They were super helpful from the beginning to end!

We just returned from our trip to Greece. They were super helpful from the beginning to end. Flights, hotels, ferries, excursions, and taxis were all booked for us. When we arrived to Athens, Renata met with us and gave us vouchers & maps and answered all our questions.
