"At first we're not convinced to go cruisin' we're a bit scared but as they say 'conquer your fear' and so we did...I tell you IT'S ALL WORTH IT! The Greek Oracle is so much fun, met amazing people, seen fantastic view, famous and historical landmarks, ate great food...and oh I can now say 'I've been to Greece!' This place will never ever get old. Thanks to AFC for the experience, to Ms. Aireen of AFC Dubai and Mr. Nikos in Athens for the assistance. More power!"

"If history interests you & when you have booked for a short trip to a foreign land, what matters most is a knowledgeable guide. This was our first time with AFC, the tour operators they used were some of the best. They were not only good at what they did, they were all-rounders. If we were given a choice to use AFC again, I definitely would!!"
