My wife and I were impressed with the tour Eskapas arranged for us. I had never done a tour outside of Trafalgar or Cosmos, so didn’t know what to expect, but was very satisfied with the tour. Alex did an awesome job organizing our itinerary, taking care of everything like transfers etc so we could focus on the tour, and upgrading our room at the Marblius in Athens. Kostas was very friendly and knowledgeable and we learned a lot from our walking tour of the Acropolis. For the remainder of the tour outside of Athens around Greece, we were thoroughly impressed with our tour guide George and driver Socrates. Both were very friendly and dedicated to making our tour experience great. George had a great sense of humor and made the tour interesting through his anecdotes, Socrates was quiet, efficient and so helpful with the luggage, and we really appreciate them both organizing a Covid test for us while in the tour so we could be sure we were able to fly back home. All in all, we were very impressed with the tour Eskapas organized for us, and are so glad we were able to see so much of Greece and learn so much despite it being the off season and Covid times!

The tour covered most of the sights that I wanted to see and was very good except for the meals. The guides and the hotels were very good. We learnt so much about the country. The variety of photo stops and attractions was perfect…Good value for your money for sure… There was a lot of driving which was expected since we were seeing sites that were all across the country. The drivers were also good and respected the traffic rules. The tour need to improve included meals. Over all , I recommend it.

I would give it 4.5/5 stars. I signed-up for the 7-day absolutely greek (escorted) that consisted of 3 separate tours: half-day Athens city tour, 4-day olympia-delphi-meteora tour and half-day 3-island tour. PROS: 1. The tour company agents were always available and prompt in attending to my enquiries before and during my visit (specifically Alex and Thanasis). 2. The tour guides were knowledgeable and funny, especially George during the meteora tour. 3. The hotels were great and met many new friends with whom I now still stay in touch with. CONS: 1. The island tour was last-minute cancelled due to low participation—I do understand this is not entirely the tour company’s fault as the weather was not great that week and it’s the off-season. This happened just 12 hours before the cruise tour (it was the second-last day of my visit: I felt pretty disappointed) and would certainly appreciate it if I had been informed earlier. However, the tour agents were quick to respond and helped me make alternative arrangement— I was still able to visit an island on my own. 2. Didn’t have many lunch options for the meteora tour.

Overall great. We learnt so much about the country. Really happy the way the tour was Our guide Sukru with his unlimited much knowledge, there wasn’t any question he couldn’t answer. Our hotels were all good and we liked a lot the one in Pamukkale. In addition, I would also like to mention that our driver was an excellent driver who made sure that we got to our destination safely. He kept the bus clean and orderly at all times which made the bus rides very pleasant. Cons : Some days were long in the bus as Turkey is a big country. They stop every 2 hours. There is wifi in the bus. Good for kids. We wish to be informed about the cave hotel upgrade in Cappadocia. It would be great to experience it. Well as I said earlier, it is a well-organized and high quality tour + very good price . We recommend.

As a solo traveler, I rely on a trusted company that can get me safely from point A to B, especially when I’m unfamiliar with the area. At the same time, I expect them to provide excellent customer service (addressing questions/concerns, employing outgoing/knowledgeable guides, etc.). I feel safe to assume that they check all of these boxes off for me!”
