Dear Thanos, thank you so much for your planning of our trip and your help. I took your advice and tips and had a great time visiting Greece! It is truly a wonderful country full of fantastic, friendly people, beautiful sights, and delicious food. We are definitely going back soon.
My traveling companion made all the arrangements with you, and she reports being very happy with her dealings. We met your colleague at the Athens airport. She was very helpful, friendly, and she made us feel very welcomed and had some great suggestions on how to enjoy Greece.
My traveling companion wanted to stay in expensive 5 star resorts, and that's what we got! I didn't really plan on staying in them, because the only thing that mattered to me was a roof over my head and a bed to sleep in. But I will admit that the hotels were indeed 5 stars, esp. Hotel Royal Olympic -- with great views of the Acropolis and the Beautiful hotel located on beautiful Agios Ioannis beach on Mykonos. The Santorini Aeolis is a very nice hotel in Santorini, just a few minutes walk from the black sand beaches, shops, and great restaurants. All the hotels offered different and wonderful amenities. But like I said, so long as I had a bed to sleep in, I was satisfied. To me a hotel room is just a place to leave your stuff while you go out and explore and experience the wonders of the the place you're visiting.
There is so much to see and enjoy in Greece, and I tried to take the off the beaten path, trying to do what locals do to really get the essence of Greece. I loved it! It was a great vacation and a wonderful experience that I am looking forward to continuing, because I plan on going back.
