Shore excursion providers - any recommendations?

Jump to last reply

Hi, four of us are going to Greece in early September on a 7-day cruise of the Greek islands followed by 2 days in Athens. Does anyone have some good recommendations for companies doing shore excursions? We can of course book through the cruise ship, but it's quite expensive, and if we can get the exact same excusions cheaper elsewhere, that would be perfect. We are going to Crete (Ay Nikolaos), Santorini, Patmos, Mykonos and Rhodes.

Since it's our collective first time in Greece, we just want to do the standard sightseeing tours on each island (I know, we will miss a lot, but that way, we get a good general sighteeing experience and can mentally note where we want to spend more time if we decide to come back in the future). We have about 6-8 hours in each port, so half-day sighteeing tours are best. Of our group of 4 people, my mom and aunt are in their early 60's and are fit but may find it hard to climb tons of steps or walk massive distances. Are there less strenuous tours available? My cousin and I could do the regular tours., but ideally we'd like to be with them too. Thanks!
