Imagine having family in Greece
Our guests repeatedly tell us that staying in our homes as part of their Greece experience left them feeling like they had family in Athens – without violating the “three day rule!”
You’ll enjoy a variety of activities when you stay in one of our homes. We’ll help you arrange guides, drivers, and private tours. In addition to the traditional Acropolis and museum tours, we offer private food tours and Greek cooking classes with a Greek chef, architecture tours lead by a lifelong Athenian architect, winery tours, and a selection of off the beaten path Athens cultural tours as well as day trips beyond Athens.
Your Greece destination specialists
In addition to hosting guests from across the globe in our homes, we also create custom-tailored itineraries for travelers curious about discovering the road less traveled around Greece. We work closely with you to understand your needs, travel style, interests and budget.
Come travel with us
A few times a year company founders Carole and Basil Kezios lead a small group excursion into the Greek countryside where we stay in charming country inns and bed and breakfasts, exploring the mountains of the Peloponnese and visiting wineries, olive farms and cheesemakers. These exclusive private journeys are limited to a small number of guests, so if you’re interested in learning about upcoming itineraries, check with us.
Are you one of those people that enjoys planning your own journey? That’s terrific. Perhaps all you need is a little fine tuning from a local expert. That’s where Basil and I come into the picture. We offer an Athens Itinerary Local Expert Review service, $85 for 2 hours of itinerary review and telephone, email or Skype consulting. We’ll not only check your itinerary for impossibilities, but we’ll also arm you with off the beaten path secret Athens spots that only an Athens local could know how to find. For most people a 2 hour review is enough to set them off on a memorable journey, but further travel consulting services are available at an hourly rate.
We also offer a complete trip review service, which includes your prospective travel plans between Athens & the islands, the Peloponnese or Sterea Ellada. As experienced travelers in Greece we can spot travel itinerary mistakes, impossible connections or journey times, as well as offer pointers and local suggestions for the do-it-yourself trip planner. Our Greece trip review service is $150 for up to 3 hours, additional hours are billed at our hourly rate of $60/hour.
Maybe you haven’t really thought about what you’d like to do with your time in Athens and would love for someone to set you on course for a fabulous, memorable time but don’t know where to start. If you haven’t got an itinerary for me to review yet, I can create one for you. A typical 3 day Athens itinerary creation consult is $125 for 3 hours. Additional hours are billed at $60/hour.
We’ll be glad to work with one or more people within your traveling party, but we find it is best to have everyone involved in the decision making process available for the consult if you’ve chosen the “live” option via telephone or Skype. Email consults work best if there are multiple people involved in the decision making process.
