Greek Island Synopsis

Matt in Kea, GreeceMy Greek Island Synopsis is a guide that begins with a short description of each Island and links to more detailed information including hotels, travel agents, beaches, restaurants and places of interest. The Greek Island descriptions are indexed by island group.(Cyclades, Dodecanese, Ionian, Sporades, Saronic, NE Aegean) You can click on each island group and go directly to the descriptions. Some people use this page to decide where they want to go and then use my create-an-itinerary page to construct an island-hopping itinerary. It is easy, free and you are under no obligation to purchase. My Greek Island Guide is another page which has a photo of each island and direct links to the island page without the description for those in a hurry or are more inclined to choose an island by looking at a photo rather than reading a short description. So you have a choice on how you want to get information. If you have any questions or can't decide what you want to do you can always e-mail me and I will usually interrupt whatever I am doing and answer you (unless I am sleeping). I also have a Greece Itinerary Suggestions Page which may help you narrow down what you want to do on your Greek holiday.

Like this but different

Want to go to the Greek Islands but not Athens? Check out Fantasy Travel's Far From the Maddening Crowd which enables you to stay at the beach of the Apollo Coast just 20 minutes outside of Athens . Or if you want to skip the mainland entirely you can create your own itinerary with this form. I also recommend you look at Fantasy Travel's Greek Island Hopping Programs because you may find something you like at a price you did not think possible.

New Economical Packages: Fantasy Travel has put together a number of packages that offer quality accommodation for economical prices. Most packages that seem too good to be true are actually not as good as they seem, often using hotels that are in areas you really don't want to stay in, to keep the price down. But Fantasy's economy packages feature hotels in and around the Plaka in Athens and are all good quality hotels. I recommend Fantasy Travel's program The Pursuit of Pleasure which is 12 Days and 11 nights in Athens, Mykonos and Santorini including hotels, ferries, transfers, tours, admission to archaeological sites and breakfast starting at 940 euros per person. You can't beat the price for these hotels and this itinerary. For more visit Fantasy Travel's Special Offers Page

Greece Hotel Search: You can search over 3000 hotels on the Greek Islands by location, price, whether or not it has a swimming pool or is on the beach, and see photos, maps and customer 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 enables me to continue my work.
