Uli was awesome. We had a number of special requests and Uli accommodated all with a cheerful and helpful demeanor. She worked up several options to help us cut costs. The trip unfolded without a hitch. It was a nice surprise that everywhere people were expecting us and were there to help. Highly recommend Dolphin Hellas.

I was so pleased with planning the trip this way. We had never worked with a travel agency before, but this was great! It is so helpful to have someone who knows the country plan with you. Having the transfers included reduced the stress of arriving somewhere and having to figure out what to do. I would (and already have) recommend Dolphin Hellas to anyone planning a trip to Greece. Thanks you so much!

All the drivers and transfers were very helpful and made the trip easy. Being notified about ferry changes was also extremely helpful and contributed to a stress free holiday. A little more information on the ferries might be helpful- such as open seating vs assigned seats and baggage rules, although it wasn’t hard to figure out! Overall, the trip was wonderful and we enjoyed Greece and all the people!

Uli really did a great job - she came up with some excellent suggestions on which islands to visit, and in which sequence, and the hotels were all great.

I worked with Uli Perschau at your office and can only say she was absolutely the best travel agent I've ever worked with. A colleague that had used Dolphin Hellas some years ago recommended your agency, and I have since recommended you to another couple that are headed to Greece. I will continue to recommend your agency. Thank you for excellent service.

Dolphin Hellas offered excellent professional service for our group. Totally satisfied. They respond promptly to all inquiries and make excellent recommendations. Will keep going back to them for future trips. They were indispensible in making alternative arrangements for us when we were stranded in Athens for two days due to bad weather. Would have been a disaster without them.

Dear Uli,
I am so grateful for your planning and the arrangements you made for Diane (Claudia) and me for all of our Athens and island hopping to Hydra, Mykonos, Santorini and back to Athens adventures. It was wonderful to have George and Aries meet us and handle all of our ground transportation. We enjoyed our rides with them.
I have to say a heartfelt thank you for calling the Piraeus Port Police for me. It was a miracle that my lost purse was turned in! You are my heroine. Were it not for you calling and explaining the lost purse and translating for me, I would never have gotten it back.
The Bratsera hotel in Hydra was my favorite. It was just beautiful—simple, comfortable beds, conveniently located. Just being there in the Bratsera was a pleasure. The staff was wonderful. The Harmony in Mykonos provided a fantastic view and was comfortable. Our room was near the top, up about 68 steps from the waterfront. The view was worth it, but I would not recommend it for anyone with climbing problems. The Tzekos Villas in Fira, Santorini provided a spectacular view. The beds were hard, like cots, and the room was sparse. We had a porch overlooking the caldera from our room down low on the cliff. Climbing up and down to our room was a struggle. All of Santorini would be a difficult stay for anyone out of shape or with climbing challenges. But the view was spectacular and I was so glad I brought my high powered birding binoculars. All of the staff at the hotels were very kind and helpful.
You made this trip so easy for us. I will very highly recommend end you and Dolphin Hellas to any friends who are headed to Greece.

We really appreciated everything you did to make our vacation so wonderful. I highly recommend your agency and have to say that Uli was fantastic! She worked very hard to find what we wanted everywhere and did a fabulous job. I have been telling everyone about you and will continue to do so. The only regret we had was that we didn't get a chance to stop by your office and thank you personally. You are all the best! Thank you so much for all the hard work. You really came through at the last minute with the ferry strike.

We were very pleased with the arrangements made by our agent, Uli. She expertly combined our week-long driving trip with the week-long cruise with time in Athens at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end of our trip. We will certainly use Dolphin Hellas again should we make our way back to Greece in the future. Thank you!

Eleni is always very helpful and works hard to find the right hotels and services for our groups. Nothing is too much trouble and we are always given a lot of options and sent quotes in a quick turn around.

We were very pleased with all services provided by Dolphin Hellas. The staff was very professional and accommodating. Our trip would have been more cumbersome without their help. All email correspondence prior to the trip was communicated in a timely manner. We especially appreciated dealing with Uli who couldn't have been more effective handling our needs. We would recommend the services of Dolphin Hellas to anyone who plans to visit Greece. We had a lovely trip.

Uli was very helpful & always quick to respond to e mails. Every thing that we booked was satisfactory. When we had to change our ferry times at short notice due to bad weather she quickly arranged an extra night at the hotel in Athens. She was also reassuring that whatever time the ferry arrived in Piraeus a driver would be waiting for us. The bad weather made it hard to predict when it would arrive. Thank you for all this.

Dolphin Hellas did a wonderful job organizing a tour for our family recently. Eleni Kourtensi was our travel agent and she was very responsive and was able to set up hotel needs, airport transfers, and private tours for our family of 21 who traveled to Greece from three countries for a reunion. All went well and Dolphin Hellas was communicative throughout our planning and did a great job. Eleni was attentive to details and flexible and adaptive to our needs during the planning. I would recommend Dolphin Hellas and Eleni Kourtensi to others interested in visiting Greece.

Since my husband lived on Crete for 4.5 years in the 1980s, we are connected with many of his colleagues we also return there to relive their residence on the island. We are prolifically recommending Dolphin Hellas as a wonderful resource for booking in Greece. Dolphin Hellas smoothed the way for our travel in a way that made our trip low-stress and overall extraordinary. Dolphin Hellas, you will hear from us again when we return to Greece. Thank you so much for the PERFECT supports you provided. [Uli Perschau]

I would not hesitate to recommend Dolphin Hellas to anyone who wants help in putting together a great Greece holiday. Uli, our agent, was super-responsive and accommodated all of our requests and preferences. In addition I was very happy with the cost and don't think I could have spent less if I had taken the amount of time required to try to do it all myself, even with all of the online resources available to travelers today. And it's good to have a local "backup," since in Greece as in other places there's always a good chance of some sort of transportation glitch suddenly appearing, whether it's due to labor actions, weather, mechanical problems, politics, or whatever. In fact, we've encountered most, maybe all of those in our travels in Greece over the years.

Dolphin Hellas provided outstanding service during every step of the planning process. We've been home for a week now and are still talking about our wonderful trip to Greece. Thank you so much for making everything run smoothly. It was very helpful having all of the transfers in place when we traveled from one location to another.
Greece is now on our list for future trips, and we will be sure to contact Dolphin-Hellas when we are making our arrangements.

Very helpful and no problems at all. I dealt with Uli and was pleased with the service we received. We would certainly use Dolphin Hellas again. My only issue is with the payment system which I don't think is very safe. I would prefer to pay with a credit card and don't really understand why that can't be done

This is my second group trip to Greece arranged with Aliki's assistance, and I cannot praise her highly enough. Both times, she was attentive, well-organized, and available to help throughout our time in Greece. She was sensitive to our desires concerning itinerary and arrangements, but also willing to make helpful suggestions based on her extensive knowledge and experience. Aliki is a very pleasant person and a true professional, and I would not hesitate to work with her again (in fact, I have just recommended her to my sister, who is going to Greece with a group of friends next summer).

My wife and I booked the 7-day Grand Tour of Greece through Dolphin Hellas after reviewing/communicating through other tour agencies. Right from the start of inquiry, I would like to commend Uli Perschau from Dolphin Hellas who was able to respond to all my queries within 24 hours. Subsequently, the tour itself was exceptionally good as far as the hotels, meals, and transportation. Matina who was our tour guide was exceptionally well versed and passionate about the history of Greece and she was able to provide a detailed story linking the various archaeological and historical sites during our 7-day journey. If you are into Greek history and knowing more about Greece, this is a great tour.

Overall we were very satisfied with the services provided by Dolphin Hellas. In particular, Uli Perschau was extremely professional and helpful both during the planning stages by meeting all my special requests and then when we had a problem with the hire car on Crete during the trip. The changes to government requirements for an international drivers license meant we had to cancel our booking at short notice (I only found out about the requirement when we tried to hire a quad bike on Santorini). Uli responded immediately, cancelled the booking and arranged a refund. I would definitely recommend Dolphin Hellas to anyone here in Australia thinking of a trip to Greece - and in particular Uli Perschau - she is a great asset to your company.

Outstanding. Everything worked exactly as Uli planned it. We could not have done what we did remotely from the US without their help, from car rental, boat to Hydra and later to Santorini, and flight back from Santorini to Athens. We narrowed our wish list, and Dolphin Hellas staff were patient, informative, and helped sculpt our dream trip. Thank you!

Dolphin Hellas was very responsive, organized, and helpful when organizing our trip to Athens, Greece. They provided many options to choose from, offered advice but were not pushy, and their rates were reasonable. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone who was traveling to Greece, and needed a travel agency to make their experience the best one possible.
