We have had reports of travellers being pickpocketed on public transport in Athens. Please be careful with your valuables while travelling on the metro or the bus.
Summer temperatures in Greece can reach up to 40°C, which can be uncomfortable for those not used to the heat. On the other hand, early in the season (April) many businesses may still be closed and the weather is unpredictable, however you may have some of the major sights of the Greek islands almost to yourself. Please consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
Due to the current financial situation, banking services in Greece could potentially become limited at short notice. This includes credit card processing services and servicing of ATMs. When travelling through Greece, please ensure you have more than one means of payment with you (cash, debit cards, credit cards etc.). You'll also need to have sufficient Euros in cash to cover emergencies, unforeseen circumstances and any unexpected delays.
As accommodation on this trip is twin-share, single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same sex. If you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement is available at an additional charge. Please ask your travel consultant for more details. Also, hotels in Europe often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together.

The Dubrovnik to Athens trip was an incredible experience that I would strongly recommend to anyone interested in travelling to the Balkans! It's a particularly great opportunity to travel to Albania and Macedonia before these countries get discovered by mass tourism as well as experiencing beautiful and less well known areas of Greece. One tip: stay an extra night in Athens or you won't have time to see all its incredible sights. Thank you intrepid for a great trip and in particular to our fantastic tour leader Peter!
