Athens client testimonials




"Thank you all so much for this AMAZING trip to Greece? Like our other trips, I ran out of superlatives on about the second day. Our follow-on to Istanbul and Ephesus was also fantastic."

Bill and Neva, Fullerton,  CA


"We just returned from Greece, and thank you for an absolutely fabulous experience offered there.  We found nothing but great positive surprises at every turn in Athens, for the marathon prep and for our Classical Tour."

Warm Regards,

" Thank you for taking such good care of us in Athens. The trip was so well organized and thoroughly enjoyable. I would like to make special mention of Jane who was the director at our hotel. She was so wonderful and totally took me under her wing. I was a bit nervous as I am usually accompanied by my husband but Jane was so thoughtful and kind. She definitely made my trip."

" Thanks for arranging a wonderful and successful trip to Athens.  Believe or not, I ended up achieving a PR on this course.  Wow!  If you have a rating system for how your customers rate trips, I would have to borrow a quote from the movie Spinal Tap.  "This one goes to 11".

Jeff, Richmond,  VA


"I have to tell you, we got a lot more out of this trip and we'd thought.  We met a bunch of great people, your great staff and of course, a great race.  Meeting Hal and Kathrine was a very big bonus!  I think I'm going to be hooked on international marathons.  My wife and I were planning on running Chicago next year but now we're thinking Berlin instead."

"Just wanted to give you some feedback on my trip with Marathon Tours for the Athens marathon. All arrangements were perfect and you chaps could not have done a better job. The social events that you planned were great. A perfect mixture where we had enuf scheduled but not too much. I really liked the half day tour of athens. My time on the marathon was not as good as I would have liked but that had nothing to do with you guys. The whole thing was a fantastic experience and I would definitely consider using Marathon tours for a future marathon or recommend Marathon tours to friends. Thanks so much for a really awesome experience and a great memory that will last quite a while. The hotel choices were excellent and the restaurants for the Post race celebration were excellent choices. The guest speakers at the pasta dinner did a fine job and were very inspirational. The marathon tours staff on site were very friendly and helpful. It could not have been a better experience. I just wanted to make sure that you knew what a good job the team out here did. "
