TRIP REVIEWS (13)

Joe Lapides

We returned home safe and sound. The trip was wonderful. The old churches and monasteries were mesmerizing. My wife and I traveled a lot throughout our life but I can assure you that this trip was one of the best trips that we ever had. The hospitality of the locals, the delicious food and the beautiful nature are some of the things that we will not forget for a long time. Highly recommend your company.

Best Regards,
