Detailed Description

The ideas of Greece have always been rounded into certain images: the Parthenon, whitewashed walls with blue roofs, and baklava. These are the quintessential pictures in your head waiting to be seen, touched, and tasted. On this 11-day tour of Greece you will find that there is so much more vibrancy and life to Greece waiting for you along the cliffs of Santorini, the shores of Mykonos, and the gilded streets of Athens. Witness the essentials of Greece and have the experience of lifetime.

Begin your wondrous journey through Greece with your arrival in Athens. Antiquity looms large along the streets and within the sky, rising over the city center. Tour through the Golden Age of Greece and see the Parthenon. Venture around the city’s diverse neighborhoods that often sit within the shadow of the Acropolis, filled with contemporary history and a particular essence, like the bazaar of Monastiraki. When the cityscape begins to become faint in the distance it is because you have made your way to the island of Mykonos.

The beaches of Mykonos are famed for their luxuries and opulence. The sands are warm and the water is clear. The town winds and meanders, once a deterrent for pirates that now lends a charming spirit to the island. With some excitement the island is yours to explore, including the nearby ruins on the island of Delos where gods were born and raised. The beaches of Mykonos will find themselves disappearing into the horizon as you land on the cliffs of Santorini. The whitewashed walls and blue roofs give you the picturesque view you have seen in photos. There is no limit to the brilliance that you can see on the island, from ancient cities to breathtaking views, sunset cruises to wine tasting. Greece is diverse, stunning, and unparalleled; take the chance to witness the essential Greece…and more.
