Amy Hartman


Christos was a wonderful resource for us. We all became very fond of him, and are extremely grateful for his many kindnesses and infinite patience with our large group.

Lana Hillard


So much to see, so little time. All the locations visited were awesome. Hard to grasp places and artifacts dating B.C. Great food everywhere and drives through countryside were beautiful.

Ellen Waters


We loved Nafplio, a perfect place to spend 2 weeks...we loved exploring the peninsula, had a GRAND time!

Dale and Gail Laninga


Living in old city of Nafplio. Experiencing the Greek way of life, the markets (where we shopped for fresh food to do some of our own cooking), the church bells ringing, the tavernas, the bakery to get fresh bread and pastries every day, great food, drinks overlooking the harbor, laughs with Christos ("of course"). In summary your taking care of the basics e.g. flight, housing and car and leaving the rest to us. One morning I was out walking and saw the arrival of the many many people from the Holland American cruise ship coming in, boarding buses, and I was SO thankful I wasn't part of that.

Saundra and Bob Crum


We felt we were part of the town of Nafplio by the end of our trip. Even started driving like a Greek! The driving and parking by everyone was fascinating! But, it works! Amazing how you can squeeze your car into the tiniest space! Under our apartment was a shoe store (my husband would always walk by fast!) Finally, in the second week, I had to stop in and bought some sandals...after that, everyday the owner would come out to greet us with "good morning" and I would answer "kalimera" and he would's those little things that make these trips special!

Tom & Caroline Bridges


I can't think of a thing I'd have changed--Nafplio won our hearts.

Nancy Cook


The town food, and people were all wonderful.

Ellen Bonn


After a pleasant cocktail hour we left the apartment at sundown, with the sun reflecting off the terrazzo, and headed toward the waterfront in search of a restaurant for ‘locals.’ We came upon a very unassuming place, filled with a boisterous group from the northern part of Greece, and they encouraged us to join them. (The Greeks are among the friendliest people I've ever encountered!) The next few hours were filled with song, dance, good food, much laughter, the acting out of a pretend wedding--and my husband and I were in the middle of it all. Nafplio will live forever in our travel memories.

William Russell


The whole trip was really wonderful. There is so much to see and do it is hard to fit it all into two weeks.

Suzanne Love


Nafplio was lovely, great for relaxing, people watching, ice coffee, and jewelry shopping.

Leslie Sears


The apartment was so great with the balconies and big kitchen. I loved going to the markets and buying produce and cheese and really eating in the Mediterranean style.

Barbara A Martin


What a treat to feel you can become part of a country, even if only for a short time!

Greece was the trip of a lifetime. It was everything we expected and more.
