Hello!

Trying to plan a quick visit to greece, just want to see Athens, Santorini and Mykonos. Anyone know of a good 4-7 day tour?

What's greece like? A safe country if travelling alone? Ta :)

I was in Athens and Mykonos for about a week and a half last summer, traveling alone as a 44 y.o. woman. Don't like to generalize too much but I found the men to be quite aggressive and more emotional than men in the States. Heard way more men yelling at each other than I ever have in my life. I felt pretty safe in Athens but I was more on my toes in Mykonos. Just be strong and if a guy is bothering you, make it clear that you don't like it. While I was staying at the Paradise Beach resort, I witnessed many young girls getting sweet-talked (and not so sweet-talked) into hooking up with the local guys there, especially after the clubs were letting out and the guys were desperate to get it on with any girl. Not trying to talk you out of visiting Mykonos because it's a nice place overall and I enjoyed the beach and the town at night. Just letting you know that the guys are aggressive and you can't be weak there. If you are looking for a party and want to meet super hot guys it's a great place. If you are conservative and don't like getting hit on, it might not be the place for you. I was told Santorini is less of a party place.
