I sincerely hope by commencement of the next season proper laws, rules and regulations are in place to be fair to all travellers,I doubt very much if anyone has the power to do anything about this in Mykonos!😂😂
 
Sadly if not regulated, some will charge what the traffic will bear. We should always follow the lead of the locals.

Most certainly Deborah and how right you are,big changes coming soon in Greek Tourism Industry as a whole including timed, controlled entrances in Parthenon, how on Earth they will implement this?...on the point of what the traffic can bear in Mykonos,some places don't even accept reservations as they are 'pre booked'!!!.. Don't ask how much they pay for them?😂😂

Greek Islands Food Tour?

I am a foodie and I love to cook. Does anyone know of any food tour situations that I can do in the islands, or maybe island hopping?

I am in the midst of planning an exciting adventure to Greece and am particularly interested in experiencing the country through its cuisine. I've heard that island hopping offers not just stunning views but also a taste of local flavors that differ from island to island.

With so many beautiful islands, from the renowned Santorini to the charming Skopelos, I'm looking for recommendations on food tours or culinary experiences that are part of island hopping packages. Any recommendations you may have would be great!
