Activity holiday in Greece
Memorable parts? Hiking in Zagoria. Tips? Try the superb Greek wines. Local benefits? All of these - local food products/local guides used/food at mountain village tavernas. Solar power for hot water and heating. Overall rating? Absolutely superb. Beautiful accommodation. Excellent food. Wonderful host. Some of the best hiking I have ever done. Gorges, ancient bridges, stunning walks along mule tracks which are hundreds of years old-all of these made the holiday unforgettable.... (more)John Harris
From €690 excluding flights
Writing courses in Greece
Our Yoga in the morning with wonderful views, our teacher Shelley Weiner, our Demos in the mornings, our writing course and our fun evenings with singing, dancing and auctioning. Vaso's food was also a memorable experience. Our boat trips were also brilliant. All in all, very beautiful place, very interesting people and participants and very helpful staff. (more)Alexia Papageorgiou
The instructors, the food, the town, the people who ran it... It was the most perfect holiday. (more)Maya Van Kirk
From £545 - £1245 excluding flights
Sifnos walking holiday in the Cyclades, Greece
Excellent...we stayed at a family run guesthouse, ate at local taverns, tried local products, used public transport and walked to get to places. We cleaned up a beach after having a picnic. Our guide in general provided useful information about the local flora and fauna, the culture, economy and environmental issues (more)Xenia Karantani
Very interesting and enjoyable. We're very pleased with the experience. The hiking was great exercise. However, I think the most memorable part will be the good company we had in Annie Antonatou, our guide and host. (more)Deborah Pearson
From £525 - £583 excluding flights
Greece cycling holiday, archaeology tour
Memorable parts? Going to Mycenae by cycle and a very enjoyable evening at one of the recommended restaurants with live music in Nafplio. Tips? Be aware that there are some hills to cycle up and you will be covering about 30mls a day. The bikes have suitable gearing for the hills. Be aware that there are some feral dogs in Greece. Local benefits? Yes and the holiday company supports reforestation following the countryside fires in 2007. Our final hotel did not appear to operate... (more)Christine Mitchell
From €698 - €728 excluding flights
Laconia cycling holiday in Greece
Memorable parts? I recently completed the Discover Peloponnese cycling tour in Messinia. It was a fantastic trip and this question took some thought -- quite a few memorable and exciting aspects within the six days of cycling in some beautiful and historic locales. If I had to highlight one part, my choice would be the day I cycled from Petalidi, on the Gulf of Messini, south to the town of Koroni with its charming waterfront and impressive Venetian castle. The course then took me back... (more)Andrew Wallace
From €735 excluding flights

From £799 - £979 including UK flights
Sailing holiday in the Aegean Sea
There were so many highlights it is hard to pick out the best - snorkelling in clear blue waters, visiting deserted beaches, wandering through the streets of ancient villages far away from all the tourists, eating marvellous local food, seeing ancient ruins, sailing under starry skies.... (more)Madeleine Minto
Awesome! I recommend everyone to try it. (more)Ruben Campos
It exceeded my expectations on all points. Great atmosphere, great company, delicious food, hilarious moments, beautiful moments, new friends,... Writing this down, I miss it again. (more)lijs beke
From €590 - €720 excluding flights
Sailing holiday in Greece, Mykonos to Santorini
Memorable parts? Great scenery and views, superb to see the coast from a boat. Tips? Be aware that although a sailing trip, there is not much sailing. Local benefits? No. We motored a lot rather than sailing (due to time constraints and being able to get to places to do things). Overall rating? Very good although I was disappointed that there wasn't much sailing. But great way to see the Amalfi coast. I don't think I would do the same trip again or a similar one. (more)Karen Fenton
From £895 - £1020 excluding flights
Sailing holiday in the Ionian Sea
Every moment on the boat was highly enjoyable, the islands we travelled to were extremely beautiful, the food was exquisite, the sea so clean and blue as you would only imagine on postcards. The most memorable moment of the holiday was a night swim and snorkel amidst the luminous plankton. (more)Carolin Sommer
Fantastic we were well looked after, and very welcome on board the sailing boat. Swimming and sailing also the Greek food and Taverna's recommended by Annie and Satera were fantastic. (more)Vanessa Sutcliffe
From €590 - €720 excluding flights
Luxury Greek Island holiday accommodation
Pretty much perfect!.....The tranquility, the love and care in every detail and the warmth and generosity of our hosts. (more)Michelle Aloof
The wonderful view of the sea from the cottage, and the fantastic swimming in the clearest, blue sea water i have ever seen ... Just go - you will be rejuvenated! (more)Raju Bhatt
The estate is absolutely beautiful and we really did feel at home. Overall - great holiday! The most exciting thing was hiring a boat and exploring and discovering deserted coves in this beautiful, unspoilt island. (more)Francesca Gill
From €2495 - €4950 per week (sleeps 4-6)
Peloponnese family activity holiday in Greece
It was lovely and authentic, not mobbed with foreign tourists, we felt we got to meet local people in their setting. Fabulous part of Greece with so much to see and do. Tripoli is not a tourist destination, which was nice in some ways but we stayed there a little long, the hotel could do with a pool, could be nice to also have a couple of nights elsewhere. (more)Julie Dickerson
Absolutely wonderful. Every day was different, but wonderful. We really enjoyed the scenery, the food, the people and the activities. (more)Angela Terrill
Fantastic holiday. Will certainly go there again. We spend the following week in Creta and enjoyed beaches and diving. Will have to there again to see other Greek wonders, including vineyard and olives trees. (more)Celine Bergeron
From €820 excluding flights
Sailing & conservation holiday in Greece
The whole experience was wonderful. Sotiris, our skipper was fantastic , very professional, kind and fun. This holiday was wonderful...it could not have been better...we should have stayed longer. It really was a very unique experience, very special to me. (more)Joanne David
Excellent! Every aspect was amazing. My partner and I are both deeply grateful to everyone who works for the operator for making such a special and memorable experience. We will almost certainly be booking up again! (more)Alison Crawford
A fabulous holiday. Sotiri and Melita were delightful and knowledgeable hosts. Annie who did the reservations was efficient and friendly. The boat was well equipped, safe and comfortable and the fellow guests good company. (more)Susan Sargeant
From €774 - €860 excluding flights
Peloponnese holiday, cultural tour in Greece
Excellent...Getting to Mycenae early enough to go straight to the top of the sight and having five minutes absorbing the atmosphere on our own. (more)Nicholas Rigby-Jones
The mountains around Nizwa in Oman and the night spent on the dhow off the coast near Muscat was the most memorable. (more)Vicki Neech
From £1399 - £1445 including UK flights
Villa holiday in Crete, Greece
Memorable parts? I went on holidays with my 96-year-old mother, which is memorable in itself... At the last minute she had some health problems so it seemed we had to cancel the holiday but she was so keen to go! And we had a great time. Tips? Get a car to go around, the place is unreachable otherwise and not easy to find if not with very clear directions; by night almost impossible. Local benefits? The environmental impact is definitely low, no air-conditioning and solar... (more)Laura Palmucci
From €24 - €70 per room per night
Cyclades sailing & walking holiday in Greece
10 out of 10 based on the companionship, weather, knowledge and sheer good fun that was had by both of us during this holiday. (more)Rebecca Coker
First-rate. A great and memorable experience. It also introduced us well to the people of these smaller islands and their way of life. Happy to recommend strongly. (more)Lawrence Holden
One night we went swimming off the boat and saw stars in the water. It wasn't a reflection of the sky but light that tiny sea creatures gave out when we touched them. When we came out of the water it seemed that we were sparkling too!...A rare and very special holiday! (more)Janet Grimwade
From €774 - €860 excluding flights
Lesvos holiday accommodation, Greece
Memorable parts? Just being able to completely relax and read and enjoy ourselves. The sea is beautiful and clear. The whole atmosphere of the place is very chilled. Batteries definitely fully recharged. Tips? Vatera, Lesvos is a place to go if you want a completely chilled 'do nothing' kind of holiday (which we did). It was perfect for our needs because it enabled us to wind down, read a lot, swim a lot, and not a lot else. If you like a holiday with things to do or lots of exploring... (more)Emily Hunka
From €35 - €99 per accommodation per night
Family sailing holiday in the Cyclades, Greece
Memorable parts? Jumping off the boat into the beautiful blue sea, the stunning scenery & sights enhanced by our knowledgeable guide and sleeping under the stars. Tips? Take less clothes than you think you need and more books!! Local benefits? Yes. Our guide arranged meals at local tavernas on some evenings and told us that he varies them each trip to share the income around and keep quality up. We were encouraged to use local shops and produce and discouraged from littering... (more)Maria Nichols
From £890 including UK flights
Walking holiday in Tinos, Greece
Memorable parts? It's impossible to just pick out one thing. The places we stayed were well chosen and really nice to be in. The walks were all wonderful - varied and interesting. The instructions beforehand and those for the actual walks were excellent and included lots of information about the island. Our manager was very knowledgeable and friendly and efficient and made it possible for us to walk on our own in places we would not have otherwise ventured, knowing that we had total backup... (more)Hazel Hayhurst
From £531 - £575 excluding flights
Walking holiday in Naxos, Greece
Memorable parts? Discovering Greece through Naxos. Tips? That your advice was excellent and accurate. Local benefits? It was some income for locals who are on hard times between their debts and Euro needs. The islanders seemed to feel that a return to the drachma was not an option. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Leaver
From £531 - £575 excluding flights
Walking holiday in Amorgos, Greece
Memorable parts? Arriving on foot at some of the the most ancient settlements in Greece and having them all to ourselves. Walking on old mule tracks through the mountains, eating picnics by sacred water sources, swimming in the turquoise Agean. Tips? We enjoyed being able to customise this holiday to suit our level of fitness and we built in quite a few days of lazing around on the beach as well as walking. The weather in late September was still fairly hot so walking early was a... (more)Helen Grove-White
From £605 - £655 excluding flights
Walking holiday in Crete
Excellent!...The beautiful scenery, excellent guide and amazing Greek food. (more)Anne Robson
The highlight was the group-- a great bunch; and the scenery (more)Lisa Najavits
From £979 - £980 including UK flights

Greek Islands sailing holiday, Dodecanese Islands
An excellent break......Sailing to some really beautiful, off-the-beaten-track islands and swimming and exploring. (more)Gillian Crawford

Great relaxed enjoyable trip. I loved the flexibility of the Skipper too...Enjoyed getting in there and helping as needed - putting on the new mainsail was a memorable experience - thanks Sotiris! (more)Louise Whiteside
From €531 - €590 excluding flights

One of the best holidays we have spent in Greece, and we have been many times. Koroni is a beautiful unspoilt town. (more)Corinne Bushby

"I visited the island of Gavdos for the first time back in 1994 as part of my usual summer holiday. It was a long journey from Athens to the southernmost point of not only Greece but also Europe. A unique and unforgettable experience, my journey to the island deeply enriched my understanding of travel and tourism, its meaning and impacts to the destination area. I was so amazed by the natural beauty, history and local life style that I went back for 4 years in a row. I felt the need to study this magical place so in 2000 I took the same journey to complete a two-month in-depth research on how tourism affected their life and environment. I aimed to present the hosts' point of view because it is their place we use for our holiday and it is them who have to deal with what we leave behind once we're gone. A tiny island (hard even to spot on the map), Gavdos lies in the middle of the Libyan Sea with a permanent population of approximately 60 inhabitants. Covered by 60% of flora and a stunning combination of rocks, dunes and pristine beaches the island has today become the place myth for modern travelers. Far from what we consider a technologically advanced world but with a rich and exciting history, landscape and culture, the island attracts more and more visitors who seek authenticity, spontaneity and a contact with nature and people." Read more of Villy Ioannou's article about Gavdos in this Greece holiday article.

"At the Gaia production plant, formerly the old school house in the village of Kanadas, the members are juggling a whole host of projects and special orders. Outside in the organic garden, a production line of women are harvesting red peppers, eggplant and tomatoes and piling them into crates. Some vegetables are loaded into a van to be sent off to area restaurants while others are stacked up in the foyer for production. Inside, maneuvering in a maze of small rooms with limited workspace, one team is monitoring an industrial-size mixer filled with sweet red pepper dough, while another pair divides finished mounds into smaller rounds, which are then delivered to the production room to be divided into thumb-print pieces and lined up on massive racks to dry."
