WALKING ON THE GREEK ISLANDS August 2016

2.0

Walking on the Greek Islands

For me this trip was too laid back and the "walking" short and not challenging. On the positive side the food was very good and the weather brilliant!
Santorini was the highlight

Poor- she hadn't walked the trails and got lost on Naxos. Her communication skills were not good and too much was left to our memory on matters such as timing etc., Furthermore we didn't see her at all until breakfast on Day 2. We were just deposited at the hotel in Athens - there wasn't even a notice at the hotel and we had to ask check in staff at the hotel for information!

This is not like most Exodus walking holidays- the walking is no more than a stroll.

DO NOT TRAVEL WITH EF ULTIMATE BREAK May 2019

1.0

The Greek Islands

DO NOT TRAVEL WITH EF ULTIMATE BREAK. They do not value returning customers, they will not help you if your trip goes awry. I am really disappointed in this agency and how they handled my request for a partial refund for my trip due to things I missed because of their negligence. I just went on the Greek island getaway tour with them and spent $3000 to not get to visit the Parthenon and the acropolis when that was one of the most important things I was looking forward to. I tried to plan it on my own around the itinerary but was reassured we would visit it and we didn’t. Their customer service is awful and they don’t care whether you’ve been a customer for years. The whole trip was a disaster and they do not show any empathy for you. If you want to visit Greece you are better off planning it yourself. Don’t book with them. Read more

BEWARE OF WINGBUDDY!!!! September 2018

Greek Island Hopping

BEWARE- WINGBUDDY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND DISSAPEAR. THEY WILL NOT RESPOND TO CUSTOMERS IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS!!
My parents booked a vacation to Greece through Wingbuddy and unfortunately for them, due to poor weather conditions the ferry from Santorini to Athens was not in service. When they tried to contact their service provider Wingbuddy, (whom they paid a significant premium to book through) to find out where they were going to stay the additional night in Santorini and how they were going to get home, as they needed to return to Athens to catch their flight back to Toronto, they were unable to reach a representative. Despite numerous attempts to contact the emergency line that was provided to them prior to their trip- NO ONE RESPONDED OR GOT BACK TO THEM. As you can imagine they are in quite a panic, being in an international country, unsure if there is even enough capacity to stay another night in the hotel, or if they will make it back to Athens in time to catch their flight home. They were able to get a hold of their airline, who advised them that in the event that they missed their flight, they would need to repurchase the next flight out, with an estimated cost of $2,000-$4,000 per person. WINGBUDDY IS A DISGUSTING PROVIDER. THEY TOOK THEIR MONEY WITHOUT PROVIDING A FULL SERVICE AND WERE NOT AVAILABLE TO ASSIST IN AN EMERGENCY. I've since tried to call their office on my end, and I have not been able to get a hold of a representative, nor has anyone reached out to me/gotten back to me. Buyers, beware, WINGBUDDY IS TERRIBLE.

Additionally, they claim to set you up in 3-4.5 star hotels in Greece but this is not accurate. Completely dishonest and disgusting service.

Greek Island Escape

If I could leave zero stars I would. The ONLY thing that made this trip worth booking through affordable world was that we didn't have to worry about transportation. But wait, we did! I booked the Greece trip through them. It was 10 days from Athens, mykonos, santorini. Unfortunately two of our first days were completely travel days because our first layover was delayed which caused us to miss both flights and be stuck at both airports for 5+ hours each one. I knew ahead of time and notified affordable world because as their policy states, they can't do anything if anflight is delayed but will do their best to accommodate of we notify them ahead of time, which I did. When I did I was told to notify them when I got to next destination (Turkey). I said I wouldn't have service in Turkey and that is why I'm notifying them now. The representative ignored me and just said to see what happens. We ended up getting to our hotel at 4am when we had to be up at 6am for our tour of Athens. Our tour guide skipped several spots on the tour and left us to fend for ourselves to get back to hotel when we had no map or WiFi. Then on our ferries, I upgraded each one to VIP as I read many reviews that said to do so, and my husband and I were seated on the opposite side of the boat from each other! In what world does that make sense when you need to book it for two people on the first place that you don't even get seats next to each other on top of paying more for VIP?!?! This happened on EACH of the three ferries! Now affordable world ignores my messages and won't respond with anything other than they are sorry but it's not their fault. Please do yourself a favor and book with a more reputable company like gate 1 travel! Read more

WALKING ON THE GREEK ISLANDS August 2016

Walking on the Greek Islands

We have done several Exodus walking holidays and this one was disappointing in terms of the nature of the walking - three gentle strolls - and value for money - all the hotels were very basic.  We spent the following week on two other islands doing self guided walks and staying in far better accommodation for nearly half the price.  So in our opinion, this trip is only worth doing if you want to be in a group and/or want your travel arranged by a guide. 
Paros is relatively unspoilt.
Santorini was overrun by tourists but its beauty cannot be denied.

The group leader was helpful and pleasant.
