Trips to Greece - Vacation Tour Packages & Holiday Greek Island Vacations by Antelope Travel Agency

We wanted to express to you what a wonderful time we had on our recent honeymoon through Athens, Crete, Santorini, and Mikonos (14/Apr-29/Apr).
Though we were sad to leave, we had the vacation of our lifetime and have photos and memories of beautiful landscapes and hotels, with wonderful experiences with locals and very accommodating hotel staff alike.

We were particularly pleased with the efforts of our agent, Anthony Alagiah, who went above and beyond to make our experience the best it could be. He was thorough in providing a selection of different plans that would fit our budget, and he continued to work with us to tweak those plans to our satisfaction. The timing of the pick-ups and transports allowed us to travel with ease and comfort, and we were offered a variety of fascinating guided tour options. When we expressed dissatisfaction with one of our hotels during our final stay in Mikonos, Anthony responded immediately and managed to switch us to a wonderful hotel and a much better situation within an hour of receiving our email. This timely and professional reaction on Anthony's part really perfected the end of our trip, and we couldn't be more grateful. We hope to make it back to Greece again someday, and in the meantime, we will refer any interested friends to your company with highest recommendations for Anthony and your team.

Thank you and best regards,

Brandon Vaden and Peter Janiak
Dear Konstantinos and Amalia,

We wanted to thank you for all your help putting our trip back on track. We had a very good time despite the circumstances. We really appreciated the extra effort to make sure we didn't just sit around in our hotel room. We enjoyed Meteora very much (except it was the only day that it was cloudy, foggy, and rainy in our whole week). The 3 island tour was fun, not Santorini but at least we got close to the water!!

Thank you again for your services- we really appreciated it. - oh, and our driver to and from the airport..(Peter?) He was wonderful- great, great person.

Hope you all have joyous holidays in the upcoming weeks,


I will send a better Thank You and put something on Trip Advisor as well but I wanted to know that you did a fabulous job on our vacation. Perfect. It was exactly what my mother was interested in...and it came off incredibly did a fabulous job...everything worked like clockwork and the hotels and their staffs were incredible...everyting was great.
Thank you so so much. My mother had not had a vacation in 20 years or so and this was excellent. Santorini was also great...and of course the Volcano View Hotel. Don't hesitate to recommend that to anyone...the setting, the rooms, and the staff...the staff was incredibly good...5 stars...I don't know how they could have been better. A true high water mark for service.

Thank you for everything.

Good Afternoon Amalia,

I just wanted to let you know that our trip was absolutely AWESOME!!
Everything went perfectly - you had us extremely organized! The hotels were wonderful and the service was incredible. The trip was beyond anything we could have imagined!! Thank you so much for everything and all the best!

P.S. Thanks so much for sending Dave's shirt to Santorini!
Hi Konstantinos,

Thank you again for arranging a wonderful trip to Greece. I am so glad I found your agency on the internet.
I had received quotes and corresponded with approximately 8 Greek travel agencies before deciding to go with Antelope Travel.
The two largest, and best known, agencies kept trying to force us into one of their package deals, and whenever we asked a specific question, told us to just look at their website. They certainly were not customer oriented. You were always there to answer all our questions and put together the exact type of vacation that we wanted. You never pressured us and gave us time to think things out and sometimes ask the same question more than once. You were always polite and informative, quick to respond, and happy to do business with us. I would definitely have you plan another trip for me in the future.

Dear Anthony,

We are writing to you to thank you for all your help to solve the flight problems. Fortunately the Olympic flight was excellent and we are already in Paris enjoying a cooler weather than in Greece. We would like to thank you once again for the organisation of all the tour, which we enjoyed very much. If any friend of us thinks in coming to Greece we will surely tell them to contact you to book through your agency.

Best regards

Hello Amalia,

I want to thank you for the fabulous honeymoon we had in Greece, exceeded all prior expectations. All the places were fantastic, people were incredible, the wines amazing and the food no words to describe. We felt like Greece is the country to live and feel.

Thank you again and see you soon because we need to discover more.

We have now settled back into our normal life in wintry Melbourne but wishing that we were still lying on the beach in warm and sunny Naxos. A big thank you to you for planning our tour of Greece and the Islands.

The itinerary that you organised was perfect and you included everything that was on our wish list. We were met on time by courteous drivers and local tour Agents at each location and felt very welcome and comfortable throughout the entire holiday.

The Athenian Callirhoe hotel in Athens was perfectly situated within walking distance of the Acropolis and Plaka. The Hotel was very comfortable with tastefully decorated modern rooms, a great view of the city and Acropolis from the rooftop terrace and a sumptuous breakfast.

Our 4 day Classical Tour of mainland Greece was great, we especially enjoyed the Meteora Monasteries and even though it was raining the mist gave the whole area a mystical and ethereal quality. The accommodation provided for this tour was excellent and buffet breakfast and dinner included was an added bonus. Your choice of Islands was perfect , each one offering very different experiences.

Mykonos was bustling and busy with waterfront cafes and narrow winding streets through quaint villages. The Mykonos Bay Hotel was in a great position ,away from, but within easy walking distance of, the town and on a sandy cove with excellent swimming beach. Santorini was spectacular and you chose exactly the right accommodation . The Ira Hotel was intimate and in an excellent position on the Caldera. The walk from the Hotel to town along the Caldera was one of the most beautiful we have seen. Our room had a spectacular view of the volcano and the owners Kiki and Manos were warm, welcoming and accommodating.

And last of all gorgeous Naxos. The perfect place to rest and unwind before returning home. The newly built Aegean Palace Hotel is just 50 meters from a beautiful white sandy beach with crystal clear blue water plus the hotel has a huge swimming pool and recreational facilities all within manicured lawns and flower beds. Every aspect of our holiday was planned meticulously from transfers, to ferries, to flights and hotels. The whole trip was worry and stress free and excellent value. We appreciated that you were available for contact at all times should we have encountered any difficulties and we appreciated your personal contact with us on our arrival in Athens. We will certainly recommend your agency to our friends and of course avail ourselves of your services whenever we return to Greece.

Warm regards,

Michele and Phillip Casey

I just wanted to send you a quick note that I very much enjoyed the tour to Delphi and Meteora this week.
I travel a lot and this was one of the best tours I have ever been one. Extremely well-organized with excellent guides, both for the Delphi leg and also when I then switched buses to join the Meteora tour. Excellent!
Thank you for helping to organise my trip and a big thanks to Chatours for the excellent tour.

Our trip is now over and I thought that I would give you some feed back.
Everything was just perfect!!! I am sorry that we didn't get to meet you in Athens. We enjoyed Athens immensely and the room upgrade was terrific. Every pick-up was on time and the drivers were very friendly, helpful and polite. We were very happy with our hotels and their locations. Paros was a dream come true. Although it was a fair way from the main town, we loved the hotel, beach and seclusion. We really re-charged our batteries at Paros. Also we met up with Josh & his wife (young American couple). They pretty much did the same trip as us and you organised them as well. They also were very happy with everything. The islands were even above expectation in their beauty and scenery. Thank you very much for organising this trip for us. It was the most stress-free time of our trip.
I will certainly tell everyone we know just how wonderful and beautiful your country is and encourage them to contact you.
Next time we are over your way, I will contact you again.
Once again, thanks for a wonderful holiday.

Marcy and I want to thank you for all of your hard work, guidance, and influence while we traveled through the Greek Isles and Athens. Everything went according to plan and we made all of our connections, with great thanks to you, with no errors and no misses. The cars you set up and the transportation was outstanding. It made each portion of our trip worry free.
I don't know how to thank you for setting up the tour with Dimitris for our travels around Athens. He is outstanding. Extremely well spoken and while traveling provided great conversation about the history of Athens and its independence. It was wonderful to hear the story from such a proud patriot as we passed by some of the lesser known landmarks on our way to the monumental locations.
I would heartily recommend Dimitris as your number 1 go to man for any English speaking travelers.
He was delightful, intelligent, and very effective at navigating through the city, and made sure all of our needs were addressed. His ability to change direction based on his clients choices was just another reason why we had chosen to take the private tour instead of the bus. Dimitris did not fail in pleasing both of us during our time together.
Additionally - Your assistance at Spondi was sparkling. They seated us at the premiere table where we were the first to make our appearance for the evening. As a result, the 8PM reservation was absolutely perfect. We were fawned over by the wait staff and Sommelier. His recommendations for wine selections to go with the meal was perfect, and by his own recommendation, saved us money while assuring the best match for each of the chef's selections.
As wonderful as this was - we were thrilled to find our bill only required us to pay for the wine - I don't know how you pulled of a private tasting menu for us, and maybe I don't want to know. I do know that you managed to make a fabulous trip even more wonderful - and we have a keepsake from Spondi that we will cherish - The private tasting menu designed for us.
Just Outstanding.
Thank you for all of your help - Our trip would not nearly have been as delightful without your well versed competent, and outstanding service and attention to detail.

Thank you again,

Dave and Marcy Waite

We just wanted to write and thank you for an excellent time. Everything went according to plan and all accomodations and connections were wonderful. I have already suggested you to a couple headed that way. They own property there and may use you to book accomodations/connections in the islands. I hope to visit again someday and will remember what great service you provided.
Kind Regards,
David and Crystal James
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for putting together a wonderful holiday package for my wife and daughter. They had a most exceptional experience. You and your staff were so very helpful and professional. I look forward to planning another Grecian adventure. Next time, it's my son and I who will be traveling, and I am determined to make our turn just as memorable.
Thanks again for everything!
My sister-in-law and her husband just came back from their travel to Mykonos and Santorini. They had great time and couldn't praise enough the arrangement you had for them and the selection of the hotels.
I am an airline captain for many years now and well aware of the tourism business. I wish to thank you for the professional way you have arranged for everything.
I will recommend your services to all of our friends in Canada and Israel.

Best regards

We have just returned yesterday after our holiday in Europe. I have written to let you know how outstanding and memorable our trip to Greece was and how impressed we were with your company.
From the very beginning from the time we arrived in Athens to our departure in Santorini your company was friendly, prompt, professional and made our stay at all times in your country one of comfort and enjoyment.
The accomodation was superb and five star, your staff are fantastic - from the drivers who transported us, to the travel agency staff who met us and made sure we were at all times made aware of pick ups and transfers - I wish to thank you all.
Please be aware I have already lauded your praise to all and will continue to do so - so be prepared for an onslaught of Aussies from down under.
Thank you once again, Konstaninos and we will definitely return - our only complaint was we couldnt stay longer,
Sue and Jay Ramsay

We came back this morning. I am still groggy because of lack of sleep and jetlag. We had a wonderful trip. All your arrangements went like clockwork; the punctuality was amazing.
Please convey my thanks to your colleagues Carolina in Mykonos and Piero in Santorini.
You chose the right hotels in all three places-they were well located and close to Metro and /or bus stops.This was very important for us oldies.The hotels were comfortable and the staff was friendly.
We tried the local food quite a few times-it is quite like Indian food.
A big thanks to you for everything.

We were visiting friends last weekend and fondly remembered all of your VERY FINE travel work for our month-long 2006 summer trip to Greece. We loved all of your arrangements, including the private transfers, Santorini's Xenones Filotera Hotel (stunning!) you suggested, our land tours (most of all the Four Day Classical Tour; wish we could have stayed longer in Meteora), and the extremely flexible and easy emails we exchanged with you from the US during planning. We thank you very much, and recommend you to all of our friends who are thinking of visiting Greece. We often comment on the warmth and kindness of the Greek people, whether they're Athenians, taxi or bus drivers, or a group of gents sitting on the lip of a town-centered fountain. To anyone considering visiting Naxos, DO make the time! We very much enjoyed the hotel you suggested, the public KTEL bus we jumped on for a day and much more. Not knowing exactly what lay ahead, stayed on until the last top, enjoying the acrobatic ride, incredible scenery, small scenic villages and the bus's end destination of Apollonas. Before we and the driver made the return trip about three hours after arrival, we had thoroughly enjoyed our delightful lunch at a beachside taverna, its shaded sunbeds, wonderful swimming, a vigorous walk up through the town, another cocktail, and more swimming.

Many, many thanks and all best wishes,
Deirdre and Nancy

I want to say a big thankyou for your terrific arrangements for my holiday in Athens! Everything was fantastic, especially the taxi driver!
You said his name was Paul, so after a few bits of conversation, he said his name was Bill! (Or Vassilis, if I want to really be correct!) He was a real asset and I've included a lovely picture from the airport!
Johns Hotel was great, likewise the Acropolis View. Staff were helpful and friendly. So your arrangements worked very well indeed and we had a relaxing break before the concert in Athens.
I expect you saw some of the press and TV coverage, but even if you don't particularly like her as a singer, she has made such a great effort for the past 50 years, advertising Greece aroung the world. I had a seat in the very front level with the stage.
It was just wonderful, even tho' it was all in Greek, but I'm used to that. She received a medal from the Athens Mayor earilier that day, then the 3 mayors of Athens, Paris and Berlin were in the front row, along with your primeminister Karamanlis!
After the show, I got backstage with a couple of my friends from the UK and she saw me, said hello with kisses and a hug! She really is a wonderful person.

So with thanks to you, my trip to Athens was perfect. Except the lack of pavements and kerbs for wheelchairs! Greece has a long way to go, but at least it's made a start!

Please use any of this as positive comments for your agency, cos' you were terrific in helping me to make my dreamn come true, to be at Nana's last concert in Athens!

I will send a card from the UK, shortly!
Regards, to Bill as well !

Amy and I have safely returned from our honeymoon in Europe and we just wanted to thank you so much for helping to plan our vacation.
Our time in Greece was so wonderful. The hotels in Athens (Hera), Mykonos (Petasos Beach) and Santorini (Filotera) were perfect for our needs.
Of course, the Petasos Beach resort was our favorite and we took advantage of the spa, pools and close proximity to Platis Gialos. The half-day tour of the Acropolis in Athens was just enough to get a taste of the city.
In addition, we were so glad to have timely transportation arranged for all of our connections.
Your help is truly appreciated you and we will definitely recommend your agency to friends and family who are considering trips to Greece.

I am back in Costa Rica after a wonderfultrip on the Greek islands. Everything went well, according to schedule.
The hotels we stayed at were great, the transfers wetre always on time etc. But the greatest thing about the whole trip was the people. Greeks are one of the kindest people we've ever met. We want to thank you for a wonderful vacation, and be sure we will recommend your services to anybody who plans a trip to Greece.
My wife and I are planning to go back next year, with our three sons but probably in the month of September. Again thanks a lot for your services and your interest in that everything worked out fine.

Best regards,

You were right, we needn't have worried. Both locations (Myconian Abassador and Uranos Traditional Houses) were wonderful, each in their own way.

The Myconian upgraded us to a suite with a private pool, which was more wonderful. While I must admit that I was at first disappointed with Uranos, I quickly came to appreciate the combination of view, location, tranquility, and excellent staff. We both agreed that Uranos was an excellent choice. And we appreciate the Acropolis view room at the Cypria, something which we could never get before.

Even your ferry bookings inspire our appreciation. Whether by luck or by design, our boats were among the few that sailed on September 20 and 24. We met very many people who were stranded by ferry cancellations, but everything went well for us. We both thank you for your recommendations -- we greatly enjoyed our trip and we shall refer back to you for any future trips to Greece. We think Crete may be next, but not for a year or so.
When my son and I were planning a trip to Athens and Istanbul, I was very fortunate to have found Antelope Travel.

Konstantinos contacted me quickly and, based on our preferences, was able to provide options for hotels and tours in both cities, and transportation between the two. The accomodations were excellent and the tours were great.

Everything was provided for us (especially helpful were the airport transfers!) which made our lives much easier. We had an excellent holiday!
We had a wonderful time. Every place was special. Your offices in Mikonos and Santorini were very helpful, the accommodations wonderful, and Crete was a wonderful surprise. I look forward to being able to spend more time there one day and add other islands as well. In hindsight, the only changes I would have made involved timing of portions of the trip so we had more time in Crete and a less demanding return schedule.

(We awoke 4:30 am in Aghios Nicolaos to drive back to Heraklion airport for flight out and with delays in US for our return, we had a 29 hours of being up and traveling.) We look forward to doing it again and seeing more of your wonderful country and enjoying the hospitality.

Thanks for all you did in making it a special time for us.
I just wanted to send you a short note expressing my wife's and my collective appreciation for your support and assistance over the last few weeks.
As you know, when we encountered the issues caused by Lupe's passport not having the required validity period acceptable to the Greek authorities, it appeared that all was going to be lost as far as our holiday, but through your perseverance, flexibility, and on-going communication efforts, not only were we able to save the holidays, we were able to enjoy them to the extreme.
Everything you set-up and coordinated (and rebooked) was executed flawlessly (the itineraries, the transfers, the hotel bookings) and I am pleased to say that all the recommendations relative to hotels and people assisting us exceeded expectations. And a nice closing touch to the trip was the opportunity to meet you on the last day of our stay. In closing, this has been our second trip to Greece in the last four years and I know it won't be our last, so I look forward to having your expertise and leadership guide us to an even greater experience the next time around.

Best Regards,
Richard and Lupe Hartzell
Thank you very much for all your work. The hotel selections were wonderful. I don't know what they were thinking about the hotel on Crete when the reviewers said it was bad.
That was the nicest one. The only trouble we had was with the flight I booked from London to Athens and back through Easy Jet. I would steer away from them. Athenian Air was wonderful, the most comfortable flights and the high speed boat was a great experience. We needed a rental car on Santorini, and got one. They were cheap to rent there. I will get some pictures sent to you later on this week.

Again, thank you,
Scott & Heather Hayes
I would like to thank you for all your help with my recent travels in Greece. Everything you planned for me went smoothly and on time. The hotels you chose were delightful. I appreciate all the suggestions you made. I enjoyed my time in your country.

We just wanted to let you know that the Delphi tour we booked through you was the highlight of our holiday in Greece. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the guide was excellent. Many thanks.

Kind regards,
Anna Mitman
Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our trip to Greece. People could not have been nicer and we had ideal weather throughout our journey. Your selection of accomodations provided us with the Greek experience. While the Hotel Avra in Rafina was very nice, it was quite a distance from the airport. You had suggested the hotel right at the airport which would have been convenient, but very expensive for the 8 hours we were in Athens before we had to be back to the airport.
Probably the Holiday Inn or similar a little closer in would have been fine, but I think you put us in Rafina because there was a good view and a town we could visit. In any event, things worked out fine. A few highlights: Meeting you. Meteora was unbelievable. The view of the Acropolis when we exited the Metro coming into Athens. Nick driving us around. Corinth Canal. Ancient Corinth. Delphi. The food. ATV driving in Mykonos.
Everything about Santorini. The view from our hotel in Oia was incredible! The streets in Iraklion, Crete. Knossos. Driving into the mountain villages of Crete. Chania - another spectacular hotel setting. Air and boat trips went perfect. For the women, it had to be the shopping. Shopped everywhere we went. If you need any references, Konstantinos, I would be glad to help out anyway I could.

Best wishes for a productive tourist season.

Greece offers it all.
We are home safe and sound. The trip was great with all the connections and transfers working out well. The only exception was on Mykonos where the taxi took us to the passenger only port to catch the ferry. Fortunately we were early enough and asked around to find out we should have been at the car ferry port to get the right ferry to Naxos. We quickly caught another taxi and made the ferry. The ferry from Santorini to Crete had mechanical problems so we had to stay a day longer in Santorini but your agent phoned us about the problem with the ferry and looked after all the changes necessary so everything went smoothly. The hotels were all good and the breakfasts good but the Sunrise in Santorini only had coffee, juice and toast for breakfast. All the rest had that plus eggs, cheese, meat, fruit and yoghurt. However the hotel itself was fine and close to the town centre. I would certainly recommend your company to any of our friends who were planning a Greek holiday. Thanks for all your help.

Nuestra experiencia a lo largo de Grecia estuvo cargada de una fascinacion indescriptible por los sitios visitados, por su gente, por la atencion recibida en cada uno de los hoteles donde nos alojamos, por el embrujo de sus islas y por el magnetismo que emana la historica ciudad de Atenas. Pero nada de esto hubiese sido posible de no haber contado con la atencion brindada por la empresa Antelope Travel en la persona de Konstantinos quien nos supo asesorar de la mejor manera a fin que nuestra estadia fuese todo lo placentera que fue, ademas de apoyarnos en todos los momentos en que lo requerimos Mil Gracias!!!

We are back from Greece and I would just like to thank you so very much for everything. The Hotels that you provided us with, were great as well as all the other arrangements like the Ferry tickets and directions on how to get to the hotels etc. We really enjoyed it a lot. All the hotels were quite impressive and up to standard except for Hotel Ibiscus. We could see that they were renovating, so I am sure that it will be sorted out anyway. Hotel sunrise, pireaus dream and allassia were very impressive. Thanks again and I have already told people about your great service and will keep on doing that! Hope to maybe do some travelling-business with you again in the future!

Kind Regards

Hi there, Our trip to Greece and the islands was wonderful. Thanks again for everything. I just wish we could have stayed longer especially in Santorini and Athens. I loved the city and didn't have enough time to explore. The coach tour was great and I'd recommend it to anyone coming to Greece. Unfortunately for me the driver of our bus crushed the frame of my suitcase forcing it into the mini bus. Other than that the holiday was perfect. I hope you have a great summer and anyone needing a travel agency in Greece I will refer to you.

Take care,
Margaret McRae
