Just returned from a fabulous trip with Wind Spirit and the Greek Isles. We did not do any of their shore excursions, but hired private tours on 3 of the islands. I will be more than happy to share this information with anyone. Our Turkey guide was the best and we found his prices and service better valued than the one offered on the ship. Anyone going, give my regards to Karma and Gino - we wanted to put them both in our suitcases and bring them home with us! It was a great experience.
In Athens, we enjoyed George, "the best taxidriver in Greece." George is not a licensed guide, but he is delightful, a great driver, very accommodating:

I can highly recommend Ren's tour in Katakalon (Olympia), too. It was awesome!
We are booked on the Wind Spirit for the June 29th sailing Greece and Turkey. If you have info on local tour guides and companies we would really appreciate your assistance. You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is our first cruise...and we hope we have made the right decision (but Windstar seems to really fit the bill).
