    We are set for the June 22 Greece trip (got our boxes yesterday!). We have been following Nordkin's reports, which are in a separate thread. We confirmed today that the guides for our trip will be Chris Brown and Mary (didn't catch last name--but is the guide with local roots).

    We are doing a couple of pre-nights and one post-night, all in Athens--so will be doing the HOHO bus, and maybe the subway--and lots of walking--to get around when we are on our own.

    We consist of myself, my DW and our DD11 and DS18.

    Hey WeLoveABD, nordkin clarified the guides' names. It'll be Chris and the local Greek guide, Vivian. Don't ask me how I heard Mary, must be a senior moment! ;)

    The ABD rep also said "Mary"--maybe she goes by Vivian??

    Oh so I did hear right! I figured my hearing was going since Mary and Vivian sound very dissimilar. Maybe there are two of them? So I guess it is Mary for the June 22nd ABD. :)

    Hello. I also posted on nordkin's thread about their Greece ABD trip from last month. My family of 4 will be on this next tour starting next week. We are looking forward to it. We are from East Tennessee. It will be myself, DH, and our two teenage children. DD is 16 and will be a jr. In HS this Fall. DS is 15 and will be a sophomore. This is our 3rd Advenutes by Disney trip and expect to love this one as much as we did those two. Tufbuf and WeLoveABD, we look forward to meeting you and your families!

    Welcome to the ABD Board! Congrats on your trip!

    (I can't find a listing for a July 3 trip. Is that 2012 or 2013?)

    Counting down the days until our trip to greece on July 3rd. This will be our second ABD trip. We are arriving in Athens one day early and still have not decided what we will do for the first day before the tour. I am taking my wife and my two daughters 11 and 13. We went on the trip to the Galapagos islands last year and got addicted go traveling through ABD.
    It was good to see somebody else post for our trip.
