Tour Itinerary

Some things are just better together—ouzo and ice, tzatziki and pita bread, Sun Gods, and pure sunshine. We combined our enlightening tour of Classical Greece with our rejuvenating Island Hopper vacation to create the ultimate Greek getaway. History and harbors, ruins and resorts, and wisdom and waves come together as you trace the steps of ancient philosophers and athletes in Athens, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora, and more before digging your toes in the sand at two of the most glamorous islands in the Aegean. Magnificent Mykonos, with its iconic 16th-century windmills, and serene Santorini, with its picture-perfect whitewashed villages, warmly welcome guests to experience the vibrant cuisine, fiery sunsets, calm waters, and pulsating nightlife. Pack your swim cap and your thinking hat for this tour of Classical Greece where cities and seas collide.

Great trip love it all can't see so much on your own

As a matter of fact, the next trip was booked before this trip occurred, and we are already looking forward to the one after that!

I did not like the food at the last hotel before Athens - I think it was Kalambaka. Also, there were too many tour groups at meals - it felt like a zoo sometimes. Otherwise, loved the accomodations at all other places, especially in Mykonos and Santorini. Lovely places, all of them.

The first week of the tour was very fast paced and we covered a lot of distance and information. Definite learning experience. The group was in a different hotel every night, meals were buffet style and usually consisted of the same types of food. I would have liked to try local restaurants instead of same buffet line each night. Last week was more relaxed, more of a shopping experience on the tourist islands. We were not informed of the excursions for the last week until we were there so it made it difficult to plan money wise ahead. In all it was a fantastic time!
