First read my article: Why Greece? But most guidebooks are as confusing as Athens seems to be for those unfamiliar with it. Not my Athens Survival Guide. My Athens Guide makes the city and surrounding areas simple and enjoyable by following my steps and just doing what I do. It includes restaurant reviews , hotels including areas to stay and areas to avoid , archaeology sites , beaches , Photo Tours that will help you understand the city, reliable travel agencies , day-trips , shopping , nightlife , and hundreds of other subjects, all in beautiful Technicolor.
You can print out the whole thing and take it to Greece or use it on your iphone or whatever media device you bringing with you. It is the only Guidebook you will need and it is free and easy to use. Visit my Athens Survival Guide BEFORE you visit Athens Greek Island Guides I have written a brief review on all the islands and turned it into a web page that links to more detailed Greek island information including recommended hotels, beaches, restaurant reviews, archaeological sites, history, nightlife and museums and whatever else there is to do on the islands, plus which islands are easy to get to from which other islands, an important thing to know when you make up your itinerary.
If you don't know much about the Greek Islands this will give you some idea of what each has to offer.

Visit my Greek Island Synopsis which has a paragraph about each island and then a link to my guide for that island. Or you can just go to my Greek Island Guide which lists the islands by group with a photo and a link to the page for each island. If you know which island you want to visit, then you may find that page easier to use.
If like many travelers to Greece you are just trying to find information about Mykonos and Santorini you can just click on those links.
But you may be missing out if you think that these are the only islands worth visiting in Greece. Many people use the Greek Island Guide to research their trip before going to my Create-an-itinerary page where they can fill in a form that tells which islands, how many days, category of hotel, tours and so on and an agent comes back with a price for that trip.
It's a pretty creative way to plan your holiday and you are under no obligation to buy so at least you will know what it is gonna cost and which islands you can get to without too much hassle. Read my step by step approach on "How to go to a Greek Island" which will tell you how to do everything from the moment you leave your hotel, to buying metro tickets, ferry tickets, finding your boat, going to an island and getting home by dinner.

For those who know there is more to Greece than the islands have a look at my Greek Mainland Guide. Index of My Greece Websites I am continually adding and updating this page and the hundreds of other Greece pages to which it is linked.
Blue Guide Greece the Aegean Islands
There were over pages of information last time I counted, so for easy navigation there is an index at www. It is the best way to find your way around my site.

Yes I know it is confusing that there is a Greecetravel. By the way, I do all my pages individually, by hand and there are no pop-up ads, cookies, or tricks to make you click on something you don't want to.

I am a real person who goes to Greece regularly, not a computer program designed to promote Greece, or some guy who visited once for a week and wrote the ultimate guide. Using Travel Agents in Greece I definitely recommend using a Greek travel agency for your trip to Greece despite the appearance that booking on your own seems to be so easy. The fact is that the booking is easy. It is only after you get to Greece that you may discover that there is more to booking hotels and ferries than booking hotels and ferries.
Every hotel in Greece has their own website these days and the quality of the web design does not always reflect that of the hotel. Unless you are back-packing and prepared to sleep anywhere, a trip to Greece is a lot easier if you work with a travel agent who knows what they are doing. They can organize ferries, flights, transportation to and from airports and ports, find the right hotel for you, deal with any unforeseen circumstances, answer all your questions and in the end save you time, money and your sanity. You can choose from dozens of itineraries or you can create your own and by using my website you should have a pretty good idea of what you would like to do.

Read more about using Greek travel agencies and meet the ones I recommend. I also suggest you try my Create-an-itinerary page where you can choose islands and tours and click submit and get a price back from the travel agency with no obligation to buy. Greece Hotel Search and Automated Booking For those who have been wondering if I was ever going to get an automated hotel booking site in my guide for people who don't want to go through a travel agency you can stop wondering. I still urge travelers to use reliable Greek travel agencies but if you want to do your own hotel arrangements at least you now have that option and the prices are as low as you will find anywhere and many of the hotels you can cancel with no cancellation fee.
Plus they donate to my site whenever someone books. So if you appreciate the work that went into this website please book using the links to my recommended travel agents and Booking. If you want to get a second and third opinion save the hotel page and come back to it after you are satisfied that this is where you want to stay.
See Matt Barrett's Hotel Search and you can find exactly the hotel you need or close to it. You can also use my old hotel directory at www.

Villas and Houses I resisted for years but I could not fight it any longer and I hope my friends in the hotel business will forgive me but I have put together a page of Villas, Holiday Homes, Self-catering Apartments and Air BnB type accommodations. Yes I get that there are good reasons for staying in a house or apartment instead of a hotel, especially if you are a family, and you are not just being anti-social.
Yes, I know that some people may not want to go out for dinner every night like I do when I am in Greece and may want to have a meal or two at home, or at least breakfast.
I get it. And because of that I have created Matt's Villas Page. Important Note : There is a lot of information on my website and it is all free to anyone whether you booked through the travel agents, the hotels or Air BnB. But it is the commissions I get from hotel bookings on my affiliate website with Booking. So my request to you is that if you are using other sites to book hotels and apartments and using my websites for everything else and are thankful for the information you have received from it please think about donating whatever you can afford so I can continue to be creative.
If you are appreciative of all the free information you get on my websites you can send a donation through Paypal. What's New on Greece Travel for ? I have several new pages that I have completed just in time for the summer season, though some of them are for things to do any time of the year.
Also close to the same topic I have a new index of Licensed Tour Guides and why you should use them. I have also revisited and updated my Santorini Guide , re-wrote and added new photos to my Pelion Guide , and I completely redid my Greek Island Synopsis. I also added several islands that I only had limited information about with the assistance of some very talented locals.
Am I forgetting anything? Oh yeah, I added some stuff to Marc Dubin's Guide to Ipiros and I wrote a page about Metsovo which was probably my favorite place of See Matt's Metsovo Page. And finally And when I discovered that I had somehow become a senior citizen while I was not paying attention I took lemons and made lemonade with Greece Travel for Seniors.
Fantasy Travel has put together a number of packages that offer quality hotels for economical prices. Most packages that seem too good to be true are actually not as good as they seem, often using hotels that are in areas you really don't want to stay in, to keep the price down. But Fantasy's economy packages feature hotels in and around the Plaka in Athens and are all good quality hotels.
I recommend Fantasy Travel's program The Pursuit of Pleasure which is 12 Days and 11 nights in Athens, Mykonos and Santorini including hotels, ferries, transfers, tours, admission to archaeological sites and breakfast starting at euros per person. You can't beat the price for these hotels and this itinerary. Or their 8 day package that includes a 4-day cruise plus Athens-Delphi-Meteora which starts at euros per person. Fantasy Travel has a special package for 4-Days and 3-Nights at the very popular 5-star Volcano View Hotel starting at euros per person. Not per day!
For all 3-nights! So if you have been frustrated with the prices at the hotels with caldera view you should jump on this deal because it won't last. If you have mobility issues or you are that age where you just want to take it easy and enjoy Greece without climbing stairs and mountains this is a good choice for you. Aegean Blue: Athens-Naxos-Santorini This Special offer Day program features 3 of the best hotels in Greece and many extras at the best value for money price.
Not that I have ever been on one.
