Detailed Description

Travelers have been flocking to Greece for centuries, seeking to travel and behold the ancient architecture and wondrous history that abounds in this historically-rich locale. While the eclectic history of Greece is often what draws people to its sun-dappled shores, Athens is what really steals visitors’ hearts and keeps them coming back again and again. Therefore, you should prepare to have your hearts stolen as you embark on this luxurious, 7-day luxury adventure of Athens and Santorini.

Your journey together will begin the moment that you arrive in Athens, which is where your private driver will be waiting at the airport. Your driver will immediately whisk you away to your luxurious accommodation in the city. You will waste no time jumping into your Greek adventure together as you embark on your first official excursion in Athens, which will be in the form of a luxurious dinner cruise on a private yacht. Here, you will spend your evening delighting in an intimate meal as you glide along the waters of the Athens Riviera beneath a sparkling sky of stars.

You will venture out the following day to discover Athens and its most famed locales in a unique and exciting way: aboard an e-bike. Your private guide will lead you on a thrilling two-wheeled adventure that will be both educational and exciting. It may also provide you with some great exercise. Following your tour of Athens’ iconic sites, you will adore indulging in the city’s best bites on a gourmet food tour that will lead you through the charming neighborhoods of the capital.

The next day will find you waking up early to find your nirvana in a private yoga session that will be complete with an unmatched view of the Acropolis. Once you are completely at peace, you will spend the remainder of the day and evening on a private sightseeing tour to Cape Sounion, where you will witness fascinating historical gems and a dazzling sunset. Magical Meteora will be your discovery next, and you will fly by helicopter to this ethereal spot to explore it further on foot during a full day’s tour.

You will be provided with one more exhilarating helicopter ride, and this one will transfer you to Santorini. Upon your arrival on this heavenly island, you will be whisked away by a expert guide on an immersive VIP tour. Imagine being able to not only see these amazing Santorini sites but to be able to have a photo of you and your partner at all of your favorite locations in Athens. Your night will then end with a private cooking class, where you will roll up your sleeves and actual cook an authentic Greek meal together under the watchful eye of a master chef.

A day in the great outdoors that is filled with stand up paddle surfing, snorkeling, horseback riding, and even a couple’s massage by the sea is in store for you on day six. This will provide you with the perfect way to culminate your epic getaway to Athens and Santorini.
