Who's doing Paros as a package ?

We have been to Paros many times in the past. But not since the crash of Excel.

No one seems to be advertising the island any more.

Does anyone know of a company that is still getting people out there from Manchester ?

Greeksun (www.greeksun.co.uk) and Hidden Greece (www.hidden-greece.co.uk) both offer Paros although whether they have flights from Manchester I don't know.

I don't think anyone does escorted packages anymore; but as the above poster mentions , there are agents who will book flights and hotels and give you travel directions.

With the new Athens airport and computerized ferries lone travelers find it much easier these days.

I would book flights with Easyjet* into/out of Mykonos, (or Manchester-AThens if someone operates that route, sorry just noticed you are in Manchester) buy the ferry to/from Paros/Athens, buy Paros accom myself.

*assuming they are doing that route again next year

You can fly direct to Mykonos with Thomsons from Manchester but they do not do package holidays to Paros. You would then have to ferry between the islands which may involve having an overnight stay on Mykonos on either the way there or you way home.

Hi

Olympic holidays have package holidays to Paros from Manchester.

As the above poster suggests Olympic Holidays fly to Santorini and then by ferry for their properties on Paros.

Easyjet fly Manchester to Athens (at the moment only showing flights until end of June) and Olympic Air fly twice a day Athens to Paros; international and domestic flights use the same terminal (there is only one).

Thanks to everyone for your replies. I'll give Olympic a try.

My other Greek 'destination of choice' has always been Santorini. Perissa in particular. I had considered using Santorini as a local terminal and using the ferries.

Good luck to all for next year, and may your hotel beds be free from bugs.

Hello labmech

You can always go independent. Fly into Athens or Mykonos and then take a ferry to Paros (or anywhere else - Santorini). It is very easy to book ferries and find accommodation on the islands - as long as you are not travelling in the late part of July or August. Choosing a package may be easy but it is quite restricting.

Enjoy
