Greece Travel Secrets

Travel Tips and Information
for Greece and the Greek Islands

Who better to share Greece's Travel Secrets with you than two award-winning travel writers: Mike Gerrard and Donna Dailey

Between us we've written over 50 guidebooks for publishers including National Geographic, the AA and AAA, Insight Guides, Michelin, Thomas Cook, Moon Handbooks and Dorling Kindersley.

We've written guides to Greece, Athens, Crete, Corfu, the Greek Mainland, the Greek Islands... you name it.

We've also written about Greece for newspapers and magazines worldwide, and have won several awards for our books and our travel writing and photography. We're also Contributing Editors at 101 Holidays.

Here are some of our guides:

So if anyone knows about Greece, and can tell you about the best hotels, restaurants, museums, archaeological sites, and best holidays and vacations there, it's us. Between us we've covered almost every inch of the mainland, and most of the Greek islands too. We love Athens, we love retsina, and Mike has even worked as a Greek waiter on the island of Zakynthos: Please leave bigger tips, he says.

Feel free to contact us with any of your queries, or suggestions for places we might include.
