    A perfect introduction to the best of Mainland Greece and its Archeology with Eva our excellent guide.

    A perfect introduction to the best archeological sites of Ancient Greece with an excellent group leader and archaeologist, our charming "travel Mamma" Eva.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The amazing age, state of preservation and artistic quality of the sites and artefacts in the museums. All brought to life and put into context by Eva's clear and lively descriptions and stories.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eva our archaeologist and group leader was the perfect guide giving us an excellent introduction to all the sites and their place in the story of Greece. She seemed to have endless enthusiasm and energy and answered all our questions to make sure we had a clear picture of each place and its stories. She made sure we had suggestions for good places to try delicious local food in every village or town we visited.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    If you are at all interested in Greek history and archeology book this trip now. Make sure you have non slip footwear as smooth limestone can be very slippery and there are lots of steps.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    We would love to do another trip covering more of Ancient Greek history especially with a guide as good as Eva.

    Whistlestop Tour!

    Eight days flashed past. We covered a lot of ground, but the travelling was carefully planned and broken up with site visits. Our Greek tour guide, Eva, provided valuable information about where to eat and what to do in free moments. More about her later...... The hotels were comfortable and central. The driver, Manolis, was steady and safe and the roads are much improved.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    All the sites are magical, even the Acropolis, overrun with tourists. Our favourites from the past, Delphi and Olympia were still amazing, but one of the special visits was to Eva's favourite, Ancient Messene. We'd hardly heard of it, but it's a wonderfully excavated site with a complete stadium and mausoleum- you can even see the basins that the athletes washed in. And even better, there were only half a dozen visitors apart from us! We can't decide whether to write to Mary Beard and tell her to get on out there and make a programme about it, or just let it remain a well-kept secret.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eva was brilliant. We did a similar trip some years ago, where the tour leader was British and just dealt with group logistics. At each site we picked up a local guide, some of whom were better than others. Eva combined both roles with enormous energy and enthusiasm. As a Greek graduate in archaeology she guided us round the sites, answering questions, pointing out details that we would not have been aware of, ensuring that we were up to scratch with the flow of Greek history. These discussions continued whilst we travelled. At the same time she was always aware of group dynamics, wanting to make sure that all eleven of us were having a good time.. There was a lot of laughter and enjoyment! By the end of our trip she must have been exhausted! Exodus, I hope you realise what an extraordinary resource you have in her. She certainly made our eight days memorable and educational (in a very good way!)

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take note of the accurate title of the trip - Highlights . As travellers now in our seventies we had visited almost all the sites over the last fifty years and the purpose of the holiday, for us, was as a refresher. For this, it was a brilliant itinerary. It would also be excellent as a taster if you had no experience of the sites and wanted an overview. But don't expect to linger! Also, be aware that two sites, the Acropolis and Delphi, are steep with very uneven surfaces. Make sure your shoes are up to it.

    Highlights of Ancient Greece

    Excellent trip covering a wonderful variety of Ancient archaeological sites in Athens and the Pelopponese. Good hotels throughout, friendly and competent guide and driver.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    This trip excelled because Elly, our archaeology guide stayed with us throughout and the depth of her knowledge was amazing. She made this trip with her explanations and dedication.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Lovely lady who worked constantly throughout and was very efficient in every way. Helpful and dependent.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The only criticism l have is that the flights at both ends of the trip made it necessary for me to book hotels at both ends in Heathrow and having to check in at 5 am does not start a holiday well. I was too tired to enjoy our first day in Athens.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I suggest that the group flights arrive in Athens on the first day afternoon and that the Athens tour takes place the following day when everyone has rested up. Also, the return flight to arrive back to UK earlier on final day.
