Travel Agencies

Kalodoukas Holidays In the absence of an official tourist office, this helpful agency, at the foot of Kali Strata, is the next best thing. It also rents houses, sells tickets, organises excursions and offers yachting services.

Symi Tours This agency, just behind the southeast side of the harbour, organises excursions, including island bus tours and boat trips to Datça in Turkey. Also provides yachting services and sells ferry tickets.

Symi Visitor Very friendly agency, just off the southeast side of the quay, with a fine roster of rental properties and a full-service laundry.
