the Greek Isles..Tourtourtour on a shoestring Budget?

  Take yourself on a Greek Island Tour..island hopping all the way! There are many many options for hotels or other accommodation. Your tour company will advise the best in your area to suit your budget.

Greece features a vast group of islands, between 1,200 and 6,000, depending on the definition, 227 of which are inhabited. Crete is the largest and most populous island; Euboea, separated from the mainland by the 60m-wide Euripus Strait, is the second largest, followed by Lesbos and Rhodes. The Greek islands are traditionally grouped into: The Argo-Saronic Islands near Athens, the Cyclades occupying the central part of the Aegean Sea, the North Aegean islands off the west coast of Turkey, the Dodecanese between Crete and Turkey, the Sporades a small tight group off the coast of northeast Euboea, and the Ionian Islands located to the west of the mainland in the Ionian Sea.

Island hopping is best done on ferries which are fast and economical. Be prepared for crowds in summer though. When you arrive on an Island, transport is best done on scooters, motorbikes and ATVs so you can go literally anywhere for the least money! Walking is always an option so pack some comfy shoes and a good shady hat.

Greek food is inexpensive at local tavernas. Stick to where the locals eat, not the tourists and talk with the local owners and staff to discover amazing places to visit that only the locals know.

Local tour guides will also show you how to live like a king or queen for the cheapest prices. Check out on my site under Tours at

There are so many islands so allow plenty of time…but what’s your hurry?… the Greeks have been here for thousands of years.
