Rack up some extra Greek island experiences in just one day on this trip visiting Aegina (Egine), Hydra, and Poros. While it's just a taste of each, it's also a great way to familiarize yourself with the islands for a longer stay.
Highly sophisticated? Then this somewhat kitschy show is probably not for you, but for the rest of us, it's a fun evening filled with life-embracing clichés. You have to do one of these on your first trip to Greece!
Traveling alone? This can be a great deal if you like being met at the airport and having everything arranged in advance. If you're part of a larger group, you'll probably save money hiring a taxi at the airport.
The price on this is so low that it's worthwhile for almost anyone. You have the advantage of being met at the the airport and taken directly to your hotel.

I have a passion for volcanic islands, whether they're in Greece, Hawaii or Iceland. This Greek island, Nissyros, is a relatively rare one for visitors and its unique geography makes it unforgettable. The tour departs from the Greek island of Kos.
This day trip visits all the major sites on Kos, including the famed Asklepeion, the temple of Asclepius, the god of healing.
Spetses is a famous island, renowned for its redoubtable lady admiral, Laskarina Bouboulina. Some called her a pirate, but you won't hear that on Spetses, where she is revered as a patriot. This is a fun and easy way to get to an island that is often overlooked by visitors.

This longer 4-day trip to mykonos from Athens includes a day trip to the ancient archaeological preserver on the adjacent island of Delos - so you can throw in some culture for the folks back home.
