      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!

      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.
