2018 is your year! It is your year to travel. It’s true: The more you travel, the more you grasp the reality and facts that there’s so much of the world still to discover.

Greek cuisine has a cooking tradition of around 4,000 years and is a major slice of the history and culture of Greece. Its tastes change with the time of year and its topography however, are always considered delicious!
Whether you’re after street food or fine dining, Greek food continuously has a vibrant array of flavours. We think that trying the local cuisine is one of the most important things about travel, and your stomach will be happy for it! Here are 10 must-eats in Greece.
We are a sucker for a good sunrise or sunset – no two are ever the same and the colours make for the perfect Instagram photo! Seeing the sky gracefully morph is such a memorable experience and here’s where to see the best around the world.
Sailing in Greece will ruin your life. You will never want to leave the crystal clear waters, the soothing gentle rocking of the boat or feasting on freshly-caught seafood. We all know the better the holiday, the harder it is to transition back to reality – most of us dread returning to our nine to fiver.
Packing the right things can really make or break a trip and we want to make yours. Here we’ve compiled a list of things to throw in when you’re packing for Greek island hopping:
Going to Greek islands, there is no way you will miss Mykonos and Santorini, and should you not! The Mediterranean atmosphere never leaves you alone, either when you are chilling by the sea side, partying by beach clubs or relaxing in the pool sipping a cocktail. Incredible food, breath-taking view and the perfect summer holiday! Here is how I made my Greece tour an ideal holiday.
Discovering Mykonos and Santorini
The Greek islands of Mykonos and Santorini has spread their fame to many corners of the world, and continue to receive more and more attention as years pass. On the Best of Greece tour by Travel Talk, I had crazy fun and precious memories in many islands, but these 2 stole the crown!
The Mediterranean hosts hundreds of mind-blowingly beautiful islands with many attractions. Some of the islands have gained an international reputation extending to all corners of the world, whereas some kept it more intimate, but no less better! When you sail the coast of Turkey and other Greek islands, you will agree, that it is not all about Santorini and Mykonos!
Few experiences compete with Greek island hopping. Perhaps it’s the diversity of the Greek islands and the fact that they each have their own distinct identity and unique charm. Perhaps it’s the culture and history of the country, and how visitors often find themselves immersed in the ancient tales of this once mighty civilisation. Or perhaps it’s something far more straightforward, the process of sailing through sparkling blue waters and past some of the most idyllic coves and hidden bays in the continent.
Why Greek Island Hopping?
The more conventional summer break is to find one area and stick to it. Greece is remarkably well suited to that type of holiday, but there is something wonderfully adventurous, not to mention diverse, about Greek island hopping. When you explore the Greek islands with Travel Talk Tours, you can expect a holiday experience where no two days are the same and where you get a chance to really get to know the islands and uncover their unique appeal.
