John & Sarah, USA – Family Vacation: Athens, Santorini, Naxos and Mykonos
Oh, my goodness, Panos, thank you so much for the incredible trip plans you made for my husband and daughter... they had an amazing time. They said every detail of the trip was perfect, even down to a notification when one of the ferry was going to be late! You did a fantastic job with all the choices so needless to say if and when we come back to Greece, we will definitely use your services again, and I have told other people about your company too! It was a fabulous experience working with you!
Thank you again so so much. Yassoo!
Mayra & Rene, USA - Honeymoon: Aegean Romantic Escape
Thank you!! Our trip was beyond amazing! Wow wow wow!!! We fell in love with Greece! We can’t wait to go back and take our families!
We also want to retire in Greece! We can’t say enough great things about Greece and our wonderful trip! We loved the historical sites of Athens, the upbeat and active vibes of Mykonos, the romantic sunsets and views in Santorini, and the wonderful scenery and delicious food in Crete! Thank you for helping us book this dream come true honeymoon for us! It was 100 times better than we ever imagined!
Thank you for all the tips and suggestions while we were there and helping us book the activities during our trip, we wouldn’t have had such an awesome trip without your help! Thank you again! Attached are some pictures of our trip, as you can see we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! :)
Richard & Pam, USA - Vacation: Athens Mykonos and Santorini
I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, but I was swamped the day we returned and I'm just catching up before I leave on a business trip Monday. Just let me say Pam and I enjoyed our trip to Greece immensely.
The scenery, food, accommodations and, most of all, the Greek people make this one of our favorite trips ever. Everything you arranged was provided smoothly and seamlessly with no problems over 14 days.
We really enjoyed Athens and our guide, Vicky was especially knowledgeable and gave us wonderful insights of Greek history and prepared us for the Acropolis and the terrific museum. Highly recommended! We actually found Athens to be a wonderful city and enjoyed walking around and taking in the culture and everyday life. Our hotel was situated very well and the rooftop views amazing.
Santorini was as spectacular and breathtaking as we expected. Pictures simply do not do it justice. The Alta Mare was a great choice and we loved our little cave room with the outside jacuzzi and spent many hours just relaxing and sipping wine admiring our view.
George never overlooked any detail and made us feel at home and welcomed at all times. He arranged a sunset cruise which was one of the highlights of our trip.
The ship and crew were terrific, the beaches and waters excellent and the barbecue was first class. We made some very fast friends with a United Nations of people from China to Peru to Australia and New Zealand. We also enjoyed the beautiful restaurant at the Andronis and used the spa several times. The only downside for us was the amount of stairs to get to and from our room. When we go back, maybe we can find a room a little closer to the top, but I minor complaint when judging our overall satisfaction.
The high speed boat to Mykonos was fine and the Petasos was fantastic. We had a great room close to everything and enjoyed the pool area, spa and the many restaurants at the beach a short walk away. We had a great evening at one of the restaurants with Greek dancing that was a lot of fun. Even the Sofitel at the airport was very nice and they took great care of us. Talk about convenient to the airport!
All in all, a very enjoyable experience and very professionally handled by you and your team at Travelive.
Thanks again for the great trip.
George, Alicia, Nicolaos & Nareeya, Zambia - Vacation: Athens & Santorini
Thank you for the mail and may I say the trip was unforgettable, simply amazing, thank you very much.
Attached are just a few photos, it was indeed fantastic and the engagement so perfect.
I will be sure to get in touch with you for any future travel plans as this was definitely only the beginning.
Keilah & Michael, USA – Honeymoon: Greece & Italy
Michael and I would like to say thank you again for your help in planning our honeymoon. We had a trip of a lifetime and you had an integral part in that!
Laura & Alan, USA - Vacation: Greece & Italy
Nico and Isidora,
We want to thank you both for the outstanding service Travelive offered for our Greece and Italy trip. We travel very often, and have been many places but it's the first time we had such an amazing experience. From the time we left JFK airport until we arrived back, everything went smoothly. The drivers, the hotels, the tours.. everything was top of the line - and your service was excellent. Even when we needed an English speaking dentist, you found one just a block from our hotel and fit the appointment into a small window of time. I want to thank you again for the exceptional service.
All the hotels we stayed at were stunning. Excellent accommodations and first rate staff with impeccable service. Our favorite was the Hotel Grande Bretagne in Athens.
Our tour guide in Athens was outstanding. Knowledgeable, friendly engaging and personable. We enjoyed every moment of the tour.
Our driver in Greece was also exceptional. He made us feel at ease the minute we got in his car.
It is always a shot in the dark when you find a company through a search on Google. Alan was skeptical when I first presented the itinerary and idea to him about using your services. What we got far exceeded our expectations. We thank you both for making everything so easy and excellent. Thank you.
Laura & Alan
Melba, Charles, July & Bill, USA - Vacation: Greek Dream
Just wanted to thank you for the good planning and advice for our trip to Greece. Our accommodations were good. We especially liked Mykonos Palace. The staff there was awesome, especially the manager. She went beyond the call to help us in every way. Our guide in Athens to the Acropolis, whose first name was Anna, could not have been more knowledgeable or helpful. She was very kind and assisted us in every way needed. The suggestion from you to get a private tour was so right. We moved right through the crowds with our able guide and watched the large groups dealing with all sorts of confusion. Our hotel in Santorini was so convenient to everything. We walked to restaurants and shopping and enjoyed the pool. All of the transfers went like clockwork and the drivers were very courteous.
If we can ever use your services again, it would be with the utmost confidence.
Brianna & Daniel, USA – Mykonos and Santorini Babymoon
Thank you so much for reaching out. I have been meaning to write to you. Our trip was absolutely incredible! It was truly a trip of a lifetime. Everything was so perfect and we felt a sense of relief knowing that you and your colleagues at Travelive took care of every little detail for us. Both hotels were amazing! At the Mykonos Grand we met other honeymooners or anniversary goers from around the world. The staff was kind and courteous and catered to our every need. From buffing our sunglasses, to the cold towels by the pool and fresh sorbet they really made you feel like a star. They even greeted us every morning asking us how we slept and made sure to make a point of saying that we should come back once our baby is born in October. I LOVED the hotel and to be honest, we only went into the town of Mykonos for a little while since we had everything we wanted right there at the hotel. The bus service that takes hotel customers from the hotel to the town was wonderful and we greatly appreciate this service. I do wish though that it ran in the afternoon in addition to the evening. Since I am pregnant, we were not going out partying it down at night so the bus schedule was sometimes not in line with our schedule and activities we wanted to partake in. (Read more)
Jim & Whitney, USA – Honeymoon: Hellenic Beauty
I've been meaning to thank you for a while now. Our honeymoon was amazing and all the logistics were perfect and extremely easy. We even got upgraded rooms both in Mykonos and Santorini. Thank you and everyone else involved for making it such a care free adventure!
Jim and Whitney
Mara & Barbara, USA – Vacation: Aegean Escape
I have wanted to go to Greece for as long as I can remember. So I decided to treat myself for my birthday this year. I've traveled to Europe before and planned everything myself, but not really knowing much about Greece and wanting the trip to be perfect, I sought out the professionals.
Nico is the person that helped me. He was so helpful and patient. I pretty much just gave him the dates we wanted to travel and my budget, and he planned EVERYTHING. I can't tell you how much less stressed I was not having to worry about transportation. With all the flights and airport transfers already scheduled, we just had to show up! And the tours he picked out were just the perfect sample of each island we went to. And just the right amount of time at each destination.
Our historic tour of Athens and the Acropolis was so interesting and awe inspiring. On Santorini island the volcano and hot springs tour was great, our wine tour even better. Getting to taste new wines from a different part of the world and learn about them was awesome. Not to mention, the tour guide was hilarious AND informative. In Reythymno, on Crete island we learned all about Greek mythology and the origins of the Minoan people. Fascinating!
He even knew that free time was the best thing for us on Mykonos. We wandered the city each day and then came back to our hotel to sit on the porch and watch the sun set each day. It was beautiful. All the hotels were very nice and conveniently located. The first hotel and the last hotel both had birthday treats for me! Working in hospitality myself, it's those little things that make events in life memorable.
One of the most noticeable things though, was the kindness of the Greek people. Everywhere we went, anyone was willing to help and very patient. That obviously goes for all the staff members who took care of us during our stay. I can't say enough about them! It felt like we were guests in their home. They are proud of their country and you can see it.
I don't usually like to travel to the same place twice, but this might be worth an encore. Thank you so much Nico!
Stephanie & Jeff, USA – Honeymoon: Hellenic Beauty
I have been meaning to tell you about the trip. Life is just so busy!
So everything was amazing, perfect, and so smooth. The two days in Athens was perfect. We had a great time! The history was so great to see. The walking tour lady was so nice and informative. The flight to Mykonos was seamless. The two days on Mykonos was perfect. Little Venice was so romantic and nice to walk around at night. The sunset was beautiful !!! The high speed boat was a great way to get to Santorini, we got to see a couple of different islands. And thank you for the first class, that was a treat!
In Santorini we did a wine tour. The guy was so much fun, very informative, and made for a great evening! We had a WONDERFUL time on the sunset cruise. The only thing is we didn't know you can jump in the water and swim. So I went in a dress and jeff in nice clothes. He was able to jump in with shorts on, I didn't. The hotel didn't mention it to use either, who knows! But it was SOOOO much fun, romantic, and beautiful sunset! Good food too! We went to one of the beaches in Santorini, wow it was hot! We rented a car and drove around... (Read more)
Farrah & David, USA – Honeymoon: Hellenic Beauty
I just want to personally thank you for all you did in our recent trip to Greece (Athens, Mykonos and Santorini) You did an exceptional job in arranging such wonderful and stress-free post-honeymoon for us. From the start, with my initial consultation you have been so patient with me by answering my million questions.
My husband and I are very pleased and impressed with everything. From airport transfers and pick-ups to the hotels you booked for us. Acropolis Select was the perfect location for us in Athens since its only a few minutes' walk to almost all the attractions. The business class ferry accommodation from Mykonos to Santorini was a wonderful surprise. Mykonos Palace was wonderful as well, as it is only a few steps to the beach. It was getting better and better each location. Rocabella was amazing. Location was perfect, I didn't even want to leave at one point. The view of the sunset was outstanding. The staff at all the hotels were wonderful and we got a few freebies and even got upgraded in Sofitel in Athens. Thank you also for the list of recommendations you provided. We swam to almost all the beaches you mentioned in Mykonos. We had the best meal at Sunset Taverna in Ammoudi Bay and the sunset cruise was one of the highlights of our trip. It was indeed an experience of a lifetime. My husband even said he wants to go back every year (for someone who travels a lot and try not to go to the same place twice, that means so much).
Thank you again John and Travelive. I already recommended you to my friends who saw my pictures. WE will surely book with you again, hopefully Italy next. =)
Alexandria & Family, USA – Vacation: Aegean Escape
Just wanted to write a quick email to you to let you know we had an absolutely amazing vacation! We loved every city and every hotel we went to. Our tour guide in Athens, Nikolas, was wonderful and so knowledgeable. The Acropolis was incredible. Our hotel in Mykonos (The Petassos) was our favorite out of all the hotels we stayed at. We are sure to return there in the future. We had so much fun beach hopping and experiencing the Mykonos party scene at Super Paradise Beach. Naxos was so relaxing and had the most beautiful beaches along with one of the cutest port towns to walk around. Santorini was absolutely breathtaking. The photos just don't do it justice. You truly have to see it in person to appreciate it. Our private catamaran ride around Santorini was probably the highlight of our trip. The crew was so kind and attentive and the boat was great. We loved swimming in the hot springs and snorkeling in the crystal clear water. Then Crete was the perfect way to end our vacation. Staying at the Blue Palace Resort and Spa was the perfect way to relax and pamper ourselves before heading home. All of our transfers were seamless except for our ride from the Santorini port to our hotel. Our ride got a bit messed up and was therefore delayed a little while. This did not put a damper on our trip in any way. Other than that one small thing everything about our trip was fantastic. We want to thank you and your whole team for helping us plan and put together this once in a lifetime experience. We will definitely use Travelive again for future vacations.

Micah & Mervin, Singapore – Honeymoon: Hellenic Beauty
Just wanted to say thank you for helping us plan and arrange our dream holiday :)
We had a very memorable experience and we definitely enjoyed every city we've been to. All our hotels were awesome! Service of everyone including the transfers were superb!
Perhaps just one unpleasant experience was the boat transfer from Mykonos to Santorini, it was delayed and a bit of a chaos... Although that didn't spoil a thing.
Thank you so much for being part of our unforgettable vacation, you made it happen :)
Will contact you again for our next year's adventure!
Have a nice day!
Linda & Family, USA – Vacation: Aegean Escape
I just wanted to thank you very much for planning and coordinating such a wonderful trip for my family! Everything went very smoothly, all of the transfers were on time and everyone was so nice. The service at each of the places we stayed was exceptional. Effie, our tour guide in Athens, shared so much information with us, and was just great. She also recommended Strofi for dinner, and we had a view of the Parthenon from our table!
We loved Casa Vitae, and visited several beaches while there; Elefonisi was absolutely the best beach I have ever been to. The location of the hotel made it very easy to walk to a nice restaurant, and the girls were able to have some time on their own as well... (Read more)
Liliane & Rudy, USA - Vacation: Hellenic Beauty Anniversary
We are home and settling in. I wanted to contact you and say thank you for helping us plan a special anniversary trip. We enjoyed Greece so much, especially the people, culture, sights and of course the food! For our anniversary, we had dinner overlooking the sea at sunset.
All transfers and tours were professionally organized and efficient. Our tour guide in Athens, Marilena, was wonderful, the wine tour and catamaran trip in Santorini were highlights of our trip. Our favorite island was Santorini, the village of Oia and the best hotel was the Mykonos Grand. We were so impressed with the facilities, service, and the welcoming nature of the staff.
At the Andronis, Nadia really helped smooth over the initial confusion with the room. They were very accommodating and did compensate for the disruption of having to wait 4 hours for a room and then to move the next day again. Thank you for assisting there, the initial impression was not the best especially at a 5 star boutique hotel. I do think that if we had not vocalized our frustration, we would not have been offered what we did receive. No matter, the trip was great. The next time I would go back to Santorini and maybe Crete or Rhodes.
I am attaching a couple of photos. We will be in touch for our next trip and will definitely recommend Travelive.
Liliane and Rudy
Ryan & Zoe, Canada – Vacation: Greek Wonders
I'm a little overdue in my official thank you. For the second time in as many years, Travelive and You have done an exceptional job with our Holiday in Greece. THANK YOU! Zoë and I have completely fallen in love with not only Greece as a beautiful vista, but with the Greek people as well (not to mention the food).
At the top of our list is Crete, and The Blue Palace. It feels like a second home, and we plan to spend many Mays or Septembers basking in its glory.
As you had heard, Claire massively upgraded us to an Island Luxury suite, and luxury it was. I'm finding it hard to put to words our complete satisfaction with The Blue Palace. The best I can do is return yet again.
Athens Gate was great as well. I would recommend suite 701 to everybody. The wrap around deck is superb. The restaurant on top was excellent in both view and cuisine. The Staff top notch. John, the doorman from Montreal, was a treat. The young waiter at breakfast was very good. Not only for the friendly service, but the first aid I received after I smashed my finger in the door, and bled all over the restaurant!
I think it will be our Athens home base in the future.
We've discussed the Sheraton, but I have to say Rhodes was very cool. Next time I think we'll stay in Lindos, or right in the old town.
Lastly, I'd like to mention Thassos, our transfer driver in Athens. He is remarkable at what he does. We asked if it were possible for him to be "Our" driver for all the Athens trips and he was able to oblige. He is I very knowledgeable and kind man.
Thank you for making lifelong memories.
See you in 2015!
Sharon & Carmelita, Canada – Vacation: Greek Dream
We're baaaackk!! Hey Tia! Back to reality :( We've been back for a few days now but I have just finally been able to upload our pics (which I will send to you by separate email).
First of all, both Carmelita and I would like to truly thank you and your team for arranging such a wonderful, stress-free, enjoyable and most memorable holiday... from the moment I clicked onto your website and filled in the info of our travel needs right down to our plane landing back home...everything worked out wonderfully! This trip was seriously one we both will never forget! (Read more...)
Renee & Jason, USA - Honeymoon: Aegean Romantic Escape
I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for putting together such an amazing honeymoon for us! It was absolutely perfect! Transferring between locations was so easy and stress free, and all of the hotels exceeded our expectations!
Maria, our travel guide in Athens, was amazing! She was so knowledgeable & passionate about Greek history that it made the 4 hours seem to fly by! Also, thank you for recommending that we add-on the 1/2 day sunset cruise in Santorini. That was truly one of the highlights of our trip!
I think that our overall favorite experience was staying at Avli in Crete. Not only was the hotel, restaurant and town beautiful and picturesque, but the staff at Avli was so incredibly hospitable that they made us feel like we were long-time friends in town for a visit!
You truly helped us make this an experience one that we will never forget! We have already told many of our friends and family that they definitely need to go through you if/when they decide to travel to Greece!
Thank you soooo much! I'll be posting pics on your facebook page soon!
Amanda & Alex, USA - Honeymoon: Aegean Elegance
We had such an amazing time! Greece is absolutely beautiful. We are thinking about planning a trip to Italy and of course we will book with you!
The Hotel in Oia was gorgeous and the view was breathtaking. Thank you again for the upgrade. Athens was very beautiful as well and we loved our tour guide! She was very knowledgeable and we had a great time with her. Crete was a lot of fun and a lot bigger than we expected! We rented a car for 2 days and found some great beaches! The scenery was very nice.
All of our transfers went smoothly. We were very impressed with Travelive.
Thank you and we look forward to working with you again!
Amanda and Alex
Jay & Lisa, USA – Honeymoon: Aegean Elegance
I want to thank you for going . . . . above and beyond! I did not have to think that much because you did all the careful planning. From scheduling the driver pick-up, to the private tour guide.(She was an amazing tour guide too) In fact, we were bumped up from all the other tour groups and had easier access compared to the other people visiting the archeological sites in Athens!
This trip made us feel like someone was wiping our mouths for us. We felt so pampered and cared for in Athens and Santorini. And by the way, we were bumped up from Andronis Alta Mare to the Exclusive Boutique. As soon as we arrived, the staff welcomed us and gave us desert along with a bottle of white wine. They treated us with respect. Even when you showed me the itinerary, I looked at the reviews of the hotels you set us up in - - - - and all those reviews were stellar. In fact Adronis Luxury Hotel ranks the top of the list in Trip Advisor as the best place to stay in Santorini.
Again, we did not have to wait in line for anything. It seems that people gave us top priority and treated us with respect throughout the whole trip.
In the beginning, I was skeptical from booking online - - - however - - - Faye - - - - you added the human touch and an eye for details. Now all our friends and family are asking about this "Travelive"
Thanks for making a memorable trip and honeymoon!
Renee & James, USA – Vacation: Greek Dream and Aegean Cruise
My husband and I just wanted to thank you (and your whole team) for a truly wonderful experience of our trip to Greece.
Everything went off without a hitch and was just perfect- all of our transfers were timely, personable and so nice to have coordinated; our tour guide in Athens was simply wonderful- we learned so much we never would have without having a dedicated person and it was great to have the individual attention vs. the large group tours; the hotels in Athens (where we were upgraded to a wrap around balcony!), Mykonos (had a HUGE deck) and Santorini (another great patio and truly amazing views) were all outstanding in terms of service and atmosphere. The cruise ship was a very efficient way to get around and see many islands in a short time and embarking and disembarking in our preferred locations was simple and effective.
We really appreciate all of your efforts in the back and forth of our trip planning and will gladly recommend you and Travelive to anyone we know looking to plan a wonderful vacation to Greece (and of course, when we plan our return trip!).
Thanks very much,
Jim & Karen USA- Vacation: Aegean Elegance
We are safely back and had a very nice time. We especially liked the hotel you selected for us in Crete (Avili), a beautiful and unique property. On Santorini we ended up renting a motorboat for several days to get out on the water each day as we loved the sunset cruise you arranged and wanted to spend the days on the water. Our guide in Athens was great. I am recommending you to a number of my friends and you should be getting some calls in the next year.
Lorna, Charmine, and Kathleen, USA: Athens, Santorini and Rhodes
I've been trying to find the time to send you a note of thanks but there aren't enough hours in the day. Before I continue....Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. My family and I had the most glorious time in Greece. Thank you for making it happen. Our hotels just kept getting better each time we changed locations. That was nice. We loved the Acropolis Select (tight space). The location was perfect. We walked into Plaka with no problem. Walked to our favorite cafe and pastry shop every afternoon with no problem. Our tour guide was beyond belief. She was kind, patient, and very informative but, most of all......she made the ruins come alive for us. Obviously, she is passionate about what she does. She was dramatic when she told us about the history of the Gods. We enjoyed having her for our personal guide. She told us about her favorite pastry shop. Boy was it good. You should use her as much as you can.
Santorini was magnificent. The island was very dry but filled with a lot of history. We did many of the things you had on the list. We visited the Black Beach, the Red Beach, the Winery and took the local bus to Oia. Shopping there was fun and the food was great. Next time I'd love to stay on the hill. The Sphinx had the best food in Fira. Thanks for recommending that one. The Gyros were also good in Fira. They made me vegetarian gyros. Can you believe that? The El Greco Resort was beautiful and most of all the service was fantastic. The thing that got to us the most was the walking. We walked everyday from the resort up the hill to the town of Fira. The only negative thing about going between islands was having to go back to Athens before each new destination. We were not told that we were limited to a certain amount of kilos on Aegean Airlines. We ended up paying for a lot of overweight.
The Island of Rhodes was the best. We were greeted by Barbara shortly after our arrival at the Resort. She laid out a map of the island and told us what there was to do in Rhodes. We all thought that was a nice touch. We did not set anything up with her because we kept getting information from other guest in the hotel. We did a great deal of things on our own. It was very easy to get a taxi to take us around. We took a tour to Turkey. That was not what we thought it was going to be. Felt as if we took the ferry to go shopping at the mall....... The Old Town was great. We met some really special people there. We shopped 5 out of the 7 days there. We purchased LOTS of jewelry, household items, and gifts for our friends. OK. The best thing for us on Rhodes was the authentic Greek food. We found a place off the beaten path that came with many surprises. The food was so good that for days after I returned to the States, my taste buds could not be satisfied. LE Gourmet Restaurant. Ran by Maria and her husband. Wide selection of Greek food, courteous staff and great prices. We needed a wheel barrel to cart us away from the table every night. Maria and her daughter made us feel right at home. The thing that makes this restaurant so special was the way in which Maria would make the entire dining room interacts with one another. It was great. By the end of your meal you would know the people at the surrounding tables. There was lots of laughter in the place. Where there is good food you find happy people. The staff at the Sheraton recommended we try Le Gourmet. We went there for dinner every night we were on the island.
Here are a few photos from our wonderful time in Greece. As you know, photos can never really tell the story. One has to be there…
Thank you for making this all happen for us. It was the trip of a lifetime. We all have so many wonderful memories from Greece. I hope that you will be with Travelive when we head to Tuscany in 2013.
Marina, Thanks again for all you did for my Mom, sister, and myself.
John & Jill, USA – Anniversary : Greek Dream
John and I want to thank you for planning an amazing trip for our 25th Anniversary. The hotels were fabulous and your recommendations of things to do and places to eat were wonderful! We have the greatest trust in Travelive and would love to work with you again in the future!
John and Jill DePaola
