Reviews

This Turkey and Greece tour was simply phenomenal. Coming from another continent I wasn’t aware of both countries' turbulent history. Our guides were excellent in explaining the past, the culture, and the present. Greece was beautiful. Santorini is like a fairy tale and so is Cappadocia. Those were my two absolute favorites. I loved and appreciated the beautiful hotels on all the Greek islands and their local flavors. Our group got along very well and we shared lots of laughs over grappa - Gosh, it is a strong liquor. I can’t think of any downsides of the trips - may be the ferry rides were a bit too long. But overall superbly planned and executed.

It has taken me way too long to write this review. It was our first Colibri Boston tour and it definitely won't be our last! To say that the tour exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. The Greece tour was full of amazing experiences that were packed into a great itinerary. We loved the sites, hotels, food, and especially our guides and drivers. The other tour group members were all interesting people who were fun to travel with. It was great to travel in a small group. I saw the big bus tours on our way and I will surely avoid those in the future. We were always leaving them behind as they were standing in huge queues. I knew I would love Greece because many of my friends took different tours to Greece but this tour changed how I think about Turkey. I can say that a hot balloon tour in Cappadocia was the #1 highlight of the trip.

We found this company to be excellent. They were well organized and easy to reach. Greece and Turkey trip was great - start to finish. We have recommended a friend to you. She wants to go to Cuba.
