What they've said...
WONDERFUL... what a magical and beautiful island. Our escort was AWESOME... one of our best on the whole trip.
She was so informative and a great personality.
This was definitely one of my favorite stops we will definitely be back for a much longer stay.
Athens: Seeing the Acropolis was just amazing and words and pictures can not explain it.
Thanks again for everything and our experience is one we will never forget. It was very nice to meet you in person as well. I know I will personally be doing business with you again soon for clients... and hopefully for me again as well.
I want to thank you sincerely for your time and kindness toward me. You are just so nice! Thank you for all your attention, all the smiles, all the visits you gave me. This is far above what I deserve and I am really grateful to all of you.
Christos, Dimitris and Apostolos: you have really proved to me that you are great friends. I hope to be able to prove you that you can also count on me and that I deserve your friendship.
Such good people deserve to succeed! I know your company will soon become a big name in Greece. Remember your true friend from Arizona and come to visit me one of these days. 🙂
I have attached a copy of the comments from Cedric Pettigrew concerning his trip to Greece, May 8 – 13. It appears that the group enjoyed their sailing on the Aegean Sea and travels through the southern portion of Greece.
Thank you for the outstanding service provide by Joannas during their stay in Athens.
I thank you personally, for dealing cooperatively and creatively with the special itinerary changes I had requested. The tour members were exhausted at the end of the trip--but they all praised the fact that they had seen much more than they originally expected.
In every way, it was a fabulous experience and I thank you for all your attentions and all you did to make it so!
Wishing you every joy and blessing, in the coming Feast of the Birth of our Lord!
On our recent trip to Greece, our tour guide was Costas Tsevas. Without exception, all agreed how absolutely outstanding Costas was from every angle: civilizations and their history; Biblical and secular understanding of the past and also of present day situations.
Costas was phenomenal! He made our visit to the different sites so incredible. I wish we could have recorded all that he shared. He was very approachable and professional, polite and courteous, respectful and friendly. Simply stated: he is the best!
Many thanks! Again, the trip was great! Exceptional!! Everybody agrees!!
Have a wonderful w/e. God bless you!
The Yiannis and Apostoles (sp?) served us beyond the call of duty. You have a fine organization and would be happy to see you again when we return to Greece.
I will also share this report with the people at Educational Opportunities in Lakeland, Florida.
We thank you, and pray for blessings upon you, your families and you business.
the trip was great and I have already sent your contact info onto all my fellow agents to use you guys.
I will def. be using your services in the future again as well.
Have a great holiday to all of you guys in the office... you were truly wonderful to work with!
We spoke to Mr. Milkman and Ms. Nachinoff. They had a wonderful time and were very pleased with the guides, accommodations, etc. They were especially pleased with the upgrade to a suite in Athens. Thank you to all of you for the high level of service you have given these clients and our two groups.
Here is some feed back from Fran Nikles about her group's experiences in Istanbul and Athens.
"We met in the lobby each morning with our Istanbul tour guide, Omer, who was the best! He was so knowledgeable and patient answering our many questions. The driver was also very nice. Several in the group were interested in rugs and on Tuesday, we had some time and Omer took us to a rug showroom. Omer, obviously knew the owner, and they put on a great show of rugs for us, along with the hot apple tea. Several did buy. While we were waiting for sales to be completed, we all managed to purchase gyros from the corner vender; yummy!
Athens: I was not on this tour; I did escort the group off the ship and met with Meena, tour guide and her driver. The group said the tour and guide were very good. All and all they enjoyed their day in Athens.
Our European season is winding down, so we may not have much business for you in the next six months. But whatever business we have in the future, we will process through you.
We first found your agency because you sent us an Easter card in an e-mail. It pays to reach out to the travel community, you never know who will respond. Continued success.
I like our philosophy and your eagerness to “do your best”. Too bad we are not in the same city. We could work very well together. Thank you for working on the proposal you plan to send me. Kali sou mera
I am sure Dave has sent you an e-mail letting you know we made it home safe and a little tired. I have been thinking of all the special times we had in Greece. I can't thankyou enough for taking such good care of us. We all felt safe knowing our wonderful tour guides were watching out for us. Thank you for the special times especially the great coffee and dessert at Santorini (loved that place) and our dinner out in Athens was fabulous!!!!By the way my husband loved the vase I brought home from Santorini. Again, thank for the time you spent with us shopping and helping us find some deals. I was impressed at your young age of your maturity, your strong sense of family and your strong faith. I will have many treasured memories of this trip. If you get a chance would you be able to send me information on the religious tours you do. Thanks again. You are welcome to visit and stay with us if you travel to Canada.
We all returned back to the states safe and sound and had a wonderful trip. Many of the pastors said they were very pleased with the services received while in Greece and felt the highlights were Meteora, Philippi and Lydia's Baptismal site (river). I would have to agree with them.
Please let Aliki know once again, what a terrific job she did guiding us and how pleased the groups and I were with the services and professionalism she provided to all of us. Once again, thank you to you and the whole Expedition Team for a job well done!
Thank you again and a very Warm regards
I received a letter from St Mary’s College and they wanted me to thank you for the hospitality you showed on the trip. They had a fantastic time and would like to book again next year.
I have been meaning to get back to you on what a fabulous experience Expedition and Travel arranged for our group.
We have been getting in trip summary's and all of them have been excellent.
We will definitely be using your services for our future groups to Greece.
Once again thank you!
I got a feed back from the teachers and they say the Greece tour was fantastic. Thank you very much indeed. I look forward to working with you more often.
Many thanks to you for doing such a good job with our group, which was appreciated by everyone. Bob SIlverman was very happy with your services as was Judge Klein. I will await your ideas on the itinerary that I proposed to you.
Hope you had a great weekend! Our groups have nothing but wonderful words to share about how well they were taken care of by Expedition and Travel.
Thanks for all your hard work and dedication. You are very much appreciated on this end.
First of all, thank you again for the way in which all of our charter operations were handled for our November charter. My Greek family came through with flying colors. I am so proud of you and Christos and the way in which your new venture is coming along.
I appreciate your assistance and look forward to hearing from you soon.
Thank you for the welcome home! I did have a nice welcome from the family and everyone sends their best to you 🙂
I want to thank you, Dimitris and Apostolos again for your a job well done for our November charter. Other than the little mix-up on Hydra for those 6 pax, everything worked extremely well. I am so grateful for all you and your company did to make this charter go as well as it it.
In my honest estimation, this was in fact, the best charter ever. I will begin working on the spring sailing next week and will keep you advised.
I hope Alice and the kids are doing well and that you will also have the chance to get some rest.
All the best to you!
Good to have been with you. Sorry to have missed saying goodbye. Again appreciated all of the services of the team and look forward to the next visit.
The Travel Agent is SOOO appreciative of you taking care of this for her Passengers.
Once again, the Premium service we have come to expect (and enjoy!) when dealing with you.
Thanks for your extra care for this group!
First let me thank you for your wonderful hospitality and service extended to me during my brief stay in Athens. It was great to meet you and spend quality time together. You are all most gracious and professional.
Thank you for the kindness of your heart. I hope you had a wonderful Easter as well.
I spoke to many of the group leaders who have traveled on the Journeys of Paul tour with Expedition and Travel. They have all said wonderful things about how well the tour went and the guide's knowledge of St. Paul was a wonderful touch. Many have done this tour before and said they got more talk of Greek history than they did of St. Paul.
So thank you for all the detail you put into your business. It is much appreciated.
God Bless you and your family,
It was a great pleasure meeting you all. I look forward to working with you in the future. You guys are a great team! Thank you so much for your hospitality and friendship.
Thanks for the memory... it was GREAT!
All the best,
You guys are the best. I really appreciate what you have done for us, you really make us look good.
Thank you so much my friend
From our arrival in Athens to our travels to Mykonos and Santorini, we never could have created a trip like this without the help of Expedition and Travel! The common theme among our entire group, including some very experienced travellers, was that our trip to Greece was the ‘trip of a lifetime.
Thanks to everyone at Ex&T. All of our friends and family are already looking forward to our return trip, and this time I expect it will be an even larger group. We look forward to re-visiting with all the friends we made in Greece!
Thanks for everything.”
I trust that you are well in the midst of your busy season. Our trip to Greece in March was wonderful, as you both are. I, too, value our friendship and look forward to being together many times in the years to come.
I will do better at staying in touch in the future.
Grace and peace,
We want to thank all of you for the great services you offered our group. You were great. The tour director Marianna, the tour guides Eva and Loula, the bus driver Nikos!
