      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!

      Holiday houses / Hotels / Bed & Breakfast in Aegina?

      Aegina Island Apr 26, 2015 at 7:52 AM

      Hi everyone, I'd like to have some recommends about a place to spend 3 nights on the island of Aegina. I will go there with my mom on 28th of May and we will leave on 31th, I'd prefer to stay in a holiday house or a bed & breakfast but also an hotel would be okay for us; we would like also to find a place near the port of the island because we don't know very well how to move and by staying there it would be easier.
      Ps. it would be better if the price it's not so high! :)

I am 61 and am just a little nervous as it is the first time I have travelled on my own. I am travelling light with a backpack though - pretending I am still young I guess, because I don't feel very old yet!

      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.
