This tour was absolutely fabulous!
I had the most fun!
It was quite a large group 66 people including 2 tour managers, but was still incredible despite the size.
Athens, the first stop, a bit boring but it's good to see. The plaka dinner option is good for only one reason the dancing, food quality was not the best at all, if you're on a budget I wouldn't recommend this optional!
Next stop Mykonos. Ah Mykonos what a place!! It was incredible, all the extras are worth while here! Hotel here is amazing an if you're hungry the tavern next to the beach across from the hotel is supper supper delicious!! Get most of your shopping done in Mykonos, there is so much there and the biggest variety you will find.
Santorini is after Mykonos, Santorini is supposed to be the quiet time between party raging islands Mykonos and Ios. Haha this is not so. Santorini has just as many cool places to party. I didn't do the volcano extra, couldn't walk that day due to injury but heard the view was nice but it was a bit pointless. The Santorini day tour is pretty cool, the wine tasting is so boring but the rest of the day is good. If your not up for it you can just as easily do it yourself by hiring quads or scooters!
Perissa beach is awesome and the red beach is really funky to see.
Ios is the last island stop. The 'far out spa' is a great place to stay, ladies I totally recommend booking yourselves in for a massage, the cleopatra was amazing! Amazing views from the hotel the only bitch about it is ALL the stairs!!
Ios is party central! Definitely do the water sports and the boat tour!!
This tour was incredible, you can make it as busy or relaxed as you like which was great! The best destinations, although I would spend less time in Athens and more time on the islands, my only bad thing to say about the tour.
I would give it a 10/10 I can not reccomend it enough!
