Mr. Eric C B Cauchi, the director of Eternal Greece arranged a superb Athens Day Tour comprising the National Archaeological Museum, a city tour, and the Acropolis Museum for my family which took approximately five hours. Mr. Cauchi personally came to our hotel promptly on schedule as arranged with an expert, highly qualified, and fluent guide, Ms. Georgia Papadoploulou, and we were transported in a comfortable chauffered air conditioned mini van for our tour. We had Mr. Cauchi's contact information so we could reach him at any time. Our guide was very friendly and informative and we enjoyed her company and scholarly presentation. She really loves what she does, and she made the trip a fascinating journey into the past, as well as the present. We would recommend Mr. Cauchi for his politeness, professional manner, and excellent care and concern that we should be happy with our tour in every respect. He also followed up to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction, which it was. Most highly recommended!

Thank robert k

My friend and I worked with Eternal Greece to book a two week self-driving tour through the Peloponnese Peninsula. We had initially tried to do this on our own but had trouble navigating many of the Greek hotel websites and figuring out how much time we needed in each location. Additionally, we had a hard time narrowing down where we wanted to go. We contacted Eric at Eternal Greece and never looked back.

He was fantastic! He responded to all of our questions, even the numerous questions we had prior to even booking the trip. Not only that, his responses were almost immediate. He made great recommendations and worked with us as we described the types of sites we wanted to see and activities we want to do. Working with Eric removed the stress of booking the hotels, reserving the rental car, and deciding how long to stay at each location. Because it was a self-drive tour, we still had plenty of flexibility on-the-ground to go where we wanted, and down any detour that called to us between destinations.

We were provided insights into each place we stayed, as well as tips on how to navigate the sites, the roads, and the culture. He arranged for our pick-up from the airport in Athens, was flexible when there were flight issues, arranged for our rental car pick-up and drop-off, and even met us in-person to discuss our plans once we arrived. He also continued to check-in with us during the trip, in case there were any issues.

With Eric's help, we were able to visit the top ancient sites (Delphi, Athens, Olympia etc), but also fit in other towns that were off the beaten path (Loutraki, Galaxidi, and Palaia Epidavros). We were also able to include places that we wanted, specifically, based on reviews other travel sites (Monemvasia and Nafplio). Despite going to so many places, he made sure our itinerary balanced restful days with more full driving days. We never felt over-tired by our schedule. Some of the best surprises were the places we stayed that we were completely unfamiliar with prior to planning the trip with Eric. Additionally, the hotels that he arranged for us to stay were comfortable and the proprietors were friendly. While we were lucky that nothing went wrong for us on the trip, we were reassured to know that we could call Eric at any time and he would be able to help us out of any pickle. I can't recommend Eternal Greece and Eric enough. I have already recommended Eternal Greece to multiple people who would like to plan trips to Greece. If I go back, I wouldn't hesitate to book my trip with Eric.

Myself and a friend had been planning a trip to Greece, but were somewhat at a loss as to where exactly we should go, where to stay, and all of the little details that go into planning a trip; luckily, we found Eternal Greece! We knew we wanted to do a self-drive tour through the Peloponnese, but once we started trying to plan from there, we quickly got overwhelmed and reached out to Eternal Greece. From my initial inquiry (through the website) through follow-up emails once we returned home, Eric was extremely communicative, responding to emails and requests often within hours, even with the time difference between the US and Greece.

Because of Eric and Eternal Greece, planning our trip to Greece was fun rather than stressful, with Eric taking our general travel style and “need to see” destinations and then suggesting itineraries for our 2-week trip. After picking our preferred itinerary, a few adjustments with input from ourselves and Eric, and many emails between the three of us, we were ready to head to Greece!

I can’t describe how fantastic it was to have Eric handle all the little details that so often make a trip stressful. For example, rather than having to trek across Athens to pick up the rental car, Eric organized for it to be dropped off at our hotel, where he met up with us to go over details for the trip. Having Eric there meant there was someone who could read Greek to look over the rental contract with us, and give us quite a few tips and tricks for driving in Greece, as well as more general recommendations for our time in Greece.

Our itinerary included several of the major “must see” destinations like the Parthenon and Archaeological museum in Athens, Corinth, Delphi, and Olympia, but also quite a few that were off the beaten path for American tourists (largely thanks to Eric’s suggestions). Our first stop outside of Athens was Loutraki, a spa town just over an hour from Athens where we had one of the best meals of the whole trip at a little restaurant Eric recommended (no menu, just whatever the chef was cooking that day!). Galaxidi was one of the stops on the trip that my friend and I were originally the least interested in, largely because we couldn’t find much information on it, but wow were we wrong. Thanks to Eric’s recommendation, we spent the night there and it ended up being our favorite stop on the trip! (I cannot recommend enough the breakfast on the patio at the Galaxa Mansion.) This theme continued throughout the trip, with recommendation after recommendation being exactly what we wanted for our vacation; often places we simply could not have found on our own, like the Canal Dive brewery outside Corinth.

If you are looking to book a trip to Greece I would highly recommend Eternal Greece! I know that if I ever plan another trip to Greece, contacting Eric will be one of the first things I do.
