Just a note to say thank you and to let you know how much I appreciated being your customer.
You took care of all my questions/queries promptly and efficiently and in a way that I felt I was valued and would be taken care of.
I appreciated that you personally called when you found that my balloon ride had been cancelled.
I enjoyed that my tour was 'personalised' - that I could follow my own dates to be at various locations and not just be bundled on to a tour that was not flexible.
Your travel centre took great pains to make sure I was a satisfied customer, thank you very much for a wonderful experience in Turkey.
Thanks again to you, Michael and your staff for a great trip.

When to Go
From July to August, soaring temperatures are guaranteed. While this is ideal for sunbathers, anyone who wants to explore cultural or historical sites should confine their walks to morning or evening and avoid the peak of temperatures from 12 noon to 3pm.
Aside from these months, January to June and September to November are ideal, although evening temperatures require a light cardigan or jacket. December to March is the coldest months but destinations like Athens are still popular for all year round city breaks.
Currency and Spending
Greece used to be a cheap country until the introduction of the Euro. It is still possible to travel on a budget but travellers should look out for the small establishments serving cheap food and avoid centres where prices of drinks etc are more expensive. An average budget per day is 90 euros including accommodation, food and transport. This can increase with fees to museums and historical sites. Our Greece tours range from budget to luxury and you can see the full range here.
