Hi all! I need help planning our honeymoon to Greece! We are getting
married on April 25th, 2015 in Miami, Fl. We have 2 weeks of vacation
time and a $5,000 budget. We are okay staying in lower star hotels to
stretch our budget for a longer stay! We want to see and do as much as
possible while on our Honeymoon!
We definitely want to visit Athens and Santorini, and maybe Rhodes or
another island (we are open to suggestions). We are mostly into sight
seeing and visiting Greece's fascinating ancient ruins. Since we are
from Miami, we have no interest in night life or beaches. We get enough
of that at home!
My main question is should we book with a travel agent or try to plan on
our own? We are inexperienced travelers. If you think we should book
with a travel agent, who would you recommend? I have an AMEX card, AAA,
and Costco membership. I've looked into Fantasy Travel of Greece but
they do not provide airfare into the country. What are your tips/tricks
for affordable flights? What are your suggestions for must-see sites?
What is a realistic agenda/itinerary for our trip? Any input would be
