect but I my expectations were far exceeded when the tour was over. The accommodation was as I would expect for a value based tour but we weren't in our accommodation too much to really notice as there was always something to see or do. The locations that we visited were all the main highlights of Greece and we certainly covered more ground on the tour than I would have had I gone on my own or tried to plan this myself so the itinerary was great (esp for a value tour). The drivers we had always got us to our destination on time and safely (not an easy feat on some Greek roads). Our tour guide Rose Brown was simply amazing! She made great efforts to get all of us on the tour to become a family and the friends I made on the tour have been great and I still keep in touch with them, which isn't something I would normally do as a more introverted person. She was energetic and lively and always open and available for queries or any issues we might have had. We were never stuck for good and reasonable food recommendations (food is just as important to me as the culture of an area) as Rose always knew where to go and for what budget. When issues arose during the tour, such as hotels closing early or individual tours not going ahead because of weather Rose always made sure there were options available to us to ensure our time in Greece was one we enjoyed (and I thoroughly did). Her knowledge of the local area and the mythology of Greece was great and she always tried to keep it entertaining for us. Rose is the reason I would take another expat tour again and if I did I would hope to get a guide and knowledgeable, personable and enthusiastic as Rose!!

    Our 2 week tour encompassed the Greek mainlands, Santorini, and Mykonos. In summary, our vacation was excellent and memorable from a variety of perspectives. Our tour group got along famously with each other which I think was at least partly due to the efforts of our tour guide (Rose Brown). She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and was very attentive to the needs of everyone. Our drivers were also very professional handling the sometimes difficult terrain safely and with confidence. The real highlight is Greece itself. I just loved everything about it - when I eventually retire, I could easily live there. Good food is cheap and the vibe is just great despite the economic downturn

    I was on this tour September 24th-October 5th and it completely surpassed my expectations. This was my first tour with Expat and my first in Greece. I’ve never really done a group guided tour before. The locations visited were all ones that I intended to travel to during a Greece trip and the included meals made this perfect for the cost! Three things truly made this tour a perfect experience for me. First, was the location. Greece was a beautiful destination, with amazing food, beautiful landscapes, and so much history. Second, were the friends I made along the way. Two weeks flew by with the group I was a part of and I’m glad to have gotten to know everyone and still keep in touch with them. Last, but most important, was our tour guide, Rose Brown! She is truly the reason I will be returning to Expat for two tours in 2018! She was full of energy all the time, shared so much knowledge and mythology about the locations we were exploring, and always knew how to make things fun and exciting, whether it was while exploring ruins or traveling on the bus haha. Nothing but respect for her and I hope that one day I will get her as a guide on another Expat trip!!

Angelos our tour guide was the best guide ever!!! and we had a fabulous group of people on the tour. I made amazing new friends - 3 very special friends who all attended my wedding this year (was single when I was on the tour). Brook, came to NZ from USA and Kim and Helen came from AUS to NZ for the wedding. The tour includes the very important historical side of Greece which so has to be seen and appreciated as well as the most beautiful islands - Mykonos & Santorini - that I have ever been to. Cannot recommend this tour and Expat Explore enough... Regards Sian Gillanders, New Zealand

    • Lynette12th April 2018
      I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
