We have travelled to many parts of the world and I have taken pride in my ability to do all of our own travel arrangements. I am quite experienced in researching accommodations, transportation, restaurants and various attractions. We had heard good things about Carole’s services though, and we were pretty busy at the time, so we decided to see what her organization could do for our family vacation (4 adults, 2 children). She was absolutely amazing! Not only were the accommodations in Athens top-notch and exactly what we needed, she ensured that the rest of our trip through Greece was effortless (on our part) and was designed with the specific needs of our family in mind. The transportation arrangements were flawless, with safe, friendly and efficient drivers. The tour guides were all wonderful. Although we had been to Athens before, Carole managed to introduce us to restaurants we would never have found otherwise. We never worried about being stuck or having a problem, anywhere. Her knowledgable competent and friendly staff were always there when we needed. Carole herself gave us numerous heads up tips that avoided many of the mistakes we would have made on our own. We could choose freely to follow her suggestions for an afternoon or a day, or head off on our own. One of the best stress-free family vacations we have ever experienced.

Carole and Basil helped us plan the most amazing trip ever. Not only did they find quaint and authentic places for us to stay, they included things to do around the area that weren’t your typical touristy experiences. They connected us to personal guides that were truly experts in their field and drivers who made our trip that much more fun with conversation and laughs. Many of the people and places we never would’ve found on our own. And, all tailored to our personal tastes. It was truly one of the best trips we’ve ever taken, thanks to their help! If you decide to visit Greece, do yourself a favor and talk to Carole and Basil at Real Greece. You won’t regret it!

It is very easy to give a five-star review to Real Greece Travel. Our trip to Athens was perfect thanks to the help of Carole and Basil. Our accommodations were comfortable and beautiful and every detail was taken care of. Carole and Basil recommended areas to visit and places to eat and every one was spectacular. They also provided a ton of information that made getting around Athens so much easier. They clearly love Greece, and love helping others make the most of their travel. I have recommended their services to friends and they also had a wonderful experience. You cannot go wrong with Real Greece Travel.

Carole and Basil were extremely helpful in our trip to Greece last fall. We needed accommodations, a driver and tour expertise-Carole provided all of the above. She and Basil have a keen sense of what Americans want and need when traveling in Greece and they deliver. I would highly recommend using their services when planning a trip to Greece. Oopa!

Why did I wait so long to visit Greece? The ‘Flavors of the Greek Islands’ tour with the owners, Carole & Basil blew me away in every sense and I am already looking to plan my next trip with them. Prior to landing in Greece, I was provided with an incredibly thorough itinerary, so much so, that I could already taste what was to come (or so I thought!). Each day was filled with jaw dropping history, incredible mouthwatering food, and gorgeous environs. All conducted and beautifully orchestrated by the thoughtful experts of Real Greece Travel. This was truly the trip of a lifetime, and it won’t be my last!
