Greece , Turkey

Tour Itinerary

Enjoy the best of Greece and a taste of Turkey on this relaxing vacation. Enjoy a two-night stay in Athens where during your guided sightseeing a visit to the Acropolis is included before boarding your cruise ship and setting sail on the deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea for a three-night cruise. Highlights along the way include visits to the Greek islands of Mykonos, Kusadasi in Turkey, Patmos, Crete, and Santorini (weather permitting).

Day 1: Arrive in Athens, Greece.
Welcome to Athens!. At 6 pm, meet your Globus Host and traveling companions for a welcome drink.

Day 2: Athens
. Sightseeing with a Local Guide features a visit to the Parthenon’s crowning beauty atop the ACROPOLIS, the Erechtheum with its Porch of Maidens, the beautifully preserved Theseum, Roman temple of Zeus, theater of Dionysus, and the Agora where Socrates taught. Vistas of the government buildings and elegant homes in the modern city provide a striking contrast to the remains of the glorious past. The rest of the day is at leisure. How about a Greek dinner tonight? Your local host knows where to find local fare and entertainment reminiscent of Zorba the Greek. (B)

Day 3: Athens–Piraeus (Embarkation)–Mykonos.
Head for Piraeus, where you will sail into the deep-blue waters of the Aegean Sea at 11 am. Later, dock at the mountainous island of Mykonos with its characteristic windmills and dazzling white houses. Time to wander at whim through narrow paved streets before returning on board. (B,L,D)

Day 4: Cruising: Kusadasi, Turkey & Patmos, Greece.
Two ports of call today. First, Kusadasi on the Turkish coast. An optional excursion is available to the fascinating Greek, Roman, and Byzantine excavations of Ephesus. Next, discover the tiny Greek island of Patmos, where St. John the Divine wrote the Revelation. The 11th-centruy monastery with its valuable manuscript collection is well worth a visit. (B,L,D)

Day 5: Cruising: Heraklion, Crete–Santorini, Greece.
First port of call today is Heraklion on Crete. A few miles away is Knossos, the center of the 3000 BC Minoan civilization, and an optional excursion can be booked. Afternoon call (weather permitting) at Santorini, the “Black Pearl of the Aegean.” Join one of the optional shore excursions either to the volcano or up to the cliff-top village of Oia for one of the world’s most breathtaking panoramas. (B,L,D)

Day 6: Piraeus (Disembarkation)–Athens.
After breakfast on board, disembark at Piraeus and return to Athens. Tonight is your chance to enjoy an optional dinner in a romantic restaurant. (B)

Day 7: Athens
. Your vacation ends with breakfast this morning. (B)

Globus did a phenomenal job organizing the trip and fulfilling its objective as a people-to-people exchange. I have so many memories of our exchanges and the opportunity to experience the remarkable talent, dedication, and accomplishment of the people of Cuba.

By Joan S on Jan 20, 2017

The trip was well planned as far as locations of accommodations, sites visited, and information. The guides were very well-informed and answered all of our questions. I enjoyed the meals, but thought that they were a little large for this age group, as many of them were used to a light lunch. The food was good and the places we ate were a nice variety from farm to table to buffets at the hotels. It was good that we were warned about the lack of toilet paper and amenities. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone else.

By James W on Dec 03, 2016

Our trip to Cuba with Globus was great. Both the Globus Group Leader and the Cuban National Guide were excellent. The motor coach was very new (and very comfortable), and our driver was exceptional. The hotel accommodations exceeded our expectations, and all of the restaurants that were very good. We enjoyed the Cuban cuisine and the "welcome drinks" provided at each of the eating establishments (lunch and dinner meals). The "people-to-people" educational program gave use the opportunity to gain a better appreciation of Cuban culture (e.g., visits with artists, musicians, and a retired baseball player); history (e.g., walking tours of various colonial "old town" areas and discussions of ongoing renovation/restoration efforts, visits to major monuments, and our visit to the Bay of Pigs Museum); religion (e.g., visits to various churches and to a Santeria Temple); education (e.g., visits to a school and to a library); and economy (e.g., visits to a cigar factory, ranch, and privately-owned/operated restaurants). We also enjoyed the opportunity to attend a show at the Tropicana and our evening ride in a "classic car".

The price included virtually everything. The staff on the Avalon Myanmar had great attitudes and were always helpful & willing to please. This was a quality trip and most interesting.

OUR ICONS OF INDIA TRIP WAS MORE THEN WE EXPECTED. OUR TOUR GUIDE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO MAKE US COMFORTABLE AND BROUGHT US TO SIGHTS THAT WASN\'T EVEN ON OUR ITINERARY FOR NO EXTRA CHARGE. THE HOTELS WERE ALL CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE AND THE FOOD IN ABUNDANCE. WE HAVE ALREADY BOOKED OUR NEXT TRIP WITH AFFORDABLE TOURS!

By Josephine A on Oct 31, 2016

Had a great trip and going to recommend this trip to my family and friends. It never entered into my mind that our safety would be compromised. I felt so safe with the people who were responsible for our safety. The whole trip experience was excellent.

By Diana T on Oct 28, 2016

This trip was excellent. We especially enjoyed the Botswana extension. We did not know what to expect beforehand, but it was the least touristy part of the vacation and very wonderful.

By Montford N on Oct 24, 2016

Globus was simply wonderful. The tour was everything that I could have asked for and much, much more. I attribute this to my tour guide and the marvelous people who shared the tour with me. This was expected as I have travelled with Globus before and have been very pleased with them each time. In fact, when I went to Affordable Tours, I requested Globus.

By Lilian P on Oct 22, 2016

This tour with Globus not only matched our expectations, but exceeded our expectations. This was indeed an exciting trip. Globus has many very good tours, and they keep on adding to their roster. To me, Globus is a leading tour company. We have taken many tours with Globus and will continue to do so.

By Laura R on Oct 17, 2016

Our Globus Italian Treasures Tour was amazing! We had the VERY BEST tour guide! She was very informative, organized, fun, and caring! The only negative about our trip was our arrival in Rome. After we collected our baggage, there was very poor information on how to find a Globus representative!

By Hilarie B on Oct 15, 2016

The Cuba people to people trip was amazing! We learned so much about Cuba, their culture, government and the way people live. All the activities were very interesting and the people we met were friendly and hospitable. If someone is looking for US style hotels, they need to stay home. The only places we found where the people were not terribly accommodating were at the hotels. All our other encounters were positive. Cuba has a long way to go before they are ready for a huge influx of tourists, but if you can handle some minor inconveniences it is well worth the visit.

By Gennet P on Oct 14, 2016

Globus has consistently delivered great tours that help you enjoy your time abroad without the hassle of doing all the arrangements yourself. Hotels were all high standard and close to attractions. Just remember, this is a tour, not a vacation! You see a lot in a short period of time, so don't expect to have a lot of free time.

By Gina P on Oct 13, 2016

This is my 1st organised tour experience and it was great. Looking forward to booking another tour in the future.

By Ana Maria P on Oct 11, 2016

Hotels were city-centric. Although nice hotels, it seemed that as a single traveler and despite paying a supplement, my room was often smaller and without a view.
