The high speed ferries tend to be less reliable when it's windy ( they will have more delays) but the boats are all more or less the same. Which ferry you take depends on where and when you want to go.
This year we went with Bluestar from Santorini to Paros (no delay), from Paros to Ios with Seajets (1,5 hour delay), Hellenic from Ios to Sikinos (1 hour delay), from Sikinos to Santorini with Zante (no delay)

We have used several ferry companies in Greece and have had varied experiences with each and event good/bad with the same company.

Here is a list of some of the more popular ferry companies that operate in Greece:
- Blue Start Ferries
- Hellenic Seaways
- Minoan Lines
- Sea Jets
- Aegean Speedlines
- Golden Star Ferries
- Zante Ferries
- Alpha Lines

These are some that come to mind! Hope this helps!!🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇷

I have never paid attention to the ferry company names when I have taken ferries, and they all feel the same to me. Mostly, I use whichever one as the ferry time that I need.

Make sure to book your covid tests early for traveling to Greece!

As rules are changing for every country (including Greece) I suggest that everyone book their COVID tests early because everyone is scrambling last minute to book theirs, especially during the holidays. Greece now requires a negative PCR test taken 72 hours before arrival to Greece. This new rule has recently come into effect for many countries as well, as before only unvaccinated people needed to take a covid test. I hope everyone to stay safe and wish everyone happy holidays!

What is your favorite itinerary for a 1 week family trip to Greece?

If you were to plan the perfect vacation to Greece with kids, what would you recommend? I am looking for something exciting with lots of sightseeing and activities, and of course, the beach! I like to take my sons to some museums and cultural centres because I like to keep them educated and learning even while were traveling. That's actually one of the reasons why I like to visit Greece. So many of my friends like to stay pent up in resorts but I find that its too limiting and it ends up even being a little boring. So if anyone has advice for where I can go for a week with my sons I would really appreciate it!

Travel requirements for Greece and Cyprus updated!

To enter Cyprus and Greece, you are required to have a negative PCR test. Both countries are also requiring that you fill out specific forms when you enter. You should also bring a proof of vaccination that is preferably translated into English or Greek. Some people usually carry these on their phones, but I also think it's best to have a copy printed on paper just in case your phone dies, also some border officers are a little more old-school and might prefer a paper copy.

Greece just introduced an outdoor mask mandate!

As a result of the increase in cases of omicron, the Greek government just introduced an outdoor mask mandate meaning that everyone must wear a mask both indoors and outdoors regardless of where they are. This will change things up, but it will protect the public as more and more people are getting sick. It's not the biggest deal ever though because it is wintertime and it will be much easier to wear a mask versus the hot sweaty summer. Stay safe everyone!
