Client Comments

I enjoyed everything about this trip! The Greek Isles were incredibly beautiful and diverse and it was fascinating to see a more intimate view of the islands by hiking the trails, eating the local food, and learning about the culture. The guides were fantastic—fun and very knowledgeable!

The combination of the history of Athens (the Acropolis, Parthenon, etc.) with the beauty of the Greek Islands, along with the amazing food, wine, ouzo, and people, was wonderful. There was not one single glitch in the entire trip—and we got to try something like 187 different dishes, all of which were homemade and authentic.
— Robert T., Phoenix, AZ
A flawless trip with outstanding leaders and an itinerary that went off like clockwork. It struck the perfect balance between hiking in breathtaking locations to immersions in the culture and history of Greece. All the hikes were beautiful, the cultural tours fascinating, the food and drink wonderful, and the lodging very clean and comfortable.

We had a fantastic trip hiking the Greek isles. Kostas and Dimitra were excellent guides and the scenery, hikes, people, and food all made for a trip we'll long remember. We're so glad to have had the opportunity to go!
— Cara T., Brooklyn, NY
I'm still basking in the glow of this glorious adventure. It was the perfect combination of natural beauty and cultural exploration. There were amazing hikes, quaint towns, and beautiful beaches. Every bite of food was delicious. The hotels were lovely. All of our Greek hosts were warm and gracious. It was my first time in Greece, and because of this trip, it won't be my last. As in all Wilderness trips I've taken, I felt like I had the insider track and got to see places I'd never been able to discover or have access to on my own.
— Susanne R., Brewster, NY
We loved this trip. It was a wonderful combination of hiking, exploring archaeological and historical sites, swimming in the Aegean Sea, meeting wonderful people, from hotel hosts to friendly taverna cooks and local residents. We were constantly amazed at the quality (and quantity!) of food, wine, and other treats.

Fabulous trip in all respects! Loved the combination of busy and less busy islands, of hiking and archaeology, of very unique B&B's and more modern hotels, and of a vast menu of delicious Greek food and drink.

Hiking the Greek Isles and swimming and boating the Aegean Sea is a trip I dreamed about—a trip that came true with this spectacular Wilderness Travel trip.
— Robert M., Great Falls, VA
A fun trip, every day was a gift.
— Dawn M., Hillsboro, OR
Getting to taste 168 different Greek recipes on the trip was an adventure in itself! The trip really ought to be called 'Eating in the Greek Isles, with some hiking.'
— Susan J., Cochrane, Alberta
We hiked along trails blanketed with wildflowers to spectacular cliffs; explored the narrow streets, small museums, and shops of whitewashed villages perched above the sea; visited simple chapels with ancient icons and frescos; lunched on secluded beaches; explored ruins at sites that have been inhabited for 4,000 years or more. To a person, the Greeks could not have been friendlier or more welcoming to us.
— Niles B., Madison, WI
The trip was fantastic! Kostas and Wilderness Travel allowed us to enjoy our private journey with our kids to give us memories to last a lifetime.
— Linda B., Madison, WI
The trip was a wonderful adventure in a beautiful corner of the world. The quality of the preparation and the skill of the guide made it a very relaxing holiday. We put our minds to rest and let our feet do the work. We loved it!

The trip was outstanding in so many respects: the organization and efficiency, the guides' leadership and knowledge, the choice of sites to visit and stay, and more.
— Al D., Twin Lakes, CO
I describe this to my friends as a trip in which I hiked and ate my way across the Greek Islands. The food was awesome, the hiking was beautiful, and the leaders were outstanding!

Lots of fun! Beautiful sites, excellent food, great company!
— Liz K., San Francisco, CA
We saw wonderful parts of the Greek isles that we would never have seen on our own.
— Ollie H., Castle Rock, CO
I'm so glad we opted to explore the Greek isles the Wilderness Travel way rather than by luxury cruise!
— Wallace I., Honolulu, HI
I will never forget this experience. It was everything I had hoped for: the chance to be outdoors in nature, adventure, fun, and beyond that, an opportunity to lose myself completely in the beauty of the country and the warmth of its people. Your company is great to work with, as always. This was my third and favorite trip so far, and I’m not  done yet!
— Cathy C., Sonoma, CA
This was absolutely one of the best trips I have ever taken in my life. I loved every second of it and did not want to come home!
