These are some of the testimonials from our happy clients

Apostolis and his staff have been praised as being among the most professional and reliable Travel agencies in all of Greece and the service they provide is as good or better than what you will find in Athens. With the wonders of modern communication there is no reason not to use them for all your travel needs in Greece since they have access to the same information, hotels and services as the agencies on the mainland. In fact Apostolis (or Laki as his friends call him), has the travel business in his blood. His father was the owner of one of the finest travel agencies in Athens and Laki has been a travel agent for most of his life. Lakis and Giorgos speak perfect English and you will find them to be the most relaxed, easy to work with and efficient travel agents in Greece.

Dear Jana,
Just a quick email to thank you for your kind assistance with the arrangements for our wonderful holiday in the Cyclades.
We absolutely loved Kimolos especially – such a lovely unspoilt island, with very few tourists to spoil it! Folegandros is very nice too, but busier and the beaches are not as nice as Kimolos. Santorini was far too touristy for us, so next time we will only stay one night there at the start and end of the holiday if we can.
Have a great summer!
Kind regards,

Hello Sandra,
My partner Sue and I would like to thank you for all your work behind the scenes with our reservations of hotels, rooms, ferries, trips, transfers for the wonderful holiday we spent in Athens, Sifnos, and Milos in June.
Everything worked smoothly and wonderfully well. We loved hotel Attalos in Athens and would no hesitate to stay there again as it was so convenient and and the view of the Acropolis from the roof bar was to die for.
The Speedrunner ferry was smooth and very modern. Sifnos was a beautiful, peaceful Greek island, the accommodation was in a lovely position and again we would not hesitate to visit Sifnos again and stay at this accommodation.
Milos was again a very different Greek island, and Petros at the Hotel Semiramis could not do enough for us and was very helpful and informative.
All in all it was a wonderful experience and we would have no hesitation in recommending Aegean Thesaurus to anyone and would certainly use your Travel Agency again. (On the ferry to Sifnos we met a wonderful Canadian couple who have been using your company for many years - they were staying in Vathy - they said exactly the same).

I wanted to write to you and thank you so very much for your help during our Greece trip.
You gave us an excellent itinerary at a good price, especially given our short time and all our expectations were met. The Galini hotel especially was just charming, and the ferry ride from Sifnos to Athens was a real experience. I saw your office in Sifnos, unfortunately it was after working hours otherwise I would have liked to come and see you and thank you personally !

A big thank you to you and your team for arranging our recent holiday to the Greek Islands of Syros, Kythnos and Kea. On our arrival at Sofitel Airport Hotel our ferry tickets for the next morning were waiting for us and all our transfers went very smoothly and to plan. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday on the 3 islands and the hotels were all first class.

Hopefully we will be able to plan another holiday to the Greek Islands and would definitely get Aegean Thesaurus to organise this for us. Thanks again for all your help.

Hi Jana,
We are in the Athens airport waiting to get our boarding passes for our next flight. I wanted to take a moment to tell you that we had a wonderful vacation in Greece! All accommodations on our trip were luxurious and beautiful, and every transfer was on time and highly professional. You did a wonderful job arranging everything.
My favorite hotel was definitely the Naxian Collection on Naxos with the owner, Maria, and now that their new location is open (Naxian on the Beach), I think you should consider having people stay there. Plaka beach is so beautiful!
The Electra Palace hotel and the Aigialos Hotel were both gorgeous and wonderful and in the perfect location in each city.
If I were to do it all over again, possibly the only thing I would do differently would be to stay somewhere else in Paros. I would probably choose a nice hotel in Naoussa or the Golden Beach Hotel. The Yria Resort was amazing, but felt very remote and it was very quiet. Sometimes we felt we were the only people there. With kids, being closer to some lively action would probably have been better. But I'm not complaining, just reflecting, because we loved Paros and the Yria, too.
Thank you for arranging such a perfect vacation for the 5 of us. I will happily share my itinerary with anyone who requests it.
It was fantastic.
All the best,

Hi Sandra
Thank you very much for organising our trip to Greece. We really enjoyed all our time in Greece and could easily have spent many more days or weeks there. Even though a couple of the hotels were overly optimistic in their interpretation of sea view your side of the organisation was faultless. We were very impressed that someone was always available to hear our concerns and more importantly to act on them. We find when travelling that small problems always arise but once they have been dealt with we immediately forget them and enjoy ourselves.
We would gladly use you again and would recommend you highly to anyone else contemplating a trip to Greece. If anyone asked how I would describe your services in a few words it would be ”excellent communication and faultless organisation”.
Once again many thanks to you and all your team.

Hi Barbara,
We are now home and I wanted to thank you and tell you that once again we had a wonderful holiday. Poros was a very nice island and we liked the Matrona apartments very much. We had a 1 bedroom apartment with a balcony with lovely view to the sea and the main town. There is a really nice outdoor garden area to sit with some beautiful flowers in front. The place was very clean and the owners were a very nice couple. We enjoyed fresh grapefruit from her tree. There is a great taverna across the street and a minimarket close-by. Kanali beach is only a 5 minute walk away with sunbeds, and two beach tavernas. I think you could recommend this place to others who have the same wishes we do. We liked the area and were glad we did not stay in the Askeli beach area which seemed too touristy for our tastes.
Yialos cottage was wonderful as always and Kostas is such a nice man.
The Divani and Aegeon beach hotel were great as always. All of our transfers went as planned.
I am happy to say that we do not get sea-sickness. As you told me it could be, our ride on the Superjet was very rough and many people were sick. We were 1 hour late getting to Pireaus because the boat went around Kythnos to avoid some winds getting to the port. It was an adventure for sure! We were told the winds reached 7 beaufort near Athens and the boat was grounded from going out again that day. You are wise to advise clients about this boat, but I was happy we decided to chance it to get to Athens sooner in the day.
Thanks again for everything and it was nice to see you again. Best wishes for you and your family and I look forward to speaking with you again for 2017.

Hope you're well.
It's been a week since we returned from Greece. What a wonderful vacation it was! Many times through the trip I was reminded of you, and how I wouldn't have come across some of the beautiful islands if it had not been for your suggestions! I'm glad we handpicked such gems as Sifnos, Milos and Folegandros. I loved Chora in Folegandros in particular with its canopied squares, there was such peace of mind! Also choosing May ahead of the tourist season was a great idea.
Thank you for each and everyone of your suggestions, your prompt response to all my questions and organising everything will brilliance! This was by far one of the best vacations I have ever had.
Wish you all the very best & looking forward to the next time around when either we or our friends plan a trip to Greece.

My wife and I travel to Europe from the US every year and I always plan my own driving and train trips except when I go to Greece. We have used Aegean Thesaurus twice for long multi island trips, this year and 3 years ago. They have put us in wonderful places and always have perfect transfers from the airports or ferries to wherever we are going. Both trips had unexpected problems due to strikes and schedule changes. No problem, but only because of this agent! We could not have survived on our own. Their prices for the total trip are not more than I could do by booking on my own and they put us in wonderful places. I WILL NEVER TRAVEL TO GREECE WITHOUT USING AEGEAN THESAURUS! I cannot give them enough praise.

Hello Jana.
WI hope you remember me. You helped my husband and I have the most wonderful vacation on Sifnos and in Athens this past summer. During the holidays our two kids came home from where they live (regrettably, not nearby) and we spent a lot of time going thru our pictures with them and talking about our magnificent experience in Greece. I realized, much to my chagrin, that I never thanked you for all you did for us. Our trip would simply not have been possible - or the great success it was - without your amazing assistance, courteousness, promptness in answering all my incessant questions, arrangements you made for us, suggestions you provided, and of course, helping to navigate the difficult - indeed, almost impossible! - process of getting my husband's suitcase to Sifnos, once we realized the airlines had sent it to Germany instead. If all goes well, we hope to return to Greece in the next year or two. Sifnos is a given. We'll also want to explore new places, too, and I hope we can work with you when the time comes.
Please accept my apologies for being so late in thanking you. You are truly a fine professional and I enjoyed every interaction I had with you. Each of your suggestions - from hotels to walking and driving tours - were superb!!
All the best to you and your family in 2016. Have a wonderful new year.

I can't thank you enough for your work, when we arrived in Sifnos we were warned of an impending ferry strike out of Piraeus, so were set up on a new ferry by your coworkers.

This was my third time using Aegean Thesaurus to help plan a wonderful trip to amazing Greece, and during all three times I was fortunate enough to visit the island of Sifnos, which I have come to love. The first time was in 2000 with my parents, sister, and brother. The second time was in 2005 with my wife for our honeymoon, and the third time was in June of this year, 2015, for our ten-year wedding anniversary together with our children! Each time the trip was planned by Giorgos Venios, and each time everything went smoothly, leaving us with fantastic memories to take home. Giorgos is truly passionate about his country, Greece, and of his home, Sifnos Island. For me, having somebody like Giorgos, whom you know you can trust and rely on, is extremely important when planning any trip, but what makes Giorgos so special is his love for his home, which transcends naturally to anyone who knows him. Thanks to Giorgos, my entire family loves Sifnos and Greece! I would recommend to anyone, whether it is their first time to visit Greece or even if they have been there several times, Aegean Thesaurus…They are very professional and dependable. Thank you Giorgos and Aegean Thesaurus for giving us the chance to discover such a magical place and for your heartfelt advice and service… We will be back again!

Greek Travel Agency Aegean Thesaurus Travel Agency arranged our trip to two Greek Islands over 11 days. Sandra Boustred gave me excellent advice about where to go, what to see and how to get there. She booked our hotels and organised our ferry and car transfers. She answered all my questions promptly and I found her service excellent. We went to two very different islands - Santorini and Sifnos. In Santorini we stayed at Volcano View, which is perched on the cliff face looking out onto the most spectacular view of the volcano, the bay below and the port where boats come and go. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and we loved our stay there. The scenery is stunning from every angle and the sunsets totally gorgeous. We enjoyed visiting the excavation site at Akrotiri, Red Beach and the village of Pyrgos,the highest point of Santorini, with panoramic views of the whole island. We discovered a fabulous taverna, Metaxy Mas, which was full of locals enjoying the free raki and delicious food. These were the places with fewer tourists who tend to flock to the two main villages of Fira and Oia. On the recommendation of Aegean Thesaurus Travel we then went to Sifnos for 6 days which was a complete contrast. Also beautiful but less populated by tourists. We really enjoyed brilliant food, quiet uncrowded gorgeous villages,walking trails and a lovely beach which we often had to ourselves. We stayed in a family-run hotel, Hotel Boulis right on the beach at Kamares, a cute little village beside a pristine beach. There were lots of restaurants along the sea front, all offering Sifnos cuisine. The hotel itself has a wonderful restaurant with a marvellous father/daughter combination serving and cooking delicious food with herbs from the garden or local fish freshly caught.We travelled all over the island by local bus to trails which led us to exquisite churches, spectacular sea views and lovely whitewashed villages. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Sifnos and appreciated the care and personal attention the travel agency took with our booking.

She accompanied us to the luggage storage at E7 ( which is at Poseidon travel Agency! Thank you ! That was a great tip! 5 Euros for the two suitcases), and then got us a very nice cab for 12 euros. Everything went very smoothly. Christina and her colleagues at the Hotel were truly hospitable and gracious. It is a lovely place to stay! Very short, easy walk from the port.

The ferries and transports have been smooth and easy. We loved our room and rooftop view in Athens at Hera. The location couldn't have been better - we hit the ground running and tried to explore as much as possible.
Mykonos View had so much charm and character and the food there was superb. They make all their breakfast sweets right there. I've never seen such a tempting assortment. I guess my new goal will be to not gain 20 pounds. The location worked out really well. We enjoyed the quick jaunt to the town and getting lost in the streets.
Saint Andrea Resort is truly a 4 star place. And I don't know how you did it, but we have the biggest room here. It's land facing, but it's on the 2nd floor and the balcony has a nice view of the mountains and toward town. You have two extremely happy travelers. Naousa is a really easy walk from here and we've done it twice already and will head back for dinner. It's tempting to get room service on the balcony though because it's so spacious.

Hi Jana,
I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for coordinating our trip to Greece. You put together a great itinerary for us, with your recommendation of some off the beaten path islands, which was exactly what we were looking for. Each of the accommodations you booked for us were perfect and each unique. All were very clean and modern, had very hospitable owners and staff, and were in great locations with amazing views. At each island, the hotel met or exceeded our expectations. Also, our inter-island travel went very smoothly and I appreciated you keeping me informed of the various ferry changes. We always had someone waiting for us on time, to transfer us to our destination.
September was also a great time of year to travel as it was not at all busy and we were really able to explore the islands and have a unique experience, enjoying the peace and tranquility the islands truly have to offer outside of the prime “tourist season”.
Thanks again for your patience and working with me to make the various changes to our itinerary, and putting together a great vacation for us. I have to say, although we enjoyed each of the islands (they each had something special), Milos still seems to be our favorite island. We were able to explore even more new places this time around, and still left a few things to explore our next time. We are missing the islands and already thinking about our next trip to Greece! Thanks again for all your help and excellent services provided.

Thank you, thank you for the assistance you provided in our trip this month to Greece.
We were so impressed with the accommodations and transports --- everything functioned smoothly and as planned. We especially liked the lodging choices in Rhodes, Santorini, and Nafplion.
Your assistance in re-booking the Aegean flight and Rhodes transport is much appreciated. Flight delays are always a surprise and we appreciate your speedy help in getting our trip back on schedule.
Our experience in Greece was wonderful: friendly residents, beautiful vistas, educational ancient sites, and fields of lovely summer flowers.
Thanks again for your help.

Dear Jana
I wanted to write to thank you for helping us to organise our holiday. We have travelled all over the world, but our holiday in Sifnos was unforgettable. What a beautiful island and what lovely people! The hotel was perfect, the transfers ran smoothly and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. When it was time to leave, the children asked why we couldn't stay forever!
Now I'm back in rainy England, I'm already looking forward to next summer's holiday! We definitely plan to return to Sifnos and spend a week at Hotel Alexandros, but I'd also like to spend a week on another island too. Do you have any recommendations?
Best wishes

Dear Jana,
After our mail from Athens we did want to briefly update you on both Sifnos & Milos.
Sifnos was amazing... Also due to wedding events probably. Our stay at Alexandros was very nice. From breakfast to free mango appetizers the service was incredible. Also location was Platis Gialos was the place to be with beach and good bus connections.
Milos as a totally different island has been great. Salt is wonderful and location amazing. With a nice stroll to Pollonia very nice restaurants are close by. Futhermore accommodation / cave is a true experience. Thank you for that.
Tomorrow Santorini is on the plan. We hope to enjoy it as much we did at these 2 islands.

Hi Barbara,
I want to tell you that we had a wonderful time in Greece, and in no small part it was attributable to you.
The hotel was fantastic. Our friends who stayed with us kept throwing compliments too, on its location, breakfast service, and overall friendliness (and the good room). We had drinks up top twice.
The driving service was very punctual. George, the owner, was so accommodating, as was our return driver. Both made it clear in many ways that we could stop here or there, do this extra thing, no hurry, and they were very informative.
The hotel in Nafpaktos was excellent as well, with a friendly staff and a wonderful location. We enjoyed that a lot!
So count on us to recommend you in the future!

Hi Barbara:
My husband and I came home yesterday from our vacation and we wanted to thank you for all of your help throughout this process of organizing everything for us. Because we had not been to Greece before and therefore the islands, I had so many questions and you patiently answered every one of them! It was great to have the port tickets and taxi rides pre-paid so that we didn't have to deal with that on top of negotiating our way through Greece.
There are so many islands in Greece, the possibilities of where to go are almost overwelming and I'm glad that for our first (and hopefully not out last) trip, we spent most of it in Sifnos. It was relaxing, with gorgeous beaches and breathtaking views of the island. We enjoyed staying at Morfeas Pension; it was the perfect location, close to everything, we loved our views from the balcony and veranda and our hosts were very accommodating.
The food was great and we enjoyed trying the different restaurants on the island. Best of all, the island remains unspoiled; the other tourists were very respectful and the residents appeared happy overall to have visitors to their home. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and beautiful vacation.
So, efkharisto, Barbara, with much appreciation!!

Hi Jana
I thought I would you an e-mail regarding our holiday to Athens/Amorgos/Milos having been back a week now. Harris and I had a lovely time and really enjoyed each of the Islands. The accommodation choices you selected worked out really well too, the owners of each of the places were lovely and really helpful and the accommodation itself was nice too, so would definitely recommend both places. I will write nice reviews for them on Tripadvisor (like last year for Selena Suites).
Antonis at Giorgas Studios kindly moved us to the separate building (the one will 4 studios closer to the beach) which was quieter, larger room and even more picturesque as he had a cancellation. We really appreciated this. We would also like to go back there again. Although Milos had lovely beaches we loved the beach at Giorgas Studios and the sea was perfect. It was also close to everything too (the port etc).
We also have very positive view of Villa Katapoliani, the accommodation was really well maintained and Stamatia was very helpful too. The location was good too being close to the port and the Chora and nice and quiet.
The hotel in Athens was in a great location too albeit the hotel itself is very basic but it served our purposes for Athens.
I always think it is important to give feedback so hopefully this is helpful for you too Jana and once again we appreciate all the effort you put into finding us the best options for our holidays.
Many thanks and kind regards.

Hello Barbara,
We want to thank you for all your help putting our trip together. Everything went very smoothly. We loved Sifnos. The hotel was perfect and the hosts there very welcoming and helpful. We greatly enjoyed the grandma's cooking, especially the homemade rice pudding from their own goat milk. We had wondered about its distance from town but we very much enjoyed the walk.
Ronia got us off to a very good start in learning about the island and some of its history. When we asked her about a good place to get the freshest fish, she pointed out one restaurant, Apazobou I think it was, owned by a fisherman. We ended up going there multiple times, and Vula and Maria made us feel like family. We loved the food and highly recommend it. We'll try to do something for Trip Adviser about it. And if you're asked about this in the future, flying to Kos and taking the ferry was quite easy, though I know it wasn't the height of tourist season.
Again, Barbara, thank you for your help. You made it easy and smooth for us. All the best and we hope the summer goes very well.

Dear Barbara,
We are back after a good holiday on the Greek Islands.
All went well as per the schedule.
We overlooked reserving seats in the ferries between Piraeus and Tinos, and Syros and Piraeus as they are long journeys. However, on the Syros- Piraeus leg i up graded to reserved seats and that was comfortable.
Next time we will remember to reserve the seats.
I do appreciate the professionalism you have shown in helping me make my choices and the subsequent bookings. The itinerary listing and the placement of the tickets date-wise was impressive.
We thank you again and wish you the best for the future.
Do keep in touch.

Hi Barbara,
We're back home in New York now, on a chilly rainy day, and wish we were back in Sifnos! Everything went very well on our trip, in good part thanks to you for helping us plan all the best places to go. Sifnos turned out to be our favorite location because of the beautiful little villages and chapels in the hills. If we could return to Greece, your island would definitely be where we'd like to spend more time--and we'd definitely come back to you to arrange it.

We've sent quite a few recommendations to Trip Advisor. One very special place that we'd like to mention to you is the Aetoma Hotel, where you managed to book us into their wonderful top-floor suite with roof terrace. The proprietors there, Panagiota and her son Akis, are both charming and unusually helpful. They told us they've had good experiences working with you. We pondered a bit how to enter our recommendation for Aegean Thesaurus, so that as many people as possible would find it, and we finally decided to put it in a forum labeled Review of Aegean Thesaurus Touring Company. A copy of our entry is below. Carry on with your good work, Barbara.

Our best wishes to you,

Review of Aegean Thesaurus Tour Company (as posted on Tripadvisor on Jun 05, 2013, 12:17 PM by Elizabeth and Glynn Mapes)
“As a result of reading these great reviews of Aegean Thesaurus, my husband and I decided to use them too. It was the key factor in the success of our first trip to Greece this May. We are experienced independent travellers and have been to many parts of the world without using a travel agent. But this time news reports of strikes and demonstrations, plus incertainties about future ferry schedules, made us feel that we needed a capable local facilitator in case complications arose. We were planning a trip that included not only Athens and the Peloponnese, but also two islands - Santorini and Sifnos - that are not well connected even in the best of circumstances. Barbara Vaccarella at Aegean Thesaurus (located in Apollonia, Sifnos) turned out to be the person who helped put it together. She is very knowledgeable, responds quickly to e-mails, anticipates concerns, makes suggestions that improve your own plans, and is flexibly efficient when changes become necessary. When we were in Sifnos we dropped into the company office and gained the impression that the rest of the staff would also provide excellent service”.

Hello Sandra: We wanted to send you a note to tell you that we are safely home and have settled for our summer...our main hobby - golfing has been sporadic since our arrival because it keeps raining here! But it has given us some time to look after our spring and summer gardening and home projects...

Our first trip to Greece was absolutely wonderful!! The islands we stayed on are beautiful!!

We had a fabulous time and enjoyed all aspects of what you had organized for us .From the suggestions on phone cards to those on walking tours. Our stays in Athens were terrific as were each one of our visits to the 5 islands that we spent time on. The hotels you booked for us were perfect and each one of them met our needs.

Although we had some trepidation about visiting Greece, we quickly learned that there was absolutely no reason for it. The people of Greece are hospitable, friendly, gracious and they all made us feel so welcome. Never once did we feel uncomfortable and never once did we feel we were being taken advantage of, like we have in our other locations. The food was fabulous and always fresh and not once did we have a bad meal. We particularly liked the fact that there were no fast food places which sadly are now the norm in our Country!

We enjoyed staying in the family owned hotels you selected for us and were very impressed that your selections had us right where we wanted to be! Not close to any noisy areas for sleeping purposes yet just a short walk to the local attractions and restaurants and other amenities.

We especially enjoyed staying at the Nissaki Beach hotel and the Petalli Village hotels, our two seven day stays! They are very well run and nice facilities... just perfect.

The only real disappointment we had with our holiday was when we arrived in Sifnos, where your office is located! We asked the nice young lady who greeted us when you would be available so we could meet and thank you personally. It was then that we realized how virtual our world really has become? She told us that you were based in the UK and would not be there! One of our questions of you was going to be how you had leaned to speak such excellent english!!

Now that we are home, Barb is asking me where we will go next year!!! Given that my current philosophy is not to return to the same place twice. (only so much time and money and so much to see!!) Dare we ask you if you are familiar with or can suggest other places we should visit?

Thanks again for all your help, wonderful suggestions and professionalism. You should know that in all of the traveling that we have done we have never used a travel agent. We've always booked on our own. Our first impressions with the service you provided us are just... excellent!

Please thank everyone in your office who helped us. The gentleman who spent time on the phone telling me about our ferry changes and the other staff in your office...

Thanks for everything...

Dear Sandra -- Thank you so much for helping to make our trip to Greece as wonderful as it was; we loved every minute! We were more than satisfied with all our accommodations... I wanted to mention a few people, things, and places that we especially appreciated:

1. You! It was enormously reassuring to be able to rely on your familiarity with all the places we might want to go, and to feel that you were talking to me, a particular person, rather than a generic Tourist. The itinerary we came up with together turned out to be just right for us...we did everything we'd hoped to do, and more, without feeling rushed or "If this is Wednesday, it must be Delfi."

2. The various transfers, which made life very easy.

3. Ada, so warm and welcoming, meeting us when we disembarked from the ferry and leading us in the dark to George's car. (I'm sure that was your doing.)

4. Staying at the Delfini was, for me, like living in one of those posters that you see in every Greek restaurant in NYC. It was exactly as I had imagined, and perfect. George and Pepi, the owners, were also perfect.

5. Ronia was great...she wrote out a list of about 20 words and phrases that we/she thought we needed, which I carried in my pocket for the whole two weeks; it was an automatic smile producer wherever we went. She also sent us to a wonderful restaurant -- the taverna in the small fishing village in the north of the island (I can't remember the name) -- and gave us strict instructions about how to order. (We would never have dreamed of asking to see the fish first.)

6. Pension Dafni in Nafplion was completely charming...we'd have been happy to stay there for a year.

There are lots more superlatives where these came from, but I'll stop now. Thanks again, Sandra.

This agency is top-notch--friendly, efficient, dedicated, and honest. I used Aegean Thesaurus this year for my four-week study abroad program (University of Utah), which entailed numerous bookings for hotels, transfers, ferries, etc. Not a single detail was overlooked, and on the few occasions when adjustments had to made (once because a student arrived late from the States and once because sites were closed due to the Greek elections) a simple phone call (in one instance) or email (in the other case) to the agency brought an immediate response and remedy. And--get this--such excellent service cost no more than my study abroad trip the previous year, when I made all of the arrangements and bookings myself! Apostolos, the head of the agency, handled my study abroad program, but after my students went home I spent another two weeks in Greece with a side-trip to Turkey, and the bookings for the Greece-part of this extra time were handled by Sandra. Once again, every detail was attended to, and everything was as smooth as could be. I'll be using Aegean Thesaurus again next year for my study abroad program.

Well, we are back in South Africa and had an amazing time in Greece – we loved everything about our stay there and were sorry the time flew by so quickly.
Thank you so much for all the arrangements you made – everything worked without a hitch and it was so nice to know that we would be fetched when the ferry arrived instead of having to find our own transport in a strange place. We enjoyed all the hotels and found the people very friendly and helpful. (Hotel Vencia was amazing and we are so glad that we managed to get a sea-facing room after all.)

Our last day was election day. We did see a lot of police, but there were no disturbances. Not once did we feel threatened. It was very safe. Of course, thats the first thing people ask about when we returned. Greece gets a lot of bad pubicity. But I think the tourists will still come. There is so much to see. Greece is our favorite country. Thanks for all your help, and should we return, I'll use Thesaurus Agency again.

All of our connections and transfers went perfectly.
We enjoyed everything that we saw and felt like we got a good overview of several aspects of the country.
We were very happy with all of our hotels.
Thank you Sandra for your help with the planning and for changing the intinerary many times for me. The plans were perfect.

Thank you Apostolis for arranging our transfer from Sifnos to Athens during the ferry strike!
I would have been quite stressed if it hadn't been for your intervention, but with your help we wasted no time worrying about our travel plans.
Our private boat ride to Paros was quite enjoyable and you were right..the seas were calm! We didnt mind paying some extra money for this as these situations cannot be planned for.
Sifnos is a beautiful island and I wish I had stayed there longer. We spent a lot of time hiking around to find some of the churches and explored Kamares, Apollonia/Artemonas and Kastro. Hotel Boulis on the beach was wonderful as well.

Most people I have told about my trip say..that must have been expensive! But when I tell them what we paid they are always surprised that the price is as low as it is.

Hello Mr. Dimopoulos, My wife and I have returned from our trip to Greece and are back in Alaska.
I have to commend your agency with organizing our vacation. All of our expectations were met and we had an excellent trip. When we arrived in Athens, we were met at the airport and transported to our hotel. This happened at each island and all vendors were expecting us and awaiting our arrival. I can't say enough about how impressed we were with the vendors you work with, their commitment to their customers and the quality of the trip.

I will share my experience on Trip Advisor and will be happy to be a reference for your company if you would ever need one.
Thank You. It was a trip of a lifetime.

Subject: Agean Thesaurus - REVIEW

We debated whether or not to use a travel agent when we were planning our trip to Greece.
We both have traveled extensively before and wouldn’t normally use a travel agent when going to Europe, but we were planning to go to Greece for our honeymoon so we thought it might be nice to have everything taken care of.
We were very happy with our decision. Our travel was stress-free!
Aegean Thesaurus booked our hotels, ferries, rental cars, and transport to/from ferries and hotels.
We didn't have a single problem with any reservation. Drivers were always waiting to meet us and took us to and from the hotels and ferries.
Aegean Thesaurus must have informed the hotels that we were on our honeymoon and so we were given special treatment at many of the hotels (upgraded rooms, champagne, etc).

We shopped around for a few Greek travel agents but deciding to go with Aegean Thesaurus. Sandra worked with us and changed the itinerary as we directed, opposed to some other travel agencies that wouldn't book us in the hotels or cities we requested. We also found the price to be comparable to some of the other travel agents.

Overall, if you are wanting a personalized itinerary with multiple Greek islands and completely stress-free travel, it is definitely worth it to use a travel agent.
Even if you are well-travelled; for a trip like a honeymoon, it was nice to have drivers waiting instead of trying to find cabs and negotiate getting places yourself.
We had no stress and had a great time in Greece!
Thanks Aegean Thesaurus!

We arrived home this week from our trip and have been busy getting back to "reality". We had a wonderful time and want to thank you so much for all of your help. All of our transfers went smoothly, in fact the taxis were always early. This was our first experience with the Greek ferry system and the total noise and confusion and mayhem associated with boarding and disembarking was made easier knowing that when we did fight our way to the wharf someone would be waiting there with my name on a sign and would wisk us away. Thanks so much

Thanks Barbara.
We will definitely come back to Greece again in the future. We did enjoy going around the Sporades but I have to say we much preferred the Cyclades (Serifos and Sifnos in particular) and I can see us returning one day.
By the way, we thought all the hotels you booked for us were good. We particularly liked the Bourtzi as the owner was so helpful and friendly and the room was excellent. Regarding the Aeolos on Skopelos, I regret that I did not go with your original suggestion of the Dionyssus!
I am sure we will speak again at some point in the future.
All the best and thanks again for all your help with our booking.

Hi Sandra,
Thanks for the link.
Here is what I posted:
I used Aegean Thesaurus for a 2 week vacation in June/July 2010. I started working with Sandra Boustred and she was fabulous. I too had some concerns since I was paying over the Internet to a company I knew nothing about, but all my concerns were unfounded. Sandra found wonderful and mostly small hotels in Athens, Delphi, Olympia, Nafplio, Naxos and Santorini. She also arranged all in-country transportation (ferries and flights), transportation and hotel transfers, and the Athens car rental. Aegean Thesaurus was worth every extra dollar we spent over making all the arrangements ourselves. I would highly recommend their services but at the same time, you also need to do your homework beforehand so they can get you the types of accommodations and other service you want for your price range.
I would definitely use Aegean Thesaurus again for a trip to Greece

We plan to go back to spend more time with our family which we found in Vasilaki. We also loved the Aegean Plaza in Santorini. Lovely hotels!

Hi Erin ,
Just arrived home yesterday from our 23 day adventure. I wanted to write and let you know how happy we were with all the hotels plus the service you provided us. Everything went so smoothly from the transfers always being there even when we had a few flight delays after going through security with no chance to advice of the delay. Both George's in Athens where very friendly and informative about the city. We had a wonderful time and the accommodations we had made such a difference in our stay in Greece. The Chat tour was terrific even though we were transferred to Go tours after day one. Some special places deserve mention including the Casa Delfino in Chania. The staff were wonderful and we were given an upgrade. What a beautiful hotel and location. The same can be said of the Pegasus Suites in Santorini. What an amazing place , the staff went above and beyond , we have never had such personal , terrific service at a hotel . We also had an upgrade there. The Ammos hotel and staff were terrific too and the owner spoke very highly of your agency.
I'm very tired today so will keep this brief. Thanks so much for your help in planning our once in a life time holiday. Your wonderful service has been truly appreciated. We have recommended you to a few people considering trips to Greece.
Hoping to return to Greece someday.

Hi Sandra,
I just wanted to tell you that I am having a great time. I just arrived in Santorini a few hours ago. Everything has gone great, no problems. I loved Crete. Chania was good, hotel in great location. After that I went on to Chora Sfakion. On the recommendation of a girl I met on the flight to Chania, and several other travelers, I decided to stay in Loutro. What a wonderful place. I did not want to leave there. It was easy walking from there to some good places, Sweetwater beach, etc. Took the ferry to Ag. Romelli and saw Samaria Gorge. Went back to Sfakion one day and got my car and drove to Plakias and Preveli. Yes, I did try Sfakion pie as you suggested - very good. I also thought of you when I drove over the tiny bridge you told me about.

I wanted to thank you for your help in arranging our trip to Greece. We had a lovely time. All of the accommodations were nice. We especially enjoyed Porto Mykonos.

I had chosen that accommodation based on recommendation by my niece. At first, it was a dramatic change from the other two hotels but we grew to enjoy our little "villa" and it's spectacular view.
Our only disappointment on the trip was the day that we had to spend traveling from Mykonos to Santorini. We were looking forward to taking the ferries through the islands. We appreciate that you are refunding the cost of transportation by SunTime in Santorini.

I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help in planning our trip. We had a great time everywhere we went - certainly due in large part to all the great arrangements you gave. I thought I would give you some specific feedback on each place we stayed.
- Transfer provided by George Kokkotos - smooth and friendly. Prompt, professional and on time. Would definitely use them again.
- Athens Cypria hotel - great hotel in a great location. The staff there was very helpful. We had connecting rooms, which worked out perfectly.
- Erietta Suites (Chania) - we ended up staying at the Porto Del Columbo hotel. When we went to check in at the Porto, they said that the Erietta was having improvements made to it and was not available. They gave us 2 nice rooms, which we were happy with.
- Rental car in Crete = they gave us a BMW since they did not have any Mondeos left - nice surprise!
- Transfers in Rhodes = friendly and efficient. No problems.
- Cava D'Oro Hotel = loved this hotel in the old city. The people were very helpful and friendly.

Hi Matt,
I am writing to complement Barbara of Aegean Thesarus Travel on the amazing trip she put together for my mother and I. I found her through your website, and after reading testimonials, I was confident that using this agency would be key in making everything perfect for our trip. I started emailing with Barbara mid May about my dream trip, a graduation gift from my parents. She was so incredibly helpful in putting together an itinerary that fit perfectly with everything I wanted. She was very patient and thorough, and I felt through every step of the process that she was hearing exactly what I was saying, and that she made every effort to make things perfect. Upon our arrival in Athens, and meeting our taxi transfer (who had to wait on our very late plane!), we could see that everything was going to be seamless and easy. We spent a total of 23 days in Greece, seeing Athens, Sifnos, Santorini, Mykonos, and Naxos. Each taxi transfer, ferry trip, plane ride, and hotel reservation was perfect and incredibly easy, the way a vacation should be. Any problems that arose, we were able to contact Barbara, and she made it just seem to go away, and always had a great solution. I have already recommended her to many people I have met, and cannot stress enough how fantastic she (and everyone else at the agency) is, and how amazing our vacation was. If we had not had her recommendations or aid when we had a ferry situation go awry, I cannot imagine how I would have dealt with figuring out a solution. In sum, enough compliments cannot be said, she is fantastic and I will continue singing her praises to anyone who asks (and perhaps even those who don't). I thank them so much for the amazing assistance and the trip of a lifetime!!

Dear Karen,
On behalf of Keith and me, I would like to extend our warmest thanks for coordinating the most amazing vacation for us in Greece. I have nothing but praise for the extremely high level of service and professionalism offered by each and every person at Aegean Thesaurus.
We were amazed to get a phone call in Mykonos warning us of the fact that the ferries might not be operating and then a follow up phone call listing our options and how to deal with the problem. That simply would not happen if we were dealing with an agency here in Canada. Here the feeling is once you’ve paid your money you’re on your own! The concept of actually keeping track of client problems while they are traveling does not exist. We give Aegean Thesaurus top marks there.
Finally, when we were unhappy with our room in Milos, the fact that you dealt with relocating us quickly and with no question we thought was exemplary.
Once again, please extend our thanks to everyone we dealt with at Aegean Thesaurus. We have been raving about you to our friends ever since we got home, and will highly recommend your agency to anyone who is interested in a trip to your exquisite country.
We’ll be back and will look forward to dealing with you again.

Plus the transfers we had in Athens to and from the airport (I think it was the same company) were great - the drivers were so kind and full of information. We felt like we had mini-tours going back and forth to the airport.I have to be honest it was my sister pushing to go to Greece, but I really feel in love with the country (the little we saw of it!), even Athens was great.

Folegandros was so relaxing and the coves were amazing. It was a trip of a lifetime and we enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for being there every step of the trip with the canceled flight and ferries and the last minute switch of our hotels. We called several times from Greece and someone was always there to help and reassure us. The travel glitches were bound to happen on middle season but I would definitely recommend you and your agency because you did everything you could to make up for it and get us on the right track to have a fabulous vacation. Thanks again and take care.
All the best
Jenny & Steve

HI Barbara
Well we are back home again after what Sedica and myself both agree has been our best holiday yet!
Thank you for your arrangements and advice – everything was perfect and we never had problems with anything.
It was great meeting you and we will definitely be returning to Sifnos again next year.
Hope you had a great vacation as well.

Hi Barbara,

Dear Barbara,
We have returned home to America from our vacation in Greece. We had such a fantastic time and found the Greek people to be very warm and inviting and especially appreciated how kind and friendly they were to our young children. We look forward to returning to Greece someday in the future. What a beautiful country!
I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the Polydefkis Apartments in Kamari Beach, Santorini. The location was fantastic (very close to everything), Maria (at the front desk) was very friendly and helpful, and the room was very spacious, modern, and clean. It appears that the property has been recently remodeled. Anyway, it was a very nice hotel and we would highly recommend it to others. Thanks for finding such a lovely place for us to stay in Santorini. It was our favorite hotel in Greece.
I'm missing the delicious Greek salads, Gyros, and wonderful breakfast pastries already. I can't wait to return to Greece.
Thank you for all of your help organizing our vacation.

With your expertise and patience, my husband and I just returned from a fabulous visit to the Greek Islands. We hiked every square inch of Santorini, Therassia, Nea Kameni and Palea Kameni with a small private volcano tour before visiting Milos and Sifnos and then Athens. Every arrangement you made on our behalf went like clockwork, irregardless of small glitches that we expect when traveling (like ferry schedule changes). How truly remarkable to drive into Kastro to be flagged down by our hostess and shown to our accommodation! It is because of your help with research and information and finally the arrangements that we could truly enjoy our time in Greece. We look forward to another (longer) trip! Thank you.
Kindest Regards,
Denise Gallup

Dear Barbara,
Back in Spain now, I just want to thank you for the perfect organization of our trip. The hotels and their locations were exactly what we were looking for and transfers to airport/port were always very efficient and right on time. I am recommending your agency to everybody I talk about my trip so don't be surprised if you receive enquiries from my friends next year.
We have fallen in love with the beauty of the islands so we have started to have a look to the islands we would like to visit next year. Until then, when I hope to count with you, I wish you all the best.
Best regards,

I just wanted to drop a line to thank your team, especially Barbara, for arranging our trip. This was our 25th wedding anniversary and this was a trip we have been dreaming about for years. We have to say it was absolutely perfect. Tours, hotels, port transfers, and transportation were flawless. It was a fairly complicated itinerary but we never had a moments trouble.
Thank you for all your help and patience in the setup and your professional implementation.

Hi Barbara,
We are back home after our wonderful vacation. Everything went perfectly. We loved all of the hotels and the islands. These islands were not crowded with tourists and we really enjoyed our holiday. I especially would like to thank you for recommending Zalonis apartments in Tinos. Theresa and Yorgo provided wonderful hospitality. Each day Theresa would surprise us with a special traditional Greek treat. We had home made honey balls, cake, rice pudding and even a snack one day of ouzo, meat, cheese and olives. She was truly a beautiful lady who made us feel very welcome. Our favourite town was Batsi. The view from our apartment was amazing. I think the food in the tavernas was the best we have ever enjoyed. The beach was excellent for swimming.
We loved the quiet of these islands. It was nice to hear mostly Greek and very little English. It helped me to learn to speak a few more Greek words.
Thank you so much for making our vacation so special as always.
Best regards and I hope to speak to you again for our vacation in 2008.
Karen and Shawn.

Dear Mr Dimopoulos,
I would like to express my gratitude to the great service that Ms Sandra Boustred has given my mother and myself, over the last few weeks. She was extremely patient, attentive and efficient. Most of all she was always very positive and prompt.
As I live in Tokyo and my mother in Singapore, we hardly have time together. So this trip to Athens and Santorini was a very special for us. Thanks to the great service level that Ms Sandra had given us, I was able to maximise the little time that we have had together at Santorini and also enjoyed your beautiful country.
I will not hesitate to introduce my colleagues and friends to Aegean Thesaurus.
best regards

Dear Barbara,
I am just writing to thank you once again for arranging our holiday to Syros and also our ferries to and from Mykonos. We came home last week and we had a lovely holiday. We must highly recommend the Ethrion rooms and studios in Ermoupolis. They were very attractive, spotlessly clean and the owner, George, was incredibly helpful with all sorts of local information and he offered us free internet access and a free laundry service. Ermoupoli is a wonderful place to stay and the Ethrion is very centrally located with great views.
I would just like to compliment both you and Aegean Thesaurus for another successful holiday in the Greek islands (you booked our holiday to Sifnos last year) and to thank you once again for your help,
Best wishes,
Janet Davidson and family.

Barbara, we have just returned from our trip to Athens and Santorini. Every single arrangement you made was absolutely perfect!! We loved George Kokotis’ cab drivers – what a wonderfully professional job he does. The Adrian was great – we loved breakfast in the shadow of the Acropolis each morning. Santorini and Delfini Villas was definitely the highlight. The view took our breath away. Our room was tiny, but that did not matter as we spent all our time on our spectacular deck overlooking the caldera. Oia is truly a gem – we liked it much better than Fira, so were glad we were staying there. This message is just to let you know that we really appreciate your work and your advice. We will definitely recommend your company to anyone who is planning to travel to Greece. Thanks so much . . .
