      Fantastic trip.
      By Bridget H for An Adventure in Greek Mythology on Apr 30, 2024
      We had a great time with a great group of ladies! Anna, our guide was wonderful - she had a wealth of knowledge, was caring, and friendly. The sites we saw were fantastic, the food was great, and the hotels were great, except for a few issues I had at the Stanley. Power went out in my room just as I stepped out of the shower the first night we were there. I was too tired to address it until morning. They did fix it in a timely manner. The second time we stayed there the noise level was so bad I only got 2 hours sleep. The Galaxy Hotel Iraklio was my favorite: it was the nicest, quiet, most comfortable room , and the amenities were the best. Tammi and Morgana did a fabulous job planning, and gave us so many helpful tips to prepare for the trip.
