Irene Thompson at Dorcas travel deserves more than five stars! Everything exceeded my expectations. She really worked hard to make sure the trip was all I wanted and more. I would highly recommend her and her agency.
I normally handle all of my own travel, but for this trip I knew I needed an agent. We had five flights, two, ferry rides, seven hotels, all the in country logistics, plus nine tours (seven of which were private just myself and my wife). There is no way I could have handled planning a trip that complex, let alone doing it as well a Irene did. By the way all of private tour guides get at least five stars, and Amy in Istanbul probably merits six.
We were really glad we went to the Ionian islands (Corfu, Kefalonia, Zakinthos) as they were very different from the Cyclades (Mykonos, Santorini). Very green compared to desert islands. Our favorites were Zakinthos and Mykonos. The biggest surprise came on Zakinthos where we were upgraded to the presidential suite at no charge! That doesn’t happen every day….
We also went to Turkey and visited Izmir and Istanbul. The local agents there really took good care of us and went out of there way to make sure we had a good time…. We visited Ephesus and it is phenomenal. Should be on you bucket list. By the way Turkey is a really nice country with great people. They don’t deserve all the negative press they have gotten lately.
