A note from Jillian:
Romantic white washed villages, crystal blue waters, incredible food and culture that goes back several centuries—Greece offers something for every kind of traveler. While there are a few obligatory must-sees where you’ll wade through crowds of people—think the Parthenon and Santorini sunsets—with over 200 inhabited islands, it’s quite easy to get off the beaten path and find yourself alone on a pebbled beach or wandering solo through the narrow walkways of an ancient village.
My husband Tim and I spent two weeks exploring Greece and worked with Liz (@elizabeth.b.walsh) at The Local Foreigner (@thelocalforeigner) to plan the trip. Liz was amazing and booked all of our private transfers, any excursions we were interested in and offered perfect restaurant recommendations.
Many of the Cycladic island vendors aren’t “online” so she was a godsend in organizing the entire trip and keeping everything (and us!) organized in the Local Foreigner app.
Just a quick note: we weren’t paid or sponsored for any leg of the trip so all recommendations are our own… I hope they might help you to create an amazing itinerary that is uniquely yours!
