I'm considering hiring a driver with a sprinter car (6 person car) for my family while we travel in Greece but I don't know if it's worth it or really expensive. Have any of you done this in Greece before and is it feasible?

I have never done this as I would not really know where to do this. When in Greece I have always either rented a car or taken a taxi (that is if you can get one LOL)...thanks for stopping by!

We hired a private company to greet us at the airport and get us to Piraeus for our ferry. Can’t remember the name though! Sorry.
Found them online before we left the US and they were sooooo friendly, helpful, and spoke English for us. We were only 4 people, but maybe they have larger vehicles and could do multiple trips for you!

I think this is a good option, if you can find a trustworthy company

My family has hired taxi drivers before on the spot if we had a good feeling about the driver. We hire the driver for short rides, then feel it out. If we get a good vibe then we ask him/her for his rates if we hired for the whole day.
 

What do you think of these essential Greek travel tips?

I would love to know what everyone thinks of these Greek travel tips, and if they are actually true and helpful. I feel like many people have so many biases about different countries, and they can have a completely different perspective from a local or the actual truth. Please let me know what your opinions are in the comments!


Spetses is amazing for shopping!

I haven't heard of many people talk about Spetses on this forum… Which is super strange because it's one of my favourite islands! It's very easy to get to from Athens, and the shopping is just amazing. There are very unique boutiques, with handmade items from Greece, Italy, and Turkey. They are a little bit pricey, which is why I recommend that you try and barter if you can. Here are some of my favorite stores...

- Sea+Sun Spetses
- The Yachting Club Boutique
- Pasiphaë

What are some Greek work from home tips?

I’ve been considering being a traveling nomad ever since my company switched to being fully remote. I would love to do this in Greece, but I am a bit skeptical since I have never visited for more than two weeks. Has anyone from abroad started living in Greece during the pandemic? Or do any Greeks have advice on what transitioning my life and work would be like? I live in Australia at the moment but have little to tie me down here. Thank you everyone

Make sure you book in advance! Greece is fully booked this summer!

I can't say this enough! Please make sure that you book way ahead of time for your trip to Greece. I've been looking for hotels and flights, and almost everything is booked. The only air B&Bs and hotels that are left are either extremely expensive or very remote. It seems that people have been at home during Covid, and are feeling to get to Greece. This is a lesson learned for next year. Good luck to everyone!

Milos island is becoming more popular than ever!

I'm not even surprised that Milos is one of the most up and coming Greek islands this summer. So many of my friends are planning on visiting, and I have some cousins who went last year and have nothing but rave reviews. The island is pretty small, and known for its amazing beaches. As you can see in this video, it almost looks like you're on mars. The crowd is a little bit older, and the island is more slow paced and quiet. So I wouldn't recommend it fora younger group looking to go out a lot. Personally, it sounds like a great time to me!
