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.

    We enjoyed this tour since we love mythology and history. Accomodation and meals were good We were unlucky to be stuck at Mykonos for extra day due to weather conditions and had only one day at Santorini . Our guide Filip was top of the class , he even organised bday cake for my son

    Our Guide Filip was engaging, organized, thorough, and full of information. He absolutely made the trip that much more enjoyable for me. Our itinerary/schedule always felt 2 steps ahead of other tour groups which made the busy stops more enjoyable. I was not expecting much from accommodations, but was actually very impressed with each one. The value of this trip cannot be matched. If you do the mainland tour, you must continue in with the island part! If I’m never able to get back to Greece, I will still feel like I got a taste of everything it has to offer. Definitely a trip of a lifetime for me.

    Greece was a wonderful place to visit A lot History and my Guide Shae was always available to us to ensure our time in Greece was one we enjoyed. Her knowledge of the local area and the mythology of Greece was great and she always tried to keep it entertaining for us.

    Be honest about the cost of the excursions. Book better hotels, have wifi on the bus, have headsets so we can hear what is being said by local guides, make sure people are safe when crossing streets, make sure warnings are given about pickpockets, improve everything about this trip.

    The accommodation and included meals were notnof good quality. Moreover, it seems like wasted money in the islands as accommodation in Santorini was very bad plus there were no included activitires at all. Everything including transportation had to be paid extra so it wasn’t worth going on the island tour at all

    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!!
