We are hoping to plan a 10 day trip to Greek Islands in August(only time we can go). Would also spend 1-2 nights in Athens. I have been to Athens, Mykonos, Santorini in May, but my kids have never been. I know it is the peak travel time, so we need to start planning soon. Just wondering:
1. Is it so hot and crowded that it doesn't make sense to go in August?
2. Island recommendations for teen boys(ages 16 and 18)? Also is it best to take a ferry from island to island?
3. We would also consider a greek islands cruise. Was wondering if anyone had recommendations about their experience with this and possibly names of companies.
thank you very much!
