I am back in Australia. Arrived on 4 June 2012. Had a great holiday both in Greece and Turkey. The last day in Istanbul was 37degrees celsius, extremely warm and I arrived in Australia to a 10 degree wet and windy night. Since then I have been very sick. Probably the extremes in temperature. Every single day in Greece was nice and warm except my last afternoon in Athens - to my great disappointment. I wanted to take in a last very emotional trip around Athens but the wet weather was too much. That was the 18th of May. However, I am so glad I made the trip to Greece and will always remember all of it including the lovely people I met with a lot of affection. Marios and Patsy were almost like a son and a daughter. So warm and sweet.
As I mentioned earlier I will always recommend you to anybody.
Of all the hotels I stayed in (including Turkey) Athens Gate comes up with flying colours. It was a Home away from Home. The staff there were excellent. I should also say that Galaxy Hotel in Heraklion also was very good. Excellent service. But Athens Gate is No. 1.
My best wishes to all of you at Fantasy Travel and a very BIG THANK YOU
