Why travel with us?

Exceptional Service

We offer top class service with a trained and professional trip leader always accompanying the group to handle any request or emergency.

Safety First

Our journeys are always built with your safety in mind. We use private cabs for transport & city center hotels for stay. We also collaborate with tourism boards for local support.

Small Groups

Our groups are deliberately small. We believe such groups make for better shared experiences. Start off as strangers but come back as friends for life.

Blast from the past

Check out highlights from our last group trip to Greece, led by Trip Leader, Malvika. Not only did the ladies explore Athens, visited ancient and mythical landmarks, ate fresh seafood, went dancing, and laughed a lot, but they also made friends for life along the way.

Touchdown Athens! You’ll be welcomed on arrival at the airport by our representative and then driven in a private coach to your hotel. (Please note that group arrival transfers are provided based on the suggested flight schedule, if you choose to arrive at a different timing than the rest of the group we can assist you in booking a separate transfer at an additional cost or you can make your own way to the hotel).
 
In the evening: bond with your new travel crew and trip leader at a welcome dinner. Time to try some traditional fare, and toast to an amazing holiday together!
Kalimera! After breakfast, it’s time to visit the Acropolis, the most iconic landmarks of Ancient Greece. Everyone from Jacqueline Kennedy to Jennifer Lopez fell in love with it, and as you wander amongst the famous white marble columns and visit the new Acropolis museum, we’re sure you will too.
 
Next, visit the Olympic Stadium, the Parliament and University Campus for a photo stop.
 
Then: a mini roadtrip from Athens to Nafplio, along the coastal road of the blue Saronic Gulf. It’s a beautiful drive, with something special to see at almost every turn.
 
On the way, we’ll make a short stop at the Corinth Canal, a man-made marvel, and then journey to Mycenae, which was the city of King Agamemnon, who led the Greeks during the Trojan War (yes, the one with the wooden horse).
 
From there, we’ll continue on to visit Epidaurus's ancient theatre that’s famous for its acoustics. Allegedly, you could clearly hear the smallest sound – a deep breath or a piece of paper being crumpled – all the way up the last row of seats.
 
We'll stop over briefly in Nafplio before dinner.
After breakfast, we’ll head out around 8.30 AM towards Olympia, the world-famous site of the ancient Olympic Games.
 
First, we’ll visit the archaeological site and the Archaeological Museum of Olympia that houses over 3500 years of history and artefacts. Keep an eye out for the exhibit of the winged goddess Nike (also known as Victory) who, it was said, would come down from the sky to hand a palm leaf to the winners.
 
We’ll then go to Rion via Patras, crossing over one of the longest multi-span cable-stayed bridges in the world on our way to Delphi where you can check-in to the hotel and have dinner.
A delightful day in Delphi is in store today!
 
Led by an expert, we’ll explore the ruins of this famous site, which was considered as the center of the world by the ancients and was the site of the Temple of Apollo and its famous oracle (no longer in business). Today, it’s one of Greece’s most sacred sites and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Afterwards, we’ll visit the Archaeological Museum.
 
Then, enjoy some ‘me time’ to explore Delphi and have lunch (on your own). Recommended: don’t miss a chance to try local specialties such as arni sta klimata (oven-baked lamb on vine branches) and horiatiki salata (Greek salad), if you spot them on a menu.
 
Then we’re off to Kalambaka in Meteora. Try to snag yourself a window seat on the coach as Meteora is one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world, where tiny monasteries balance on immense sandstone rock pillars that rise dramatically from the plains like giants.
 
We’ll check in at our hotel in Kalambaka and have dinner.
This morning, we’ll explore a little more of Meteora, taking in more of its monasteries and landscape that seems straight out of a myth.
 
We will then return to Athens via Thermopylae and the towns of Kamena and Vourla, with lunch in a local taverna on the way. The drive should take around 4 hours, which means that you will reach Athens around 7:00 PM.
 
In the evening, you’re free to explore the city on your own. You may want to head to Plaka for a bit of shopping and then why not go bar hopping (on your own)? After all, Socrates did say “One of the best ways to learn about a country is through its alcohol”, didn’t he? With the ladies, stop by bars to drink everything from ouzo (Greece’s national drink) to raki (a Cretan distilled drink). Cheers!
Gear up for an early morning, we’ll be leaving around 6.15 AM (with packed breakfast boxes) to catch the ferry to Santorini!
 
Legend has it that is the site of the lost city of Atlantis and, whether that is true or not, with clusters of white-washed houses trimmed in blue and more glorious sunsets than any island has a right to, Santorini sure feels like its real-world equivalent.
 
A local representative will greet us upon arrival (around 1:00 PM) in Santorini and chauffeur us to our hotel.
 
In the evening: we’ll make our way to the sugar-cubed white and blue houses of Oia for dinner and to watch the sunset. The view from the cliffs is one of the most famous in the world. Sit back and watch as the sun slips into the sea; it’s an explosion of colour.
Explore the island with your trip leader today, so get ready for brilliant shades of blue everywhere and plenty of glorious Mediterranean sunshine.
 
On our route: Megalochori, one of the most beautiful and traditional villages of Santorini, Perivolos Beach, famous for its beach of black, volcanic sand that borders the turquoise waters, and a winery from which you’ll have a panoramic view of the island, volcano and Aegean Sea.
Set your watch to island time and enjoy a day of leisure, exploring pretty flower-filled, cobbled side-streets, where you can browse little jewellery and craft shops.
 
Or simply relax over coffee at a sidewalk café, watch the whirl of island life go by and enjoy a bit of ‘Greece and quiet’ (pun intended).
 
In the evening: we’ll toast to our incredible time in Greece at our farewell dinner.
After breakfast, our local representative will escort you to the airport in Santorini, and bid you a safe flight home.
