All was great, Shannon did a great job in booking this for us.
The first guide we had Tina in Athens was wonderful. She was personable and professional. All the local guide were knowledgeable and helpful. The guide on the cruise was Gina. She was not very organized, we got let on our own in Mykonos, when the crowds got between our tour group, and Gina did not wait on us. Loading onto the cruise ship was chaotic, and she was not always available to us. Also, in the past, we had free time to shop, or spend more time at the sites. This time it was clear we were being taken places to specifically shop. When promised time to wander around sites on our own, it was often only 10-15 minutes. That did not let us see anything, it was usually restroom time. Arriving at Mykonos, and Patmos, and Santorini at dusk did not allow us to do any of the optional excursions with the ability to see the area. Despite this detractions, we had a wonder trip, and consider it in one of our top 3.
