Tour Itinerary

You've seen photos of the ancient Athens Acropolis, dating back to the 5th century BC—now’s your chance to see it in person. You've watched the Olympics on TV—now is your chance to visit Olympia, legendary home of the first Olympic Games. You've dreamed of cruising in the Greek Islands—now’s your chance to sail into the deep-blue waters of the Aegean Sea and experience these islands yourself. All of this and more await you on this budget-minded Greece tour and cruise. Step back in time on your guided visits to many of Greece's historic sites. In addition to the Athens Acropolis, visit the archaeological site of Mycenae, dating back to 1350 to 1200 BC; the amazingly well-preserved, 2,300-year-old open-air theatre in Epidaurus, which still seats 14,000 spectators; and the medieval Byzantine Citadel of Mystra, a castle founded in 1249. You’ll also visit the spectacular mountain landscape of Meteora with its 24 rock-top monasteries set in almost inaccessible sandstone peaks. Spend the last days of your Greece vacation on a 4-night cruise on the Aegean Sea, cruising to some of the world’s most beautiful islands. Visit Mykonos, Greece's most famous cosmopolitan island, with its seafront village, sandy beaches, and whitewashed houses. Explore Kusadasi, Turkey, where an included excursion takes you to the fascinating Roman, Greek, and Byzantine excavations of Ephesus. Visit Patmos, where St. John the Divine wrote the Revelation; and Rhodes, one of Europe's largest medieval towns with ramparts and palaces built during the Crusades. Discover Heraklion, Crete, nestled picturesquely between two mountain ranges with archaeological treasures and spectacular scenery. Explore Santorini (weather permitting), a dormant volcano offering one of the world's most breathtaking panoramas. Picturesque fishing villages, sparkling blue waters, and ancient sites offer the perfect mix for a vacation of a lifetime. Your spectacular Greek tour and cruise is truly an affordable dream vacation!

Both tour directors were extremely professional and helpful, local tour guides were very knowledgeable with excellent english, bus operators were smooth and courteous

Several hotel rooms had virtually no AC.

As a comment to the room situation, we had excellent accommodations The Only Exception was the night that we spent in Sparta. That hotel was substandard. For instance the door knob to the bathroom was completely broken. The night table was missing the front of the drawer literally. The patio door did not lock at all. The view was not great at all unless you like looking at back alleys and transport trucks. And then the power went off for several hours. There were no backup smoke detectors or lighting. So we spent a couple hours in the lobby just to make sure that there wasn't really a fire. Anyhow I also commented the same way on the cosmos survey we gave to our guide :-) otherwise everything was 100%

loved our trip with cosmos. Some accommodations could use improvement but overall was satisfied.

This tour was close to perfection! A bit strenuous at times but worth it for the places visited and the knowledge shared by our personal guide who is by far the best tour guide many of us have ever had. She went the extra mile to make sure everything was in order for all of us. No one was disappointed with our guide and this tour!
