Don and Joy Rogers Vacation: Athens, Mainland Greece Private Tour & Crete
Hello Mina and other staff at Travelive......

We have been so busy since we got back from our Greek vacation, but I just wanted to take the time to let you know how pleased we were with our vacation.

First of all---THANKS a million for Takis!! He was great and was the perfect guide for us. Not too much information, just enough and he was always able to answer any questions that we had. He allowed us time where we wanted extra time and he was ready to move on when we were ready.

All of our accommodations were perfect---each of our hotel rooms had a balcony with an incredible view (one of our requests) and the staff at each hotel was very accommodating and eager to make everything perfect. I think we must of had the best room at each of the hotels--I can't imagine it being any better! At Hotel Europa (the one in Olympia) the owner was in the lobby when we arrived, he immediately recognized Takis and although a bus was checking in he (the owner) personally got our room key and we didn't have to wait. The front desk staff and daily housekeeping staff at Elounda Mare were exceptionally friendly and our "bungalow" was amazing--so amazing that we left the resort only once for about 3 hours! HAHA!! I could sit on that balcony forever--it is so peaceful and the view was like no other! We were very tired from the mainland tours so Crete was the perfect ending of the vacation-- perfect for doing nothing, just enjoying the quiet and the time away from our stressful jobs. The Athens airport hotel was awesome also---I know that sounds crazy, but we couldn't believe how quiet the rooms were.

I really believe October is the time to visit Greece---most of our photos have few people in the background and we didn't have to wait for anything anywhere! We are so glad that we decided to do the private tour instead of bus tours--we saw more of what we were interested in and didn't feel like we were wasting any of our precious vacation time. Thanks also to your office for changing our flight from Crete back to Athens (we got an earlier flight so we would have more time to sleep for our international flight the next morning). It was really nice to know that your office is "right there" in case we needed anything, but it was even more wonderful that we didn't need anything the entire 10 days---Not one thing would I have changed! Thanks to you, your office and all of your hotel affiliates for a perfect vacation!

I will send another email with a link to our photos--we took over 700.
