In Paros & Santorini the transfers & hotels were efficient & provided. However it would have been good if we were given suggestions of what we could do in those islands. We could not find anything interesting to do in Paros.

Whilst in Athens we asked the tourist guide what we could do fill the afternoon in Athens & in Santorini when we arrived there. We were told we could purchase a full day bus tour of the Island for 59 euros per head & that was a good tour. With the help of Reception at the hotel we booked a sunset cruise for the next day at 125 euros per head & that was excellent too.
