Eleni Paida at Fantasy Travel assembled a fantastic 10 day package for us, including Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini. She recommended a reasonably priced 10 person, 5 hour, sunset catamaran cruise with on-ship dinner, and it was great. We did not provide any input regarding the hotels, yet each one she selected was just great. Private transfers between hotels, ferries, and airports were all included and reasonably reliable. Truth be told, I relied on the fact the Fodors Travel listed Fantasy Travel as one of their favorite tour companies. It ended up being a great choice!

Nikos Emmanouil of Fantasy Travel (FT) planned a spectacular trip to Greece our group of 6, 55+ year old's. Nikos and the Fantasy Travel associates, transfer drivers and tour guides helped us to have a fabulous luxury vacation of a life time. All of our guides and drivers were on time or early at each location, they were all experienced and spoke English. We began planning our trip 3 years ago, were delayed and even had to cancel the trip due to Covid-19 and were grateful for a full refund, but we were hopeful to someday make it to Greece; our trip was definitely worth the wait.
We started in Athens, took the Ferry to Mykonos, then Santorini and back to Athens. Each hotel had minimal steps as we hoped. the Hotel Athens Gate had the most amazing views of the city including a sunset view of the Parthenon that lit up at night. It was just beautiful. FT booked us a tour of the city, Acropolis and museum which was perfect. Our tour guide Pan was excellent; we were grateful for his experience and knowledge, and timing to avoid the crowds.
At the Hotel Vencia Boutique in Mykonos we were greeted by hotel staff that treated us like family; the staff was very professional, helpful and hospitable. The front desk, breakfast staff and pool staff were outstanding and very kind to us. We enjoyed the Vencia, it was our favorite hotel and we highly recommend it to anyone.
The hotel Ira in Santorini had beautiful views from our rooms, and the staff were wonderful. The service each morning, at the pool and lounge was prompt, polite and absolutely amazing.
FT booked us a catamaran tour of Santorini; the staff was delightful, experienced and cook a wonderful meal on the boat with stops to swim and beautiful views of the sunset. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend Nikos and Fantasy Travel.

Very good experience with this agency regarding the quality of the hotels, the guides, and the transfers. I have never worked with a travel agency but we were a party of five: my husband, son, daughter, her fiance, and me, and I was worried about having to coordinate for all of us. Fantasy was recommended on some travel sites, so I gave it a try. I had specific requests, and after some back and forth communication regarding particular needs, the agent was able to provide a custom itinerary that was very reasonably priced. I doubt that I could have done better on my own. Having Fantasy put the pieces together took away the stress of planning a trip for our small group. My only gripe would be the trip to Delphi/Meteora. We had a guide and a nice bus for the Athens to Delphi portion, but were told during the ride to Delphi that we would be switching buses and guide after our Delphi tour (also we did not get to visit the Delphi museum). When we switched, it was an inferior bus and also over crowded. I was not able to sit with my husband. Very unpleasant ride to Meteora. However, the new guide and the hotel in Kalambaka were very good. When we arrived in Athens the next day, it took over an hour to get us to our hotel because of so many drop offs. We actually got off several blocks from the hotel and walked because we were so tired of being on the bus (we actually would have done this earlier if we had known how long we would be stuck on the bus).

This review is for my 10-year wedding anniversary vacation in Greece where we found Fantasy Travel to help us with our trip and itinerary since it was our first visit to Greece.

Makis as our main point of contact from the estimate to completion. All without any hiccups and everything was thoughtfully planned with the utmost professionalism and curtesy.

Since it was our first trip ever to Greece, Makis mindfully built our itinerary with a balanced mix of activities that mirrored our budget and interest.

All in all, we visited Athens, Naxos, Santorini and Crete plus a day trip to Mykonos. Perfectly paced and we got to see what we set out to see as first timer.

On our last night in Santorini, Makis informed us of our canceled ferry to Crete due to strong winds where all ferries and flights were grounded. Not only did Makis swiftly inform us, he also proactively provided solutions PLUS contingencies due to the unpredictability of mother nature. Of course everything worked out smoothly at the end and we arrived in Crete and back to the States without further incident.

We had a BLAST visiting Greece because of Fantasy Travel as they essentially arranged EVERYTHING where we simply showed up to each destination without having to worry about any type of transportation. Everything was delivered as promised and agreed upon. We cannot stress how impressed we were, and I did A TON of research on my own as well. There was zero surprises or mis-aligned budget/cost concerns at all throughout the entire trip!

Highly recommend their service! You will not be disappointed.

I worked with Vicky (and Rosanna) at Fantasy Travel and I could not have experienced a more seamless and reliable travel agency when they organized my trip to Greece in May 2022. My wife and I traveled to Naxos, Santorini, and Athens (+ Delphi) and Vicky did a wonderful job of organizing our trip and making sure that we had our transportation, lodging, and private tours all scheduled. We also got a free sunset luxury cruise in the Santorini caldera as part of our early booking, and it was spectacular- we essentially had the boat to ourselves and did a lot of snorkeling in several locations as well as watching the famous caldera sunset. All the tour guides were reliable and a wealth of knowledge about their locations. Vicky was always prompt when answering my many questions (despite the time zone difference) and we couldn't be happier with our travel experience. (Note: it's important for travelers to Greece to also do their own research as well beforehand so that they can be prepared to visit the desired sites in each island or city on their own, and take recommended precautions and opportunities- recommended travel guides include Rick Steve's Greece, Lonely Planet, and Fodor's Essential Greece.)

Vicky A. from Fantasy Travel did an outstanding job in helping us curate an unforgettable itinerary for our group of 6 with age ranging from 81 to 9 yrs old. For full disclosure, we did our research and had our wish list before working with Fantasy Travel but Vicky really helped pull the itinerary together that worked very well with our schedule. The trip was a mixture of private tours and free-time to explore (as requested by our group members). The private tours and tour guides were very knowledgeable, professional yet were also very personable and interesting individuals. The private villa/hotel and dinner cruise in Santorini were amazing! I highly recommend.

Makis from Fantasy Travel booked an amazing trip for our group! We did not know exactly what we wanted to see, so she suggested an itinerary that allowed us to see the highlights of Athens, along with Mykonos and Santorini. Every detail of the trip, from the moment we landed at the airport, was handled perfectly. Our transportation to each destination, our hotels, and our excursions were really great. We received first class customer service, and friendly, helpful drivers in each place. We highly recommend this agency to plan your trip to Greece!

I can’t speak highly enough of Fantasy Travel. I worked with Paula and she built us the dream vacation at a decent price. We did Athens, Naxos, Santorini. Accommodations were excellent at each location, with super friendly and helpful staff. All of the transfers from airports to hotels to ferries back to airports and also to tours were on time and professional. You basically show up close by when and where they say and they take you from place to place. Worth it to pay for that experience and piece of mind. We did an Athens Acropolis private walking tour and a Santorini sunset cruise, and both were excellent, with great staff. If you’re a DIY person I’d still recommend using Fantasy Travel. They make it so easy for you so you can just enjoy your vacation. Five stars!

This was the best experience I have ever had booking any trip anywhere. Yana took so much time and patience crafting a safe experience for me as a solo female traveler on a Sunday when every other agency was closed . She booked me a perfect island, hotel, air and transfer. Worry free trip taking into account my mobility issues! She even made sure that I had wheelchair transportation calling the airport personally to insure this . This is an exceptional service! Dr Elizabeth

I have to compliment Fantasy Travel and especially Angeliki that I worked with to create a custom two week vacation with all the transfers, car rentals, hotels, some day activities, etc.

Being local, her recommendations were excellent matches to the general ideas I had about the trip and the type of hotel, pickup and return of rental car at the hotel, specific of the area that's has a local flavor, small side trips that are semi-private, etc.

Once we arrived, at every transit point we had folks either from Fantasy Travel or their associates in the islands do a great job whisking us between transportation and the places to stay. Additionally, you always have a contact person you can call if there is any kind of question or problem, since after all you are in a foreign country. We actually had to use that once, and the folks at Fantasy went way beyond what was required of them, to make sure that everything had a happy ending!

You should be aware that Fantasy will handle everything in Greece, but you'll have to book your airline flights yourselves and just inform them of the arrival and departure time. I would encourage anyone considering a trip to Greece to just have the major ideas about the trip for starters and let them fine tune them with their local knowledge. You'll be very pleasantly surprised, just as we were!

In conclusion, i just want to thank them for a flawless vacation that the whole family enjoyed, and we'll come back for sure.
