What percentage of people went Island Hopping on your trip?

27 Sep 2007 Jess asked

Hi guys! I'm thinking bout doing this tour mid next year, and I'm not sure whether to do the Greek Island Hopping??? It's going to be hard to get that much time off work, so my preference at the moment would be to allow a few extra days in Athens at the end then maybe check out Prague before heading home, but I know if most of the friends I made on the tour were heading to Mykonos and i was leaving I'd be pretty shattered...<BR><BR>Can anyone share their experiences? How many people to the Islands option on your trip? Anyone not do it and regret it? And for those who went, how was it? Worth the extra time and money? <BR><BR>Would love to hear from anyone who wants to put in their two cents!<BR><BR>Thanks =)<BR><BR>Jess<BR>Melbourne, Australia<BR>European Vista, Dec 28th 07<BR>London to Athens, June 08????

    Hey Jess,

    I’m kinda in the same boat as you… still not sure whether to add on the GIH to the tour or to do my own thing around the greek islands… so hard to decide!

    I’ll let you know if I hear anything by word of mouth!

    My friends and I are doing the London to Athens from the 30th of April and once that finishes we’re spending 6 days on Mykonos. Our hotel is the Lady Anna. It’s beautiful and reasonibly priced.. I’m sure we’ll have day trips to the other Islands as well.

    We figure it will the most relaxing way to wind down our holiday!
