Who is going to Greece in August/September?

21 Jun 2011 Explorer1261551 asked


I'm planning on going in August but don't know which tour I should do. I would want to go to Mykonos, Santorini and Ios (and more?) I also want to go around Europe afterwards. Anyone with similar travel aspirations? I want to go solo but it would be good to meet some people also doing the same thing! xx

    Hi! I am also considering a solo 13d greek island hopping trip. Looking at september, because i read that jun-aug would be crowded as it is their summer hols. And sept is autumn, so less hot.
    I am from singapore. Abit apprehensive that i will be the only asian traveling alone. So will be great to know if there are others flying fr singapore.
    I will only be able to do 13d greek, cant extend beyond to explore other parts of europe. Hope my first contiki trip comes true this sept. beams

    I’m going to be going on the Aegean Classic (5 night) Greek island hoping tour departing Aug 21. I’m travelling solo also, and will be heading to Italy and France afterward. I’ll be returning to Canada on Sept 11. Allie

    I’m going on the Spotlight on Greece + 3 day island cruise leaving the US on Sept 4th, starting in Athens on the 5th. There are only two of us (me + 1) that have commented on this trip so far, but I understand from the travel agent that it is already a definite departure.

    Hey, I’m going on the Spotlight On Greece + 7 days cruising leaving on Sept 4th, Athens on the 5th…. So Julie, I guess I’ll go check the page and let you guys know I’ll be on your tour at least for the first part :) I have also met some people online either on the land part or the cruise part. I guess my tour is really 2 different tours so it gets confusing.

    Don’t stress about the protests, just stay away from govt buildings if you can. my bfs dad has just been to athens for a month and he didn’t see any trouble.
