Best time to be there
The mainland and islands are very hot and dry in July and especially August, the preferred travel month for French, Italian and Spanish holiday makers, making conditions busy, hotel availability limited and the beaches crowded. May, June and September are infinitely more comfortable and generally less expensive.
Rhodes, with its refreshing westerly winds and moderate summer heat, makes it the ideal place to travel for a summer holiday or a short break in the spring or Autumn.

GREECE WITH A&KIt's the type of local knowledge that tops off a glorious day. So glorious you had to tell us about it. After a hot afternoon touring Mykonos with its sun-pickled white architecture and 16th century windmills, you needed a drink. More precisely you needed a cocktail. The island was teeming but the A&K guide weaved our party through the throng towards the sunset hotspot of Little Venice, where the perfect waterfront table with the perfect sunset view had been kept free. Your sundowner was served.

Having just returned from a truly wonderful trip, I wanted to tell you how impressed we were with your part in this. (Debbie Rawnsley)
We loved the itinerary, we loved the service levels, we loved the guides and above all we loved the experience of this unique culture with its overwhelming ‘otherness’, its politesse, its perfection its precision, its history, its gardens, its architecture and its charm. So, well done
