Testimonials

  • “A stunning tour of UNESCO sites.”

    The tour I undertook with Eternal Greece was great – we covered a large number of UNESCO sites in a relatively short space of time, with time spent at each site tailored to my interests. The accommodation also met all expectations, so all in all this was an outstanding experience from which I gained a greater appreciation of Greek history and culture. Thank you Eternal Greece.

  • “There is a difference between a tour and an experience. We had the last one.

    It was in every aspect challenging and full of information. We have learned so much and coming back to Athens we will use your expertise once again.”

  • “Fantastic tour of the well known as well as lesser known sites, particularly in the Peloppenese, and including some travel off the beaten track. You think you know Greece, and then find that there is a whole new aspect to explore.

    I can thoroughly recommend Eternal Greece as a tour operator. They will bend over backwards to ensure your needs are met.”

    …We visited all the places my friends were interested in, our guide was very knowledgeable, the hotels where we stayed could not have been better and Eric was an amazing tour leader. Everything ran smoothly and because of his love and enthusiasm for the land and the people, he made everyone fall in love with Greece. And made me even prouder of my roots than I was before!!!

  • “Wonderful Athens Museums and City Tour arranged by Eternal Greece”

    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. 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!
