Island Hopping in Cyclades

Jump to last reply

Must say up front that I got interested in such a trip after being asked to do a 7 day biking trip across 7 Greek islands, only I wasn't interested in the biking portion of the trip!

Now I find myself planning my 2nd trip to Greece in late June/early July this year and traveling with 2 other women; ages range 50-60.

At this early point, planning on only doing islands--Mykonos, Naxos, Paros, and Sifnos; 3 nights at each island. Sent a request into travel agency through Matt Barrett Website. Was surprised at the high cost that came back as compared to the prices I saw when checking the same individual hotels. Also, with respect to ferry schedule, the itinerary seems doable.

So far my travel companions are fine with me doing initial research, but I'm feeling like I need to get us more focused on the practical/logistical side of this trip. Also should mention that because the airfare is so high ($1400 out of Boston), we are hoping to save money on accommodations along the way.

Things I get most anxious about are ferry connections, strikes and number of nights at each island. I'm wondering if we should drop an island and add nights to others. Any opinions? Also, is it beneficial to use travel agent for ferries and hotels? I am normally an independent traveler, but the ferry schedule and desire to make hotel reservations ahead of time makes me lean toward using a travel agent. Be interested in hearing others experiences and opinions.
