      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.

      Holiday houses / Hotels / Bed & Breakfast in Aegina?

      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! :)

      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.

    • Samos - Mykonos Ferry October Schedule

      by leeliauw Online Now Sep 10, 2011 at 8:16 PM

      Hello,

      Does anyone know if there is a ferry on October 4 (Tuesday) from Samos to Mykonos. I kept on checking Greekferries.gr website, but it looks like they only have it till the last Tuesday in September. I am so worried because Oct.4 is less than 4 weeks away and I am now suspicious that maybe there is no ferry.
      I don't know whether to continue to wait not knowing if the schedule is published later or there is just no ferry, in which case, I should change my itinerary.

      If anyone of you know what the situation is is, please help me out with the info.

      by lxkd Online Now Jan 17, 2007 at 10:52 PM

      Hi! We need to get from Kusadasi in Izmir to either Mykonos or Athens in April this year. So far we have only been able to find a (rather expensive!) ferry that goes from Kusadasi to Samos. A couple of questions:

      1) From Samos is there any ferry that we can take to get to Mykonos or Athens? So far none of the major ferry websites like http://www.ferries.gr/ and http://www.greekferries.gr/ seem to have such an option. In fact, how DOES one get out of Samos by ferry to any of the other major Greek islands? Is Samos being listed under another name on the websites?

      2) Alternatively, is there any ferry that goes straight from Kusadasi to Mykonos or Athens (or any other major Greek island)?

      Being able to book the tickets online or at least book in advance would be a great plus. Thanks in advance for the help! Really appreciated.

      warm regards
