I dont know how to top Andrea's comment. Would just like to address the quality of this trip. From the food to the smallest detail regarding our travel, the buses, the drivers, the airfare, the hydrofoil... It was thoughfully  planned. What you cannot measure are the friendships made and the feeling of family that we have. This awesome sport in a country like Greece made us feel like we were truly ambassadors!  Would I do it again, absolutely!! I am filled with gratitude for all of you, and especially Christie and Niko. What an undertaking!!  It should get easier from here, right?  Thank you from this Reno gal, MaryLou!!

What an amazing experience!!! I’ve travel the world and met many people, this trip was one of the best I’ve ever taken! 
Amazing organization, top notch instructors, genuine good hearted people, I am so happy I took leap of faith, trusted Niko and Christie, I have a new family with lifelong memories! 

❤️Guest:If you love Pickleball, enjoy amazing sightseeing, great venues, scrumptious food, and enjoy meeting fantastic people you must look at this trip!
