  • Maria is a marvel. My friend and I just got back from a 3-week trip to Greece and Maria’s TLC with regard to dozens of details was amazing. The first thing she did was listen to us. In a 40 minute planning call, we got to know each other a bit- what we were looking for, our budget- we will know it when we see it- our interests (no beaches or shopping please for us- culture, museums, nature, help us get to know Greece and its people a bit). She booked our lovely boutique hotels in Athens, Corfu and Hydra, got us plane tickets to Corfu and ferry tickets to Hydra, arranged for cars for us from here to there. MH, Aug 2018
