      Tour Operators in Crete

      Greece May 11, 2015 at 3:53 PM

      To travel independently in Crete, not with a big coach tour, are there any companies providing small group tours out of Heraklion?
      In addition to Knossos, I'd include another days excursion to Phaestos and Gortyn.
      I am single, so private arrangements are to be avoided if possible due to cost.

    • Area to stay in Kavala

      Kavala May 4, 2015 at 7:24 PM

      Hello. I'm traveling to Kavala for the first time with my husband and two sons (ages 7 and 10) in August. We want to visit all the main attractions in Kavala and surrounding areas but unsure of what area to stay in -- whether it is the city or by the beach. I think we may need to be near the water just to have a relaxing activity at the end of the day. What do you recommend? Thank you!

      Hi! I'm going to Aegina island on Wednesday and I'd like to know some "must" places I have to visit. Our hotel is near the harbor but we are going to rent a car for one or more days and some bikes, do you think is it a good choice? Can you recommend us some beautiful beaches / restaurants / places? I was also thinking about a trip to the island of Moní is it difficult to realize?

      How much time?

      Delphi May 21, 2015 at 4:55 AM

      Ok, here is the question. How much time does the site deserve? I am history and archaeology person.
      1 tour said 1 hour for the museum and 45 minutes at the site itself. Most 1 day tours give 2-3 hours, splitting the time between the museum and the site. Also, none of the 1 day programs go to the Sanctuary of Athena.

    • Seaside Hotel/Apartment in Karfas?

      by acfink77 Online Now Jul 25, 2011 at 3:58 PM

      I am looking for a seaside hotel or apartment in Karfas. Anybody have any good recommendations?

      I gather from these forums that Karfas is a quiet seaside town with enough tavernas to occupy your evenings. Are there any other similar towns on the island of Chios? Any similar lodging recommendations in those towns?

      Many thanks.

      Hello,
      I will be coming by ferry to Chios from Cesme, Turkey. Does anyone know if you can bring across a rental car from Turkey?
      If not, was is the best and most affordable means of transportation? Car? Motorcycle? Taxi?
      I'll have two days there and I'd like to visit Mesta and Pyrgi. I'd also like to stay somewhere other than Chios town. Please advise.

      Coming to Chios Oct 23, 2010

      by Cruiseone2003 Online Now Oct 12, 2010 at 7:17 AM

      Hello, I'm arriving in Chios (The cruiseline spells it Khios) on 10/23 by cruise ship and only staying for the day. I've been reading the Chios Forum for things to see and do and didn't find an answer to my question so I decided to post them here.

      We are four persons, mid 40's, we won't have a car and will not rent a scooter. We'd like to go to a beach, swim and have some local food and beer; easy peasy right? Are there beaches in the town of Chios or nearby?

    • Stay in Chios town or other village on Chios

      by palioklima Online Now Jun 6, 2009 at 3:18 PM

      I will be with my bf in Chios from 18 Aug to 27 Aug. We like to stay in a place that is central and fun for night time, but not to noisy or commerical, and sitting out in the morning. Chios town seems not so pretty and a little commerical - not beautiful like other port towns (like Syros town, or Symi town). Kombos looks appealing and so does Mesta, but are they too quiet - no restaurants for night, etc, or would we need to drive to Chios town?

    • travel around Chios

      by aeleland Online Now Oct 13, 2008 at 7:34 AM

      My husband and I are traveling to Chios for one day, off a cruise ship in November. We are in our early 60's and well traveled (never been on a cruise before) We do not usually like group tours, so we thought of going off on our own. How do we get around the island to visit the villages? I am particularly interested in local arts, textiles, and folk traditions. Of course we both love local food.
      How do we hire a driver for the day? What villages do you think we should visit and where should we stop for a good local meal?
      Any suggestions welcomed.
