According to a survey conducted by the Greek Tourist Organisation (GTO-EOT), 9 out of 10 foreign visitors to Greece say they are pleased with their stay in the country. The survey, which was was carried out by QED Market Research on a sample of 2,179 people at 13 entry points in Greece on behalf of the GTO, showed that a vast majority of the respondents rated their experience in Greece as either very good or excellent. The survey was conducted between October 12 and 24 and involved personal interviews with male and female tourists aged from 20 to 60 at 10 Greek airports.

36% of those entering Greece via airports said their stay in Greece exceeded their expectations, compared to 31% of road tourists. 6 out of 10 responded they would probably recommend Greece as a tourist destination, while over half said they would return to Greece. The average stay of visitors entering Greece via airports was 8.2 days, while road tourists stayed just under 3 days. The main reasons for choosing Greece as a holiday destination were the mild weather, the affordable cost and fewer people during Autumn over other competing destinations. 6 out of 10 air tourists says the sun, sea and gastronomy were their main reasons for picking Greece, while half said they liked Greece for the hospitality and the natural beauty of the country.

Half of the road visitors mentioned the food and shopping for their reasons, while 9 of 10 air tourists and 6 of 10 road tourists said they visited Greece in Autumn for recreational reasons. Finally, culture is also considered as an important factor for visitors to choose Greece.
