Greek Island Guides

Kamares, Sifnos

Most travelers to Greece want to visit the Greek Islands. This page has links to my Greek island guides and some of the most popular Greek islands along with helpful information that will make planning your island-hopping trip easier. If you are not sure which Greek Island you want to visit because you know almost nothing about them see my Greek Island Synopsis which has a paragraph or so on each island and then links to more detailed information. There is also my Greek Island Guide which has photos and links to each island without the descriptions for those who have a pretty good idea of which islands they are interested in. There are some links to practical pages at the bottom of this page such as ferry schedules, suggested itineraries and my Create-an-itinerary form where you can choose the islands and how many days you want to spend on each and send it in and get a price with no obligation to buy. If you need assistance with hotels and coordinating ferries see my Greek Travel Agency page. You can also use my Greek Island Hotel Search which uses the Booking.com search engine and is a great way to find and book hotels if your itinerary is not too complicated. You can use Ferryhopper to get schedules and book tickets.

Itinerary Suggestions: Can't make up your mind? Go here and let me help you decide which islands to visit

Support the People of Lesvos: Visit Lesvos

Amarandi in Sigri, LesvosYou have read about the flow of refugees coming to Greece, many of them landing on the island of Lesvos. The people of Lesvos have been helping the refugees, rescuing many at sea, giving them warm clothes and food as soon as they come ashore, and assisting them on getting to the administration centers in Mytilini so they can be registered and continue their long journey to the rest of Europe. You can support the people of Lesvos in a couple ways. You can donate to organizations like The Starfish Foundation who have been helping refugees from the very beginning. Or you can come to Lesvos and visit what I think is the most beautiful island in Greece, where you can eat, drink, swim and if you feel like it volunteer to help. Because of the negative press international tour and cruise companies have abandoned the island, which is silly. Lesvos is as beautiful and enjoyable as ever and the people of Lesvos don't deserve to suffer economic hardship because they have chosen to assist refugees instead of turning a blind eye. So consider Lesvos as the island to visit this summer and support the people who are actually helping the refugees. See my guide Lesvos: More Than Just Another Greek Island.

Smart Cruise 7: This 12 day cruise program allows you to spend 2 nights in Mykonos before going to Ephesus, Turkey, Patmos, Rhodes and Crete, ending with 2 nights in Santorini! I am not a cruise type of guy but I recommend this one.

Budget Island Package: Mykonos and Santorini for an unbeatable Price including transfers and ferry tickets and more

Step-by-Step Guide for Going to a Greek Island: Very helpful for beginners traveling on their own.

For those who don't like cities, Fantasy Travel's Far from the Maddening Crowd puts you on the beach in Faliron, a short bus, tram or taxi to the sites of central Athens before sending your to Mykonos and Santorini.for 6 days and nights.

You can find hotels in Greece by location, price, whether or not it has a swimming pool, and see photos and reviews by using this link to Booking.com. Excellent prices and many hotels you can book and then cancel with no cancellation fee. For those who want to book without using a travel agency this is the best way to do it and the small comission I make on your booking enables me to continue my work.

Create Your Itinerary Form: Try it. Its Fun and Easy. You fill out the form and within a few hours a trusted travel agency sends you a price based on your budget. You are under no obligation to buy so you may as well try it.
