Sorry I have taken so long in giving you feedback on our Oct-Nov Greek vacation. We had a wonderful time. All of the arrangements went smoothly. We were met each time at the airports and at hotel for transfers. George was especially helpful at Nikos-Takis with ideas for dinner and places to go on Rodos. In the old town, we felt like we were in a long ago century. Dreams was unforgettable. We arrived after dark at what looked like a vacant lot off of the road. No hotel in sight and the view past the lot was dark, of course. We were shown our "hotel room," villa was more like it. In the morning with bright sunlight, the view out of the suite was breathtaking. Greek breakfast on white tablecloth while in robes and slippers was heavenly. We thought we'd gone to heaven.
Athens Gate was also very nice. The room was clean, pleasant, with nice view of Temple of Zeus. Views from the top were spectacular, enjoyed with a wonderful breakfast. The location was perfect for walking tours.
Initially, you seemed pessimistic that we would not enjoy this trip so much due to being past the summer season. We never wanted for good weather. Everything we wished to see was open and not crowded. We never had in mind hours laying on a warm beach as a reason to go to Greece, so we did not miss anything.
Two wonderful tavernas come to mind that you might recommend to your clients going to Santorini. Mataxi Mas had the best Saganaki we've ever tried. Dimitri's in Oia down by the marina was like dining at a well kept secret. Wonderful grilled fish right along the water. Capt. Ted of Santorini Sailing recommended both. We also highly recommend his sunset cruise.
Thanks for putting this trip together. I can think of nothing we would have done differently.
