Have never seen such a good preparation for a travel. It is really a big advantage to have somenone who knows perfectly all the places you will see and visit.

Thanks to Petassos Travel, we were finally able to make it on our long-awaited trip to Greece after several pandemic delays. Emmanouela and her team were amazing. We planned the trip for May 2020 and rescheduled a couple times before it was safe to travel again. Emmanouela was so helpful and patient during the uncertainty and she rearranged everything for May 2022. We spent 2 days in Athens (food tour, Acropolis) and the rest of the time on Crete (Samaria Gorge, sailing in Balos Logoon, Rethymno, Knossos). Petassos Travel and their partners selected great hotels, planned a number of private tours with knowledgeable, interesting guides and drivers for our family. Our group included parents and adult children (20’s). She was always available throughout the trip to assist with questions and provide recommendations, including helping us locate a COVID testing option the day before our return flight. I would highly recommend Petassos Travel. It is as an amazing trip.

Finally, after 2 years of planning, my husband and I embarked on our personalized trip with Petassos in May 2022. Emmanouela worked with us to create something special Petassos has the kindest and most knowledgeable collaborators and partners that we’ve come across. Sunset Sailing with Manolis & Manolis was filled with history and humour. Visiting a Cretan home to learn of village dishes and wines with Georgios was a singular experience. Had an enchanting tour of Stella’s vineyard as she shared her vision of growing Cretan wine awareness. Thank you to Ioannis for the wonderful guided trip to Chania. So many details were looked after and many suggestions made to enhance ever aspect of our experience. It will remain one of the most memorable visits of our life. Efharisto Petassos team, Emmanouela and partners,for the positivity and love you showed us.

I would recommend Petassos travel to anyone who wants to fully explore and enjoy the nature of Crete. Emmanouela and her team did everything to give us an incredible experience. We had a mixture of guided and self guided walks along rugged beautiful coasts and gorges. Our guide Iannis was wonderful and full of knowledge of the flora, fauna and history. He was great company and took us on trails not often walked by tourists. We were looked after so well by him, and Clarissa. They became dear friends and we're still in touch. Emmanouela was in touch with us every day to check all went to plan. The transfers were smooth, luggage transported each day and the accomodation was excellent with lovely hosts. It was perfect. Thank you to all the team fir an amazing time...we will return!

Dear Ian and Jola, thank you for your encouraging words and for the trust you have shown us! The communication with you was excellent, from the beginning to the end! Your positive attitude to every suggestion for something different helped me to be able to suggest various ideas and make changes where needed. From the very first moment, Ioannis felt that he had friends with him who helped him to offer his knowledge generously and this is what we ask of every traveller...friends, who will accept our suggestion of off the beaten track trips! Crete has so many places still pure and waiting to be explored by you and Jola... Until next time, dear friends, be well and travel as you do now, not only with your body but also with your soul! Thank you very much! Ioannis, Clarissa, Emmanouela

We had a fantastic family trip of 3 weeks in continental Greece and in Cyclade islands organized with the amazing help of Christina. Christina perfectly understood our needs and proposed many options to make our holidays unforgettable. She perfectly respected our budget and our expectations. She was very reactive and available by e.mail and whatsapp before our travel but also and above all during our stay in Greece. We had a great 100% personalized trip around the major places to visit in Peloponese, Central Greece and Cyclades. Christina selected for us very nice hotels and managed all transports (speed boats between islands, car rental, private transports between harbors and hotels...). She also advised us for restaurants, best places to go to, and shared with us useful tips, books, maps and excellent guides. She was very professional and helpful. We highly recommend Petassos Travel to help you organize an amazing "voyage" in Greece.
