Hi Annie1128 & donnyb,
First of all, i just wanted to let you know that i really enjoy reading your postings. Thank you so much for the time you put into answering our questions.
I will be travelling to Greece in mid september with a friend (both female in our late 20s). We are flying into athens, going straight to mykonos for 4 nights, then to santorini for 4 nights. I had several questions if you wouldn't mind answering:
1. donnyb, i noticed you were from toronto...could you recommend a travel agency in toronto we could deal with. Or do you think we can book it all ourselves using the internet?
2. We would like to stay in a hotel close to mykonos town so we could walk to the hotel after going out at night. We would like to spend around 100-150 euros max. and have a balcony or terrace with a view of the town or the sea....I know it's a lot to ask for.
Some of the hotels i was thinking of were adonis (got great reviews on this site), pelecan hotel (recommended by annie1128...but no reviews...do you know anyone that has stayed there), can you think of any others? or which one of the two would you choose?
3. We want to take the hydrofoil/ fast ferry from mykonos to santorini. A travel agent quoted us a price of 59 euros. Is that the price of a oneway ticket? Do the fast ferries run daily in september? And do you still recommend we purchase the tickets when we arrive in mykonos?
Thank you in advance for your help. Can't wait to read about your trip Annie1128. Hope you have a wonderful time!
