Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

This is where it all began – the literature, art and laws that have shaped western civilization as we know it today. You won’t need to imagine great philosophers debating their truths in the corridors of the Agora, between the columns of the Parthenon or with the Oracle of Delphi. You’ll get to see where this happened first-hand on this 8 day adventure to the heart of ancient empires and the sun-kissed shores of the Greek Isles.

Countries Visited

Greece , Turkey

  1. Day 1
    Arrive Athens
    Athens was once the center of the world and for a short spell it will be the center of yours. Arrive at your hotel and spend the rest of the day exploring the Greek capital your way. Evidence of the city’s former status as the 'Cradle of Western Civilization' can be seen around every turn, so lace up your walking shoes and pound the pavements in search of the artistry, architecture and archaeological treasures that have made Athens a popular stop for history lovers. Later, meet your Travel Director and fellow travelers.Accommodation: Zafolia, Dorian Inn, President Hotel
  2. Day 2
    Athens sightseeing – Delphi
    Today you’ll come face-to-face with the impressive ancient backdrop that followed you throughout yesterday’s solo sightseeing – the Acropolis. A Local Specialist joins you for a sightseeing tour through what remains of the ancient citadel, including the Parthenon, dedicated to the goddess Athena. View the Panathinaiko Olympic Stadium, the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arch, stopping at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to admire the curiously clad Evzone guards. Later, follow the road taken by the ancient Greeks who once sought the wisdom of the Oracle, arriving in Delphi for your overnight stay.Accommodation: Nafsika Palace
    Meals:   Breakfast
  3. Day 3
    Delphi sightseeing – Kalambaka
    Walk the Sacred Way to the Temple of Apollo – the same path that Alexander the Great once trod, demanding to hear that he would conquer the entire ancient world. Your Local Specialist will reveal the ancient site’s captivating history and some of the Oracle’s prophecies, many of which would eventually come true. You’ll also discover Delphi’s fame as the host of the Pythian Games, dedicated to Apollo and the arts. A scenic drive takes you to Thermopylae, most notably the site of the heroic defense by King Leonidas and his brave Spartans against the invading Persians. Later arrive in Kalambaka, where you dine tonight at your hotel.Accommodation: Aeton Melathron
    Meals:   Breakfast   Dinner
  4. Day 4
    Kalambaka – Meteora – Athens
    The mystical monasteries of Meteora cling almost implausibly to the rounded rock towers that overlook Kalambaka. Joining a Local Specialist this morning, you’ll visit this heavenly Eastern Orthodox complex, built by monks in the 14th century to stave off attacks from the invading Turks. Return to Athens later this afternoon where the rest of the day is free to do as you wish. An Optional Experience this evening could see you indulge in tasty traditional cuisine. Join your new friends for a taverna evening including dancing and drinks.Accommodation: Zafolia, Dorian Inn, President Hotel
    Meals:   Breakfast
  5. Day 5
    Embark 3-night cruise – Mykonos
    Set your watch to the laid-back pace of the Greek Islands, boarding your three-night cruise through the Aegean where your only priorities will be good food, good friends and good times. With that in mind, your first stop ticks all the boxes as you enjoy your time on Mykonos rambling through the narrow streets of Chora, sharing the sun-dappled courtyard with lazy cats and welcoming locals. You could choose to join an optional countryside tour with a Local Specialist, visiting several of the island’s beaches, the 16th-century monastery at Ano Mera and Little Venice with its brightly painted wooden balconies overlooking the old harbor. Your cruise sails east to Turkey through the night.Accommodation: Aegean Cruise
    Meals:   Breakfast   Lunch   Dinner
  6. Day 6
    Kusadasi – Patmos
    A brief brush with the Turkish coast transports you back in time to what remains of the incredible ruins of Ephesus. Walk down the pillar-lined Curetes Street towards the ornate façade of the Library of Celsus and view what remains of the Temple of Artemis, one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Your next stop is Patmos, most famously the location where the disciple John wrote the Book of Revelation in the New Testament. See the Grotto of the Apocalypse first-hand when you join an Optional Experience with a Local Specialist, with time in medieval Hora to stretch your sea legs.Accommodation: Aegean Cruise
    Meals:   Breakfast   Lunch   Dinner
  7. Day 7
    Crete - Santorini
    You may choose to visit the Palace of Knossos, revealing insights into Minoan civilization several thousand years before Christ. Alternatively drive deep into the beautiful countryside and experience the true flavor of Cretan lifestyle. The dramatic volcanic landscape of Santorini rising out of the deep blue Aegean is our final destination today. You’ll have time to join an Optional Experience to some of the island’s villages which cling to the volcanic cliffs, including Oia with its distinctive white buildings and blue-domed churches which vie for the best views over the caldera.Accommodation: Aegean Cruise
    Meals:   Breakfast   Lunch   Dinner
  8. Day 8
    Disembark – Depart Athens
    And just like that we’re back in Athens after an exhilarating encounter with ancient Greek history and laid-back island life in the Aegean. You’ve seen the haunts of Socrates, Aristotle and Plato and admired many of the world’s greatest ancient treasures. Close the curtain on stories that span several millennia as you disembark your cruise ship.

This was an awesome trip! It exceeded my expectations and the bus driver and tour director could not have been any better! They were both great! I look forward to traveling on another Costsaver Tour!!

I had a wonderful time with this trip. The travel director set up the tone and pace of the trip is the best. He was never flustered and gave us updates. Our drivers superb driving kept us safe. We were given keepsakes and snacks from different regions we visited and it was a pleasure to have these. The tour was fantastic. It was hectic, but was well organized. We were 40 travellers and we had a blast. Hope to travel with you soon.

This was a great trip. It included things that I never would have chosen on my own that I really enjoyed. The tour director was great. I would use CostSaver again. Great value.

I will strongly refer your company to my friends and relatives

Steve our travel director is excellent! He went above & beyond to give us a trip of a Lifetime. Very well organized and had some fun activities while on the road to make our ride time less boring. Very professional and courteous but treat everyone like Family. Very knowledgeable about geography & history of the places we were visiting.

And looking out for our luggage's safety. I would definitely recommend to my friends & Family and I will book a trip with Costsaver again.

Hotels were even better than expectrd. We saw do many and wonderful attractions.

The trip itinerary was very detailed. From the booking to the end of my trip I was totally satisfied. It was my second trip, but I think I will book my future trips again. The trip director and all local guides were very knowledgeable and had great sense of humor, never boring. The optional excursions were excellent.

If people would ask me if I got my money's worth, I would reply that I got much much more than my money's worth. My trip was beyond wonderful, beyond amazing, beyond breathtaking.... Trent Plaine gave great background history of every country we visited; he took us to places morning noon and night... if there were places on the way out of a country he'd have us visit them and stop for great views. He was knowledgeable on flavors, food... the road trip was fantabulous!

The trip was well organized,the director Annarika is excellent in all aspects .our driver Marco is excellent too.They are both highly recommended in the fields they chose.In my next travel I wish I will be with them again.

Another excellent trip from start to finish. I am looking forward to my next trip already!!

We had a great experience with this company on this tour and would recommend this trip to anyone.
