I have taken my family to several countries around the world to immerse ourselves in the culture and history of other areas. We have taken larger group tours, private tours, and also explored on our own by driving through other countries. This three day private tour with Nikos was one of our best experiences of all of the trips weve taken. For the price, this was a great value. Nikos was a very knowledgeable guide that had information prepared to teach us about the historical sites that we were going to visit. The tours were a perfect balance of him educating us and offering direction as well as taking a step back to allow us to have some time alone as a family to explore the actual sites themselves. With this private tour, we were able to see multiple areas of Greece that we would not have been able to see on our own. Nikos also did a great job of researching smaller villages and restaurants around the areas ahead of time so he knew which ones served delicious, authentic food and which ones may have been more commercialized to avoid. I felt that this really added to the experience of meeting more of the local folks in the area and enjoying the food and drink that they are accustomed to. In regards to accommodations, we had a great view within the apartment we stayed at and were very close to the village center to enjoy the restaurants and take ferries over to nearby islands. Nikos and his wife were very hospitable and were a pleasure to spend time with. I feel that my kids were able to learn a lot from this trip. Not just about the history of these areas in Greece, but about the culture and way of life. This was a wonderful experience and Id recommend using Nikos for any tour you take in Greece. In fact, we actually had him take us around Athens as well for two additional days because we were so impressed by him! Thanks so much for the wonderful time Nikos and we hope to get back and visit you and your wife soon! Steve

We had a great time. We liked very much seeing different highlights like Mycenae and Epidauro. Hydra was definitely magic. We enjoyed our time there so much that we decide to extend the stay to the last ferry. The apartments were very convenient and Yota amd Niko very welcoming, nice host and guide

Wonderful trip to some of Greece's less touristy places. Epidaurus is a extremely beautiful coastal city with many old buildings. The island of Hydra was almost too beautiful for words. Using donkeys to go up the steep inclines was an energy saver. Nikos, our guide loves to share his vast knowledge of Greece. He was very considerate and even shared his family with us.

We chose this tours to see a different aspect of Greece, the Pelopponese. We travelled in early March, which is considered to be out of season, but we had a very enjoyable time and were well looked after by our hosts, Nikos and Yota. The first day is perhaps a little too busy, we absolutely loved visiting Mycenae, nice early arrival before the big buses pulled in. we were able to wander the ruins and spend time in the wonderful museum on our own. Such a delight. We enjoyed our visit to Napflio, the views were stunning. We did climb down the 999 stairs from the Fort, but would advise anyone who suffers from vertigo to rethink that option. Lunch in a small local taverna was delicious, but the driving and the beautiful sunshine made us very tired before we reached Epidaurus, so we didn't really get a lot from that visit. For us that would have been better to visit on the way back to Athens. Our hosts home base at Ermioni was beautiful, we loved this town and the walks around it, through its small forest on the peninsular and the promenades. The apartment was very comfortable, and the self serve breakfast was adequate. Yota made some beautiful biscuits and supplied fresh crusty bread and cakes. We spent the afternoon of the second day on Hydra, which was mainly closed down, just a few coffee shops and a few souvenir shops open. We spent our time looking through the museum and walking long distances around the coastal paths. The next day we visited Spetses by ferry, what a difference, we loved Spetses. Lots of activity and beautiful clear water. Definely a holiday destination , especially for young families. The following day we returned to Athens, a pleasant scenic drive with Nikos making sure we saw as much of the coastline as possible. This was very much appreciated and we had the extra bonus of seeing a large ship pass through the Corinth Canal, as the road disappeared into the depths. A lovely few days on the Pelopponese and would suggest a worthwhile inclusion to any itinerary. Chris and Veronica Australian travellers in our 60's

I stumbled upon this trip when looking for things to do in Athens and the surrounding area. The experience was great as you are able to travel away from Athens and see a bit of the Greek countryside and more local areas. Nikos and Yota are wonderful hosts and will work to accommodate you in any way so you can get the most out of your trip. We opted for a home cook meal the first night we were there which cost extra but is well worth the money. Yota is an amazing cook and baker and we didn't find anywhere else that had baklava as good as hers. If you opt for the meal you will not go hungry we had leftovers for the next day. The islands are both beautiful. My personal favorite was Hydra. The apartment tree house has one bath and two bedrooms, one with a full bed and one with bunk beds. There is a full kitchen so you can cook if you want and the balcony view shows one side of Ermioni peninsula and the main port. Note: We traveled during the winter so we didn't swim--although the water was warm enough--and a number of restaurants and shops were closed because of the off season which was a little disappointing, but on the plus side there were few tourist around. At Epidaurus, for awhile we were the only 2 people in the theater until a small tour group showed up. Same for Mycenae. Something to think about if you are planning a trip.

Our hosts were very gracious and we had a wonderful time with them. Thank you so much for all of the great sights we saw. The home that we stayed in was very comfortable. We had a great selection of breakfast items in the refrigerator to choose from. We would definitely recommend this trip for other travelers.

The highlight of our holiday was our stay in Ermioni with Yota and Nikos. Their Greek hospitality was outstanding. We were given the opportunity to visit ancient ruins that the average tourist misses. The trips to Hydra and Spetses were magic. The swimming at the islands was beautiful in warm pristine waters and both islands had their own charm. The home cooking was delicious and Nikos and Yota really went out of their way to ensure that we received the full Greek experience. I cannot recommend this trip highly enough for anyone that wants to experience the real Greece.
