The Winter in Greece Program was a perfect choice for us in that it covered the major sights both in Athens and the Peloponnese Peninsula. The accommodations were perfectly located, the food was excellent and our group leader was outstanding.

If participants have not read the Iliad, they will learn all about the great players of the Mycenaean world, at least the mythological characters, and about the Bronze Age. I would recommend that participants read the Iliad and Odyssey before taking this trip.

What a wonderful experience! Everything that I could have hoped for and more! Sites Visited: All of the top destinations that you would expect to see in Greece were visited and our Group leader, Vicky, had a wealth of knowledge on each one! We were blessed with perfect weather at the perfect time - the evil eye bracelets worked and luck was on our side! Food: AMAZING!!! I loved every restaurant and we were very well fed. It was great to visit small, local restaurants where the ingredients were locally grown and you could tell a lot of love went in to the preparation. Accommodations: The hotels were stellar. I have to admit that the atmosphere of the Hotel Amphitryon in Nafplion was far superior to the Hera Hotel in Athens, but that's understandable. The trade-off for the beauty of Nafplion was it's distance from the historical sites and the drives that we took to get to them but it was so worth it. Getting There: For me, the airport transfers were a little tight. With flight delays and gate changes, I could have used a little more time between my connecting flights (I booked through RS). It's a great benefit to do the extensions if you can just to get to the trip without the added stress of getting to Athens. The Greek: Warm, welcoming, wonderful! Such a proud people who are eager to share their culture. My Group: Possibly the best part of the trip. RS just attracts people who want to learn and embrace the world around them. I have made some connections that I hope to maintain for years to come! Group Leader: VICKY!!! The absolute best! Overall: I really enjoyed my experience with RS and I have already booked my next adventure! Thank you for everything!
