Yamas! (which means “cheers” in Greek). There were many “yamas” made on our May 2022 FAM with our DMC, Seez Travel. Athens, Mykonos, Paros, Santorini & Crete. Tara and I led 6 American travel advisors to spend 9 nights exploring these different regions of Greece visiting our hotels, taking part in unique experiences, eating, shopping and getting to know some amazing Greeks (many of them named George, Panos or Maria).
Upon landing at the Athens airport Seez Travel arranged a very nice surprise. Stepping off the plane on their outdoor tarmac we had a personal greeter whisk us away from the crowd boarding the bus to the terminal. Instead, a private car took us directly to the luggage claim where our assistants grabbed our bags and walked us outside to our private transfer that drove us the 30-40 minutes into the city.
While many travelers use Athens as their starting or ending point of a Greece trip for just a night or two, 3 nights or more would be ideal to really get to dive in and experience all this city has to offer.
