Travel Agent when booking?

by karennevett1957

Hi there, this is my first posting and i hope someone can advise me. I am looking to go to Symi at the end of May and have looked online to book however, the few agents who go there are very expensive. So i would like to know if anybody who has travelled there before could recommend a good travel agent and is it best to book hotel and apartment/hotel and flight seperatley or as a package.
Thanks in advance

You need to go to Rhodes, from there you pay a small 10 Euro to get to Symi.

by Catamaran, or 2 hours by Large boat. Take the Cat.

If you looking for accomodation try this website out

I know the guy who runs the Website, an old freind from Sydney who has been living in Symi for years.

Hi, we have been to the beautiful island of Symi a couple of times and both times we booked a cheap two week package to Rhodes then went over to Symi for a few nights mid-holiday. We stayed at the Opera House Apartments which were really nice and cost 50 euro a night. The ferry fare was 15 euro return each.

A word of warning - don't leave your return crossing back from Symi to the airport until the last minute. On the day we returned to Rhodes last September the ferry was initially cancelled due to rough seas. Apparently it is very tricky to dock in Rhodes in certain conditions even though the sea looks calm at Symi.

I travel to symi very often, my advise is bok independently find your own accommodation and make your own travel plans. Fly to Rhodes and take a ferry from there.

Because I go so often people often ask me about flights here is all the options.

I'm not a travel agent, just someone who travels this route very frequently.Symi is a wonderful place, have fun. Maybe I'll even see you there.

As you glimpse the perfectly formed harbour of Symi island town for the first time you are confronted with a beautiful picture-postcard Venetian village. Wonderfully well-preserved houses huddled together as they cling to the steeply rising hills beyond. Symi island in the Dodecanese of Greece, has a true romantic charm enhanced by the lack of any high-rise hotel developments that can be found on other islands.
The waterfront is home to the souvenir shops with the usual displays of T shirts, greek art,... There are couple of shops that are specialize in a wide range of dried herbs. This is also the area where most of the islands tavernas can be found. On Symi island, you will enjoy beautiful bays and pebbled beaches that are best reached by small boats that leave frequently.

Memories of Symi

by miman

We all have memories etched into our minds and Symi will add one more to the list. As the Rhodes ferry swings around the last headland, a fantastic sight opens up. Apparently slipping down the barren hillsides, gathered all around the great horseshoe curve of a superb natural harbour, are tiers of yellow - and ochre-coloured houses, interspersed with the white walls and bright red roofs of churches. The houses are not typical Greek village houses but two- and three-storey neo-classical structures, in fact buildings of stature. It is these houses, built in Symi's golden days when the islanders grew wealthy on sponge-diving and boat-building, that now are being restored, one by one, for the island's growing numbers of visitors. And the Greek authorities have placed a preservation order on the whole town to ensure the magical beauty is not lost. So for the perfect Symi holiday, find a house with views, a balcony to enjoy them, and lie back for a week or two of complete relaxation, punctuated perhaps by a climb up the Kali Strata steps, to explore the maze of lanes in Horio, or a trip by sea taxi to the beaches of Pedhi or Aghios Nikolaos, to bask in the baking heat of the Aegean summer, or overland to the white monastery of Panormitis. Symi is a tale of restoration, preservation, relaxation, imagination... The town of Simi alone has thirteen major churches and dozens of chapels, some dating back to the Byzantine era.

Despite there being a lot of steps to climb from Yailos to Chorio via the Kali Strata white stone steps it afforded some lovely photo opportunites and you notice different things going up as well as down ;-0

Bustling Harbour

by steventilly

SYmi harbour is a bustling mixture of all types of boats, from cruise liners and big ferries, down to the smaller fast ferries, yachts, gullets, fishing craft and water taxis. There's always something going on in the harbour, until evening when it quietens down and then there's just the lights onboard the yachts in the harbour as their crew enjoy an evening in harbour.
