This was our first trip to Greece, but will not be our last. We decided to use a travel agency that was located in Greece after reading after seeing good results from other reviews online. It was a smart move. I contacted Mary Emmanouil through email and she did all the heavy lifting. Once I gave her some basic insight... More

We booked our 3+ week holiday through Fantasy Travel (learned about it through Matt Barrett's website). All arrangements were handled by Makis who kindly finetuned the itinerary prior to departure so that it reflected exactly our Greece travel "vision". Makis was a blessing throughout the Greek ferry strike - so thankful I didnt have to navigate that on our own.... More

I just returned from my 2nd trip to Greece and for both trips my itineraries were handled by the exceptional staff at Fantasy Travel. I learned about Fantasy from the Matt Barrett website back in 2010. From the mainland to the islands, the transfers, hotels, and excursions were all outstanding. The 4-day Classical Tour was amazing. You get to see... More

Booked a trip for 4 with the help of Patrou who was always very prompt and helpful with her replies. Due to flight cancellation, only 2 of us could make it to the trip and knowing we were too near the dates for a refund, we did not request for one. We only notified patrou to take note that only...

I don't think you'll find a better travel agency anywhere in the world. We had great service before, during, and after our trip. Before the trip: Our point of contact was Paula and she worked patiently with us through several iterations on various itineraries. In the end, we settled on a trip that exactly matched what we were looking for.... More

When we had late notice flight cancellations Fantasy Travel arranged alternative accommodation and travel. Their representatives were on hand at all times to assist us. We cant speak more highly of the staff and the agency and we are... More

We worked with Paula, she was very responsive to our requests as we were planning the trip. She set us up with an amazingly well-coordinated 2-week multi-island visit to the Cyclades by public ferry. Everywhere we landed, both off the long initial flight to Athens and in the islands, they had somebody waiting for us -- even when unexpected bumps... More

Fantasy Travel arranged all of our transfers and some tours, and was very helpful with arrangements. During our trip the staff was reliable and made us feel very welcome. It's a great agency and I heartily recommend them. Makis was our contact and communicated promptly and patiently as we developed our travel plans.

I used Fantasy Travel after reading about the service from Matt Barret's website on Greece. I was contacted by Athina in response to my request for information and over a period of a few months was booked and confirmed for my visit to Greece. Athina did a great job in arranging for my hotel stays, tours, and even offered great... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
