From our travellers

One of our best travel experiences EVER! Thank you Greece Insiders!

Going to Greece? Want a travel agent? If so, I highly recommend Greece Insiders! I planned a multigenerational family trip to Greece that included young children (7y and 10y), young adults (22/23), and adults in their 30s, 40s, and 50s. Unfortunately, my parents who are in the 70s couldn’t make ...

the trip due to a last minute health issue but it turns out that’s for the best as they aren’t as mobile as they used to be and many of the areas we went wouldn’t have been navigable for them.Back to the travel agency experience though… I had worked with a couple other travel agents when trying to plan our trip. I like to call my travel style Selective Luxury or Cost Conscious Luxury. Meaning, I want luxury experiences, but money is an object. I don’t want to spend much more than I need to for luxury experiences, but I’m ok spending a bit more to get a luxury experience and to ensure the get the level of service and experience that we expect. That makes it difficult to work with some travel agents. It seems like travel agents fall in two camps: 1) bulk travel agents who basically have a cookie cutter plan that they effectively try to force fit you in for their efficiency, or 2) full service luxury travel agents who do amazing things but don’t want to talk unless you’re willing to effectively give them a blank check. I initially tried Amex Travel, and I had good experience with them on some domestic trips, but in this case I kept finding travel agents that only fell in the two categories above. I needed something in the middle. Then I came across Greece Insiders via KimKim. Chris was our agent. HE WAS AMAZING.He took the time to understand what we’re trying to do, who was going on the trip with us, what types of experiences we were most interested in. He gave me a lot of options to start with so he could start seeing what I was drawn to. There were things that immediately resonated, things that didn’t and stuff in between. But he continuously learned our style and expectations. He was also flexible… Remember those categories of travel agents above? It seems like neither of those two categories are willing to work with you if you want to book any lodging via AirBnB or similar sites. They have their own channels they prefer and those channels typically have minimum stays of a week or more. In our case, our trip was going to be 10 days split between 3 places - Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini. I wanted luxury accommodations, preferably homes with swimming pools, hot tubs, several bedrooms, at least two master bedrooms, several bathrooms, and large gathering spaces where we could eat and hang out. So we had very specific expectations. I was able to find places in all three locations that fit the bill through our favorite short-term rental site. Chris was more than happy to work with that and was able to even work with the owners/managers to help us coordinate chefs and other services that we had come in occasionally on specific days.He pulled together the perfect vacation for us. It had the right amount of activity, relaxation time, exploration, and experiences. I would absolutely recommend Greece Insiders and Chris in particular. FABULOUS!

The tours she booked for us all exceeded our expectations. When planning the trip she was very easy to talk to and stayed within our budget without hesitation.We are so happy with our experience we couldn’t imagine doing another trip without her!

Best Graduation Gift

My grandson and I had the most amazing tour of Greece. From the representatives to the drivers and tour guides everything was handled beautifully. The hotels were very nice and centrally located. I would highly recommend Greece Insiders to help you organize your perfect trip.

Perfect trip – wouldn’t change a thing!

Fantastic experience working with Alexandros to plan the perfect trip for the 4 of us and then Elena on any day to day needs while on our trip. The responsiveness of Greece Insiders truly stood out from the early planning Alexandros listened to what we liked to do and planned ...

Great experience for our first trip to Greece

Great service and planning for our amazing first trip to Greece! Alexandros took the time to arrange calls with us to get to know us personally, what we liked as a family, gave various options but also his professional recommendations to help us plan our itinerary. We have 2 young children, ...

and he made sure to take this in account with our plans, even sharing child-friendly tips. Anthia then took over with the execution - such a lovely lady, she took the time to walk us through the itinerary and logistics over a call, patiently answered all our questions, and was available throughout our trip on WhatsApp in case we had any questions or needed any help. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip, which was tailor-made to our requirements, and all logistics went smoothly no doubt to their attention to detail!

Excellent help planning our trip

We worked with a fabulous individual named Chris who helped us come up with an itinerary for our family to visit Athens and Crete, found all the people to make it happen, and then helped us navigate things when we were in country. We've always planned our trips ourselves, but ...

I was having a hard time getting everything just right, so it was so helpful to have someone local who knew what we needed to do beyond going to the Acropolis, how to space out our travel destinations os our young kids didn't get too tired, and which were the best beaches in the areas we knew we wanted to go to. I highly recommend this experience and will definitely be looking for similar help on future trips.

The best personalized travel team I have ever used

Alexandros and the team were fantastic! They provided personalized service to understand who we were and what we wanted to do while in Greece. They then made all the arrangements, hotels, transfers, tours, travel, and recommendations for self-guided tours. They checked in with us during the trip to ensure we ...

were happy. They even were proactive when the heat would close tours early, ensuring we were in early and with few issues. All of this was done within our budget! I would recommend them to anyone!

Great Experience

Our trip was planned very meticulously by Anthia and Alexandros! We visited Athens, Mykonos and Santorini. Anthia was very efficient, prompt, accommodating and accessible! The trip worked flawlessly and we enjoyed every bit of it! All the pickups were very much on time and the tour guides were extremely knowledgeable ...

Packing in Peloponnese and Athens

I had a very positive experience in planning and enjoying this trip. 1. Planning- Elena always got back to me within 24 hours with specific responses to my questions and concerns. She made recommendations for places and experiences that wouldn't have be on my radar. I welcomed the face-to-face final ...

communication before we left to iron out any details and make me feel more confident that this was the real deal so to speak. The trip itself- Every local guide was on time and exactly where they said they were going to be. At no time was there any confusion or deviation from what was communicated in the itinerary. The guides were friendly and informative. "Hog," our driver was fabulous and so much more than just an excellent and safe driver. He was intelligent, interesting, and genuine and added so much to our experience about understanding modern Greece, and had great recommendations for local restaurants.. The hotels and breakfasts were great and a few times we got treated with upgrades. The planning of the itinerary was very thoughtful. At first glance, I thought that touring some of the sites so late in the afternoon seemed odd, but clearly it allowed for us to take our time getting from place to place as well as beat the heat. We were well taken care from beginning to end, which allowed us to pack in so many sites, so much learning and fun without getting overwhelmed.

A Trip of a Lifetime!

My wife and I wanted to see Greece from a Cultural point of view, but also to experience the people and everyday Greek life. We didn't want to have to set up the whole trip ourselves, as we were busy and tired after a tough year. My wife stumbled upon ...

Greece Insiders online. We told Elena what we wanted and within a couple of days, she'd put together a pretty much perfect trip. With a few small WAS the perfect trip! We had to do nothing but turn up! A wonderful driver, the best guides we could ask for, and nice hotels, made for the trip of a lifetime. One of the most important things for me, was the fact that Elena and Lydia made themselves available to troubleshoot any issues, at any time. The comfort of knowing that anything that might go wrong would be handled for us...was priceless! Thanks to Elena and Lydia, for a fantastic experience!!

10 Days in Greece

planned - from airport transports, flights to/from Santorini, rental car, tour guides, etc. We loved the fact that this trip was tailored to our personal interests. It was so easy to plan as Chris communicated with us directly. Anytime we had a question, we got a quick reply. We especially enjoyed driving through the Peloponnese Region - the scenery was gorgeous along the coast, and the pace was much more relaxed than Athens. We stayed in 3 different towns and 3 very different hotels, but all were superb! We had never planned a trip quite like this, but Greek Insiders and Chris made it easy and manageable. The trip itinerary was so detailed - it was like having our own personal tour guide with us.

Fantastic Greece Trip

Elena from Greece Insiders arranged a 16 day trip for my wife and I. We spent time in Athens, Naxos, Milos and Santorini. Elena booked hotels, arranged transportation, and booked guides/tours. She even had drivers arranged for transportation to and from airports and ferries. All of the guides were for ...

just us and were fantastic—food tour in Athens, Acropolis, Mt Zas hike and small villages tours on Naxos, etc. Hotels and all transportation were great.
