GREEK ISLAND ESCAPE

My daughter & I just returned from the Greek Island trip. It far exceeded our expectations! The length of time spent in each place was perfect. All tours were very informative & the guides were great. Our hotels were all very nice - Titainia in Athens, San Marco in Mykonos and Santorini Palace in Santorini. The Affordable World staff went out of their way to make everything run perfectly! I would highly recommend this tour.
