It may be difficult to imagine actually feeling a part of a place via Zoom, but our tour guide Dimitra was able to gracefully transport us from our home computers right onto the beautiful island of Crete. For a short while, we were in another place, learning about the history, the land, and the people. Dimitra wove myth, poetry and art into her presentation, bringing this beautiful island to life. I left hungry for Greek pastry covered in honey, a strong cup of coffee, and a desire to visit Crete in person. Quite a wonderful tour, and a lovely, knowledgeable, and engaging guide.
It was a very informative and well designed tour
I registered for this course as we were thinking about visiting Crete. After hearing Dimitra's talk we will definitely be going to Crete. She was professional, knowledgable, friendly and able to convey her excitement about Crete. i liked how she divided her presentation starting with geography, then moving onto the history, followed by places of interest and tourist attractions. She was honest about when to go and described places so that one could identify and chose according to ones own personal tastes.
Dimitra is a terrific guide. We first learned the fascinating history of the island and then we traveled from east to west, visiting so many interesting towns and sites. The seminar ended with practical travel tips. An excellent seminar for those who are planning a trip to Crete.
I've not [yet] been to Crete, but loved Santorini, the Greek mainland, etc. Dimitra was a marvelous guide: she provided maps, photos, & explanations that were enormously helpful.
