TESTIMONIALS

An unforgettable honeymoon!!!!!!

Petros was an absolute delight to work with! Incredibly helpful to create our dream honeymoon plan in Santorini and Mykonos with a truly 5 star experience. He was highly responsive, negotiated great prices, and set up all the details so everything was incredibly smooth for us while we were traveling.

From luxury car transfers to first class ferry tickets between the islands, we continuously said how much we appreciated Petros and all his hard work throughout our trip! Santorini’s Andronis Luxury Suites in Oia and Mykonos Grand were the 2 hotels he arranged for us – HIGHLY recommend staying there for a truly 5 star experience.

THANK YOU SO MUCH PETROS for ALL you did for us! An unforgettable honeymoon!!!!!!

It couldn't have been more perfect.

We used Hellenic Holidays for our honeymoon and it couldn’t have been more perfect. We chose a 2-week trip to Athens, Crete, Santorini and Mykonos. From the first conversation with Petros, I knew we were going to be in good hands. Hotels, private transportation, private tours, travel between islands, meals, excursions, etc. Everything was planned perfectly. We also had many days where there was nothing planned, which allowed us to explore the islands on our own time. Each hotel Petros picked for us was perfect. The day trips he planned for us (private walking tour of Athens, Santorini wine tour, Santorini dinner cruise) were perfect! Every single detail was perfect of our trip was perfect. Petros planned our dream honeymoon and we would recommend Hellenic Holidays to anyone who wants to go to Greece.

You would be foolish not to go with Hellenic Holidays for your next Greek Holiday.

If you are looking for a stress-free, personalized, romantic, luxurious getaway to Greece, then you need to book with Petros from Hellenic Holidays.

My husband and I traveled to Greece in early August shortly after our wedding. Our planning for traveling to Greece occurred when the U.S.’s media coverage of the country’s financial crisis was at its height. While this caused my husband to develop some second thoughts, Petros was not deterred and rightly assured we would be just fine. When we arrived in mainland Greece and made our travels through the Cyclades, we could not detect even a hint of economic turmoil, and our trip was not affected at all.

Each of the locations Petros arranged for us to stay were breathtaking, gorgeous, and luxurious. Upon our arrival at each location, a bottle of champagne/wine and seasonal fruits/sweets welcomed us, courtesy of Petros. The personal touch made us feel warm and at home. Many of the staff we met actually knew Petros, evidence of relationships formed over mutual respect and frequent business with each other. When we ran into a bit of trouble with one of our afternoon transfers (due to an unexpected airline strike out of Petros’ control), we called Petros around 6AM eastern time, and within 5 to 10 minutes, he was able to arrange alternative transportation to our destination. This scenario showed us Petros’ above-and-beyond work ethic.

We were very impressed by our trip’s smoothness, and enjoyed not needing to worry about checking into transfer flights or ferries –Petros completed all this for us remotely! While planning this trip, we desired something exciting, worthwhile, and memorable. Travelling to Greece exceeded every expectation we had for this honeymoon, thanks to Petros.

If you are looking for a personal yet professional travel agent, who knows Greece like the back side of his hand, then you would be foolish not to go with Hellenic Holidays for your next Greek Holiday.
