GREEK ISLAND ESCAPE

We just got back from the 10 day Greece trip for our honeymoon and I'm already dying to go back. We had never booked a guided tour vacation before, but booking with Affordable World made everything so easy. We didn't have to research hotels, figure out transportation, etc. It was so nice to have our ferry tickets already booked for us and a spacious, temperature-controlled coach bus to take us everywhere we needed to go (within the tour - of ...

This is my second vacation purchased thru Affordable World. You can't go wrong with impeccable customer service! MY kids and I enjoyed the ruins in Athens and the Island of Delos. I have some breathtaking pictures in Cape Sounion. Mykonos was beautiful but I LOVED Santorini the most! Will probably return to Greece to stay in Santorini again and visit other islands such as Crete. Affordable World makes traveling with kids a breeze because they plan everything for you - ...

GREEK ISLAND ESCAPE

Just returned from 4/19 Greece tour. Overall a wonderful trip to a very beautiful and welcoming country! Id definitely travel with Affordable World again with modifications. One-pack light. You will be schlepping your luggage from 4 hotels and three ferries yourself! I brought one large suitcase, a smaller carry on and a tote. Some of the carrying was long and treacherous as in boarding ferries. Two-be sure you are in great physical shape. ...

You can’t drink the water on the islands so you need to ALWAYS ...

My husband and I just returned from our trip and it was wonderful! I upgraded all hotels and that was the right move, because they were all centrally located and beautiful! Breakfast buffets in all of them were outstanding. We did the city tour and Cape Sounion in Athens, which were very good. We did the Delos tour in Mykonos, not to be missed. Climb to the top of the mountain for a breathtaking view. We ...

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.
