I cannot say enough good things about Efi and the service she provides. I had never used a travel agent before reaching out to Efi, and I immediately felt a kinship with her and knew we would be taken care of. She listened intently to the kind of trip we were hoping to have during our 10 days in Greece, and orchestrated an experience for us that was beyond anything we ever could have done on our own. She’s like the grand maestro of travel! From planning private tours of the Acropolis and Delphi with the most knowledgeable and engaging tour guides, to day trips through side streets and cafes of smaller villages and lesser known historical sites, to seamlessly handling transfers to and from airports and hotels, to advising us on the best things to do and places to visit on our own. The list goes on and on. Everything that Efi had a hand in exceeded our hopes and expectations and had a personal touch that we could not have achieved otherwise. Not the mention the fact that I would go back to Greece just to spend time with Efi, she is gracious and curious and funny and incredibly sharp, but maybe that’s besides the point 😂 After having the great fortune of getting to work with Efi, I trust her implicitly, and urge anyone visiting Greece to hire her to make it a one-of-a-kind experience for you.

Vacation in Greece I had a most wonderful holiday in Greece! Efi was able to compress the essence of her beautiful country in stories, sightseeing and food in 12 days! All personal and delightful! Though we were a group twenty, my experience felt so personal and unhurried - thanks to Efi’s attentive, warm and generous spirit. Each of our concern was important to her and did her utmost to be flexible to make us happy and satisfied. All our guides were knowledgeable and well-versed! People who love to eat are always the best and the happiest people and do the Greeks love their food. Me, too! Healthy yet flavorful! Green with lots of exciting spices! I’m so missing those sumptuous meals we had! I want to do another Greek vacation soon! 💕

We had a wonderful time on our first trip to Greece/Hellas! Efi planned a beautifully relaxing trip with beaches, history, great food (try the grass!) and wonderful company alone the way. The trip guide, Rania, was so very accommodating to our every need and very flexibly with any changes we wanted to make during the trip. Our driver, George, was great as well - full of great energy, music and knowledge on the culture. All in all it was a trip we’ll never forget and will definitely be back to explore and reunite with new friends. Thank you so much Efi, Rania and Sir George! Until we meet again - Ben

Efi put together a customized trip that gave us a delightful introduction to Athens and Greece. She first took the time to get to know my wife and I, and then shaped a trip that matched our interests. She enabled us to see and experience much more than I thought we’d have time for. Efi provided excellent guides for the historical sites (Acropolis, Delphi) — trained archeologists who could convey the inspirational spirit of classical Greece. She also personally took us to several small towns, where we enjoyed bakeries and tavernas that only the locals know about. The food was delicious. Definitely a highlight! Efi loves Greece, and truly enjoys giving visitors a variety of experiences that go far beyond the typical tourist sites. She is friendly, creative, warm and accommodating, and her enthusiasm is infectious. She went above and beyond our expectations by making us feel like we were being shown around by a good friend. I highly recommend her.

What a wonderful few days in Athens and the mountains of the Peloponnese! Efi and her team worked extremely hard to make the holiday an extraordinary experience. Everything worked seamlessly from the transfers around the Peloponnes to the farewell lunch in Athens with Efi herself, not forgetting the brilliant guiding and dissemination of local history by George in the mountains and the warm welcome from Nelly in Kalamata. We were treated like royalty with warm friendship from everyone. We will be returning to explore more of this beautiful country very soon. Thank you!!

There are so many things to consider when curating your own travel adventure and it is super helpful to get that local insight. Her advise also helps prevent blunders I might've made if I had not known... Efi took our top destinations we wanted to hit along our 13 day journey and compiled all the information so I could narrow down the decisions a lot easier. Many of the accommodations she recommended were no brainers, chic and convenient for the price. With the structure of the trip complete, I have a pdf of links and info available at my fingertips to fill in the details. Very much looking forward to this upcoming adventure traveling with my mom. Thank you Efi for helping us make the most of our trip!

Definitely Greece put together our honeymoon trip. It surpassed our every expectation and created an experience for us that is difficult to fully convey in words. It was my husband's first time abroad and he was a bit nervous about going so far and needing to coordinate things from the States. Efi and her team took all of that worry from us and made it seamless. The attention they put into organizing our trip allowed us to visit so many places, see so much and soak in every second without stress. Every tour and tour guide was awesome. Sharing tons of details and history for us history buffs, answering questions and making sure we got to see everything. All of our food accommodations were perfect. No tourist traps, every place we went was an immersive experience in Greece's incredible culture and peoples. Everyone was so friendly, it felt like we were with family. We tried new foods, drinks and just had the best time. All of our accommodations were beautiful, well located and allowed us to explore freely and come back for quick naps before heading out again. We have recommended Definitely Greece to all of our loved ones and can't wait to get back next year to do another trip and see more of this beautiful country that feels like our second home. 5 stars!!!!

For my first trip to Greece i felt very overwhelmed with all the choices! Which islands, in which order, for how long and once there, where to stay? I decided to get the help of the consultants at Definitely Greece, and I am glad I did! I signed up for the “consulting session” where I had a zoom call with Efi. I explained our timeline, and the kind of trip I was imagining. It was easy to schedule our meeting, and very easy to communicate with her. She asked me some questions about our tastes etc to understand more about our travel style and budget, and then a few days later she sent me a suggested itinerary with a list by location of their personally recommended and researched hotels, restaurants and things to do with links to each suggestion. Although there were still many choices for me to make, and some work to be done on my own to make the actual reservations, having a custom list of recommendations greatly reduced my choices to make it more manageable, less time consuming, and less overwhelming! I was also able to shoot a few follow up questions along the way and she was quick to respond. Thank you Efi and the team at Definitely Greece!

Frequently Asked Questions

Click here for the full list of FAQ questions.

Are the Cyclades family-friendly?2024-02-11T14:05:11+02:00

Yes, many Cycladic islands are family-friendly, with sandy beaches, shallow waters, and a relaxed atmosphere. Naxos and Paros are often recommended for families as well as Kea or Amorgos. On the other hand, families with younger children might not make the most of crowded and party-minded destinations like Mykonos, Santorini or Ios.

When is the best time to visit the Cyclades?2024-02-11T14:06:32+02:00

The summer months, from June to September, are the most popular for visiting the Cyclades due to warm weather and frequent ferries. However, it can get crowded, so we usually recommend and prefer the milder weather in spring (April to June) or fall (September to October).

How many islands are in the Cyclades?2024-02-11T14:01:06+02:00

A confusing answer for most people. The Cyclades archipelago houses over 2,200 islands, islets, rocks etc.

Only 33 of those are inhabited. However, some of the uninhabited islands are equally well-known and worth visiting (Polyaigos)

I am vegeterian/vegan/GF. Can I change the meal options?2023-11-03T13:46:57+02:00

Of course! We can accommodate dietary restrictions, including vegetarian, vegan, and allergies. Please inform us of your dietary needs when booking, and we will make the necessary arrangements.
